50 Shots = Free Pass?

The three detectives involved in the Sean Bell case were acquitted of ALL charges today. To recap, Sean was shot and killed by police outside of a Queens, NY club–after his bachelor party. He was to be married the next day. Wow, shooting unarmed men over 50-times and you get a pass? Shocked? Yes. Surprised? No. I guess New York City thought that after Diallo and Louima, they were done giving out ‘guilty’ charges. Federal charges may still be on the horizon. {CNN}

    basically, no one is being held accountable for sean bell’s death. in a society where we have people arrested and convicted of crimes against animals (animal cops, anyone?)what does that say about the value this young man’s life?
