Rep. Omar at Daunte Wright Funeral: ‘Tragedy’ that Columbus Police ‘Took’ Ma’Khia Bryant’s Life

‘May Daunte Wright serve as a guardian for all of us’

EXCERPT:

OMAR: “But as a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, as one of the youngest and newest members of the Congressional Black Caucus, I also have guardians. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and our chairwoman Joyce Beatty serve as guardians for me and many of my colleagues. Joyce Beatty was going to be here and speak on behalf as the chairwoman of our caucus, but just like we’ve been visited by tragedy here in Minnesota often, she in Columbus, Ohio, was visited by a tragedy of a young woman whose life was taken by Columbus police.”
