Madison, WI – Yesterday evening, a Brooklyn Center Police Officer shot and killed 20 year old Daunte Wright during a traffic stop. On this shooting, Representative Stubbs released the following statement:

“Once again our nation mourns the death of another Black man who was killed by law enforcment officers. It is sickening that yet another family is forever impacted because of our broken criminal justice system. Violence like this does permanent damage to our communities, and needs to be addressed.”

“While the details of this shooting are still developing, we do know that yet another mother is without her son today. Yet another family has to ask why their loved one was killed by an officer sworn to protect and serve. Yet another community is shaken to its core by the violent actions of a law enforcment officer.”

“Enough is enough. Violent police action continues to disproportionately impact communities of color. Black families should not have to fear losing their loved ones to an act of police violence. Our communities deserve real reform and real action to end police brutality at all levels.  Any officer who uses deadly force needs to be held accountable for their actions.”

“My prayers go out to the friends’ family and loved ones of Mr. Wright. I pray that you find justice, and I pray that our leaders will do what is right to ensure not one more family has to endure what you are going through at this moment.”
