Daunte Wright’s parents appeared on “Good Morning America” (GMA) on Tuesday and gave a very emotional account of events of the day their son was fatally shot by Minnesota police officer Kim Potter.
The Wrights’ attorneys Ben Crump and Jeff Storms were also present during the interview.
Mrs. Wright broke down a few times as she talked about seeing her son for the last time, and her calling his phone and the girl he was with letting her know that the police had shot him and he was lying in the driver seat unresponsive.
Mr. Wright said he cannot accept that officer Potter made a mistake pulling her handgun instead of her taser because his son is dead.
I cannot accept that… I lost my son. He’s never coming back! I can’t accept that, a mistake that’s not… that doesn’t even sound right.
You know… this officer has been on the force for 20 plus… 26 years, I can’t accept that.
Nor should he accept that… Daunte Wright was stopped because he had air fresheners hanging from his rearview mirror and he loss his life… WTH!!!
Watch the emotional GMA video below:
Kim Potter announced her resignation from the force today, but she needs to be held accountable for taking Daunte Wright’s life.
Hopefully, the Wrights’ attorneys will get justice in this case even though that will not bring their son back it will provide them with some closure.
Our deepest condolences and prayers are with Daunte Wright’s parents and family members.
When will this nonsense STOP?
