Now in 2020 Cariol Horne has been pushing for change with a new law, Cariol Horne’s Law, to help police officers that are doing the right thing, trying to make a difference and really trying to protect and serve while not being punished for it.

And it looks like that change that has been a long time coming as well as justice for Cariol Horne is going to come.

The Buffalo city council is asking the New York state attorney general to investigate Cariol Horne’s case.
