KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The call for justice in the death of Daunte Wright continues to gain momentum. The Black man was killed during a traffic stop one week ago in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. 500 miles away in Kansas City, Missouri a vigil for Wright and other victims of police brutality was held.

LAME.

Don't co-opt the grief of others. Mind your business and hope to avoid tragedy if you can. Teach your kids to do the same and you might get lucky and life a reasonably happy life. Protests are for suckers.

How not to get shot by police.

1. Obey the law-
2. Listen to the police instructions
3. Dont resist arrest and don't leave the scene
4. If you want to be treated respectfully, act the way you want to be treated

Simple things you should learn in kindergarten - black white brown yellow isn't the issue folks

Just take into account that most of these "activists" are from either KCMO's east side where people murder each other with reckless abandon, or from the suburbs where residents cooperate with the police and help keep their neighborhoods safe and secure.
It's beyond belief that in KCMO, with almost half as many homicides as New York City year after year, which has a population 17 times the size, people from the very neighborhoods that that carnage is taking place is so clueless that they march around and protest events taking place in other parts of the country.
The ultimate example of blaming others for their dysfunction and problems.
Sad.

624 is spot on. 32/46 homicide victims in KCMO this year so far are black but these vigils and “activists” never mention their names or any of the local violence that happens daily in their own neighborhoods. That Alonzo and pat Clark guy seems to be the only one talking about it but they are silenced by the local media

Teach your kids "Comply, don't DIE!!!! It's that simple.
Black, white yellow, tan, purple, blue, WTF ever, it doesn't matter.

99.9% of the little shitheads that catch cop lead, are trying to run or assaulting cops with anything under the sun they can get their hands on...
Comply, don't DIE!!! It's that simple.
If you aren't doing anything wrong why are you fighting or running from the cops? It only makes you look guilty when you pull shit like that.

^^and yet there are MANY, MANY, instances of folks complying with the police and being shot dead. Weird.
