25th April 2008

The wail that came up from the crowd was as if they heard that Sean Bell had died again. “No!” they shouted, while dozens of people, wearing Bell’s face on hats, T-shirts and buttons, burst into sobs. The scene unfolded outside the courthouse Friday as three police officers were cleared of all charges in the 2006 shooting of Bell, who died in a hail of 50 bullets on his wedding day.
Hundreds of friends of Bell and others wanted vindication for what they called a racially motivated shooting, and they reacted with tears and explosive anger to the officers’ acquittal.
