In Milwaukee, a 15-year-old attempted to carjack law student Claude Motley and shot him in the face, according to a PBS description. Through multiple surgeries and catastrophic health care bills, the effects of gun violence upends Claude’s life. Yet he still finds himself torn between punishment for the young man and the injustice of mass incarceration for Black men and boys. Can he find mercy in his heart for his attacker?
