Brooklyn Center Sergeant Mike Peterson took the stand today in the Kim Potter trial. Peterson has been a use-of force and Taser instructor since 2007 and the state asked:
“Sgt. Peterson in all the years that you’ve been working in the Brooklyn Center Police department have you been aware of any other officers who drew their handgun when they meant to draw their Taser? I don’t.”
The defense contends that Potter mistakenly drew her gun instead of her Taser when she shot and killed Wright.
