The leader of the largest police union in Minnesota placed blame for the death of Daunte Wright at the feet of the deceased 20-year-old himself.
“This is going to be an unpopular statement,” Brian Peters, executive director of the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association, said on talk radio Wednesday. “Daunte Wright, if he would have just complied. He was told he was under arrest. They were arresting him on a warrant for weapons. He set off a chain of events that unfortunately led to his death.”
