** UPDATE ** Veteran Minneapolis cop resigns after she ‘confused her gun for a Taser’ when she shot dead Daunte Wright.
The epidemic of unarmed black men being shot by police continues unabated. A cop shoots a man dead and claims she thought it was a taser she was using. Likely story.
Furious over the fatal shooting, demonstrators gathered Monday night to protest outside the police department of a Minneapolis suburb for a second night in a row.
The familiar refrain, “No Justice No Peace,” was heard among the crowd in Brooklyn Center, alongside the din of conflict.
It was the second night of protests after 20-year-old Daunte Wright was killed by a police officer, identified by authorities as Officer Kim Potter, during a routine traffic stop. A curfew was in effect for Brooklyn Center and police arrested those in violation who ignored dispersal orders, according to Minnesota Operation Safety Net.
