Daunte Wright: Protests break out across the country over police shooting

A riot was declared in Portland, Oregon, and many other cities across the United States witnessed angry protests following the police shooting of Daunte Wright in Minnesota. As many as 40 people were arrested in Brooklyn Center, the city on the outskirts of Minneapolis where Wright was killed, after a second night of violence. Protests were also held in Los Angeles, Seattle and Washington, D.C.

Cause of death, disobeying an order from a police officer. We can prevent all off these deaths if people just stop resisting. Sorry, but if after soo many incidents you still resist when you get pulled over, then you are the one to blame. I have seen tonnes of videos off police shooting drivers that try to get away, and the colour of the driver in these situations is completely irrelevant. By shooting him they prevented a lengthy pursuit that likely would have injured or even killed other people.

I think rather than jumping to conclusions we should wait on a) the reason this person had a warrant and b) the body camera footage to make good judgement. All too often people run to judgement one way or the other. I think police practice can be refined, however they still need to deal with criminals.

I wish we'd see this kind of outrage and protest whenever a young innocent person is gunned down in Chicago. We need culture reform.

One has to wonder if a prerequisite to being a police officer in the US is to have an IQ lower than your boot size. Why not try to de-escalate a situation rather than draw and shoot at the first hint of possible confrontation (recently shown to be usually police initiated).

Odd how the news reports Daunte Wright, Dominique Williams and James Johnson being shot by police but seem to ignore: 5th April - Roy Jackel Jr. 3rd April - Jeffery Appelt 3rd April - Jose Arenas 2nd April - Natzeryt Viertel All reports on Noah Green seem to have gone quiet. ....its almost as if there's some sort of narrative of cops targeting a certain race that is being pushed. Nah, must be my imagination.

This man was wanted on a gun warrant. If anyone is defending him they need to consider that he was illegally possessing a firearm, a deadly weapon.

He had a warrent, ran to his car to avoid arrest. Don't do that. Play stu🏋️id games win the ultimate prize.

Ok there are so many wrong opinions on here. First if it were a white person shoot and killed no one would put it in the news let's get real here. Before you try I have black brothers I would die for. I believe in personal choices your skin color does not make you a victim your actions do. All these fatal cases are resisting arrest so let's blame the cop ignorant people. Were is all this outrage for the real victims of the property owners the innocent people dieing in the streets from drive by shootings I could go on. No let's raise hell over criminals getting them selves killed for poor choices. Society is full of some real winners.

Running back to your car during an arrest and reaching in to it, can get you shot. It looks like you're going for a weapon. it could get you killed. That's not going to change.

I'm sick of hearing this kind of news. We need real police reform, not 10 more years of random people getting shot for no reason and 10 more years of no systemic change. If the police won't change to fix their own issues, we will do it for them.

More training required to tilt the balance of overpowering in order disescalate the conflict. Even with that, there will be a transition time for people to feel confident with the law enforcement. All efforts count.

Get ready for the tolerant team of BLMers in your area to show everyone how compassionate they are.

The problem is cops are people who have mental problems from being bullied when they were kids. They grow up with a chip on their shoulder thinking they have something to prove. That’s why cops bully the people they pull over. The cops who shoot people they pull over are to cowardly to use other methods to get a suspect under control. They are like little spring lambs. On the other hand federal law enforcement officials are usually educated professionals who do their jobs with honor.

I'm not sure if the white supremacists here realize that disobeying police is not casue to kill someone. I can't believe I even have to say that in America. It's almost like they don't know you have rights even if you have broken the law...

Terrible for the citizens and employees in the community. I do not see the connection between police issues and a valid reason to loot and destroy the community. Reaction in violence and such before all the facts are known is criminal to me. Hopefully some of the criminals got arrested and will be charged.

He definitely deserved force being used to stop him from fleeing, but it looks like the cop also screwed up in the process.

Watch Out! He's got an air freshener and he knows how to use it! Maybe threat assessment would complement de-escalation training. Or maybe we only give the deputy one bullet and make sure he keeps it in his shirt pocket.

Another good reason to attack your local businesses and destroy your neighborhoods. Even if they had nothing to do with the situation.

This is getting old. Any time there is a police shooting now that involves a black person, there is automatically a "protest." People need to wait for the investigation to be completed before jumping to conclusions. For all we know that man could have pulled a weapon on the police officer and that was the reason he was shot. So wait for the whole story..
