Mr. Wright was fired over a “air freshener” in his vehicle, according to left-wing sources, although other accounts say he had a warrant and was resisting arrest.

At this point, the specifics are sketchy at best, and little appears to have been verified.
Last night, the shooting triggered more protests in war-torn Minneapolis, which is still waiting for the verdict in the high-profile George Floyd trial.
Angry demonstrators set fire to stores and robbed businesses all over the city; many of the businesses damaged, such as Walmart, support “Black Lives Matter.”

Nothing is known about the young man who was killed at the time; according to his family and friends, he was a decent kid who was about to graduate.
However, there are recently discovered videos of Mr. Wright flaunting weapons in online videos.
To be fair, we see a lot of people proudly showing off their guns on a daily basis, but these videos tend to include alcohol, drugs, and firearms, which is a bad combination. Mr. Wright is also aiming the gun directly at the camera, which some may interpret as “threatening.”
