50 Shots: Sean Bell

In November of 2006 Sean Bell was shot and killed by NY detectives.
Recently three police officers who were indicted were acquitted.

Al Sharpton is leading protests calling for justice.
While I understand the need for Obama to distance himself from “angry black men,” his silence at injustice disturbs me.

This excellent video from Max Blumenthal takes us to the streets of Queens, where New Yorkers vent their rage against the Sean Bell verdict.
