No justice for Sean Bell

 
The police officers that were involved in the murder of Sean Bell have once again avoided prosecution. The U.S. Attorney General says that the case will not move forward due to insufficient evidence.
"Under the applicable federal criminal civil rights laws, prosecutors must establish, beyond a reasonable doubt, that a law enforcement officer willfully deprived an individual of a constitutional right, meaning with the deliberate and specific intent to do something the law forbids. This is the highest standard of intent imposed by law and is different and higher than the intent standard under the relevant state statutes," the Justice Department said.
5 undercover police officers fired 50 shots at Bell and his two friends outside a Jamaica strip club in November 2006, on what was to be Bell's wedding day. Police claimed that one man was armed, but a weapon was never recovered.
The family has filed a wrongful death suit against the NYPD.

The music - layered sonic arrangements of speaker-rattling percussion bombs, horns and keyboards- is a human bobble-head soundtrack. No
