In the United States, after two nights of protests, in a suburb of Minneapolis, against the murder of a black citizen by a police officer, she and the president resigned.
Kim Potter, a 26-year-old veteran of the Brooklyn City Police Department, issued a letter saying, “It is in the best interests of society, management, and fellow officers that I resign immediately.”
It was she who killed Sunday (11) Don Wright, a 20-year-old black male. As the crossing approached, the police discovered he had an arrest warrant.
Daunte tried to escape. Then the police officer warned her that she was going to use the electric stun gun, called the stun gun, but that she was actually shooting the gun.
On Monday (12), the city police chief said it was an accidental shot. He also resigned from his post on Tuesday (13).
An arrest warrant had been made for his failure to respond to an audience who was to answer him for carrying an unauthorized pistol and running away from the police in an approach in June 2020. On Tuesday, when the two policemen were announced the resignation, the mayor said he expected this. This brings a little bit of calm to the community.
In the second, protests were repeated in the region, which became the epicenter of racial tension in the United States. A few kilometers away, in Minneapolis, the country continues the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former police officer accused of killing George Floyd in 2020.
This Tuesday, Donut Wright’s mother received support from the Floyd family. One of Floyd’s brothers said, “Minneapolis, you can’t wipe it under the rug anymore. We will fight for justice for this family as we fight for our brother.”
