Hundreds of Black Lives Matter supporters smashed police cars, looted businesses, and vandalized a police station in Minneapolis after police officers shot and killed a man during a traffic stop after the man allegedly ran from police after they pulled him over. The man had an outstanding warrant at the time.
Black Lives Matter marchers descended upon the Brooklyn Center Police Department building where the rioters threw rocks and other objects at law enforcement officials in response to the death of Daunte Wright, 20, while over twenty local businesses were broken into and looted. A police officer was transported to a hospital with injuries obtained during the riot last night.

“Officers repeatedly ordered the crowd of about 500 to disperse as protesters chanted Wright’s name and climbed atop the police headquarters sign, by then covered in graffiti. Police used tear gas, flashbangs, and rubber bullets on the crowd,” The Star Tribune reported. “National Guard troops arrived just before midnight as looters targeted the Brooklyn Center Walmart and nearby shopping mall. Several businesses around the Walmart were completely destroyed, including Foot Locker, T Mobile, and a New York men’s clothing store.”

The National Guard was deployed in Minneapolis in the early morning hours Monday. The Brooklyn Center Police Department released a statement that officers pulled over the suspect during a traffic stop on Sunday afternoon.
The statement said in part:
Officers determined that the driver of the vehicle had an outstanding warrant. At one point as officers were attempting to take the driver into custody, the driver re-entered the vehicle. One officer discharged their firearm, striking the driver. The vehicle traveled several blocks before striking another vehicle. Officers in pursuit and responding medical personnel attempted life-saving measures, but the person died at the scene.
“Daunte, don’t run.” - The suspect's mother stated while on the phone with him during the incident.
A Facebook account that belonged to the suspect has been found. The account is filled with posts joking about attacking police officers, running from the police, and degrading statements about women.

The issues that will be raised from the fallout of this incident will be brought to light soon. There is no more “accountability” in America anymore. Hundreds of “peaceful” Black Lives Matter supporters riot and destroy local businesses AGAIN when a criminal resists arrests and ends up dead before any more information has been released. These “rioters” are nothing more than thugs hiding behind the face masks who only participate in the destruction of their own community for selfish reasons.
