As Derek Chauvin Trial Continues, Another Police Killing



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Kingdemtrius Pendleton about as the Derek Chuavin trial continues, another police killing happens.

As the trial of Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis continues in its third week, a police killing in a neighboring suburb of yet another Black man has left the community reeling. Twenty-year-old Daunte Wright was driving his mother’s car with his girlfriend in the suburb of Brooklyn Center when police pulled him over. Now, authorities are claiming that the officer, Kimberly Potter, meant to fire her taser at the young man and instead fatally shot him. Potter has now resigned along with Brooklyn Center Police chief Tim Gannon. The Sunday afternoon shooting sparked more protests in a city on edge, where international attention has focused on the Chauvin trial over the killing of George Floyd.
