San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin charged a former police officer with homicide last year. This was a milestone in a country where police are so rarely charged. In this installment of The Progressive Prosecutor, we take a look at why so many families are still waiting for justice.

"To this day, we are still struggling to raise up his name."

"The Progressive Prosecutor" is a series looking at San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin's first year in office. Find the rest of the stories in the series here.
