Laquisha Booker is the fiancee of Jacob Blake; the 29-year-old man shot multiple times by a Kenosha police officer while his children watched.
“They saw a cop shoot their father. They will be traumatized forever,” civil-rights attorney Ben Crump said on Twitter. “We cannot let officers violate their duty to PROTECT us. Our kids deserve better!!”
Mr. Blake was rushed to a hospital where he underwent surgery and remains in the intensive care unit fighting for his life. A day after the shooting, Jacob’s father said his son was paralyzed from the waist down.
“I want to put my hand on my son’s cheek and kiss him on his forehead, and then I’ll be OK,” his father said. “I’ll kiss him with my mask. The first thing I want to do is touch my son.”
“That don’t make no sense to treat somebody like that, who is not armed, with the kids in the back screaming,” she said.
28-year-old Laquisha Nashay Booker is the mother of four beautiful boys; she attended College of Lake County and is a dental assistant in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Her colleagues said for the past three years Ms. Booker has been an awesome dental assistant for their little patients; she is gentle, patient and loves working with children.
Ms. Booker loves to cook, go for a run and journaling.
