On October 10th, a grand jury will decide on whether the shooting of a handcuffed man by police in South Carolina earlier this year was criminal or not. The man, 26-year-old Chadwick Boseman, was pulled over for a routine traffic stop for running a red light in Mount Pleasant on April 10th. An officer then allegedly searched Mr. Boseman’s car and found a small amount of marijuana. The officer then placed Boseman in handcuffs while awaiting transport to jail. While being taken into custody, another officer reportedly noticed that Boseman was reaching for something and then shot at him four times, killing him. The South Carolina chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and other civil rights groups have been vocal in calling for justice for Mr. Boseman and his family. The NAACP has called the shooting “a clear violation of policy and a complete disregard for the life of a Black man.” Now, a grand jury will decide whether the shooting of Mr. Boseman was criminal or not. The grand jury, which will consist of 18 members, will hear evidence and testimony and decide if the officer who shot Mr. Boseman should be indicted on any criminal charges such as manslaughter or murder or any other charges. Whatever the outcome of this hearing, it is clear that the community is looking for justice in this case and the Boseman family is hoping for a fair and unbiased decision from the grand jury. Hopefully, the grand jury will thoroughly examine all evidence, and establish the truth so that Mr. Boseman and his family can finally obtain the justice they deserve.
