Former President Obama on Tuesday called for a full and transparent investigation into the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright and for the U.S. to reimagine policing.

Our hearts are heavy over yet another shooting of a Black man, Daunte Wright, at the hands of police. Its important to conduct a full and transparent investigation, but this is also a reminder of just how badly we need to reimagine policing and public safety in this country, Obama said in a statement.

Michelle and I grieve alongside the Wright family for their loss. We empathize with the pain that Black mothers, fathers, and children are feeling after yet another senseless tragedy, Obama continued. And we will continue to work with all fair-minded Americans to confront historical inequities and bring about nationwide changes that are so long overdue.

It wasn’t an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist. Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence, Tlaib tweeted. “Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed.”
