MINNESOTA MAYOR: ‘I Don’t Believe That Officers Need Weapons’ for ‘Every Traffic Stop’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.13.21

The Mayor of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota weighed-in on the police shooting of Daunte Wright Tuesday; saying he does not believe officers “need weapons” for “every traffic stop.”

“I don’t believe that officers need to necessarily have weapons every time they’re making a traffic stop or are engaged in situations that don’t call for weapons,” said Mayor Mike Elliot.

 

The Police Chief of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota and the officer who fatally shot Daunte Wright over the weekend will both resign from their positions effective immediately after two days of civil unrest in Minneapolis and other sections of the state.

Police Chief Tim Gannon and Officer Kim Potter left the department Tuesday afternoon.

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib erupted on social media Monday night after the shooting of a 20-year-old man by police in Minnesota; saying “no more policing, incarceration, and militarization” because the system “can’t be reformed.”

“It wasn’t an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist. Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed,” wrote the far-left lawmaker on social media.

 

Minneapolis witnessed a second night of clashes between police and rioters Monday evening following the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright just miles away.

“Hundreds gathered outside the Brooklyn Center Police Department Monday and defied curfew. They demanded justice for Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man fatally shot by police during a traffic stop,” reports Fox News.

“Authorities fired tear gas, and flash-bang grenades into the crowd after warning them that they were in violation of curfew. Some rioters retaliated by throwing smoke canisters back toward law enforcement, while others launched fireworks at the police lines, according to reports,” adds Fox.

“Move back!” the police chanted. “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” the crowd yelled back.

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz imposed a 7PM curfew for Minneapolis Monday afternoon; deploying the National Guard to impose law and order.

 

“Prayers are not enough,” tweeted Vice President Kamala Harris. “Daunte Wright should still be with us. While an investigation is underway, our nation needs justice and healing, and Daunte’s family needs to know why their child is dead—they deserve answers.”
