Saint Daunte—the Rest of the Story

(Washington Times) When Daunte Demetrius Wright was pulled over Sunday by police in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, an expired regis-tration tag and a forbidden air freshener were the least of his problems.

The 20-year-old Wright had an open warrant for a Dec. 1, 2019, at-tack in which he allegedly tried to rob a female acquaintance by bran-dishing a handgun and threatening to shoot her, choking her twice and reaching into her bra to grab $820 as she screamed, according to court documents.

Mr. Wright faced being sent to jail for violating the conditions of his release, including a prohibition against firearms possession, which may explain why he resisted officers, jumping back into the vehicle as they tried to handcuff him, as shown on police body-camera video.

According to Hennepin County District Court documents, however, Mr. Wright had been charged with aggravated armed robbery, a felony that carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $35,000 fi-ne.

The charging document said that Mr. Wright, then 19, went to a party in Osseo with a friend, Emajay Maurice Driver, after which they slept on the floor at the apartment of a female friend of Mr. Driver’s from high school. She said she had only met Mr. Wright that night.

In the morning, she received $820 in cash from another person for rent. She heard Mr. Wright tell his friend that they should “hit some stains,” which she said meant robbing someone, but she thought he was joking.

As they left the apartment, however, Mr. Wright turned around, blocked the door to stop her from exiting, then “pulled a black handgun with silver trim out from either his right waistband or his right coat pocket and pointed it at VICTIM and demanded the rent money.”

“Give me the f—-ing money, I know you have it,” Mr. Wright said, according to the statement of probable cause dated Dec. 4, 2019.

He then “placed his hand around VICTIM’s neck and choked her while trying to pull the cash out from under her bra,” the statement said. “VICTIM was able to get loose from DEFENDANT WRIGHT and started to kneel down and scream.”

She said she told him to get out because “the cops are close,” but that Mr. Wright “told her that he would shoot her and said ‘Give me the money and we will leave,’” said the document, but then he “tried to choke VICTIM a second time and tried to take her money.”

[N.S.: Courageous lady.]

Shortly thereafter, he and Mr. Driver left the scene, driving off in a white Cadillac, after which she said she found the cash still in her bra. Mr. Driver was also charged.

Court documents also show that Mr. Wright had two misdemean-ors on his record: An October 2019 conviction for possession/sale of a “small amount of marijuana” and a February 2020 conviction for crim-inal disorderly conduct.

[N.S.: I’m sure he had committed many, many more crimes than that. Most of his victims must not have bothered with the police. The guy was a thug with a gun.]

Kate and Aubrey Wright, Mr. Wright’s parents, said on abc’s good morning America that their son called to tell them he had been pulled over for having an air freshener hanging from his rear-view mirror.

Then-Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon said Monday that Mr. Wright was pulled over because the vehicle’s tag was expired, after which officers discovered the air-freshener violation and outstanding warrant. The chief resigned Tuesday as protests broke out in the Min-neapolis suburb as well as rioting,

“He had a 2-year-old son that’s not going to be able to play basket-ball with him. He had sisters and brothers that he loved so much,” Katie Wright said in the Tuesday interview. “He just had his whole life taken away from him. We had our hearts pulled out of our chests. He was my baby.”

GRA: THIS is the thug who media is glorifying and making excuses for.

This is the first time I heard that in some places air fresheners were illegal! It is common to see many things hanging from rear-view mirrors--including dream catchers, Chinese knots, tassels from graduation mortar boards, and the classic fuzzy dice (why?). Has any of these thing ever caused an accident? In the hilarious movie Repo Man, the yard man at a repo lot points out a Christmas-tree-shaped air freshener on a rear-view mirror and says, "There'll be one in every car, you'll see!"Based on the movie, my sister gave me one before a cross-country trip and was disappointed that I would not use it. I just couldn't stand the perfume stink. But going by the dozens of bottles of stuff on a black college roommate's dresser, blacks apparently love stinky stuff. When the blacks decided they wanted all-black dorm rooms, they poured one of these concoctions on my bed. You could smell the stench all the way down the hall.

Usually they say the boy won't have his father to take him fishhin'.
