Kimberly Potter trial: With jury set, court turns to opening statements
Two views of the Minnesota police officer who killed Daunte Wright will collide in opening statements at her manslaughter trial. The defense claims that Kimberly Potter made an innocent mistake by pulling her handgun instead of her Taser when she shot Wright in April as he sought to pull away from a traffic stop. The prosecution will portray a veteran officer who had undergone extensive training that warned against such a mix-up.
