Prof. Richard Frase Quoted by NYT on Arrest of Fmr. Police Officer Kimberly Potter in Daunte Wright Killing

In a New York Times article covering former Brooklyn Center Police Officer Kimberly A. Potter’s arrest on a second-degree manslaughter charge for the killing of Daunte Wright, Professor Richard Frase said the second-degree manslaughter statute is worded narrowly enough that the case might prove difficult for prosecutors to prove, noting that it requires them to show that Ms. Potter consciously took a chance of “causing death or great bodily harm.”
