Reporters seen scolding police chief for using the word ‘riot’ to describe violence that broke out in Minneapolis suburb

It must be awful to be a police officer in America right now. These brave men and women put their lives on the line to protect us, only to be assaulted, mocked, vilified, and character assassinated by the Left. Rational Americans must support law enforcement officers whole heartedly.

Reporters seen scolding police chief for using the word ‘riot’ to describe violence that broke out in Minneapolis suburb

By Washington Examiner, April 13, 2021

Reporters were seen telling a Minnesota police chief not to use the term “riot” when he explained how officers responded to violence near Minneapolis during a press conference.

“Just so everybody is clear, I was front and center at the protest, at the riot,” Police Chief Tim Gannon of Brooklyn Center told reporters Monday when questioned why his department issued a dispersal order Sunday evening after the police shooting of a black man.

“There was no riot,” one reporter responded.

“Don’t do that,” another person is heard saying, as others joined in that there wasn’t a riot.

“There was … the officers that were putting themselves in harm’s way were being pelted with frozen cans of pop, they were being pelted with concrete blocks,” Gannon continued.

“Yes, we had our helmets on. We had other protection gear. But an officer was injured, hit in the head with a brick … he was transported to the hospital. So, we had to make decisions, we had to disperse the crowd because we can’t allow our officers to be harmed.”

Wright, 20, died in the Minneapolis suburb during a traffic stop after police tried to arrest him, following them discovering he had an outstanding warrant. Wright was seen struggling with police and attempting to flee in his car before being shot.

Gannon said Wright’s death was an accident, as the officer who shot him meant to fire her Taser but instead used her handgun.
