When Daunte Wright called his mother shortly before he was shot by former Brooklyn Center Police Officer Kim Potter, he told her he was being pulled over for an air freshener.
It turns out, he was pulled over for expired tags even though there were delays of multiple months to obtain tags due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Reporter Nicholas Bogel-Burroughs of The New York Times reported police had added two rows of fencing, on which protesters were hanging air fresheners.
