Protesters, police clash for third straight night in wake of Daunte Wright's death
April 14, 2021
Protesters clashed with law enforcement for a third straight night Tuesday outside the Brooklyn Center Police Department, with activists demanding an independent investigation into Daunte Wright's death.
Activist and attorney Nekima Levy Armstrong told the crowd that she recently spoke to Gov. Tim Walz about introducing nine bills to the Legislature.
"Ending qualified immunity is an example ... to stop killing people on the taxpayer's dollars. ... We want an independent body to investigate police killings and not the BCA," she said, referring to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
