Justice for Daunte Wright

The Bail Project / Justice for Daunte Wright

April 12, 2021 – In response to the killing of Daunte Wright by a Minneapolis police officer, The Bail Project issued the following statement:

“As the world watches the trial over George Floyd’s killing unfold, yet another Black life has been taken senselessly at the hands of law enforcement when a Minneapolis police officer shot and killed Daunte Wright during a traffic stop last night. There are no words to convey the pain of systemic racism and the grief and sadness of watching this young man’s life cut short by police violence. Like George Floyd and so many others, Daunte Wright should be alive today. His death is a reminder that we cannot relent in our pursuit of racial justice and ending police impunity. We stand in solidarity with Daunte’s family and community, and join the call for an immediate, transparent investigation and accountability.
