Kim Potter, the Officer Who Fatally Shot Daunte Wright, and the Brooklyn Center Police Chief Have Both Resigned

The fatal shooting of Daunte Wright on Sunday by a Minnesota police officer immediately resulted in the officer being both identified and released. The officer has been identified as Kim Potter and she and the Brooklyn Center Police Chief filed her resignation on Tuesday.

According to the Washington Post, Potter was a 26-year veteran of the Brooklyn Center Police Department and was president of the police union. While Mayor Mike Elliott said Monday he believed Potter should be fired, Elliott told reporters Tuesday that the city had not asked Potter to resign. She had been on administrative leave after the shooting, pending an investigation by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

Given that Elliot may have received "command control" from the police department, it is entirely possible that she was released in the coming days, and her resignation was an attempt to avoid that outcome.

From the Washington Post:
According to her LinkedIn page, Potter joined the Brooklyn Center Police Department in 1995. She was first admitted to practice as a police officer in Minnesota that same year at the age of 22, the Star Tribune reported. According to the group's Facebook page, she was elected president of the Brooklyn Center Police Officer's Association in 2019. She was also a longtime member of the Minnesota Law Enforcement Memorial Association, where she served on her "coffin team".
Potter, who is married to a former police officer and has two grown sons, most recently served on the Brooklyn Center Police negotiating team, the Star Tribunereported.
She has been involved in a fatal police shootout in the past.
In 2019, Potter was one of the first to arrive at a home in the Minneapolis suburbs after two officers fatally shot a mentally ill man six times after allegedly assaulting her with a knife. This emerges from a report that was last published by the public prosecutor of the Hennepin district year.
"I've loved every minute of being a cop and doing my best to serve this community, but I believe it is in the best interests of the community, the department, and my colleagues if I resign immediately," Potter wrote in her resignation letter.
At no point in her letter was there any regret, remorse, or even an offer of condolences to Wright's family. As many have pointed out, it's strange that she wrote that she loved "every minute" as a police officer, considering she just fatally shot someone on duty. Did she love those minutes too?
The fact that she was a 26 year old veteran makes her inability to tell the difference between a taser and a gun even more mind-boggling. What is the point of having 26 years of experience when it suddenly goes out the window when it matters most?

Tim Gannon, now the former head of the BCPD, also submitted his resignation on Tuesday, according to CBS Minnesota. Gannon's handling of the city protests and non-committal responses during a press conference about the shooting drew the ire of many Brooklyn Center residents. It is unclear what motivated his decision to step down.
While Potter is unlikely to face any repercussions in the department following her resignation, she could still face criminal prosecution. Washington County attorney Pete Orput told the Star Tribune that he intends to conduct a "thorough but expedited" review of possible charges by Wednesday.
Wright's shooting only increased tension in Minnesota. Brooklyn Center is just a few miles from Minneapolis, where former cop Derek Chauvin is currently on trial for the death of George Floyd last May. Protesters took to the streets on Monday evening to express their fear of another black life that has been pointlessly interrupted by police violence.
I just can't get rid of the feeling that this is going to end the way it usually does: the cop will have no consequences, people will take to the streets, and white America will be more upset about property damage than the fact that as long as you have a badge on your chest you can take a life and get away with it.
