MINNEAPOLIS – The manslaughter trial for former Minnesota Police Officer Kim Potter is set to begin with opening statements on Wednesday, nearly eight months after the veteran cop shot and killed Daunte Wright while trying to arrest the young Black man during a traffic stop in a Minneapolis suburb.
Potter, 49, had been an officer for 26 years and was working for the Brooklyn Center Police Department on April 11, 2021, when she and other officers, including a trainee, attempted to stop Wright and then tried to arrest him after learning of a warrant for his arrest. Wright, 20, can be seen in a police video climbing back into the driver’s seat of a vehicle as the officers scuffle with him.
The article goes on to state the following:
In Potter’s body camera video from the shooting, she can be heard yelling, “I’ll tase you!” and “Taser! Taser! Taser!” before firing her handgun.
After firing her gun instead of her taser, Potter was then heard saying, “I grabbed the wrong f—— gun,” and “Holy s—, I just shot him.”
Days later she resigned from the police department, and was then charged with first- and second-degree manslaughter.
Potter’s attorney has said she will testify in her own defense during the trial.
Daunte Wright was a violent evil predator. He shot a kid in the head at a gas station, robbed and sexually assaulted a woman at gun point, and shot another guy in the leg to steal his car. He did all of this before fighting police who tried to arrest him. https://t.co/eUs69bsIg0
