Brooklyn Center Mayor, City Council Decide Due Process Is Unnecessary, Fire City Manager

As violence, looting, arson, assault, attacking police officers, the whole gamut, occurred in the streets of Brooklyn Center (how many people lost their businesses, people who had zero to do with the shooting?), and the streets of other cities, the mayor and city council decided to bow to the mob

Daunte Wright shooting: Brooklyn Center city manager fired after call for due process for police officer

Brooklyn Center City Manager Curt Boganey was fired on Monday evening, hours after he publicly disagreed with Mayor Mike Elliott’s assertion that the police officer who fatally shot a Black man in the Minneapolis suburb should be immediately fired in response to the incident.

“Effective immediately our city manager has been relieved of his duties, and the deputy city manager will be assuming his duties moving forward,” Elliott wrote on Twitter. “I will continue to work my hardest to ensure good leadership at all levels of our city government.”

Daunte Wright, 20, was fatally shot during a traffic stop. Bodycam footage showed three officers gathered near a stopped car that police said was pulled over for an expired registration. Police attempted to arrest the man, later identified as Wright, for an outstanding warrant. A struggle ensued, followed by the fatal shooting.

Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon said the officer who shot and killed Wright had intended to fire a Taser, not their service weapon. Authorities have not released the name of the female officer involved in the shooting. (maybe not, but everyone seems to know her name)

The Brooklyn Center City Council voted to fire Boganey, a longtime city employee, during an emergency meeting, the Star Tribune reported. At the same meeting, the council voted to give the mayor command authority over the city’s police department.

During a virtual workshop after the meeting, Council Member Kris Lawrence-Anderson said she voted to fire Boganey out of fear of potential reprisals from protestors if she did not, according to the newspaper.

That’s called bowing to the mob. Mob rule. Running our system of justice on Men, not law, meaning on feelings and whim. What did Boganey say that was so bad?

“All employees working for the city of Brooklyn Center are entitled to due process with respect to discipline,” Boganey said. “This employee will receive due process and that’s really all that I can say today.”

When pressed on whether he personally felt the officer should be fired, Boganey again called for due process.

“If I were to answer that question, I’d be contradicting what I said a moment ago — which is to say that all employees are entitled to due process and after that due process, discipline will be determined,” Boganey said. “If I were to say anything else, I would actually be contradicting the idea of due process.”

ZOMG, that’s horrible! We don’t do that in 2021. But, Brooklyn Center might find itself on the wrong side of a lawsuit from Boganey, if he files a wrongful termination suit. He might have an “at will” type contract, but, for a position like City Manager, that would be highly doubtful. And a court will most likely not find calling for due process as a reason for “termination for cause.” And if they fire the idiot officer – I’m of the opinion that if you’re pulling your pistol instead of tazer, even in the heat of the moment, and deploying it and firing it (they feel different in the hand, and really wouldn’t be in the same spot as firearm), you’re too incompetent to be in the job – before due process, as laid out in the police contract, they’ll get another lawsuit.

And all because they’re bowing to a violent mob. This is bowing to the Heckler’s Veto. It’s dangerous, sets a bad precedent, may result in lawsuits, and, doesn’t work, because the Democratic Party voters will still riot, pillage, loot, destroy, assault, and burn.

    Was the officer arrested? why not? Should she be charged with murder? Why or why not?

    • Dana says:

      Perhaps the prosecutor’s office is examining the evidence, to see if an arrest is warranted.

      Part of the mob rule is the unwarranted rush to justice. If they seized Officer Potter and hauled her out to an oak tree, Mr Dowd would probably approve.

    • Est1950 says:

      The police released the badge cam almost immediately and the officer is screaming Taser, Taser, Taser I’m gonna taser him. But she had drawn her gun instead of the taser.

      Was it premeditated? Don’t think so unless in the heat of the moment this officer thought up a really great way to keep from getting the death penalty.

      Unfortunately, this once again is the stupidity of people. They risk their lives being assholes to asshole cops who can’t dare be one upped on the asshole meter.

      This is the world that assholes meeting assholes live in. I watched one video where a black woman admitted to the cop she had drugs in her purse but didnt care if the cop searched her car or her purse. In fact she handed him the purse while she was on the phone talking about something totally unrelated to being pulled over.

      Once the cop said well I guess you going to jail, the woman lost her mind, ran around the car screaming help me! Jumped in the car, grabbed a gun and started shooting at the cop. The cop was a better shot. The people RIOTED.

      In the end. Anarchy will rule the day because as more and more states adopt this no protection for the police position there will be no cops willing to even talk to anyone, let alone show up and help them out.

      Anarchy baby. I hope your stalking up on bullets because in the near future you call 911 and you will get a recording….IF this is an emergency please hang up and call the coroner!

    Was the officer who shot Ashli Babbitt arrested? Why not? Should he be charged with murder? Why or why not? Last time I looked any homicide whether accidental or premeditated must be adjudicated by a court. We also have the right to know the officer’s name just like any other murder.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Ms Babbitt was shot and killed while crawling through a window, leading a violent mob chanting “Hang Mike Pence!”, into an inner chamber of Congress. Her death, while tragic, prevented the rest of the violent mob from proceeding. Who were the “brave” patriots, seeing an officer with a gun, helping her through the broken opening?

      Why do you find it acceptable to shoot Black but not white lawbreakers?

      Why do you hate black people?
      Why do you hate America?

      Teach: And all because they’re bowing to a violent mob.

      You keep advocating that America prepare for the coming violence resulting from a mythical “stolen election”. You want America to change its policies out of fear. That’s terrorism. How are you different from the mob in Minnesota?

      • drowningpuppies says:

        Maybe Rimjob can point to the actual investigation into the murder of Ashli Babbitt instead of his fantasy conclusions.

        Where is that investigation, smart guy?

        Bwaha! Lolgf

      • Kye says:

        There is nothing “mythical” abiout an election 100 million Americans watched get stolen. You saw it too but you’re a partisan and a liar so it won’t matter to you.

        Ashli Babbitt was an American Patriot exercising her right to Free assembly and to petition the government for a redress of grievances which to this day they have not done. All you fascist do is blame an unarmed woman who posed NO THREAT to anyone including the guy who killed her. However that was not my question, was it?

        My question is why was her murder not investigated? As usual being a coward, a liar and full of hate you do not answer the question.

        “You want America to change its policies out of fear. That’s terrorism.”

        I don’t want America to “change” its policies, I want America to remember its promise to keep the laws for everyone not just the powerful and to maintain the Constitution. BTW words are not “terrorism”. Actions like burning down cities, looting and MURDERING UNARMED WOMEN IS.

        “How are you different from the mob in Minnesota?”

        How? Are you blind or just stupid? By NOT BURNING DOWN MINNESOTA, that’s how. Moron.

        Now you coward:
        Why do you hate White people?
        Why do you hate Christians?
        Why do you hate America?
