Sherman Park Community Reacts to Former Officer Being Charged

CBS 58's visited the Sherman Park Neighborhood on Thursday for reaction to this latest development.

Some people in the community said the decision is one step closer to healing Sherman Park.

The Sherman Park Community Association meets with residents weekly, and has met with the Smith family on several occasions.

They said they are glad that a decision was made today, but that the unrest from a few months ago shows that there are other issues in this area that need to be addressed.

Some local businesses that were burned down during the unrest are up and running, but the group said Sherman Park as a whole has a long way to go.

The Sherman Park Community Association said they plan to continue meeting with families and working on solutions to help the community heal.
