SEEN ON FACEBOOK: “The NFL is letting players put Jacob Blake’s name on their helmets, a guy who raped a 15 year old girl. This is the same NFL that refused the Cowboy’s request to honor 5 slain Dallas cops with a patch on their uniforms.”

The NFL has chosen sides. Act accordingly.

UPDATE: Eugene Volokh emails: “Glenn: My understanding is that Jacob Blake was accused of sexually assaulting his adult girlfriend, not a 15-year-old. See https://archive.is/YcYRU and https://nypost.com/2020/08/28/this-is-why-jacob-blake-had-a-warrant-out-for-his-arrest/ . Am I missing something here?”

Research indicates that Eugene is right: Fact check: Jacob Blake does not have an arrest warrant for having sex with a minor. “While Blake, a Black man who was partially paralyzed after being shot by the police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, does have an arrest warrant for third-degree sexual assault, the claim that these charges involved sex with a minor is false.”

Happy to correct the error.
