In 2004, Michael Bell Sr.’s 21-year-old son was shot and killed by a Kenosha officer during a struggle after a traffic stop in front of his home. So when Bell saw the disturbing video of the shooting of Jacob Blake, an unarmed 29-year-old man shot in the back multiple times by a Kenosha officer as he tried to get inside a car with his children inside, he said he sympathized with the family’s trauma.

Bell said he was also alarmed to see the distraught woman screaming and jumping up and down as the officer fired seven times at Blake on video taken by a bystander.
