BLM activist Shaun King on Sunday threatened to name innocent cops as Jacob Blake's shooter if the Kenosha Police Department does not unveil the identity of the police officer who was involved.

In a series of tweets, King named an officer — with absolutely no proof to back his claim — whose name went viral on social media, saying he was "in protective custody in a hotel because people thought he shot Jacob Blake."

The anti-police advocate also posted a photo of a second officer, accompanied by his first and last name, asking followers to determine if it matched the identity of the cop who allegedly shot Blake.

King has repeatedly lauded the riots and violence across the country in the wake of George Floyd's death in May. He has also endlessly called for the defunding of the police force.

On Monday, King called for the "complete dismantling of American policing."
