With a new perpetrator killed by police, providing ample ‘justification’ for rioting, theft and violence by one group in society, the body cam footage has been released, leading many people to comment that 1. A female officer who can’t tell the difference between a taser and a firearm should not be on the force, and 2. The media only pays attention to violence when it fits a specific narrative.
Brooklyn Center, MN police on Monday released bodycam footage of the moments leading to the fatal shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright.
Daunte Wright was shot and killed by a police officer Sunday night, sparking violent protests.
The bodycam footage shows that Daunte Wright resisted arrest and fled the scene.
Police were in the process of cuffing Wright during a traffic stop when he broke free and jumped in his car.
The officer screamed, “Taser! Taser! Taser!” before she discharged her weapon.
According to the police chief, the officer “accidentally discharged” her weapon instead of using a taser.
Daunte Wright crashed his car after he tried to flee the scene.
•The situation started just before 2 p.m Sunday when officers tried to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation on the 6300 block of Orchard Avenue in the Brooklyn Center area of Minneapolis.
•During the stop police learned the driver, Daunte Wright (20), had an outstanding warrant.
•Police attempted to take him into custody, but Daunte Wright fought with police and got back into the vehicle.
•As the man got back into the vehicle an officer fired her gun hitting Wright.
•Daunte Wright was able to drive several blocks before hitting another vehicle.
•Police said they attempted to revive Wright but he died at the scene.
Today police released the body camera video of the police shooting of Wright during the traffic stop in Brooklyn Center. Police Chief Tim Gannon said the fatal shot was the result of an accidental discharge, and that the officer who shot Wright had intended to reach for her taser, but discharged a handgun instead.
… And the riots and looting began almost immediately.
… And Ben Crump is en route.

Like angst-ridden grunge rock icon Kurt Cobain, young Daunte Wright of Brooklyn Center is said to not have a gun—yet his own braggadocio while sporting a pistol, stacks of money, and Hennessy features his own rap song whose lyrics include his affirmation of having guns. pic.twitter.com/AGgH0hZInW
