Any mother raising sons prays to get through that difficult period from 14 or 15 to full maturity. This exemplar American family almost made it.
But local corruption put a monster in its path: the corrupt Datre family, and the cops they owned. How could a grand jury not return a true bill for mot murder but manslaughter if the fix was not in or the jury was not dominated by racists?
Why should one stupid outburst of anger negate justice for a young man who risked his life to apprehend a mugger? Was this testimony included about William's last day?
Very thought provoking.
