50 bullets

That's what Sean Bell died from. Three detectives blasted away at an innocent man on his wedding day.

Now, I understand a police officer's need to protect himself, especially if he suspects someone is armed. But when someone hears the police yell "GET ON THE GROUND NOW!" and "HANDS WHERE I CAN SEE THEM!" at the same time, what he hears is "
GHEATNODNSTWHHEEGRRIOCUANNDSNTOHWEM!!"

And apparently, the police are trained to empty their clips into someone, rather than take a shot or two to disarm, then re
ëvaluate the situation. One of them fired 11 shots. Another an impressive 31 shots.

When the detectives were acquitted of all charges, they praised their Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. "This is the start of my life back," said the one who shot only 8 times.

Tell that to Bell.
