#DaunteWright, a 20 year old father of a two year old, was killed by police in Brooklyn Center (suburb in minneapolis MN) for having an air freshener in his car. he was unarmed and his body was left on the ground for SIX hours.
i will add that he was killed by the same system that killed george floyd. enough is fucking enough.

i really didn’t expect this to blow up, but i am happy to see its been a vauable resource for many. if any more credible and valuable sources can be added, dm me w them and ill look them over!
if the family comes out w a donation fund and a petition, i will add it ASAP. until then, please be wary of other funds and petitions. DO NOT DONATE TO http://CHANGE.ORG  !!! the money doesn’t benefit anyone except change itself and their petitions.
any petitions that are based in the US (whitehouse . gov petitions to be more specific) should only be signed by US CITIZENS. if you live abroad, just rt them. one invalid signature could void the whole petition.
