You would think Daunte Wright was a saint with the way he’s been portrayed in the media after he fought cops and resisted arrest, which led to his accidental death.
So why did he get stopped in the first place? According to Fox News, the car he was driving had expired plates.
Fox News also explains why there was a warrant for his arrest and it’s not a pretty story:
Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Black man shot by a police officer in a Minneapolis suburb Sunday afternoon, had an open warrant for his arrest related to an aggravated armed robbery attempt when he was killed, according to court records.
Wright and another man, identified as Emajay Maurice Driver, a high school acquaintance, had both been charged with first-degree aggravated robbery in a December 2019 incident in Osseso, Minn., Hennepin County District Court documents show.
According to the documents, Wright and Driver went to a party at an apartment in the 600 block of North Oaks Drive in Osseo – about 5 miles from Brooklyn Center, where Wright was fatally shot.
Around 2:30 a.m., two women at the home told Wright and Driver they needed to leave, but the two men said they did not have a ride, the documents say. The women reportedly allowed the Wright and Driver to spend the night.
In the morning, one of the two women left the apartment to get $820 in cash to pay the other for rent. After paying the rent, she left for work.
As Wright and Driver were waiting for their rides, the other woman who stayed behind said Wright allegedly blocked the door, preventing her from leaving. Wright then allegedly pulled a black handgun “with silver trim out from either his right waistband or his right coat pocket,” pointed it at the woman and demanded the $820, the court documents say.
The victim asked him, “Are you serious?” to which he allegedly responded, “Give me the f—ing money, I know you have it,” according to the court documents.
When she asked again if he was serious, he allegedly told her, “I’m not playing around.”
Wright then allegedly choked the woman while trying to pull the cash out from under her bra, where she had tucked it away.
The court documents say she was able to pry herself loose and “started to kneel down and scream.” She told authorities that she allegedly heard Driver tell her to give the money to Wright, who was yelling at her to stop screaming.
She reportedly screamed at them to get out of her apartment, telling them that the cops were close. Wright allegedly told her he would shoot her and said, “Give me the money and we will leave, give me the money and we will go.”
He allegedly tried to choke her a second time and tried to take her money, according to the court documents. Driver allegedly told her to give Wright the money. The two men then left the apartment, got into a white Cadillac, and left the scene without the money. The woman later identified Wright and Driver via photo line-ups.
Wright was arrested and later released on $100,000 bail. As a condition of his release, he was not to have contact with the victim or witnesses, had to refrain from drugs and alcohol, and could not possess a firearm.
Wright’s bail was revoked in July because he allegedly possessed a firearm and was not keeping in touch with his probation officer, according to documents obtained by Fox News.
The case was still pending when Wright was pulled over Sunday for having an expired license plate. Police then tried to arrest him on an outstanding warrant after failing to appear in court on charges that he fled from officers and possessed a gun without a permit during an encounter with Minneapolis police in June.
So there’s the real story on what he was stopped and why cops were trying to arrest him. Daunte lived like a thug and he died like one too. If he hadn’t resisted arrest and fought cops none of this would have ever happened. I’m not saying the officer isn’t at fault. She obviously is and I’m sure she will pay for her mistake. But Daunte’s actions are the reason this went down the way it did and that’s something you will not hear from the left trying to use Wright like they used George Floyd.
