In July, a Minnesota police offer fatally shot a man named Philando Castile during a traffic stop, while his fiancée looked on helplessly and streamed the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook. The incident, like many before and after it, sparked weeks of protest on a national scale. We are used to incidents like this not leading to any justice, with the cop who pulled the trigger often walking free without even getting charged.
But this past week, news broke that the officer, Jeronimo Yanez, would indeed be getting charged. The lawyer for Castile’s family, Glenda Hatchett (also known as Judge Hatchett), alluded in press conference that there is some hope for justice in this case.
