The Brooklyn Center police union leader praised the officer who detained and injured Katie Wright for filming the same kind of traffic stop that got her son, Daunte Wright, killed last year. Chuck Valleau called it a “professional response."
Former police officer Kim Potter testified in her own defense and appeared to cry when discussing her killing of Daunte Wright. However, her dry eyes suggested she was simply shedding "white tears" to angle for an acquittal.
Brooklyn Center authorities released information pertaining to Potter's service file, which could be viewed as an attempt to persuade the public's perception after Potter shot and killed Wright in the midst of a traffic stop on April 11.
Mike Elliott, mayor of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, the Minneapolis suburb where Daunte Wright was killed by a police officer, called for cops to stop using pepper spray and other controversial non-violent methods.
Maxine Waters stood with protestors in Minnesota over the weekend, enraging Republicans who accused her of “domestic terrorism” for saying that people should stay in the streets.
Minnesota sports teams postponed games Monday out of respect for Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Brooklyn Center man killed by police during a traffic stop on Sunday.
While addressing reporters on Monday, Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon said that Wright's death occurred after an officer made an “accidental discharge” from her gun, instead of using her taser.
Outraged Brooklyn Center community members are calling for justice and transparency after another unarmed Black man was shot to death on Sunday, reportedly over air fresheners obstructing a rear view mirror.
