The NAACP is condemning the lenient two-year sentence that was given early Friday to former Minnesota police officer Kim Potter, who killed 20-year-old Daunte Wright during a traffic stop on April, 21, 2021.

Potter, who convicted in December of first- and second-degree manslaughter charges, claimed that she made a mistake when she shot Wright to death. She said that she mistook her gun for her Taser.

The NAACP released the following statement Friday afternoon:

"The NAACP stands with Wright's family in collective outrage as we witness yet another injustice in Minnesota. 16 months in prison and 8 months on probation is a slap on the wrist.

"As scores of Black men sit in prison for the rest of their lives for committing non-violent crimes, Kim Potter will be a free woman in one year despite the fact that Daunte Wright's daughter will live the rest of her life without her father.

"This only magnifies what we already know - the system is broken.

"Our hearts and minds are with the Wright family today as they suffer another injustice."
