Police shoot and kill an unarmed man after a traffic stop for ‘air fresheners,' claiming it was an accident.


20-year-old Daunte Wright was pulled over by police over an alleged expired tag. Officer Kim Potter, a 26-year veteran of the department, pulled out her gun and put a bullet in Wright's chest. The medical examiner concluded that Wright "died of a gunshot wound of the chest and manner of death is homicide" Police are attempting to downplay the homicide by claiming the officer who killed Wright, though she thought she grabbed her taser instead of her gun. "It is my belief that the officer had the intention to deploy their Taser but instead shot Mr. Wright with a single bullet," Chief Tim Gannon, Chief of the Brooklyn Center Police Department said. The police department is claiming it was an accident, Gannon said, and that Wright's mother heard a scuffle and an officer telling her son not to run, and then the call dropped off.  "He said they pulled him over because he had air fresheners hanging from his rearview mirror," his mother said. The officer who shot and killed an unarmed man in police custody is still on paid leave. Minneapolis mayor declares a state of emergency after protesters swarm police stations. The police officer is still employed by the police department and enjoying paid leave as her family mourns the loss of their son. The NRA is silent over the death, as it is when it comes to the gun rights of those killed by police, as they do with the death of the man they call an innocent bystander who was carrying a gun without a permit, which is legal in Minnesota.
