another man killed in minneapolis. at a traffic stop, because a police officer made a mistake in choosing to grab her gun rather than a taser.
his name: Daunte Wright

Couple blocks away from Daunte Wright’s death, is an ongoing trial for a police officer who killed George Floyd by kneeling on his neck for nine minutes.
