    What Does The NYPD Have To Do To Be Accountable?

    I suspect that this will not end well.

    NEW YORK - Three detectives were acquitted of all charges Friday in the 50-shot killing of an unarmed groom-to-be on his wedding day, a case that put the NYPD at the center of another dispute involving allegations of excessive firepower.

    Justice Arthur Cooperman delivered the verdict in a Queens courtroom packed with spectators, including victim Sean Bell's fiancee and parents, and at least 200 people gathered outside the building.

    Yahoo News.

    Ah.  Brilliant!

    I'm not sure if Sean Bell had priors or not.
    He might have been drunk.
    They might have been in a bad part of town.
    But no way does any unarmed person deserve to be shot 50 times and the perpetrators, police or not, do not go to jail, at least not in the America that I know.

    Wow.  We all should be SO proud.

    Sigh.  I guess I'll have to go back to stockpiling food, water, and ammo.  Actually, strike that ammo part.  But no doubt some people are thinking that way today.

    Note to self: for the love of God, avoid the police.  You have a daughter to feed.
