'Outcome reached' in trial of Kim Potter, ex-officer charged in Daunte Wright's death

A Minneapolis jury reached an "outcome" on Thursday in the trial of Kim Potter, a former police officer charged with fatally shooting Daunte Wright, a Black motorist — accidentally, she's claimed, by grabbing her gun instead of a Taser.

Hennepin County Judge Regina Chu is expected to reveal the outcome — reached by a panel of two Asian Americans, one Black person and nine white people — between 1:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. CST.

I'm a betting woman so I'm going to go ahead and say hung jury. I doubt they will re try her.

1. I am leaning toward the same conclusion. Less agreement on retrial decision.

2. I hope you're right. Do you think the Feds will step in?

4. Can't understand why many people advocate using the Federal DoJ

To take a second bite of the proverbial Apple...

5. The Feds are the only ones who can prosecute rights civil violations no?

Do you think she is not guilty?

12. She was found guilty.

Some people seem to think the DoJ is a second shot at people.

Is there ANY evidence this is s Civil Rights related crime? Any? Or just a criminally negligent cop?

She won’t be tried again.

8. It was a taped confession. "I killed him, I'm going to prison" but you are right she will walk.

She has a twin in OK, maybe some of you will remember the Betty Shelby trial? Same deal, pulled a gun instead of a taser. Shelby has been promoted to training new recruits on how to handle people who resist arrest. No kidding.

6. They already said they were deadlocked.

Hung jury seems likely.

Edit: And we have a surprising verdict. Guilty! Fantastic!

9. The question they asked the court was a huge tell.

I have no idea how she confused her gun for a taser, but as her defense attorney said, mistakes happen. 🤦‍♀️

15. I am shocked.

They are asking she be remanded into custody immediately. 😲 She's pissed.

18. I had expected a split

Not guilty of 1st, guilty on 2nd degree

I have no guess on the sentencing

20. I thought she would have shown more emotion, given her testimony.

But maybe she was resigned to reality.

I had to leave home briefly before the judge ruled — what was the reason for remanding her into custody immediately?

21. The judge said she could not treat her any differently

than anyone else. I didn't see any remorse from Potter. She looked angry

22. Thanks.

I did hear the defense’s arguments, and they sounded pretty standard to me.

Her whole reaction, honestly, surprised me after her display on the stand the other day. She just looked — well, hard.

19. I thought it would be a mistrial.

If I had bet on that. it would have been a bet I wouldn’t have minded losing.
