    • Funeral for Daunte Wright, 20, shot by a white police officer in a Minneapolis suburb on April 11 after a routine traffic stop, was attended by a number of high-profile civil rights activists as well as family and friends
    • Katie Wright broke down in tears as she paid tribute to her son, noting how he had died before his time
    • 'My son should be burying me,' she told mourners as Aubrey Wright comforted his wife at the pulpit
    • The service was held a Shiloh Temple International Ministries, a historically black church in Minneapolis
    • Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Governor Tim Walz and Sen. Amy Klobuchar also made remarks at the funeral 
    • The Reverend Al Sharpton delivered the eulogy, just as he did at George Floyd's funeral last year

  • He called Wright, 'The prince of Brooklyn Center,' in a reference to the artist Prince who lived in the area
  • Klobuchar said the fight for racial justice was bigger than the guilty murder conviction for Derek Chauvin
  • 'We cannot confuse accountability for justice,' she said. 'True justice is not done as long as having expired tags mean losing your life during a traffic stop.' 
  • More than a dozen men from the Minnesota Freedom Fighters, many with assault-style rifles, sidearms and wearing body armor, provided security for the service  
  • Police video of the shooting shows multiple officers attempting to arrest Wright for an outstanding warrant and an ensuing scuffle
  • Video then shows Kimberly Potter threatening to stun Wright with her Taser before firing her handgun
  • Potter, who also resigned after the incident, has been charged with second-degree manslaughter and posted $100,000 bond after her arrest

    Duante Wright, a black man who was fatally shot by a police officer during a routine traffic stop, has been laid to rest at Lakewood Cemetery, in Minneapolis, Minnesota following an emotional funeral on Thursday at which his mother spoke of her son's 'million dollar smile'.

    Wright, 20, was shot dead by a white police officer in a Minneapolis suburb two weeks ago after she grabbed her gun instead of a Taser.

    Duante's mother, Katie, who stood alongside her husband, Aubrey, bravely spoke to hundreds of mourners from the podium before the grief became too much for her to continue.

    'I never imagined I'd be standing here,' Wright said. 'My son had a smile that was worth a million dollars. He was loved by so many,' Wright said. 'When he walked in the room, he lit up the room.'

    'My son should be burying me,' she said as husband, Aubrey, did his best to comfort her at the pulpit. 

    Later the Reverend Al Sharpton described Wright, not 'just as some kid with an air freshener,' but a 'prince' whose life ended too soon at the hands of police.

Condolences to the bereaved families, RIP/SIP  Daunte Wright...

The Bible says," the wages of sin is death". It is sad but this kid was outright criminal. He had a warrant for the assault on a woman, posting pictures with guns, he live a life of crime. We need to cry for the youth that is lost in criminal activity
