Killing of Daunte Write 1 draft

In the wake of the anniversary of the George Floyd murder, one could reasonably expect that the Black community would be very afraid of the police. I am Black. I'm afraid of the police.

I think of how I would get shot walking out of my home. I think of how the cops would break into my home and shoot my family. I think of my sons driving, being pulled over and shot. I think, I think, I think...

In the wake of the anniversary of the George Floyd murder, when you are white, what do you think about the police? Do you ever think about these events?  Is there any thinking going on about the safety of yourself or your family in regards to the police? 

Daunte Wright--another name to add to the growing list of "people who don't belong." Allegedly, he was spotted for an expired registration--the registrations have been pulled over for a gross demeanor--definition: "Such crimes may include petty theft, simple assault or driving under the influence of alcohol and/or other drugs." I present this definition to you for you to understand

when asked, "So there’s a perception, I think in the U.S. and around the world that had Daunte Wright been my color this wouldn’t have happened to him. Why is it the police officers in the United States keep killing young black men and young black women, far, far, far higher rate than they do white people?" to that, Police Chief Office, Tim Gannon answered: "I don’t have an answer to that question."

We should already have a process right now on how to deal with the situation. We really demand to know the information of the officer involved in the shooting

At this point the taser should be a different colour entirely so that the citizen realizes they will not be shot to death and teh police officer has no excuse

Do you understand how dehumanizing that was to have a body lay in the street for five hours?

Can't expect Tim Gannon to lead appropriately whethey do not support the Black and Brown community
