Daunte Wright is dead, killed by a police officer. Let’s see if we can follow the response of the government officials. Keep in mind it was the police officer who did the shooting. Now for the scapegoats who must put their career necks on the block as if that will change anything. Rather the city descends into administrative chaos.
Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon and Police Officer Kim Potter resigned from their positions April 13, Mayor Mike Elliott announced at a press conference.
Tony Gruenig, commander of the department’s patrol division, was appointed acting chief of the department.
“As of this morning, we have received a resignation letter from officer Kim Potter and in addition to that, we have also received a letter of resignation from the police chief,” Elliott said.
The council fired former City Manger Curt Boganey April 12 and gave Elliott command powers over the police department. Fired for his remark regarding Due Process would be given to the police officer.
“I am in charge (of the police department) ultimately,” Elliott said. “Obviously the acting city manager has day-to-day responsibilities over the department, so that is the chain of command.” From Home Town Source
This should work out swell. Then we have Jesse Waters giving us some inconvenient facts.
I will conclude with this… more truth than fiction I do believe.
U.S.—Media organizations across the country announced today they are relieved to be covering the good kind of riots again, now that people are looting Targets for justice again instead of protesting their government.
“It was pretty rough there for a while,” said Rachel Maddow. “We had to cover the dark days of the violent insurrection. But now that people are stealing Nikes to protest racial injustice, we can return to feel-good reporting about the good riots that are happening.”
“It’s just the Spring of Love around here!” she added happily.
The best of the swamp today.
