The city of Minneapolis is still in the eyes of the hurricane. Less than a year ago, in May 2020, George Floyd was killed by a police officer. The trial is going on in these days, and it’s approaching the third week, waiting for a decision, The judiciary sentenced those responsible for Freud’s death.
But this Sunday, I experienced a very similar episode in this city A 20-year-old black man stopped and killed him while driving and was killed by the police., It seems to be a transportation ticket. In addition, everything happened only 15 kilometers away from Freud’s death.
As there is no body camera record of the police, the facts are not very clear. Everything shows that the murdered young black Daunte Wright was stopped while driving on the streets of Minneapolis. Obviously because it violated the rules in circulation.
According to the police, after asking for the documents, they realized that Wright had a pending arrest warrant. When the officer was about to leave and handcuffed him to take him away, Wright returned to his car and drove.At that time When an officer opened fire on a vehicle and wounded him. The car continued to drive multiple streets until it collided with another car.
However, the young mother’s version is completely different. According to the woman, Katie, they called her when he was detained to obtain information about vehicle insurance because he gave her the car not long ago. Katie claims that Wright told her that he was detained for having air freshener Hanging on his rearview mirror, the police did not confirm this fact because they did not specify which traffic rule he violated.
His mother described the phone: “I told him that when the police returned to the window, he would put him on the phone and then give him insurance information.” Then he heard the police officer approach the window and said: “Hang up the phone and get out of the car.”, Wright asked the reason, and he said: “When you get out of the car, we will explain to you.”
“After a minute, I call The girlfriend of the co-pilot in the car replied that he was shot dead. She focused the video call on the driver’s side, where he lay lifeless, “Katie explained to the assembly media on Sunday afternoon.” I heard a discussion and the police said, “Suicide Squad, don’t run,” she concluded. .
After the news spread, citizens learned the facts and several protests began throughout the city, demanding justice for Floyd and now Daunte Wright. Heard a loud explosion, saw smoke Many people gathered near the headquarters of the Brooklyn Central Police Department.
Although the protest started peacefully, the police asked the assemblers to disperse, and they did not do so. So they started to try to dissolve the assembled. In addition, several shops in the area were also looted.
Finally, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz said on his Twitter account that he has been closely following the “situation in the Brooklyn Center.” “Mourning for another black man who died at the hands of the police.”
