And the Verdict is......
3 Police officers in the Sean Bell NYC shooting case were aqcuitted today. WTF! These three cops gun down an unarmed man to a tune of 50 bullets fired just before his wedding night two years ago and they get away clean free not even a couple weeks of community service...o wait...they are cops, it's part of their job duty to service the community!
Heres the link to the story if you have been under a rock.
I really want to say that I can't believe this but...really I can. That's part of the sad reality we live in where gas prices are bout to hit 4 dollars and cops shoot people innocent people like a scene from Grand Theft Auto. I really never have trusted the judicial system or the LAPD, NYPD, or whatever two letters go in front of your city PD.....for reason's just like this. I mean, how do you shoot an unarmed man more than 50 times, one officer let off 31 shots! dAMN! The Police Department is one of the largest organized gangs going and they have connections in all the right places. The reasoning behind the verdict was that the cops had a better story than the victims associates who were wounded in the fatal shooting. One of Bell's homies was an ex convict, so I'm sure the judge and the jury used that as an automatic reason for wrong doing on the victim's part. But wow.....you shoot an unarmed man 50 times and you get aqcuitted???
I think the great jherri curl wearing hip hop poet O Shea Jackson said it best.....
