Justice for All: Next Steps in Community Safety Reform Former police officer Kim Potter was convicted on December 23, 2021 of first- and second-degree manslaughter in connection to the fatal shooting of Daunte Wright. We mourn the loss of Daunte and wish to extend our heartfelt condolences to the Wright family. Daunte was a young father, son, and friend who should still be here with us today. As Attorney General Keith Ellison said, the guilty verdict represents a "measure of accountability" on the "long road to justice for all". Our Council believes that it is critical that Minnesota continues the difficult march down the road that leads to justice for all. This requires our state puts in place constructive and preventive measures that improve our statewide standards of justice and policing and, thereby, reduce our vulnerabilities to deadly force incidents such as the killings of Daunte Wright and George Floyd.
