No charges will be filed against the police officer who shot Jacob Blake in the back over the summer. The shooting of Blake, who was left paralyzed, drew national outrage.

Kenosha Police Officer Rusten Sheskey responded to a domestic dispute when he fired his weapon seven times as Blake attempted to get inside an SUV. Blake’s three children were in the back seat. There is speculation that Blake was armed during the incident.

Sheskey and other officers knew that Blake had a felony warrant out for his arrest, that he had the keys to a car that was in dispute, and that at least with officers and had been tased three times before the shooting. He claimed that Tasers had little effect on Blake, who removed the Taser prongs and continued to walk towards the car.

The officers involved remain on administrative leave.

The markets were mixed this morning as investors waited for word on who won the much-anticipated Senate runoff elections in Georgia.

As of now, it looks like Democratic challenger Raphael Warnock will win against Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler, but it is unclear who will get the other seat. The race between Republican incumbent David Perdue and Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff is very close right now.

“Consensus seems to believe that if Dems win both seats, this is negative for stocks because of the risk of higher taxes,” said one analyst. “But market expectations about election outcome are not really reliable. I don’t know the future, but to me, the ‘uncertainty’ of the election is arguably a bigger overhang then the actual outcome.”

How are stock futures reflecting this uncertainty right now?
