Kim Potter has been found guilty of first-degree manslaughter and second-degree manslaughter charges for fatally shooting Daunte Wright during a traffic-stop-turned-arrest.

First degree is voluntary manslaughter. Second degree is involuntary manslaughter. I think Potter was guilty of second degree but not first degree which implies she intentionally shot Wright.

Even the prosecution called the shooting a "blunder" and a "screw up".

    I agree with you Curt.

    In my opinion, this is another instance of the imperfection in our justice system. To me, involuntary manslaughter would have been the appropriate verdict. I think it's a tragedy that people like George Zimmerman and Rittinghouse were able to kill people and simply walk away. I don't think Rittinghouse was guilty of murder but I do think he was definitely guilty of "Reckless Endangerment" which resulted in the unnecessary deaths of two people.

    "Potter is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 18. The state's sentencing guidelines recommend a sentence of roughly seven years for the first-degree charge and four years for the second-degree charge, though prosecutors indicated they would seek a longer sentence." *

    I read the sequence of events that led up to officer Potter killing Daunte Wright. There was a warrant out for Wright for carrying an unregistered firearm and he had a restraining order out on him. He was also driving without a license or car registration. If he hadn't resisted arrest and returned to the driver's seat, he wouldn't have ended up getting shot and killed.

    I don't often side with cops in incidents like this, but I agree with islander that Potter should have been charged and convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

    I saw the body cam video at the time.

    This is a tough one. I don't know the nuances of the law there. Common sense tells me that this was involuntary manslaughter.

    I'm trusting the judge to practice wisdom in sentencing.
