Protesters March In Street After Day One Of Kim Potters Trial


BLM Protesters wasted no time in marching in the streets of Minneapolis after the first day of the Kim Potters trial.

Kim Potters, is a veteran police officer of 26 years, is currently on trial facing 1st and 2nd degree manslaughter after accidentally shooting Daunte Wright, firing her handgun when she intended to fire her taser.

The accident was just that, an accident.

One could easily argue, had she NOT used lethal force (as she intended), she could’ve been sorely mistaken.

Just a reminder, a vehicle is considered a deadly weapon when used with violent intent.

Also another quick reminder of who Daunte Wright is:

People have been in an uproar over this for months leading up to the trial.

But as we’ve researched and seen today from Daunte Wrights victim’s testimony, he was a soulless criminal who had no business being on the streets anymore.

Kim Potters acted in her line of duty, attempting to get the suspect to surrender and he refused.

He tried fleeing the scene while her counter part, Officer Luckey was STILL standing in line of the vehicle.

Even though it was an accident, her use of deadly force was warranted, according to the attorney representing her.

NPR has more on the story:

Attorneys representing Potter said that her use of a weapon was warranted — especially because a fellow officer, Sgt. Mychal Johnson, was leaning into Wright’s car through the passenger door in an attempt to disable the vehicle.

Lawyers said Potter was worried that if Wright chose to speed away, Johnson could be killed.

So she decided to draw her Taser — but mistakenly and unconsciously drew her gun instead, defense attorney Paul Engh said, “much to her everlasting and unending regret.”

“She made a mistake. This was an accident. She’s a human being. But she had to do what she had to do to prevent a death to a fellow officer,” said Engh.

Chaos has already ensued weeks leading to the trial and is anticipated to continue throughout the trial.

Here are some reactions to the case:

Just because he’s dead, doesn’t mean he was a good person, nor does the accident make her using deadly force any less justified.

Justified use of deadly force is justified use of deadly force.

Had he surrendered, this all could’ve been avoided in my opinion.
