10 miles away from where the Derek chauvin trial is taking place, police murdered Daunte Wright, a Black man, today on April 11th. They then left his body on the ground for 6 hours. They pulled him over for having an air freshener obstructing his rear view mirror. This can't be reformed. Abolish the police

20 year old Daunte Wright was murdered by police in Brooklyn Center, a Minneapolis suburb today, April 11th, 2021 during a traffic stop.
As of 7pm, his body is still laying on the ground. Riot cops are on the scene with "less lethals" AND live weapons in response to a large crowd that has formed to hold space for grief and anger. Daunte's mother is there and speaking, and she shared the above photo of Daunte.
The Derek Chauvin trial is currently ongoing and these police are out here still actively murdering our neighbors. ACAB forever.
Say his name and demand Justice for Daunte Wright

I was hoping I wouldn’t spend another summer glued to livestreams, snapmap and police radio because minneapolis killed another black person, but here we are.
I wish nothing but peace and healing for daunte wright’s family.
here’s a link to Minnesota Freedom Fund if anyone wants to donate for bail funds for people arrested last night and throughout the year

I’m not sure I buy that the cop “accidentally” shot Daunte Wright. Tasers are drawn differently and don’t even weigh the same as a handgun.

April 12, 2021. Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. MPR News.
Local police murdered Daunte Wright during a traffic stop yesterday. In response to crowds of protestors demanding body camera footage and justice in general, Minnesota Governor called in National Guard, University of Minnesota Police, and State Patrol. Police deployed tear gas and munitions in a heavily residential area in response to unarmed protestors outside their headquarters after declaring an unlawful assembly and threatening arrests for all people in attendance, including press. The governor has extended a curfew through tonight to provide the police legal coverage in their violence against a mourning and angry community. Local police are also now flying the "Blue Lives Matter" flag, a reminder that police value their gang loyalty to enforce state authority.
This is occurring outside Minneapolis, where George Floyd was murdered by police in 2020 and his murder, Derek Chauvin, is now in the 3rd week of his trial.

Reminder that literally every single person killed by the police was innocent, because they were never proven guilty in a court of law. Innocent until proven guilty is encore tenant of the law. It doesn't matter if they resisted arrest, it doesn't matter if they have a warrant. If they weren't proven guilty in a court of law then they are innocent. End of discussion.
