No police officers will be charged over shooting of black man left paralysed

 Jacob Blake, 29, was left paralysed from the waist down after a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin, shot him multiple times.

He released a statement from his hospital bed after he appeared in court via a Zoom call in September to plead not guilty to charges of criminal trespass, sexual assault, and disorderly conduct.

Speaking from his hospital bed, he said: "Your life, and not only just your life, your legs, something you need to move around and forward in life, can be taken from you like this, man.

"And I promise you the type of s**t you go through, staples, I got staples in my back, staples in my damn stomach, you do not want to deal with this s**t, man.

Jacob Blake, 29, was rushed to hospital following the shooting 

"Twenty-four hours, every twenty-four hours it's pain, nothing but pain."

He added: "It hurts to breathe, it hurts to sleep, it hurts to move from side to side, it hurts to eat. Please, I'm telling you, change your lives.

"Stick together, make some money, make everything easier for our people out there, man, because there's so much time that's been wasted."
