U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar is calling for legislative change to ensure “true justice” following the police killings of Daunte Wright, George Floyd and more.
Speaking at Wright’s funeral Thursday, Klobuchar, of Minnesota, said “true justice is not done as long as Black Americans are killed by law enforcement at more than twice the rate of white Americans.”
Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, was fatally shot April 11 by a white police officer during a traffic stop in a Minneapolis suburb.
U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar and Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz also read proclamations decrying Wright’s death.
