Happening Now: The body camera video of yesterday’s police-involved shooting of Daunte Wright has been released (see below). Clearly, the police officer thought she was deploying her Taser when, in fact, she pulled her gun. You can hear the officer yell “Taser, Taser, Taser,” indicating she is about to discharge her Taser, but she fires her handgun. Daunte Wright fled in his vehicle after being shot but he died shortly after pulling away.
After watching the video (you’ll need to turn the sound on), please share your thoughts in the comment section.
