Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Black man shot by a police officer in a Minneapolis suburb Sunday afternoon, had an open warrant for his arrest related to an aggravated armed robbery attempt (of a woman) when he was killed, according to court records.
So what it was a WARRANT he did a crime in the past, send him a summons in the mail or something you don't need to shoot him. So what if floyd passed a fake 20. he was obviously too fucked up to tell it was fake.
The police need to calm down and stop wasting resources during a pandemic time on such petty crimes. Most of these people don't go to jail anyway because of covid and overcrowding.
Society is moving in a different direction. Why spend money on prisons when you can just put an ankle monitor and have a cop check on them? Most people would rather do that and could get a job and not have to be taken away from society.
They can be productive citizens and have corrective punishment without being locked in a taxpayer funded housing project. They should have to pay for their own food instead of the government feeding them.
The idea of arresting someone for a crime and sending them to a prison is so fucking antiquated and ineffective. Is it really the best we can do?
