$3,250,000 Settlement – Police Misconduct
On April 11, 2021, Brooklyn Center, MN Officer Kim Potter shot Daunte Wright after being stopped for an air freshener hanging from his car mirror. Along with the monetary settlement, the agreement also includes meaningful policy changes to policing, training and traffic stops for things that do not interfere with the safety of drivers, passengers and community members. The University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis/St. Paul will provide the city’s police department with in-depth, comprehensive training on cultural proficiency and implicit bias on a pro bono basis.
