The Real Reason for Daunte Wright’s

Original Article

Posted By: DVC, 4/15/2021 6:19:46 PM

We will never hear the last of these names. Eric Garner. Alton Sterling. Michael Brown. George Floyd. Rashad Brooks. And now Daunte Wright. We will never hear the last of them because there will always be more. And because certain people are invested in forcing us to hear about them. But what they demand we hear isn’t the truth. Is it a tragedy that Daunte Wright is dead? Of course it is. Should he have been shot dead on Sunday by a Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, police officer? Why, no, he shouldn’t have been.


This is 98% on Mr. Wright's choices to be a violent felon, fighting with police after being caught with a warrant for armed robbery and assault.
Same story, time and time again. Punk gets a gun, starts robbing people and then goes up against the police with fatal results. The only twist here is that the officer had a brain failure (training failure) and used a 3 lb gun instead of a 1/2 lb Taser. Still, Mr. Wright set all of these wheels in motion by himself.

So George Floyd's girlfriend was Daunte Wright's teacher. Why do I thing there's more to this story. Also, there was a senior Government official that flew a Government plane into Minneapolis the day before the Floyd shooting. Same plane with the same official flew into Minneapolis the day before Dauntes shooting.

The best article on this guy that I’ve seen anywhere. Never mind George Floyd’s girlfriend. The “more to this story” is this young man’s history that the media have worked so hard to conceal from us.

The bottom line is that had Wright survived this encounter he most likely would have met the same end at a later date.

Wright would still be alive if he did what he was ordered to do by the police officers. Instead, he chose to fight the police and try and drive away. How many times has this happened around the country with black males? Apparently they feel they don't have to obey the laws because they're special. While increased training might help, it wasn't the lack of training that caused Daunte Wright's death. It was Daunte Wright's lack of following the law.

The real reason is that BLM has no intention of getting anywhere near the south side of Chicago. They ain't buying houses there, They ain't spending the weekend there and BLM couldn't care less how many black kids die there every weekend. I the white supremacist racist bastid care. Stop the BS and stop the killing of our children.

This is a good piece but I have one huge beef with it at a time when our firearms rights are under attack. It's difficult to protect rights if people don't even KeKe what they are. Wright wasn't in trouble for not having a "firearm permit" Americans don't need permits to have guns. No, Wright had a gun while out on bail for an aggravated robbery. His bail was revoked for that and he had a warrant for that the day he died.

FTA: “ So long as this tragic cycle can’t be called out for the horrific farce that it is, it will continue. But it can’t. And the next Daunte Wright will only keep the wheel turning around and around.” Bingo! This will be a regular occurrence because that’s the way that democrats need it to be. They always benefit from the hatred and violence that is a result of these situations. They have a victim and more importantly, they have a villain. The victim is black, the villain is white. That is the narrative that gives democrats power and makes the victim’s family rich. It has nothing to do with the incident being predicated on a complete rejection of authority. That is never mentioned by the left. They want to vilify the police in order to deify the victim. The past of the victim is never to be revealed. The personal responsibility of the victim to refrain from resisting arrest is never mentioned. The democrats will continue to use these easily prevented shootings if they would just honestly address the root cause of these terrible situations. They would rather use a false narrative to incite hate and division than to actually try and prevent more of the same. This is a winning strategy for these venal democrats and they are not giving it up any time soon. Expect more of the same because it benefits the democrat party.

I blame the media for the perception that police officers are going around willy-nilly killing Black people. If not for the -unrealistic- perception that young Black males are being killed in numbers totally out of proportion to reality, there would probably be last inclination to resist arrest. They themselves escalate the situation by resisting, all too frequently leading to a situation in which they end up dying.

People who point out that Martin, Brown, Floyd, Wright had a criminals records are NOT doing it to justify their killings. But that is what is being implied or in many cases bluntly stated. "That doesn't mean he had to be killed" is the worst racist and socially destructive statement of today. because it is giving shelter and camouflage to facts and reality that will bring forth more such killings and finally metastasize into weakening and destroying our social fabric. Why would anyone do such a thing. Because it contributes towards keeping blacks separate from main stream culture and ensures a 90% vote bank for Liberal Democrats who have nothing else to offer to the people. Remember Trump's appeal "What do you have to lose"? In the spat between Riviera and Bonino, I am 101% with Bonino.

The police are not helping themselves. Unarmed persons, whatever their past, are being shot dead for fighting with the cops. They are then made martyrs while the cops retreat to create an explanation delivered at a press conference. It's no better optics than the FBI kicking in Roger Stone's door with CNN on the scene. So, support the badge. Some introspection is in order for law enforcement as well as "the community".

The race hustlers have made quite a profitable industry out of these events. But I doubt Crump will be able to pull $27 million out of Brooklyn Center. It has long been a 'modest' suburb that abuts the poorest end of Minneapolis. When the Mayor was asked about insurance liability for the city he mumbled an unsatisfying answer and no one dared ask a follow-up. Perhaps the state taxpayers will be forced to cover Crump's payout.

when the writer finished by saying the wheel keeps turning around, he nailed it. we all know the circle as soon as the first reports come out. we already know that no pictures of an offender means they were black. that if the story gets no coverage the victim is white or asian. that a bunch if elected or appointed officials will be discovered to be incompetent. That a member of the black defense attorney's bar organization will magically appear to defend to honor of the black dead perp(for 30 or 40% of the take, Those custom suits don't come cheap), and the tax payers will be stuck with paying for a settlement they didn't approve, and some store owners will be burned out and looted(we can't all belong to the black defense attorney bar). I know the solution and you know the solution, but it requires officials with spines and a "you loot, we shoot" credible policy. It will happen, and the sooner it does, the less blood shed and violence,

If he hadn't been killed in what appears to be a real tragic accident on the officer's part, no one would know of Daunte and probably within a few more years, would have been shot any another black thug.

To #13: Duante Wright: his unnecessary death, as are all such deaths, a real tragedy. Was it "caused" by police? No, it was caused by Wright's own choices in life. Could it be characterized as a suicide by cop? Perhaps... Could it be characterized as a suicide by his willful choice of a lifestyle of crime and ignorance? Without question.

I thought Minneapolis was a Democrat and Muslim city. They must be feeling the demographic pressure of the Latinix. Promoting racial hatred will not end well for our Nation. The Democrats should follow my example of being color blind and having Black friends. Soon the Democrats are going to need the Latino and Asian vote more and will spread out the welfare. The African-Americans will have to go back to primary school to compete in society.

The other night, I left the TV on Turner Classic Movies and went to walk the dogs. I came back to find my usually cellphone-centric 14-year-old niece Peilin watching The Heiress, a classic 1949 anti-romantic drama with the elegant language of the Henry James source novel, Washington Square. We watched the rest of the film together, Peilin spellbound by its fundamental mystery. Does handsome suitor Morris Townsend (Montgomery Clift) truly love plain spinster Catherine Sloper (Best Actress Oscar winner Olivia de Havilland), or is he only after her fortune? I observed Peilin’s engrossment with renewed hope for the next generation of American women. It lasted till I saw Kung Fu.

Their judgment simply did not matter to the three women who founded BLM. In the ongoing Minneapolis trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, BLM

I think that few would deny that, in 2020, Anthony Fauci, the highest-paid federal bureaucrat in America, also managed to leverage himself into the position of the most consequential person in America. He had only to express a whim about the behavioral changes necessary to defend America against the dreaded Wuhan virus, and America bowed down. In 2021, even though he's proven to be consistently wrong, the all too powerful mainstream media still promote him as an oracle. It's doubtful that even Fauci's latest muddled statements about Texas will change that point of view.

Now that King Kong is back in action in a new blockbuster, the super-hyped Godzilla vs Kong, with a mammoth budget matching the scale of the two protagonists (some $160 to $200 million), patriots should note who the real hero of the Kong saga is. It’s not the fictional monster pitted against the rapacious, prehistoric reptile. No, it’s the man who created Kong: aviator, explorer, and film producer Merian C. Cooper. Cooper (1893-1973) was a bomber pilot in the First World War. He invented a unique artillery-spotting technique—flying close to ground level to draw enemy fire.

Much is made of China's dominance in the rare earth elements (REE). Currently, China controls over 90% of the refined or processed market for REEs. Most advanced technologies, including weapon systems, depend on REEs, and adequate substitutes do not exist. On the surface, China's monopolistic control over refined REEs induces a severe case of the vapors among U.S. national security analysts. But how extensive and stable is China's control of the REE market? If China's market control is neither extensive nor stable, perhaps doing nothing or policies that target China's Achilles heel would be the U.S.'s best course of action.
