When a police officer shot Daunte Wright to death in a Minneapolis suburb last week, the tragedy plunged many Black Americans into a familiar state of grief and rage. Wright, 20, became the latest Black person to die during an encounter with the police. The officer, who has since resigned, reportedly thought she was firing a Taser, not her gun. She's been charged with second-degree manslaughter. Wright died about 10 miles from where former police officer Derek Chauvin is on trial for murdering George Floyd.
