Botham Jean a 26 year old St Lucian was shot and killed in his apartment by a police officer who "mistakenly" thought he was an intruder in her apartment. He was a successful professional, a devout Christian, an overall joy to be around. The circumstances surrounding his death are controversial and bring to light a bigger conversation of police corruption, brutality and racism. In this episode we talk about the tragic murder of our countryman and former school mate, and share our perspectives.
Rest in Peace Botham
