Here is the news media explaining it in the immediate aftermath of the traffic stop shooting a distraught. Kim Potter predicted prison for making the deadly mistake pulling her firearm instead of her taser killing Dante wright 10 months and a guilty manslaughter verdict.

Later, Potter Will Learn Her Fate The

former Minnesota” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>Brooklyn Center cop staring at a presumed seven plus years in prison, though her defense is arguing for probation. The state was asking the judge to give Kim Potter seven years in prison. While the defense was asking for probation now seven years is the normal sentence for this type of crime. Now the judge in this case shocked everyone and sentenced Kim Potter to only 24 months in prison, which really turns out to about 16 months in prison with two months time served she’s probably going to be out in about 14 months and on parole now there’s outrage in the black community and the Blm movement and we’ll talk about that a little later. But this is not about the length of time that Kim Potter got but why she got any time at all now the most interesting.

Part Of The Sentencing Hearing Is That

the judge seemingly admitted that Ken Potter was not guilty and that’s a very frustrating piece of this case. Now Kim Potter was convicted of consciously disregarding an unjustifiable risk, causing the death of Dante Wright and this is under Minnesota’s involuntary manslaughter laws. So the question is what does it mean to consciously disregard an unjustifiable risk, Let me give you an example let’s say John works at a toy store and John has a gun for protection. Let’s say that John has a friend that comes to visit him at the store. John shows him the gun and then points the gun at his friend as a joke.

He Consciously Points The Gun To His Friend

as a joke to scare his friend right Hey the gun goes off killing John’s friend well. This is a classic example of reckless manslaughter. Involuntary reckless Manslaughter See John consciously disregarded an unjustifiable risk that risk of pointing a loaded gun at someone and then disregarding the fact that if the gun goes off, you could seriously injure that person now in this example, mistake would not be a defense. John couldn’t say I mistakenly shot him right because John consciously put his friend in that wrist so essentially John can’t put his friend at this unjustified risk and if something bad happens, then claim it was accidental so under the law. John committed a crime involuntary manslaughter now let’s contrast that to Jane, who also works in the same toy story now.

Jane Saw What Happened To John So Jane

takes the gun and puts it in a safe and locks it up. Jaina’s like i’m not going to be like John a customer that comes to the store and Jane goes to. the toy gun section, Jane grabs a toy gun off the shelf. Pointed at this customer pulls the trigger and Bam customer is killed unknown to Jane someone placed their real gun on that shelf. Jane kills the customer so is Jane a criminal well.

See The Major Difference In These Stories Is

that first John knew that he was pointing a loaded gun at his friend Jane did not know she was pointing a loaded gun at the customer. Jane was unconscious of the risk matter of fact. Jane didn’t think there was a risk at all, and this is where the defense of mistake does apply See Jane unconsciously put the customer at risk. Unlike before where John consciously put his friend at risk. So under the Lord Jane would not have committed a crime while John would have committed one now let’s apply this reasoning to the.

Kim Potter Case So The Key Question

in the Kim Potter case was was Kim Potter conscious that she was pointing a gun at someone or was Ken Potter unconscious that she was pointing a gun at someone that’s the difference between criminally liable and not criminally reliable, so we’re going to let the judge answer that question for us check. This out officer Potter’s conduct was significantly less serious than your typical manslaughter case. The misdemeanor predicate for the manslaughter count was reckless handling or use of a firearm. Here everybody agrees and the evidence is undisputed that officer Potter never intended to use her firearm. She mistakenly drew her firearm at all times, intending to use her Taser.

There Were Police Officers And Experts Who Testified

that the use of her taser was reasonable and appropriate under the circumstances circumstances presented for officer safety reasons. The fact she. never intended to draw her firearm makes this case less serious than other cases. Second the same was chaotic tense and rapidly evolving so in this case, the judge seemingly has admitted that in the case. In this case, Kim Potter thought she was pointing a toy gun or taser at dante wright, just like Jane, who unconsciously thought she was pointing a toy gun at the customer everybody agrees and the evidence is undisputed that Officer Potter never intended to use her firearm.

She Mistakenly Drew Her Firearm At All

times intending to use her taser that would mean she’s not guilty. This is why I believe the judge is struggling with this case. This is the reason why I think the judge was in tears when she was reading this sentence officer Potter made a mistake that ended tragically she never intended to hurt anyone her conduct cries. out for her sentence significantly below the guidelines. This is also the reason why I think the judge gave this woman two years instead of seven years, which is normally given for this crime and I think even for the broader context.

Think About The Implications Of This Verdict.

Any accident can now lead to someone being criminally charged think about a doctor prescribing wrong medication right unconsciously. They write the wrong medication and give it to a customer. think about a waitress who mistakenly gives someone with peanut allergies a dish for peanuts unconsciously right. I did not know now I understand the race beaters are going to point to Mammad right the black officer who was also convicted of manslaughter.

Here Is What Theyre Saying About The

mammad noor case. There is an officer named Officer Noor who must be sitting in some institution somewhere in the United States, wondering what about him the distinction that the court made between the Officer North situation and this situation is mind-boggling the the quoting of President Obama. The ramifications of this decision go far beyond this case. There are plenty of folks who are now wondering what a black life is worth that it is equal justice in America, but when we have senators sentences like this it makes it difficult to make those arguments because wasn’t Mammad Noah trying to do the exact same thing. They said Kim Potter was trying to do he was trying to look out for his fellow officers safety as well.

He Was Very Remorseful As Well, But They

didn’t make a downward departure for the black police officer like they made for this white policewoman. that’s problematic to many people of color in America that we continue to see this intellectual justification to make sure that seems like they get the most of justice and we get the most of injustice. The question is what is the difference between the norcase and the potter case well simple nor intentionally and consciously drew his gun pointed it at someone and shot them while Potter unintentionally unconsciously drew her gun and pointed it and killed someone here’s the judge explaining it the other officer cases tried in this court are distinguishable. This is not a cop found guilty of murder for using his need to pin down a person for nine and a half minutes as he gasped for air. This is not a cop found guilty of manslaughter for intentionally drawing his firearm and shooting across his partner and killing an unarmed woman who approached approached.

His Squad This Is A Cop Who Made

a tragic mistake. She drew her firearm, thinking it was a taser and ended up killing a young man, so mammad Noor consciously drew his gun while Potter unconsciously drew her gun. So legally those cases are different one as committed a crime one has not committed a crime. This judge by sentencing pondered 24 months. I think accomplished two things number one she made it harder for water to appeal.

.

She only got 14 months and if she happens to win the appeal and they order let’s say a new trial. Then she could get more time if she’s convicted again right so it’s kind of like ah. I get seven years. If i’m convicted again or do I just do 14 months and call it a day and then second Potter may feel that the 14 months is appropriate.

Right, She May Say Well Hell, Even

though it was a mistake. I killed this kid and I should punish in some way and 14 months in prison versus a 20-year-old not being around you know I’ll take that deal and she may just do her time and call it a day now. At the end of the day. Kim Potter should pay a civil price right or maybe even lose her job, but a conviction for a crime for an honest mistake is not justice and I think the judge and I think even the prosecutors know that so at the end of the day did I convince you do you now understand why Potter should have been found not guilty if you disagree with me tell me why I’m wrong show me why you think this conviction is legally correct Now I know there’s going to.

Be A Whole Bunch Of People Nature

helping the white people kill more black people nature A bad guy Nate, Why are you doing this understand this people? I’m a lawyer. I care about the law. I care about the process Do I understand that people are going to be upset. They’re going to see white cop Black kid and and jump to conclusions Yes but the law is clear in these matters and if you can’t understand why a cop who makes a mistake is different than a cop who intentionally points a gun at someone then maybe we have farther to go to be honest with you.

I Think Any Time This Woman Spins

in jail that in of itself is injustice. I challenge you to prove me wrong. My name is Nate, the lawyer and I’m out of here peace.
