Duante Wright was pulled over driving a car with expired tags and had an outstanding warrant for his arrest related to aggravated armed robbery.

One council member said she voted to fire the city manager not because he deserved it, but because of what the mob would do to the councilwoman had she not voted to fire the manager. …
The police officer on Capitol Hill who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt will not be prosecuted. Babbitt was … sank into QAnon conspiracies and decided to go to Washington for the election protest on January 6, 2021. … Some Trump supporters are outraged the officer who shot her will not be prosecuted. He should not be. He was defending members of Congress fleeing a mob smashing windows trying to storm Congress to stop an official act of government. …
Kim Potter should be prosecuted for her negligence, but Wright would be alive but for his actions too. Ashli Babbitt should be alive as well. In our tribal times, we have broken our bond with truth. We have an obligation to the truth that must outweigh our obligations to our tribes.
