The three police officers indicted for the killing of Sean Bell pleaded not guilty Monday after surrendering at the Queens County Courthouse. Bell was killed in November on his wedding day when police fired 50 shots at a car carrying him and two friends. All three men were unarmed.
Detectives Michael Oliver and Gescard Isnora are each charged with first and second-degree manslaughter for Bell's death. They've also been charged separately with first and second-degree assault on the two surviving victims. They each face up to twenty-five years in prison. Bail was set at $250,000 bond or $100,000 cash. Both are free pending trial after the Detectives" Endowment Association posted bail for each.
The third officer, Detective Marc Cooper, was charged with second-degree reckless endangerment. He was released on his own recognizance. Oliver fired 31 of the shots; Isnora, eleven shots, and Cooper four shots. Cooper and Isnora are black; Oliver is white. Two other officers involved in the shooting were not indicted.
Sean Bell's family and friends addressed the media after the arraignment. Among those to speak were:
Nicole Paultre-Bell, Sean Bell's fiancee.
Valerie Bell, Sean Bell's mother.
Joseph Guzman, who survived the police shooting.
Peter St. George Davis, Bell family lawyer.
Rev. Al Sharpton, civil rights leader.

I'm not sure that I completely agree with this. I personally don't like guns or the whole concept of guns, however I do think that we have to recognise that it is not guns that kill people. People kill people. Whether that be with a gun, a knife, or any other weapon, I do think that killers are predisposed to killing, and if this is in their make-up their weapon of choice is irrelavant.

I do think that we have to be careful when classifying people based on characteristics such as this. Just like with anything else, there will always be people who will do the 'wrong' thing. I'd like to believe that these people are a minority in any club, social group, religion, or whatever the case may be.

That may seem a little nieve, but I would like to hope that this world has some goodness left in it, and we aren't just leaving this world to our children filled with predisposed ideals of hatred.

Made for an incredibly intersting read though... It certainly got me thinking.

jd's rose; I believe it is people with guns that kill people. Thank you for your interesting comments, something worth reading for a change. However, arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.
Didn't fall for your three card trick and comment on your most recent post [Open letter].nice to hear from you.

Anon he was a HUMAN BEING for pity's sake, can you be so uncaring to ask such a question?

Your a piece of shit said...Why do in your comments.

Well its like this; piece of shit person. Firstly why do you call yourself a piece of shit and demean yourself, are you into self flagellation, obviously not the full quid are you, it would seem there is little proving to be done, but a visit to your friendly psychiatrist might help to unravel what is left in your brain.
Have a pleasant day. I really do feel so sorry for you.

jd rose A 3ct is loosely a term used when confronted with a unfamiliar sit and using it as an escape clause to extract ones ass from any perceived strife in the offing. About as clear as mud.
Goodnight. vest.

I heard that story on the radio, then I saw it on the news at night, it is very f*ed up if you ask me. In England, it's just as bad. A kid, 15, black, was shot in the face, in his bed, he was asleep!!! and you know what the cops said, it is a case of mistaken identity. A f*cking case of mistaken identity????!!!! How does that make it alright for the family!!!??? Could not they arrest him, he was asleep, in his bed!!!
I'm done, I'm screeching like a harpy.

Keshie: Authorities too lenient and undermined by greed, lax laws, undisciplined students, something for nothing, laziness pays off now attitude. spare the rod (cane) and spoil the child? maybe, but it all adds up to total anarchy.
but we are generally better off than 75 years ago.
Most problems occur when a challenged opinion or threat is countered by an unqualified antagonistic reply.
Disagreement is the shortest distance between two minds, and bad words and ear-holes never agree.
