Minnesota Mob Intimidates City Council

 

Violence works. Brooklyn Center city counselor voted against her conscience on the firing of the city manager. Her opinion was he was very competent and he was correct on the officers need for due process. She didn’t want to deal with the violent mob. Doing anything that supports the Democrat party is a mistake.

They have done this in several quiet neighborhoods already. One of the leaders got elected to the state legislature.

    Vice President Harris donated to the Minneapolis bailout fund. Hannity just played her rhetoric in support of the violent protesters.

    This is what I was referring to in the original post. The guy got elected. 

     

     

     

     

     

    Start at 7:35. He got elected to the state legislature.

    This probably explains why Daunte Wright resisted arrest: a 2019 armed robbery:

    “Daunte Wright had a warrant out for his arrest for attempted aggravated robbery charges after ‘choking and holding a woman at gunpoint for $820 in 2019,’ court papers reveal

    DailyMail.com can reveal that Wright, 20, had a warrant out for his arrest for attempted aggravated robbery charges at the time
    Charging papers allege Wright and a second man, Emajay Driver, attended a party in December 2019 at the home of two women in Osseo, Minnesota
    The women allowed the pair to crash after they said they didn’t have a ride home
    The next morning, after one of the women went to withdraw $820 in rent money, Wright allegedly held her at gunpoint and demanded she give him the cash
    His bail was originally set at $100k with orders that he should not contact the victim or any witnesses, refrain from drugs and alcohol and not have any weapon
    It was revoked in July last year due to his ‘failure to not possess a firearm or ammunition’ and not keeping in touch with his probation officer
    DailyMail.com has also learned that online speculation that Wright did not know there was a warrant out for his arrest is false”

    I watched the video. The police woman who shot Daunte Wright appears to have thought she was holding a taser. Someone in a comment section at PJMedia said a gun feels very different from a taser. So, either she meant to shoot Daunte Wright and was pretending to be too distracted by the situation to know what she was doing (unlikely, judging by the way she sounded) or it was a fatal accident and this woman shouldn’t have been in police work.
    I’m assuming it was after Wright was killed that all the protesters turned up at Bob Kroll’s house. Will someone explain to me what he had to do with it? Was he in a position to know that this policewoman was incompetent, maybe from her past record or something ?

    She was a 22-year veteran.  She shouted, “Taser! Taser! Taser!” at least once.  For whatever reason, she thought she was holding a taser.

    So, there wasn’t enough intent for murder, but there is certainly enough negligence for manslaughter or negligent homicide.

    Just as there’s no excuse for any other negligent discharge, there’s no excuse for pulling the trigger on a weapon and not knowing what weapon you’re holding.

    Daunte Wright, George Floyd, Michael Brown, etc. etc.  Has anyone noticed that almost every time one of these traffic stops goes bad, the victim is a felon from a prevous run-in with the law?  

    No, it’s not right that these individuals lost their lives but maybe it’s just a good idea to go along with what the police officer says and, if the situation warrants, get a lawyer and take the police officer to court.  Just sayin’.

    I have seen comments elsewhere asserting that one screwup like this proves general incompetence, but I have read of disasters caused by people who were universally regarded as competent and experienced. Why they screwed up that one time can be a mystery. Regardless, we will surely learn more sooner or later.

    I watched the video. The police woman who shot Daunte Wright appears to have thought she was holding a taser. Someone in a comment section at PJMedia said a gun feels very different from a taser. So, either she meant to shoot Daunte Wright and was pretending to be too distracted by the situation to know what she was doing (unlikely, judging by the way she sounded) or it was a fatal accident and this woman shouldn’t have been in police work.
    I’m assuming it was after Wright was killed that all the protesters turned up at Bob Kroll’s house. Will someone explain to me what he had to do with it? Was he in a position to know that this policewoman was incompetent, maybe from her past record or something ?

    She was a 22-year veteran. She shouted, “Taser! Taser! Taser!” at least once. For whatever reason, she thought she was holding a taser.

    So, there wasn’t enough intent for murder, but there is certainly enough negligence for manslaughter or negligent homicide.

    Just as there’s no excuse for any other negligent discharge, there’s no excuse for pulling the trigger on a weapon and not knowing what weapon you’re holding.

    I agree. If , in 22 years, she showed dangerous incompetence on other occasions, would Bob Kroll have known it ? Or has Bob Kroll done things to prevent incompetent officers in general from being fired ?

    FWIW I read elsewhere that she’s a 26-year veteran.

    I have seen comments elsewhere asserting that one screwup like this proves general incompetence, but I have read of disasters caused by people who were universally regarded as competent and experienced. Why they screwed up that one time can be a mystery. Regardless, we will surely learn more sooner or later.

    Yes, maybe for instance, she was trained so well that she was following a script; she called out Taser! as she was supposed to do, I assume.  Stuff happens.  Even screw-ups.
