Kim Potter: Manslaughter or not?

Debate Information

We all have heard about the more recent cases regarding peoples' deaths, but this one intrigues me, as it's very clearly manslaughter if you meant to pull out a taser, but shot a guy instead on accident. I've seen people say that Kim should be let free without any consequences with bogus viewpoints, but I'd like to see if someone can make even a good claim that she deserves to be let go. And to those that don't know much about this case, Kim Potter arrived at the scene for a bench warrant (failure to show up at a court) for Daunte Wright, then she kept saying "I'll tase you" if he didn't comply, she then accidentally pulled out her gun instead and shot and killed Daunte Wright.

    Hello L

    If I accidentally stepped on the gas instead of the brake, and plowed into some people, I'd absolutely be charged with manslaughter..   Indeed, manslaughter is the crime of killing a human being without malice aforethought.  Is that not the circumstance here?

    We know that people can and do make mistakes. She did kill someone.

    So, I don't know.
    Id have to listen to all of the testimony.
