- Trevor Noah is not happy with the American police after the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright
- Wright was shot and killed by a police officer after an alleged tragic violation and citizens are protesting
- Trevor believes that his death could have been prevented if the police weren't so quick to draw their weapons
South African comedian Trevor Noah is upset with the justice system in the US after the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright. Daunte was shot and killed by the police in Minnesota after an alleged traffic violation.
The young man was then shot by a police officer as he struggled to get back into his car. The officer says that they meant to tase him but ended up accidentally shooting him.
Trevor Noah has come out guns blazing and is not impressed with the authorities in America.
"You have to be f****** kidding me. A man was shot at a traffic stop because the police officer mixed up their gun and their taser? Is that even supposed to be a legitimate excuse?" asked Trevor on The Daily Show.
Trevor said that he's not saying that mistakes don't happen but he feels that the young man wouldn't have been shot if the police weren't always so quick to draw weapons.
"The reason they don't care is that they know they're going to get away with it. And until that changes, they're just going to keep not caring," said the comedian.
Briefly News previously reported that Daunte Wright, another young black man, was killed by the police and sparked fresh protests. Outrage was sparked among protestors following the police shooting of Daunte Wright.
Protestors shut a portion of the Manhattan Bridge down on Monday night as they marched across the structure. Twitter posts show a large influx of people walking across the upper level of the bridge in an attempt to show solidarity with Wright.
The 20-year-old black man was shot by a Minnesota police officer during a Sunday traffic stop, resulting in his death. Brooklyn Center Police Department came forward stating that the shooting was unintentional as the policewoman had mistaken her gun for a taser.
