According to County Attorney Pete Orput, the Washington County Attorney’s Office will charge former Brooklyn Center police officer Kimberly A. Potter, who resigned yesterday with second-degree manslaughter in the shooting death of Daunte Wright on Sunday.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine and it’s at least the third time that a U.S. law enforcement officer will face criminal charges for killing someone in what they claim or what appears to be a mix-up between a gun and a taser.
Leftist civil rights activist Shaun King expressed disappointment with the charges, expecting a greater charge against the officer.
“The charge is only 2nd degree manslaughter – about as low of a charge as it gets,” King said in a tweet after announcing the report.
King added, “Unless Attorney General Keith Ellison takes the case over, that will be the most she’s charged with.”

The charge is only 2nd degree manslaughter – about as low of a charge as it gets.
Unless Attorney General Keith Ellison takes the case over, that will be the most she’s charged with.
We had previously reported that Mayor Mike Elliot, of Brooklyn Center Minnesota, wants the Governor of Minnesota, Tim Walz, to step in and appoint radical Attorney General Keith Ellison to take over the Daunte Wright case.
Ellison is formerly second in command at the DNC, but resigned arguably for his support of fringe groups like Antifa and has a checkered past.
We said at the time that it’s questionable as to who might have put Elliot up to this and hard to see how it will help heal racial divisions, it appears now that the answer might be activists like King.
