Michelle Kenney, mother of Antwon Rose II, speaks with ESSENCE about missing her son, protecting him in life and after death, and creating a future where police officers don't get away with shooting Black children in the back.
On the same day that Antwon Rose's family reached a settlement, a US District Court judge dismissed their lawsuit with prejudice.
Pittsburgh Public Schools Superintendent Anthony Hamlet said that while students have the right to protest, they must do so with parental permission or receive an unexcused absence or tardy.
Rosfeld shot Antwon three times, in his arm, back, and face.
Their lawsuit claims that East Pittsburgh would not have hired Rosfeld if the concerning incidents during officer Michael Rosfeld's employment at the university had been properly disclosed.
The family claims that East Pittsburgh failed to "properly train" its officers, resulting in the 17-year-old's death.
