Jacob Blake spoke publicly for the first time since a cop from Kenosha, Wisconsin, shot him seven times in the back, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. In the video he appears in the hospital bed and claims he is in constant pain from the shooting.

Jacob Blake: only a miracle could save him

“Twenty-four hours, every 24 hours is pain, nothing but pain. It hurts to breathe, it hurts to sleep, it hurts to move back and forth, it hurts to eat”

He said in Saturday night’s video on Twitter by his family’s lawyer, Benjamin Crump. Although it was he who posted this video on Twitter, it is unclear who recorded it. It is also not known what happened before this video was recorded.

Dressed in his hospital gown, Blake, 29, a father of six, said he has staples on his back and stomach.

But he doesn’t lose hope. He said he has “much more life ahead of him” despite his life-altering injuries.

Blake was shot seven in the back by a white policeman on August 23 after moving away from the officer and two others trying to arrest him. Everything was video-recorded.

Blake, who had an arrest warrant pending when he was shot, pleaded not guilty on Friday on charges of sexually assaulting a woman in May and waived his right to a preliminary hearing.

Here’s Jacob Blake’s powerful message from the hospital

He appeared by videoconference from his bed at the Milwaukee hospital, wearing a dress shirt and tie. He only spoke to answer questions from the judge, Kenosha County Commissioner Loren J. Keating.

Keating found that there was enough evidence to send the matter to trial, which was set for November 9.

Blake’s shooting was recorded and sparked protests in Kenosha and elsewhere. During one of the demonstrations, Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, from Antioch, Illinois, was accused of fatally shooting two people and injuriating a third.
