First of all, Baldwin story isn't finished yet. Second of all, (without knowing details of either case), there could be a major difference in the level of negligence.

Jail time, how much?
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/jury-finds-kim-potter-guilty-in-death-of-daunte-wright/ar-AAS5YiL?ocid=msedgntp
Here's my perspective.

It is sometimes the job of a police officer to take out their gun and shoot someone. They are expected to size up situations, often very chaotic, potentially life-threatening situations, in a split second and make a decision if they should shoot or not. That being the case, while they should have absolute accountability and full training, their poor decisions, made in crazy situations, should NEVER be equated to a common criminal who never had the business to have a gun in the first place.

I don't think it's fair that if I make a mistake doing my job, I get reprimanded, while if a man who puts his life in danger to protect me makes a mistake, they go to jail for life. Obviously, their mistakes have much bigger ramifications, but there still should be a level of leniency in the picture.

At the end of the day she put herself into a position where an error costs a life. Where things get messier is how there was testimony from other officers and the former chief of police that according to protocol she would have been justified had she intended to use the gun. The DA argued that this was police protecting their own as a family.

The jury rejected that argument.

Yes, they accepted the prosecutors' argument that it was the police protecting their own.

If I understand correctly, they accepted the argument she should have not used the taser let alone a gun in that situation.

Sometimes the remedy for that is civil, not criminal.

That sounds like a nicer way of phrasing the "white cop can't shoot a black man" argument.

In all seriousness, are you saying this is your interpretation of the guilty verdict? Or has has someone on the jury spoken out and this is your understanding of what they said?

Fox News: Kim Potter made a mistake. Her jury did not, but maybe the law needs to be reviewed.

Skimming through that it seems he's saying the law should be what Rekieta laid out in the video I posted above is actually the law in MN.

(note to @CountValentine: contrary to what your painting of me probably is, clicking that link was my first time in a long time looking at Fox News...)

All the jury can do is go by the instructions they are given.
Does she deserve jail time, I am not sure.

From the jury instructions:
"A person acts recklessly if under the totality of the circumstances she commits a conscious or intentional act in connection with the handling or use of the firearm..."
