Cop Shoots Man After Mistaking her Sidearm for a Taser

Duante Wright April 11, 2021. Police stop him for minor traffic violations (expired tags / air freshener violation, driving while black), run his ID find warrants for a misdemeanor proceed with arrest. After a small amount of resistance officer fuckup draws her gun, shouts “taser, taser, taser” and proceeds to shoot and kill this young man. This officer had 20+ years experience on the force, was a trainer and had received awards for competency.

If this mistake is being made by an officer with years of experience, who trains other cops, it is further evidence of how broken policing is. Until they prove they can be responsible cops should no longer be trusted with firearms. Time and again they have shown reckless disregard for basic firearm handling and use.
