Calls for US police reform at fresh protest over
Daunte Wright killing




High-ranking Congress member Maxine ทดลองเล่นสล็อต xo Waters called for an
overhaul of policing in the US as she joined the seventh consecutive night of protests
in a Minneapolis suburb over the death of Daunte Wright, a young black man shot
dead by a white policewoman.

The 20-year-old was killed during what should have been a routine traffic stop,
sparking anger and fresh protests against police brutality and racial injustice.

"Policing has got to be changed," Waters, chair of the House Committee on Financial
Services, said on Saturday (Apr 17) shortly before the 11pm curfew.

"We've got to reimagine how we can deal with the problems of our society, that
young people and people of color in particular getting killed by police that we pay to
protect and serve us."

Waters, a Democrat from California, was speaking to a crowd of nearly 300 people
outside the Brooklyn Center Police Station.

Protesters have gathered every night since the killing of Wright in a neighbourhood
about 16km north of Minneapolis.

Unlike Friday night, when police in riot gear moved to disperse what was declared
an unlawful demonstration and arrested at least 100 people - including some
journalists - Saturday's gathering appeared to remain peaceful.

Protesters stood alongside the chain-link fence around the police station, chanting
"Shut It Down" and waving "Black Lives Matter" flags, but did not appear to try to
breach the barrier.

"I'm here because we are tired of police brutality. We are tired of seeing unarmed
black men lose their lives for no reason," protester Joel Reeves told AFP.

Wright was shot dead in his car after police veteran Kim Potter mistook her Taser
for a gun during a traffic stop caught on bodycam.
