  1. If a cop can’t tell the difference between a Taser and a handgun then they are not fit to be a cop or be armed.

    • Not to mention, the cop in Virginia said, “Boy, you getting ready to Ride the lightning” which means he was getting ready to tase him. Or maybe shoot him, who knows.

      What I don’t get is that even after the officer pulled out the gun instead of the taser, she did not realize it then… she even called out “taser” but then pulled the trigger. Are tasers shaped and mechanized the same as guns??

    • teddy ruxspin | April 13, 2021 at 11:02 PM | Reply

      @Liron Deline yes

    • @teddy ruxspin No, they are not the same. It was more of a rhetorical question. Tasers are plastic and bright yellow. Guns are solid black and heavy metal, also placed on the dominant side of the belt so the officer does not confuse the two.

  2. It was an accident? Okay then. Manslaughter is still a crime, lock her up.

    • @SouthSide_ Chicago79 🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾

    • He provoked the incident by shoving the police. What is it with blacks trying to be hardcore?! It gets you dead!

    • @Just Jess he caused his own death… when he failed to obey…
      his actions, lead to his death
      there for
      ONLY his action are responsible for his death

      the lil mutt, in his disobedience… committed suicide by cop
      and the world is better off with him gone

      @TRUMP 2024 oh i get it , if you resist arrest then you are guilty and deserve to be executed on the side of the road without a trial…dead until proven guilty i guess…ya sounds like a ” free ” country to me . Look it may have indeed been an accident but if you make a big enuff mistake in ANY other job you get fired,.cops get paid leave .

    • They act like she accidentally shot a hole in her sofa at home, not a human being.

      @TRUMP 2024 LOL says the troll bot account made just over a week ago.

    • @Lawrence bolt Said very well not to honor that @Dump Comment. YouTube is allowing trolls to taunt and bait people who just want to talk about what they feel strongly on, and their processing of reports on hate speech and harassment is now little to none. When we see the trend, we can make a POA, and mine is to 😕 at trolls and mute notifications from them so they don’t buzz MY phone trying to get under my skin and darken my outlook.

    • @Rune – Thorne You have a really good grasp of how “welfare” works. I’m sorry you were affected by the pandemic; it brought a LOT of people who had never needed assistance to food lines and assistance programs, and in turn showed some of them how the vast majority of not-well-off people live every day. Were it not for that assistance/welfare, how many people would have been in an EXTREMELY bad way…? I hope you are doing well again and back on your feet.

    • @Lawrence bolt That proverb was PRICELESS! Thank you for Sharing it!

    So basically what the police chief is saying is that training doesn’t work
    Maybe she didn’t remember if she was right handed or left handed

  6. A person whose been a police officer for 26 years can tell the difference between her gun and taser. FOH

    She’s been placed on standard administrative leave and will be RIGHT BACK ON THOSE STREETS making “accidental” mistakes very SOON! 🙄

    • @TRUMP 2024 do you think that conservatives are somehow immune to becoming single mothers or welfare recipients? I promise both of those occur at similar rates amongst Republicans and Democrats. The main difference is conservatives shun and disenfranchise single mothers and the poor while progressives seek to help them. Work on those critical and objective thinking skills little guy.

    • @Stalin Adolf why do you idiots think everything is liberal and conservative?

    • She’s now resigned from her LEO job.

  8. brilliantly said, ty all, but she had 26 years in, no rookie, not a ‘mistake’. something is very wrong in that city, with that whole murderous pd!!!

    • Shane Peterson | April 13, 2021 at 12:12 PM | Reply

      Hmmmmmm because somebody with 26 years experience in something is the inability to make mistakes. GTFOH

    • @Shane Peterson A gun and a taser? Killing someone as a result? Yes. After 26 years that’s an insane claim to make. Two different sides of her body?
      Or do you think it would be easy to confuse your taser with your wallet? This is just her attempt to get out of a murder charge after murdering an unarmed man.

    Wow, they sure had a lot of police and National Guard. Nothings like Jan 6 with white insurrection

  10. Wow. More protesters were arrested last night than the terrorists who marched on the capital on January 6th.

    • @TRUMP 2024 Manafort – charges of conspiracy against the United States. Manafort also failing to register as a foreign agent of Ukraine and Giuliani’s Ukrainian guy was a Russian intelligence operative and Manafort’s contact was also a Russian intelligence operative. So who exactly was Manafort conspiring with?

      your definition of protesters is too far to the left. Rioters you mean. 405 were arrested in Washington. How many were arrested in Minneapolis?

    • Why is this shocking? Totally different administration. Wow, you people are slow.

    • @Alex Hamilton 414 right-wing terrorist insurgents who stormed the Capitol have been arrested so far (only about 30 were arrested at the Capitol on the day of the attempted coup) and about 40 protesters were arrested this week in Minneapolis.

    • Liron Deline | April 13, 2021 at 9:09 PM | Reply

      There have been hundreds of arrests so far in regards to 1/6/21

    Funny how reactive the response is but when it comes to domestic terrorist storming the Capitol, “nah let them”

    • William Harrison | April 13, 2021 at 7:52 PM | Reply

      Exactly Right

    • It’s a matter of numbers. Police outnumbered Wright, so they had were in control, and then they overreacted. At the capital, the police were severely outnumbered. The national guard had been delayed. The police were unable to stop the mob, despite trying their hardest in most cases. And there were some instances of cops that were working with the rioters. They were simply traitors.

      @David Hale they were storming the capitol!!!!

    • Liron Deline | April 13, 2021 at 9:04 PM | Reply

      @David Hale LOL the officer was telling that woman to stay back, to not break/come through the glass… a mob behind her cheering her on as she trespassed and vandalized the capitol that she and others broke into in order to thwart a federal and lawfully sanctioned session of congress to confirm the electoral votes. That’s call insurrection and sedition… which is called treason. Was the officer wrong in discharging his gun? Perhaps… but maybe she and everyone should not have been storming the capitol. What do you think they would have done to the officer if they had all gone gotten through?? Seeing what they did to others on the scene.

  12. You can’t be a 26-year veteran police officer and claim you didn’t not recognize your fully loaded weapon from a taser. That was another test run.

      “but your honor, the fool resisted arrest, pushed my partner and I only had seconds to react to stop him, human error” Precedent? Every case where someone
      with a warrant out on them is stupid, resist arrest, makes a run for it and is now wishing they had a do over.

    • What makes you think that she meant to shoot Daunte Wright? Besides your hunch.

    The police need to be careful of what they ask for. You can’t expect this not to happen when you say we investigated ourselves and found ourselves not guilty.

  16. She’s been a cop longer than that young man was alive..imagine telling future members of that family why he’s no longer there. The real reason why, not the lame excuse…

      @Judith Wake resisting arrest is a non life threatening crime is it Judith Woke? That’s interesting. A lie, but an interesting one. Let’s say miss woke, as a hypothetical, that youre a cop and you try to arrest me and I resist this attempt of an arrest by grabbing my gun and shooting you in the head. That’s resisting arrest right there, and I’d argue a very effective method of it if I could pull it off before you get to your gun. Is that not life threatening though? You gonna yell about how resisting arrest is an act of peace and love with a bullet in the brain? Forgive me, but I just don’t see it. The reason your lie is interesting though, is because you’re not the first I’ve seen using it. Why do you think that is? Do you think you might be taking part in forcing a narrative maybe or?

    • @Paul Wilson Resisting arrest is not punishable by death, even if it was the police are not judge, jury and executioner despite right wing fascist fantasies to make it so.

      T Ross I can tell them. This is a horrible tragedy If Mr. Wright had complied to police and did not resist arrest
      and try to run to his car he would still be alive today. Unfortunately because of his actions the police officer rushed
      to grab her taser and pulled her gun instead and shot and killed Mr. Wright. She will be given her due process as with all Americans.
      The only good thing that can come out of this tragedy is that people who have warrants on them should comply with police when they are stopped and apprehended.
      If you do not then there are 3 possible endings. More jail time, Hospital time, or a temporary space at the city morgue for a few days.

    • T Ross what do you think is “the real reason”? What makes a reason “lame “, that it isn’t what you want to believe?

  17. 26 year veteran. Gun on strong side, taser on weak side. Training, training, training. Muscle memory until you just don’t make mistakes. Still waiting for an explanation

    Like Trevor Noah said, it’s really funny how they can identify a gun when it is on a victim, but can not identify the gun on their own hip from a taser?

  19. I understand the anger we’re feeling and looting does not help the situation at all it’s like setting your own house fire.

    • Call your senators & protect your COUNTRY! Tell them to PASS the Justice & Policing Act in the Senate NOW ! In a system that is this unresponsive to the well being and wishes of the public it serves, VIOLENCE is the ONLY WAY TO GET THEIR ATTENTION ! Call your senators & protect your city ! PASS the Justice & Policing Act in the Senate now !
