Hands up, don’t choke.
Daunte Wright was allegedly pulled over for having expired license plate tags, although he called his mother and told her it was for having an air freshener hanging on his rear-view mirror. While checking his details, Potter and other officers learned of the warrant.
What was that warrant for?
Wright was due to face trial on a charge of attempted aggravated robbery – with a possible maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
What was involved? The usual George Floyd stuff. To be a BLM martyr worth rioting for, you’ve gotta assault women.
In the morning, one of the women went to the bank to get her $820 rent money which she gave to the other woman and then left for work. As Wright, Driver and the second woman were leaving, Wright allegedly tried to hold up the woman.
Defendant Wright then pulled a black handgun with silver trim out from either his right waistband or his right coat pocket and pointed it at victim and demanded the rent money,’ continued Mikkelson.
‘Victim said “Are you serious?” Defendant Wright replied: “Give me the f**king money, I know you have it.”
When the woman again asked him if he was serious, Wright is said to have replied: ‘I’m not playing around.’
Mikkelson’s report said: ‘The $820 cash was tucked in the victim’s bra and defendant Wright placed his hand around victim’s neck and choked her while trying to pull the cash from under her bra.
‘Victim was able to get loose from defendant Wright and started to kneel down and scream.’
After more yelling, Wright allegedly told the woman that he was going to shoot her unless he got the money.
‘Give me the money and we will leave,’ he allegedly said. ‘Give me the money and we will go.’
Mikkelson added: ‘Defendant Wright then tried to choke victim a second time and tried to take her money. Defendant Driver was telling her to give defendant Wright the money.
‘Defendant Driver then said: “Let’s go,” and the two defendants left and got into a white Cadillac and left the scene,’ wrote Mikkelson.
The Caddy is a nice detail.
Daunte attacked and choked a woman. Then he ran into a woman he couldn’t choke while resisting arrest. So it’s time to loot local stores, and mostly peacefully assault police officers in one of those insurrections whose participants won’t be hunted by the FBI or sent to prison.
