Jury selection is set to begin Tuesday in the manslaughter trial of a former Minnesota police officer who fatally shot a Black man while yelling “Taser” during a traffic-stop-turned-arrest earlier this year.

Kim Potter is charged with first and second-degree manslaughter in the death of Daunte Wright, 20, on April 11 in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center. Potter was a 26-year veteran of the Brooklyn Center Police Department, and the police chief resigned two days later.

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison is prosecuting the case. Potter is being represented by attorneys Earl Gray and Paul Engh. Gray also represents a former Minneapolis police officer charged in the death of George Floyd and previously represented an officer who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop outside St. Paul.

Civil rights attorney Ben Crump is representing Wright’s family.

    Daunty's mom said she's just hoping for justice … there won't be any justice tho !! The police officer said she didn't know the difrence between a gun and a tazer and to me that's shocking but she will get away with it still !!

    She's going to serve time on negligent manslaughter…. there's no way she can claim it was an accident '.. these police officers have hours of training

    After a particularly bad experience with an Australian cop I instantly think I have to suicide when I’m about to engage with cops.
    My messed up logic is “i have to kill myself to stay safe from police.”
    To me, Police are a danger/threat.
    In a more sane moment I managed to speak to a senior sergeant and I let him know that if Police ever attempt a welfare check on me again I will very likely quietly suicide before they reach my door. We came to an agreement that they’ll send me a text, chat for a bit and I (having no choice as they need to sight me) can choose a location where the Senior Sergeant and a colleague can meet me to see what the go is.
    And I’ll work with that.
    But….. honestly, if cops came up my driveway just to ask a general question…. Say about a breakin at a neighbours for an example… I would very likely be dead before they get the chance to even talk to me.
    To me, Police are just violence and a personification of hate.
    And the couple of genuinely nice Police Officers with good intentions aren’t enough for the damage done by the multitude of frightening and scary experiences or the insults, disrespect etc that is completely unacceptable but seems to be the norm for police…. Who pretend to be a special kind of greatness but in fact sow hatred and a deep fear within communities that passes through generations.
