Since Derek Chauvin has been found guilty on all counts, there has been a list of persons who have been killed by police: Ma'Khia Bryant, 16 was swinging a knife during a fight with another person in Columbus; on Wednesday morning, a deputy fatally shot and killed a Black man while serving a search warrant in eastern North Carolina. An eyewitness said that Andrew Brown Jr. was trying to drive away, and that deputies fired at him multiple times; in the San Diego suburb of Escondido, police said an officer fatally shot a man who was apparently striking cars with a metal pole. On Thursday, a funeral will be held for Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black motorist who was shot during a traffic stop this month in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, just a few miles from the courthouse as the Chauvin trial unfolded. In Chicago last month thirteen year old Adam Toledo was fatally shot less than a sexond after he tossed a gun and began raising his hands as an officer had commanded. Kim Potter, a white police officer, has been charged with second-degree manslaughter in Wright's shooting. The former police chief said Potter mistakenly fired her handgun when she meant to use her Taser; Potter resigned from the force afterward. Anthony J. Thompson, Jr, 17, in Tennessee, was shot dead in a high school bathroom by officers responding to a report of a student with a gun. During a scuffle with officers in the restroom, the student's gun went off, and officers fired twice. On average, three people per day have been killed by law enforcement since testimony against Chauvin had begun.
