    The Constitutional Conservatives ^ | April 20, 2021 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Fresh from the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump for the alleged incitement of the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol, veteran inciter of riots and criminal confrontation, Rep. Maxine Waters of the People’s Republic of California travels to Minnesota where, hypocritically under police escort, she urges rioters to keep on rioting. After all, maybe VP Kamala Harris can set up another fund to bail them out should they be briefly arrested. She is the leaders of the party of riots. As reports: As Katie (Pavlich) reported earlier today, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), a sitting member of Congress, took...

    In another example of the Democrats’ support of political violence, Representative Maxine Waters (D-California) incited a violent mob in Minnesota yesterday to not to accept anything other than a guilty verdict for Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer on trial for the death of Daunte Wright. Just one day after the week long protests descended into violence, Rep. Waters’ urged protesters at Brooklyn Center to “to get more confrontational.”‘ “I am not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long,” Waters said. “We’re looking for a guilty verdict,'” she added in regards to the Derek Chauvin trial....

    Protesters have gathered Friday outside the Brooklyn Center Police Department for a sixth night after the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright. Former Brooklyn Center police officer Kimberly Potter fatally shot Wright during a traffic stop Sunday afternoon. Potter has since resigned from the department and has been charged with second-degree manslaughter. 6:00 p.m. A KSTP reporter at the scene estimates 200 people are already outside the Brooklyn Center Police Department. The protesters are up against the fence and chanting, but it has been a peaceful assembly so far. Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott announced this evening that he will change...

    America's foremost race-baiter latches onto latest opportunity to distract black voters from the unmitigated carnage Democrats have foisted on generations of urban Americans Barack Obama claimed on Twitter that his “heart is heavy” over the fatal Minneapolis police shooting of Daunte Wright, an unarmed 20-year-old black man who resisted arrest. I’m calling BS on that claim. America’s foremost race-baiter I believe Obama is thrilled every time an unarmed black person is killed by police. Why? Because each such killing is a fresh opportunity for him to advance the obscene narrative that America’s law enforcement community is replete with racist cops...

Brian Peters, the head of the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association, told WCCO-AM radio: 'If I were the mayor, I would not allow the political activists [to] run the show.' Peters claims Mike Elliott - mayor since January 2019 - is in 'way over his head'.

    Things are heating up in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota again tonight, the third night after the police shooting of Daunte Wright.CNN is there with Miguel Marquez and his crew. The BLM ‘protesters’ just attacked one of the crew members. They threw a water bottle, hitting the older gentleman square in the head and you can see him go down, visibly a little stunned. They then laugh at him and mock him, with a couple trying to see if he’s okay. He gets up and seems to want to take them on, but is held back.Protesters throw a water bottle at a...

    BLM mobs rioted for the third consecutive night in honor of Daunte Wright. Police and protesters faced off again in Brooklyn Center after nightfall, with hundreds of protesters gathered in the city’s heavily guarded police headquarters, now ringed by concrete barriers and a tall metal fence, and where police in riot gear and National Guard soldiers stood watch. “Murderapolis” was scrawled with black spray paint on a concrete barrier. “Whose street? Our street!” the crowd chanted under a light snowfall. Driver’s security is also a concern during these riots. During these ongoing nationwide riots, carriers and drivers are advised to...

    Reform of the police is no longer enough, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Tuesday, as she joined fellow 'squad' member Rashida Tlaib in calling for the police to be abolished. The New York congresswoman responded on Tuesday to the killing of another black man, Daunte Wright, 20, in a Minneapolis suburb on Sunday. He was killed by a white policewoman, Kimberly Potter, who shot him in the chest at a traffic stop in what Brooklyn Center police chief said was an accident, when she meant to reach for her Taser. 'Daunte Wright's killing was not a random, disconnected 'accident' - it...

    CNN ^ | Tue April 13, 2021, 6:25 AM ET | Faith Karimi
    Moments before police fatally shot Daunte Wright during a traffic stop Sunday in a Minneapolis suburb, he called his mother and told her he'd been pulled over for hanging air fresheners from his rearview mirror. It's not clear how much of a role the air fresheners played in the traffic stop. Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon told reporters Monday that Wright was originally pulled over for an expired tag and that when officers approached his car, they saw an item hanging from the rearview mirror. But Minnesota is one of at least several states with laws that prohibit hanging...

    The National Guard has been called out to control rioting in the wake of a police shooting in the northern Minneapolis lower-middle-class suburb of Brooklyn Center (whose Caucasian population is 44.5% according to Census Bureau estimates). Rioters behaved with a hair trigger response, with at least one shot fired into the police station, and looting reported locally and many miles distant, on Lake Street in Minneapolis, which received the brunt of the riot, looting, and arson damage following the drug overdose death of George Floyd while in police custody.KARE TV 11 reports:A curfew is in place for the city of...

    Charlotte, NC — Look no further if you were in search of more proof that Democrats see black Americans as political pawns to be used up and cast aside. The only difference now is it’s not an election year. If you’re looking for an example of this stupidity, look no further than Joe Biden’s idiotic call for ‘protests’ over yesterday’s shooting of Duante Wright. The shooting is being described as an accidental discharge. Also, race played no factor in this matter, but rather outstanding warrants and fleeing the scene of a traffic stop did. Sadly, there are insane people living...
