Thread: Kim potter trial

  1. Default Kim potter trial

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn...day/index.html

    Anyone watching this?

    At first I was thinking it was an open and shut involuntary manslaughter case. But thinking about it more, and based on what one witness said about human factor being not perfect, could she be acquitted if she did nothing else wrong or negligent other than grab her sidearm instead of taser? In other words, is there criminal negligence if a mistake falls under that .01% of human fallibility that cannot be overcome with training and precautions?

    I predict mistrial/hung jury or acquittal. Current prediction analysis is at 100% for all trials so far....what do u think?

    It is negligence, but she also wasn't trained on it and it was a new weapon for her. On the Department too, who should be sued.

    I don't know how they wear them there, but every police officer I've seen has their TASER worn weakside, with the pistol grip forward, so you actually reach across your body to grab it. Maybe they don't do that there, I don't know, but that is something that Department probably needs to look into.

    Still, her actions led to the death. It is on her to be proficient with everything she uses. It is on her department too, but she is frontline on it. I think it is negligent homicide, or whatever term they use for it there.

    I think she should walk or get community service. Maybe criminals should stop running from police, but hey it's not a perfect world.

    Isn't working as a cop essentially community service?

    So anyone that runs should be executed?

    Executed denotes a motive and not an accident.

    That hasn't been shown in this case.

    Unless you're Dick Cheney, if you go hunting and accidentally shoot somebody, you will be charged with a crime. Should the rule for accidental shootings be different for police?

    As usual, you are as wrong as you are a coward.

    'you COULD be charged with a crime' is not the same thing as 'you will be charged with a crime'. If you need examples of someone shooting someone else and not being charged, google "accidental shooting no charges" and I'm sure there will be a plethora of examples.

    Should the rule for accidental shootings be different for police?
    No. The rule is the same.

    You can be charged with an crime. She was charged with a crime.

    It will be up to a jury of her peers to convict her with a crime.

    That seems to oversimplify both scenarios
