It was an accident!
Potter’s defense shared everything, and it supports the fact that the event was an accident.
Right after the incident happened, Officer Potter was distraught, and that could be seen in the video.
Nothing was done on purpose.
The first expert’s testimony was from David Katz, an ex-senior special agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration and the CEO of Global Security Group.
David Katz emphasized Potter’s accidental draw of her firearm vs. her taser.
Fox News covered this story:
”Witness testimony is underway in the manslaughter trial of former Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, police Officer Kim Potter in the death of Minneapolis 20-year-old Daunte Wright, renewing attention over the debate of police use of force and raising questions about how an officer could mistake a handgun for a Taser.
“Every Taser course I know of emphasizes making sure you don’t inadvertently pull one when you need the other,”
“That is why most departments use the Taser in a cross-draw position, which is separate from the strong-side holster for the regular firearm.”
“This type of error happens,” she said. “She’s not the first one and likely will not be the last to have these errors occur. They are few and far between, but they occur.”
Experts estimated to The Associated Press that instances in which officers mistake their handgun for a Taser happen less than once per year. According to an article in Americans for Effective Law Enforcement, there have been nine documented instances since 2001.”
Kim Poter isn’t the first one to make a mistake and take the firearm instead of the taser. Surely, she won’t be the last!
