“Justice will be served” – Officers charged in violent arrest


(KSHB)  It’s been a tough year for Brianna Hill’s family.

“We miss Brianna, we really do,” says Rena Childs, Hill’s aunt.

They still are grieving the loss of Hill, a transgender woman, after her death in an October 2019 shooting. On Saturday, they reflected on another incident months prior that was captured on video.

On May 24, 2019, Kansas City, Missouri, officers responded to a disturbance outside a beauty supply store when they got into an altercation with Hill.

On Friday, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced charges against KCPD Officers Matthew Brummet and Charles Prichard after a grand jury hearing. Hill’s family said justice was not entirely served.
