  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Daunte Wright’s mother: ‘My son should be burying me'” – below is their description.

    Daunte Wright, the young black man shot by police during a traffic stop in suburban Minneapolis, was remembered Thursday at an emotional funeral just two days after a former police officer was convicted in the death of George Floyd, amid a national reckoning on racism and policing.

    Hundreds of mourners wearing Covid-19 masks packed into Shiloh Temple International Ministries to remember Wright, a 20-year-old father of one who was shot by a police officer on April 11 in the small city of Brooklyn Center.

    “The roles should be completely reversed. My son should be burying me,” Daunte’s mum, Katie Wright, said before burying her face in her hands.

    Daunte’s father, Arbuey, also briefly took the microphone. When he passed it back, Katie Wright recalled her son becoming a father to a boy born prematurely: “He was so happy and so proud, and he said he couldn’t wait to make his son proud. Junior was the joy of his life. He lived for him every single day.”
