Global News published this video item, entitled “Daunte Wright funeral: Hundreds gather in Minneapolis in remembrance | FULL” – below is their description.
Hundreds of mourners filed into a Minneapolis church on Thursday for the funeral of Daunte Wright, a Black man whose shooting by a white police after a routine traffic stop has raised fresh concerns over the way police officers treat people of colour.
Wright, 20, who was shot by a police officer in a Minneapolis suburb on April 11, was laid to rest two days after a Minneapolis jury found a white police officer guilty of murdering George Floyd last May – a killing that triggered worldwide protests for racial justice.
Both Rev. Al Sharpton and attorney Ben Crump expressed hope that Wright’s case would get “justice” in the court of law, while his family shared emotional memories. “My son had a smile that was worth a million dollars,” said Katie Wright, Daunte’s mother.
Among the attendees were Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, U.S. Senator from Minnesota Amy Klobuchar and U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar. George Floyd’s family was also in attendance.
