Kenosha Police Chief Blames Protesters For Riot Deaths

Kenosha’s police chief has blamed protesters for the deaths that too place during riots.

“Everybody involved was out after the curfew,” Chief Daniel Miskinis said. “The point is, the curfew is in place to protect. Had persons not been out involved in violation of that, perhaps the situation that unfolded would not have happened. The result of it is two people dead,” he said.

Miskinis vowed to crack down on curfew-breakers, as officers, including some in plainclothes and unmarked cars started “yanking” protesters from the streets.

It was mostly a night of peaceful protests and a vigil, but riots broke out Sunday night, after the shooting of Jacob Blake.
