My Legal Rant - Sean Bell Case

. Apr 26, 2008

As a law student, I come across many cases that cry out injustice, but it seems that even the totality of these cases doesn't come near the atrocity behind the acquittal of the three cops who were personally responsible for the death of Sean Bell. Just to hear that 50 bullets were fired on one individual in a neighborhood is in itself cause for alarm, a cause that should unite the community to take action and hold these individuals accountable. And, yet, nothing but "internal procedure" and possibly a civil suit will be done to rectify this situation. As someone who will soon join the legal field, I hang my head in shame and express my deepest sympathy to those who have been personally affected by this incredible injustice.
