Ben & Jerry's demands police reform following death of Daunte Wright

Former NYPD Detective reacts to new calls to dismantle the police on ‘FOX Business Tonight’
Ben & Jerry’s is calling to defund and reform the criminal justice system following the death of Daunte Wright. The 20-year-old Black man was shot by a police officer in a Minneapolis suburb over the weekend.
"The murder of Daunte Wright is rooted in white supremacy and results from the intentional criminalization of Black and Brown communities," the Vermont-based ice cream maker tweeted from its official account on Monday. "This system can’t be reformed."
"It must be dismantled and a real system of public safety rebuilt from the ground up," Ben & Jerry’s argued, adding the hashtag #DefundThePolice.
