The entire nation is rejoicing after Chicago’s State Attorney’s Office decided to drop the murder charges against Carlisha Hood and her fourteen-year-old son. On Monday, June 26th, the State Attorney cited “the facts, evidence, and the law” as reasons for overturning the charges that came after the fatal shooting of Jeremy Brown, 32.
A video of the heated encounter between Hood and Brown at a restaurant has gone viral. It shows Brown threatening to “knock her out,” after which he proceeds to punch Hood repeatedly. In response, Hood’s son fired shots at Brown, who sustained a gunshot wound to the back. Brown then fled the restaurant, and the son proceeded to follow him and shoot more shots. Brown died shortly after from two gunshot wounds to the back.
Hood and her son turned themselves in to the police last week, and many have debated whether the charges were justified in light of the video. Fortunately, the charges were dropped, and video captured the moment Hood and her son were reunited.
Since then, Hood has filed a lawsuit against the city of Chicago and five police officers for being falsely arrested and maliciously prosecuted, which has caused emotional distress.
The public’s response to this news has been overwhelmingly positive. People have hailed the teenager a “hero” for protecting his mother, and many have sent out messages of support for Hood and her son. Others have called out the other men who were in the restaurant but failed to act. All in all, everyone is grateful for justice prevailing.
