After the riots, and the looting, and the idiots breaking the law over NOTHING! Body cam shows another instance where the so called “black victim” of a white mother is actually is the one who brought his own death on himself by not doing as he was being told by the police to do. Wright, a 20-year-old was fatally shot sadly and again by police in suburban Minneapolis.
Bodycam footage suggests the officer may have meant to fire a Taser but shot a gun by mistake and I got the footage here as it does indeed show the officers own reactions were that of someone who knows they just made a major mistake, and this wasn’t intentional. But again had the white/black suspect being detained not reacted how he did he would be alive now. ONCE Again showing the narrative being sold doesn’t always match the actual events which took place. This is why people need to STOP acting from emotion, and watch the events as they unfold, and look at the bodycam footage.
You cannot act this way with the cops no matter what your skin color is an expect them not to react this way. I’ve been pulled over before, and I avoid getting show because I’m friendly, I follow their instructions, and I’m not involved in anything illegal! IF you have nothing to hide from the police than why act like this? This only shows you’re guilty of something and it’s the cops job to keep criminals off the streets right? This is what cops are paid for. Protect, and serve, and keep criminals from harming others. While it’s sad, and heart breaking to see a young man lose his life this way, and I feel for his mother, and family it’s not something which should cause riots.
Moments before he was killed, Daunte Wright called his mother and told her he got pulled over. She had no idea it would be the last time she would speak with her son. The 20-year-old needed to get insurance information, his mother Katie Wright said. “I said OK, when the police officer comes back to the window, put him on the phone and I can give him all our insurance information,” she said.
“A second goes by, and I hear the police officer come back up to the window and ask Daunte to get out of the car. Daunte asked, ‘For what?’ The police officer said, ‘I’ll explain to you when you get out of the car.'”
The mother said she could hear the police and her son struggling. “Then the police officer asked him to hang up the phone,” Katie Wright said. “Three or four seconds went by. I tried calling back to back to back because I didn’t know what was going on.” At worst, she thought, maybe he was being arrested. She soon saw it was much worse. “When I called back, the girl that he had in the car answered the phone, and it was on FaceTime. And she was crying and screaming and said that they shot him. And then she pointed the phone towards the driver’s seat and my son was laying there, unresponsive. That was the last time that I seen my son,” she said, sobbing.
“That’s the last time I heard from my son. And I’ve had no explanation since then.” Police in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, said Wright was initially pulled over Sunday afternoon for an expired tag. Bodycam footage shows that after Wright stepped out of the car and then got back in, an officer said she was going to use a Taser on him. But instead of shooting a Taser, Officer Kim Potter fired a handgun, screaming “Oh sh*t! I shot him,” as Wright was mortally wounded.
Both the officer and the police chief have resigned. A toddler is now fatherless. And the Minneapolis area, already grappling with the death of George Floyd, now mourns another death of a man during a police encounter. ‘They stole my son’s dad from him’ said his mother as Wright leaves behind a young son, Daunte Wright Jr., who was supposed to see his dad to celebrate his upcoming 2nd birthday.
“Now my son, he don’t have a dad,” said the boy’s mother, Chyna Whitaker. “His dad won’t get to see him for his second birthday or for any of his birthdays. And I’m just so messed up about it because I feel like they stole my son’s dad from him. How do we put life back together after this?’ Naisha Wright made the cross-country road trip from her home in Alabama to Minnesota after learning about her nephew’s death.
“My nephew was 20 years old. I don’t care what nobody got to say about him. He was loved,” Naisha Wright said, acknowledging the strong family built by the young man’s parents. “This is no broken home. This is 23 years of love.” But now, the family has been shattered after Wright’s death. “My mother shouldn’t have to be burying her grandchild. My brother and my sister shouldn’t be burying their son.” said Naisha Wright.
The explanation that Wright was killed accidentally gives zero comfort to his family. “I cannot accept that. I lost my son. He’s never coming back,” Wright’s father Aubrey Wright told ABC’s “Good Morning America” Tuesday. “I can’t accept that … mistake. That doesn’t even sound right. You know, this officer has been on the force for 26-plus years. I can’t accept that.” The case is being investigated by an independent agency, and it’s not clear if Potter will be charged. Katie Wright said she “would like to see justice served and her held accountable for everything she’s taken from us.” And we agree there should be justice for her, and the family this man left behind. But again had he not done what he did he would still be alive today. The blame here goes both ways… Check out the footage below.
