Police Shooting Video: Black man killed following tussle with white female officer

Daunte Wright killed by a cop.

MINNEAPOLIS — First, George Floyd. Now this. Law enforcement officials in Minneapolis are once again catching hell after a white police officer killed an unarmed black man over a damn air freshener. The sanguinary ordeal transpired around 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon just miles from where Floyd was asphyxiated. It was also captured on video. Police body cam footage shows officers approaching a white Buick driven by 20-year-old Daunte Wright who had an outstanding warrant. Officers noticed an air freshener dangling from the rearview mirror and pulled his ass over.

As one of the cops tried to place Daunte in handcuffs, a scuffle broke out. Daunte jumped in the vehicle and Officer Kim Potter opened fire. An ailing Daunte drove several blocks before crashing into another vehicle. He was pronounced dead shortly thereafter. Once word got out, riots erupted — forcing the National Guard to intervene.

“He said they pulled him over because he had air fresheners hanging from the rearview mirror,” said Katie Wright, Daunte’s white mother. “A minute later, I called and his girlfriend answered, which was the passenger in the car, and she said that he’d been shot.”

Officials with the Minnesota branch of the American Civil Liberties Union are calling for an “immediate, transparent and independent investigation by an outside agency” and they have “deep concerns that police appear to have used dangling air fresheners as an excuse for making a pretextual stop, something police do all too often to target Black people.”

The shooting spurred some notable reaction from the sports world. Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr called it “another sad day in America.” Both the Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Timberwolves called off their games. “It just makes you sick to your stomach,” said San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich.

“How many times does it have to happen?”

Officer Potter was originally put on paid administrative leave but she later resigned.

She claimed she tried to use a taser, but accidentally discharged the pistol.

Update: Potter was arrested and charged with second-degree manslaughter?

Do you agree with the charge?

Did Daunte commit suicide by cop?

Watch disturbing footage.

    🚨 MOM of the victim needs to sue the state’s police department 🚨 . Make them exhausted of taking lives for minor incidents. I consider a 20 y/o a kid. He was unarmed.

    Police have been trained to apprehend in numerous ways, but they choose to kill simply because they have a license to.

    Imagine if BLM movement become proactive like those ppl in the middle East. Those kids be strapping bombs to themselves to make a statement. Many US states NEED that so they could see how it feels to lose a loved one.

    9/11 shock y’all up a little. That’s REAL hatred ! Minnesota is going to burn to the ground after the Chauvin trial.

  2. Ain’t this about a bytch!? I’ll be damned. Didn’t Minnesota just get done forking over like $127 mil? They got more to spare, I hope because it’s coming

    Don’t have outstanding warrants, and don’t let your registration expire. If you can’t manage that, at least don’t resist arrest and don’t try to escape the cops. Yes the cop messed up but it’s really not hard to keep cops out of your life in the first place. I’ve been doing it for 48 years.

  4. It’s never gonna stop… Wake up People.

    United States government and POLICEMEN around the U.S. have DECLARED War ON BLACK and BROWN PEOPLE in AMERICA. HOW DO BLACK’ S KEEP GETTING KILLED( BY WHITE OFFICERS)? WHY JUDGE’S, JURY, CRIMINAL INVESTIGATORS, POLICE UNIONS etc: (Why)? WHITE OFFICERS KEEP KILLING BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE)? A STUDY STUDY MUST BE DONE ASAP!

  7. Pulling a trigger is not accidental.

  8. Here we go again first thing they’re going to say police officers got a stressful job yeah right it’s only stressful when they murder innocent black people, but it’s not stressful when they arrest Mass murdering white people like Dylan Ruth they took him to go get a hamburger yeah stressful my a*s

  9. It’s okay guys the WHITE COP MADE A MISTAKE he will go home and eat dinner with his family peacefully at night knowing COPS ARENT HELD ACCOUNTABLE let alone a WHITE COP

  10. Definitely didn’t deserve to be shot but when you pull away from being arrested and try to drive away with cops inside your car you best be ready for anything that comes.

  11. Innocent black man is killed
    LETZ RIOT AND GET FREE STUFF

  12. So who’s fault is it? The one resisting arrest and effectively putting themselves in an unpredictable dangerous situation, or the cop that was dumb enough to think a gun was a taser? Maybe BOTH??

  13. Why is it a natural part of their culture to resist arrest? I’ve had a gun drawn on me by a police officer and I stood stool, hands up, followed all his orders and was standing there for about 10 or 12 minutes. Then I found out I matched the description for a man who just assaulted 2 people about 2 blocks away. I was let go. Officer said thanks for being patient and sorry for the confusion then he shook my hand. Afterwords I walked home and had dinner watching TV. I did not go burn and loot my own neighborhood. I wish they could just learn “Don’t Resist Arrest and Bad Things won’t Happen!”

  14. That was not a accidental discharge.

  15. Turning a thug into a hero, cancel, cancel culture

  16. Warrant was for old tags which was a misdemeanor in itself. The problem is tags are delayed due to back up at Motor Vehicle which the Chief said he should have been cited, but they aware of how long you gotta wait for appointments. Can’t just walk in Motor Vehicle!!!!!!!

  17. This is what happens when you defund the police

  18. ActsisMMLJ CorrectlyObeyed

    Stupid is as stupid does you’re a fool to see color.

    It’s clear from watching the body cam several times that the female officers who is a veteran on the force was yelling “taser taser taster” to her fellow officers to pull out thier taser as she consciously held her gun pointed at Daunte Wright. But she chose to shoot him rather then pursue him fleeing in vehicle. If she thought she at a taser in hand for all those seconds or milliseconds she would have used it much quicker.

  20. Baby Chewbacca

    Officer needs better training and so does daunte

  21. King Nazier Austin

    Thugs get slugs 🤷🏽‍♂️…. case closed

  22. There was a white lives matter protest over the weekend. Sh!t flopped like a fish outta water.

  23. Killing unarmed black men is becoming a daily occurrence,was it really necessary to shot and kill a person over air freshener hanging from his mirrors.i hope these pigs can’t prosecuted to the fullest extent.

  24. It seems the police officers don’t even care. They just keep on treating Blacks like hated members of society. SMH….

  25. I wonder if his girlfriend in the car with him was white and they didn’t like that.

  26. Women cops are dangerous

  27. Harlem2Hollywood

    I still don’t get why ni**az wanna live in Minnesota unless you play for the timberwolves or the Vikings get the hell outta Minneapolis that’s white right country

  28. We Can Do This

    Where was the National Guard during the Capitol insurrection? Oh yeah…

  29. Yet Blk men are always on here worrying about Blk women weaves, makeup and decisions yet y’all can’t even get through a traffic stop Alive. Pay attention to that that’s more important dontcha think 🙄

  30. @Esmeralda Tone: Enough of your bullsh!t already, the dude just died and you make jokes about getting through a traffic stop, classless b!tch smh when blk women start getting gunned down by cops imma have that same energy

  31. Shot him without even giving him a chance at all. Just tell him to take the air fresheners down. Wtf is wrong with these racist pigs. So sick of this bs

  32. daunte has a white mom

  33. Drewski Darius

    Amazing how cops didn’t find it necessary to fire on the angry white mob at the Capital attackin them- but too often find it necessary to kill Black men in cars, on the sidewalk, running away from them, standing still…

    So was Black ENUF.
    If he looked like Taylor Swift or Andy Dalton do they shoot?

    …we all know the answer

  34. Bull sht. Amber Guyger

  35. Brother Ashanti ✔™

    Daunte Wright would be alive today if he obeyed The Police.

  36. He had a warrant out for arrest… He tried to run from police…. Yes it is a fact that he did not deserve to be shot… However similar accidents have happened in the past when white people resist arrest… At the end of the day shouldn’t everyone stop commiting crime and we wouldn’t have these problems.

  37. No justice no peace and fuck the Police

  38. Only the Officer knows her intentions. But I believe she had no ability to handle stress. Anyone with PTSD or who understands stress/shock knows the zoning in that takes place. However, as an Officer, she took an oath and full responsibility to serve and protect no matter the stress of the situation. Because of her “”mistake”” a young man, A LIFE is FOREVER GONE. This needs to change. Our lives are not a video game. We have one life that will never be returned. This is why I am preparing to take my little ones away from the city and/or country. This should never be normailized!!!

  39. you don’t mistake a gun trigger for a taser gtfo

    charge her this is bullshit

  40. steven darling

    Where’s the ACCOUNTABILITY? This boy should have manned up, gone in for his warrant, got out the next day with another court date, and he would still be alive today. His death was tragic and I feel for his family, but he made a terrible decision

  41. kim potter should take full responsibility instead of running away and quitting her job.
    very selfish of her to do so.

    BLM leaders jumping for joy!
    They hoping to get personal Lear jets and mega yachts behind these fools!
    🤔

  43. How does an officer mistake a gun for a taser? You have to pull a trigger!
    Don’t you have to point the gun to fire – so you must know its your gun?

  44. Oops thats my gun not my tazer oh well pull anyway

  45. THAT WASN’T MANSLAUGHTER. IT WAS STRAIGHT UP MURDER.

  46. Of course she resigned so she can still get her fuckin pension, but she shouldn’t see a dime of that….. Her and that bullshit chief of police!!!! A fuckin mistake!!! Come on man, please!!

  47. BULLSHIT SHE KNEW WHAT SHE WAS DOING
