Brooklyn Center police Chief Tim Gannon and Kimberly Potter, the police officer who fatally shot Daunte Wright during a traffic stop Sunday, have both resigned from the department.

Mayor Mike Elliott announced the chief's resignation during a news conference at City Hall Tuesday afternoon.

In a letter to city officials earlier in the day, Potter wrote that she was resigning effective immediately, according to a statement from Law Enforcement Labor Services, the state's largest public safety labor union.

Elliott told reporters Tuesday that city officials did not ask Potter to resign.

"That was a decision she made," he said.

1. How nice,

they'll wait a few months and get hired somewhere else. Maybe make that move they've been thinking about, somewhere down south.

3. First thing I thought, too.

So she resigns and doesn't have a firing on her record. She relocates. There are places that won't care about her history. There are some that will want her BECAUSE of her history.

Unless she gets charged with something like manslaughter.

2. I'm going to take her move as genuine, until seeing evidence otherwise.

The chief? That was a little closer to inevitable, but I still think he could have survived it.

Which is a hell of a lot more than Daunte Wright got to do.

4. Locking.

The consensus of Forum Hosts agrees this is a duplicate, at best an update of https://www.democraticunderground.com/10142728437. Updates should go into the first post on the topic, not significant enough for its own LBN thread.
