Daunte Wright's family on Potter sentencing: System "murdered" him "all over again"
Daunte Wright's mother, Katie Wright, said Friday that the justice system "murdered" her son "all over again," after former Brooklyn Center police officer Kim Potter was sentenced to two years for shooting the 20-year-old Black man.
The family's attorneys, Ben Crump, Antonio Romanucci and Jeff Storms, said in a statement that the family was "completely stunned."
"While there is a small sense of justice because she will serve nominal time, the family is also deeply disappointed there was not a greater level of accountability. The Judge's comments at sentencing showed a clear absence of compassion for the victim in this tragedy and were devastating to the family."
"Judge Chu’s comments about Potter resembled those of a job recommendation and not that of a senseless and preventable death of a promising life."
