So sad to hear.
aw ~ I suppose he was about to get married too cuz of the bachelor party!
I swear, sometimes police always abuse their power and
whatever they do they never get in trouble..not enough anyways.

50 times is way too much.

What the hell, just suspended from the force? They murdered a innocent man. Just because they are the police and suspected he had a gun, which they had no evidence of which makes it even worse, doesn't mean they can get away with it. They should be put in prison at the very least.

EDIT: I googled Sean Bell. Heres some links at anyone wanting proof:

Hmm, I agree it is wrong but here's my 2 cents though What was he doing at a strip club in a shady neighborhood?! Not only that he came out of that strip club (which was in one of the worst parts of the neighborhood) at 4 AM in the morning. Why couldn't he gone to a nicer one in a nice neighborhood?! No offense but being in that type of neighborhood later at night you're basically just asking for trouble. Am I saying the police did what was right!!? hell nah whatever the media says it was based on race because would they do the same thing to a white guy!? again hell no!! My other point is is that this could of been easily prevented if they would of been smarter about their surroundings and not go to places where trouble lurks!! Nothing good comes out of leaving the strip club at the wee hours of the morning in a bad part of the neighborhood. There was another case with an NBA player that did this and ended up getting in trouble!

They didn't just shot him once they shot him 50 times! I'll understand ONCE but not 50. Shit, I would run too if secret agents or whatever they were came up to me... I'm not sure if he did try to run them over or not. BUt they should of gave warning shots and maybe 5 shots. not 10x that!

From what I understand, it was actually on the day of his wedding. Sad thing to see. I can understand that cops need to protect themselves too; but shooting haphazardly based on a suspicion is something that just shouldn't happen.

I didn't hear about the bit about him trying to run over one of the officers though...
