In the first of our Hidden Victims series looking at how the criminal justice system impacts women of color, we hear the story of Greta Carter and the death of her son, Kevin Cooper.  Cooper was shot and killed by a Baltimore police officer after a routine call to his Southwest Baltimore home in August of 2006.  Carter tells the traumatic story of her son's death, and her emotional encounter years later with the officer who killed him.
