This Mayor is now in the running for the Carnac the Magnificent Award of 2021.
Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott told reporters Tuesday that he does not believe officers need to have weapons during every traffic stop. His comments follow the shooting death of Daunte Wright on Sunday.
“I don’t believe that officers need to necessarily have weapons every time they’re making a traffic stop,” Mayor Elliott said in a video tweeted by the Washington Examiner. The mayor also said officers might not need weapons in other situations as well....
Cops should call the Mayor to ask which traffic stops do--and which do not--require weapons. Apparently this Mayor knows the answers.
Like Carnac the Magnificent.
