It’s becoming a real pandemic. It’s predictable, as soon as there is a shooting, there are looting and violence and sometimes even death as a response.
A state of emergency has been declared in Minneapolis, Minnesota after a Daunte Wright was shot and killed by police during a traffic stop that went horribly wrong. Shortly after, as predicted a wave of looting and rioting started. Because as we all know looting goods from stores is justice for the fallen!
The police have issued a statement on the incident:
“It is my belief that the officer had the intention to deploy their Taser, but instead shot Mr. Wright with a single bullet,” Chief Tim Gannon of the Brooklyn Center Police Department said in a Monday press conference. “This appears to me, from what I viewed, and the officer’s reaction and distress immediately after, that this was an accidental discharge that resulted in a tragic death of Mr. Wright.” The Daily Wire reported.
“It goes without saying that it’s devastated and heartbreaking that we’re here once again to address the death of a young Black man with an interaction with police,” Minnesota Governor Tim Walz said in his own press conference Monday, alongside Minneapolis and St. Paul officials who urged would-be looters and rioters to remain indoors. “As the world is watching during the trial of Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd emotions and trauma are high in our state.” The Daily Wire continued.
In a separate article written for the Daily Wire, conservative commentator, Matt Walsh wrote:
“Consider the fact that between January 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021 there have been 507 white people shot to death by police, compared to 271 black people. And yet nobody knows the name of any of those white people, save one: Ashli Babbitt. She was an unarmed woman shot in the neck and killed by Capitol Police on January 6. We know her name not because BLM rallied to her cause, but because they so conspicuously refused to do so. Indeed, her death was more likely to be celebrated by the very people who’d spent the previous year pretending to care about the killing of unarmed civilians.”
It’s an important point to make, especially now that it has become an inflamed issue. It’s possible that it’s an inflamed issue by design tho. There is no doubt that racial tensions have been a tool of the left to keep the blacks on side.
