Kim Potter, the police veteran with 26 years on the force who murdered 20-year-old Daunte Wright at a routine traffic stop, has resigned. So has Tim Gannon, head of the Brooklyn Center police.
Today is also the day when Derek Chauvin's defense begins its side. Tensions are high in Minnesota, where curfew is currently in place in place for several Minnesota cities.

I mean, if you can’t tell the difference between your gun or your taser maybe you shouldn’t be a policeman.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) April 13, 2021
Daunte Wright’s killing was not a random, disconnected “accident” - it was the repeated outcome of an indefensible system that grants impunity for state violence, rewards it w/ endlessly growing budgets at the cost of community investment, & targets those who question that order.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 13, 2021
How bad is the Minnesota Police Department?— KID VICIOUS🔪 (@kirkacevedo) April 13, 2021
Officer Kim Potter is a 26 year Police veteran.
She is the union rep for her local police union.
She was training another officer during the time of the incident.
She thought a Glock was a Taser....#KidVicious🤦🏻♂️

MN cops pulled him over because he had an air freshener on his rearview mirror- moments later he was shot and killed.
Meanwhile white mass shooters are consistently arrested unscathed.

Before I go I would like to ask when will this madness stop! A mistake??? My heart aches for Daunte’s parents and family and especially for him! Gone much too soon. May he find peace within the arms of our Heavenly Father.— Dionne Warwick (@dionnewarwick) April 13, 2021
Stay safe out there, fam.
