The capitol police officer who shot Ashley Babbitt in the neck and killed her on Jan. 6 in the Pelosi assault of the Capitol who presented no threat and then ran away got a free pass by the Liberals led by Pelosi. There was no investigation, no charges, and his name was never made public.
Kim Potter, a Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Duante Wright by accident when he was resisting arrest and trying to flee, was just convicted by a jury on Manslaughter 1 (15 Years) and Manslaughter 2 (10 years) sends a message to all police officers from the “Defund the Police movement” – “You make a mistake, and we are coming after you”. The jury was hung for a while and I think with Christmas only two days away, some jurors may have caved under the pressure.
The officers who stopped Daunte Wright, after stopping him, realized that he was a convicted felon with outstanding warrants, but the jury was not allowed to know that Daunte was indeed a dangerous person. If it wasn’t for the liberal prosecutors, Daunte should have been in jail, and Kim Potter would have never killed him because there would have been no traffic stop if Daunte was in jail.
Here is what one of Daunte’s victims has to say about his character.
My name is Jennifer LeMay. I am the mother of Caleb Livingston. On May 14, 2019, my 16-year-old son, Caleb Livingston, was shot in the head while pumping gas at a service station in North Minneapolis, Minnesota and that single shot has changed Caleb’s and our family’s lives forever.
The person who shot my son was Daunte Wright, whose death at the hands of a Brooklyn Center, Minnesota police officer on April 11, 2021 became international news. Daunte and Caleb had known each other as they grew up, and Caleb’s first sleepover was at the home of Daunte. However, long before the date of the May 14 shooting, both got into a fight, and Caleb prevailed in the presence of others. This is believed to be the primary motive as to why Daunte shot Caleb. Additionally, Daunte was a member of a gang, and he may have sought to obtain street credibility for the shooting.
Caleb’s “Unresponsive Wakefulness Syndrome”
Caleb’s health status is that he needs assistance with every single activity of daily living, and he is not able to speak. Caleb’s diagnosis is a neurological syndrome known as “Unresponsive Wakefulness Syndrome.” This is defined as when a person is in a wakeful state without signs of awareness. The bullet that entered Caleb’s head and went into his brain is still lodged there and cannot be safely removed.
Caleb is a living vegetable as a result of a shooting by Daunte Wright only two years prior. Daunte also has other gun violations, and the jury was not allowed to know any of this information. If Daunte had been prosecuted in a red state, he would still be behind bars.
Attorney Ben Crump (from George Floyd) is representing the Wright family and publicly they are making Daunte a hero, have opened a “Go Fund Me Account” that is over $1,000,000 when I checked it a couple minutes ago, and then Crumb will file a civil action against the City of Minneapolis using his guilty verdict of Kim Potter as proof of his claim. Crumb had protestors all outside the courthouse that were ready to stage a “peaceful protest” with a not guilty verdict, and this could have had some influence on the jury.
Crump has been described by FOX News as the most dangerous persons in America as he takes the death of any colored person by a police officer and goes after the money by making the dead person a hero and the police officer a criminal.
This shooting should have never happened. Duante Wright belonged in jail, and I have yet to hear a reason why he belonged on the streets after shooting Caleb in the head. Kim Potter would have never had this traffic stop and Ben Crump will not have picked up another ten million in legal fees if the liberals had kept Daunte in jail where he belonged. If Kim Potter had pulled her gun and said stop or I will shoot, it would have been a justified shooting that saved her partner’s life. Daunte was resisting arrest and was about ready to hit the accelerator to take off with Kim’s partner hanging in the passenger window. Yet, because Kim screamed Taser, Taser and had pulled her Glock and shot him, she will spend 15 years in jail, when that is where Duante should have been.
This is a message to all police officers that if you make a mistake in a chaotic arrest, you will become the criminal and be sent to jail. This jury has set law enforcement back twenty years. Most of the legal analysts on TV say she should have never been charged and that the defense attorneys did a terrible job in their closing arguments. Hopefully she will get better attorneys for the appeal process. Kim’s attorneys may have been public defenders by the way they argued the case.
