Hundreds riot, dozens arrested in Minnesota over the death of Daunte Wright

Roughly 40 arrests were made at the Brooklyn Center Police Department Monday at the sight of a demonstration hundreds-strong protesting the death of Daunte Wright, a  20-year-old Black man fatally shot by police during a traffic stop, according to Fox News.

“Authorities fired tear gas, and flash-bang grenades into the crowd after warning them that they were in violation of curfew,” Fox added.

 “Some rioters retaliated by throwing smoke canisters back toward law enforcement, while others launched fireworks at the police lines, according to reports.” 

According to the report, officers were shelled “pretty significantly,” by the rioters throwing things from the crowd and several officers suffered minor injuries during the unrest. 

Police continued to ask the crowd to “Move back!” and the crowd changed in return “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” 

Law enforcement attempted to de-escalate the situation by talking with protesters but “unfortunately, those efforts weren’t successful … so … [we] stood and protected that building,” Minnesota State Patrol Col. Matt Langer said.

The dozens of arrests were due to violations including breaking the 7 PM curfew for Minneapolis put in place by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz as well as rioting. 

Waltz also deployed the National Guard in an effort to impose law and order, according to Fox News. As the day wore on, the riot deteriorated into looting that affected several businesses, including a nearby Dollar Tree and the police station. 

This disturbance is a stark reminder of what the city went through almost a year ago after the death of George Floyd. Those riots spread worldwide, which led to the deaths of 19 in just the first two weeks, and the injury of over 700 more.

    1. These rioters are being paid by the left to do this. They have admitted to being paid by the left to riot.

        1. COME OM GUYS!!!!

          THIS IS THE DEFINITION OF A PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATION

          HA! HA! HA!

    2. I AGREE WITH YOU. THEY ARE BEING PAID BY BLM AND THE LEFT. SOROS HAS A LOT OF MONEY TO THROW AWAY. THE LEFT SERIOUSLY NEEDS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ALL OF THE RIOTS. GOING BACK IN TIME TO THE 1960 AND THESE SPOILED ROTTEN KIDS FEEL RIGHT WITH DESTROYING THE WORLD AS THEIR GRANDPARENTS HELP AND CREATED

    3. I AGREE THE DEMOCRATE WANY TO BRING CUBA TO OVR COUNTRY I REMEMGER WENT THRU AND ARE STILL GOING THRU NOW.

    4. I agree 💯% on top of what did the 20 year old do in order to get shot I bet he did something that made the cops pull their weapons. Just like in Atlanta Georgia dude just got out of prison and was fighting the cops then grabs cops weapon yeah damn right he deserves what he got.

      1. He had a warrant for his arrest for robbing a woman with a gun and beat her up to steal 850 dollars. He was a f**king criminal.

    5. YES… I think it will take place BY THE PEOPLE and Not law enforcement… a CULTURAL WAR IS COMING SOON. When there is NO law and order, FASCISM forms rapidly… No courts, no lawyers, no bail … just hard core DISCIPLINE.

      1. Lock & load, simple term even the stupidest of morons can understand it. It’s well past the time for hard core action.

      1. The situation is terrible….the riotors are criminals…..but you are ignorant and your hateful spewing is both offensive and harmful.

        1. This GOP Republican agrees with you Angela!! Terry Bell is an IDIOT!!! Right is Right and Wrong is Wrong!!!

      2. I think they should put officers in upstairs windows,fully armed.Our officers don’t need this abuse.The government stirs up the discrimination talk and sit back and watch it play out.Anytime Obama is involved with government this crap starts.

    6. AMEN , and GOD BLESS you CARSRUS , that is exactly what they are and you named those ROTTEN TRAITORS , behind it.

  2. If you own a business in a Democrat controlled city, I’m very sorry for you…get out while you still can. And never vote Democrat again.

    1. Absolutely. Unfortunately many of these businesses have been in these cities, raised families, etc. This is home. The solution is burry the scum, terrorist, Antifa, and whatever other names they go by. People should not have to run from their homes and businesses. However, by now they should have learned a valuable lesson; Never, ever, vote for or elected a Democrat. They continue to prove they only want power and they don’t care who gets hurt.

  3. Let the trash dump burn.. they are one that will have to live there. All the lock downs there i guess got to have some kind of entertainment… don’t bother with arrest as they will just let them go…no charges will stick as they wouldn’t want to hurt their feelings

        1. Yes, where are the guns, they want to fight , then give them a fight, and grave a few, and watch it stop.

        2. In the hands of Criminals because of the bleeding heart liberals. Plan B – whip the criminals and take their guns.

  4. And we continue to “reward” this behavior by these rioters AND the city officials by giving them money to repair and rebuild.

    NO! Not just no but HELL NO! It’s time for Americans to stand up both to the rioters AND these elected officials. IF we don’t than the America we have all known and loved will be no more. . .

    1. You are so very correct that I cannot fathom why EVERYONE WHO CAN THINK knows you are right. I’m on your side with this idiocy.

    2. YOU WILL BE ARRESTED IF YOU DO. THE RIOTERS ARE HELPING THE MINN COMMIES KEEP CONTROL.
      YOU WILL BE LOADED ONTO A TRUCK AND SENT TO A WORK CAMP, CAUSE YOU ARE THE ROOT CAUSE
      OF THEIR PROBLEMS.

      1. Yet more proof that America is revealed to be mystery whore of Babylon the great is the “statue of liberty” written in Revelations in the Holy Bible

  5. the state of Minn should declare marial law. turn the national guard loose to police the streets. the protesters should be dealt with no remorse. use rubber bullets and when they hit the ground , put in semis box vans and take them to a fence in compound feed them MRE’S fine them $1000.00 and make them clean up the mess that they made. it won’t take long to correct there actions.

    1. Richard, you have made the most sense of anyone here. Time to hold these people accountable for their actions.

    2. Yes richard r correct..how can we as American citzens or the states of those rioters tearing and burning cities get this to happen.

    3. Why would they do all that ? The communists of minn are getting everything they want. The white people there
      are nothing more than low brow drunks who won’t mind being burnt out of their neighborhoods cuz the govt will
      will help them. LOL – SHAME MINN – ENJOY WHAT YOU HAVE BROUGHT ON YOURSELVES !

  6. inforce the cerfew law arrest all that disobey the law protest are one thing riots are unlawful put these criminals in jail they are to stupid to understand any thing else

    1. Yea and put them in one of the many building they attempted to demolish. No beds/cots, nothing and surround the building with the guard with orders to shoot anyone trying to escape. They are animals let them live like animals.

  7. I wonder if the demonrats still consider this peaceful protesting,I say the cops are being too patient with these animals and should take more drastic measures by SHOOTING everyone of them ,then let’s see if these POS still want to continue

  8. More people are killed and injured by by these thugs than by the criminals are by police. It’s just a political movement they don’t care about the Black communities, if they did all that money they are given would be used to clean up the neighborhoods and help the businesses they destroy. Look at what the co-founder of BLM is doing with the money donated to their cause, buying million dollar homes in white neighborhoods, if they love their own race they would buy a home in predominantly black communities and not for millions of dollars.

  9. hopefully no tolerance for rioters this time

    no more restraint, warn em and if they don’t comply arrest them…. if they loot or throw things, shoot them

    1. agree with you but it is time to break out the Apache gunships and take care of this crap once and for all.

  10. The animals are loose again. It’s b.s. that these worthless waste of space believe they have the right to destroy their communities because they’re upset.

  11. I have commented so much to all these News Articles…..and do Love …..All You Good, True, and Faithful Americans and People, who making really good comments….Even though they are harsh like mine have been…..I am so sick and tired of saying things – Due To Nothing Is Ever Done Correctly….WELL, what is correct anymore……I like what CARSRUS said…..Just Time to PUT THEM DOWN.!!! The sooner this country realizes that by putting them down – It will make others think twice….to be in the Rioting and Looting Groups. My Vote is to Just Get Rid of Them…..and the numbers will diminish.!!!!

  12. Stop using rubber bullets and use lead. China Joe Xiden has said it’s OK to shoot them in the leg. Disable a few and the rest will turn tail.

    1. shoot them in the balls that will take the wind out of their sails and they won’t need abortions any more.

  13. This is nothing but criminal activities, not protesting. These actions might gain them some concessions, but as a part of the overall picture, it is driving a wedge between blacks and other races. Nothing but sheer stupidity on the protesters and local governments. Hard to believe that this happening in America.

  14. it really is time to stop this nonsense and treat these morons for what they really are: thugs, thieves and internal or domestic terrorist. Criminals that the corrupt Democrats are unwilling to stop, because it fits there agenda for the disruption of democracy to keep them in control. The citizens of the community being affected must take control and bury this internal trash, once and forever, the local and federal government will do nothing to protect or help… time for vigilante justice!

  15. Why are these so called “activists” not on a terrorist list ??? Yes, the policewoman should not have shot but instead taser the individual. It’s sad that a death was a result of this action !!! Police are there to protect society, but, society shouldn’t blame all police officers – they’re there for you !!! By the way – obey police officers and these actions wouldn’t happen !!! Rioting and looting only show what types of people are concerned – they don’t care – they just want their way !!! I know a lot of people of color and they don’t agree with these types of actions – check out the facts and see the difference of deaths – by race – for yourself – they’re posted if you take the time to look. The destruction of America is in the hands of the press – THEY DON’T TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT IT AT ALL – IT DOESN’T MEET THEIR AGENDA !!!

  16. That’s how the Left instills fear into American citizens so their Marxist arm to the Democratic Party can keep the citizens scared. That makes it easier for the Democratic politicians to control us.

    1. THE DEMOCRAPS are trolling for marshal law so the final takover can start.OUTLAW GUNS IN THE CIVILIAN POPULATION, that is what the dems are out to do. all they are going to receive is hot lead. this is not about the blacks or the latinos it is all about total communist control JUST LIKE COMMUNIST CHINA,

  17. Richard has it right- if anybody in Minnesota really cares! I guess the citizens there will have to reach the bottom of the crap-hole before they get serious about taking out the commiecrats.

  18. I BLAME BIDEN FOR ALL THE UNREST. HE IS NOT A VERY AFFECTIVE PRESIDENT. HE ALSO SEEMS TO BE SUFFERING FROM SOME SORT OF A
    COGNITIVE DISORDER. HE NEEDS TO STEP DOWN. HOWEVER, IT COULD GET
    WORSE W/HARRIS IN OFFICE IF IT IS TRUE THAT SHE COMES FROM A COMMUNIST BACKGROUND

  19. Time to stop playing with BLM & Antifi. If they are peaceably protesting fine but if they loot , burn etc. warn them then shoot to kill

    1. I couldn’t agree more. If law enforcement cannot gain control, you are going to see more store Owners taking up arms to protect they’re property. We are not far from that.

  20. You know it really doesn’t matter what they decide in most cases. George Floyd is a national hero they already paid his wife who he left years ago how many millions, so he must be innocent?? , this other guy In Minnesota, broke the law, has open warrants for not appearing for prior offenses, was resisting arrest, fighting with the police, then put his car in gear in order to flee the police, let’s see how many millions they pay his family, so per say he also is an innocent victim, just like Michael Brown , Eric Gardner –
    All of their families were paid well for thugs, criminals etc.,etc., . Your right no one needs to die in matters of this type, but the so called victims made their choice feeling they don’t have to follow the rules of society and common sense. Right away the police officers are tecoguilty until proven innocent. How about the Air Force vet killed on 06 January by capital police in Washington DC, the officer was not arrested or relieved of duty , the young lady to my knowledge had no prior police record, was not armed no threat to police except for her presence in a building of the people that we as citizens are entitled to enter , so that officer is free nothing or no one to answer to or for meanwhile my sister veteran is dead, her name run through the mud as a traitor and no millions of dollars for her survivors . It’s hell in America now to be crime, arrest free a worker who pays their way , so crime does pay in America under today’s leadership in Washington.

  21. So interesting how BLM and Antifa go to cities that % of the race are black and destroy, riots, and kill innocent people’s businesses and lives and then make it look like racism where they are the racist killing and destroying their own people’s livelihood. If they cared about these people then why are they doing it and yet getting rich over donations and “gofundme”. Sad.

  22. I agree with you all. What needs to happen is that the “other side” needs to come out armed and ready to protect their business and their town. Oh, for sure, if someone would be shot by someone trying to protect their property, they would be the one picked up and prosecuted and put into jail for 15 or so years. Justice? What does that mean? Who can even say anymore. God bless all of you living through this. It is disgraceful.

  23. the united states is under attack from within. the democrat/communist party has corrupted the election with false and mis-leading stories about police brutality and agressive out of control cops preying on black and latinos. aided by the corrupt biased media. the only way that we are going to remedy this is to remove the corruption from congress and the president’s office. Joe bide is NOT IN CONTROL .neither he nor his running mate harris are qualified for the job.THEY WERE INSTALLED BY ILLEGAL VOTING MACHINES,NON-CITIZEN VOTERS AND MULTIPLE DEAD AND UN-REGISTERED VOTING.this was a concerted effort by the GOOD OLD BOYS CLUB of politicians that have decided that they should be calling the shots ,not the voting public..both democrat and republicans are guilty of this TRAVISTY..

  24. Blm (Burn,Loot and Murder) doesn’t’ give a crap about George Floyd or Dante Wright.
    This is just an excuse to riot and loot so they can get Free stuff like they have all their pathetic lives.

  25. it time for the rule of law ,these thugs they call protesters should all be shot ! blm and antifa ,should be gone from the streets of this country !democraps give them the rights to destroy and kill ,wheres the rights of the normal people of this country ,im tired of these black thugs getting honored for getting killed ! why do thugs get more media coverage than the normal people getting killed by these thugs! just because their black ! bs

  26. Well what else do you expect, defund the police, release the ones who are arrested so that they can go back out a destroy more property, as far as the shooting I understand that Wright had a warrant out for his arrest already but of course that doesn’t matter to the rioters all they want is an excuse to riot

  27. Oh, Terry Bell — YOU could have been born with black skin. It’s what is INSIDE that counts.
    I’m not impressed with “what’s inside” YOU.

  28. Shouldn’t these rioting people be hunted down, arrested and jailed more severely than the protesters on the Capital Hill???

  29. The amount of treasonous activities going on in this country from teh very top to the lowest is beyond comprehension and the government ignores it….especially the DOJ and SCOTUS.

  30. Soros started BLM which got $93 million in donations last year. Not one cent went to a ‘victim’, a family, or a black-owned business that was destroyed.

  31. BLM doesn’t care about black lives. They only care about green money. It is a Marxist terror group and should be designated as such.

  32. They’re NOTHING but thug’s. Never a protest after a weekend in Chicago, when black’s kill other black’s. Or when a Black person kills white people, which just happened this last week, I guess because the killer a Black NFL player who killed himself after killing 2 adults and 2 CHILDREN. Nothing much in the MSM about this tragedy. Bunch of Hypocrites.
