Sean Bell

This is an outrage to the American justice system.

I don’t care if it was an accident, a mistake, or what. If you are responsible for something, you should be appropriately held responsible. If I fall asleep at the wheel and drive into oncoming traffic, I am still responsible for my actions of harming others. The same is true for the cops who got off, after killing Sean Bell 50 times over. They fired the shots and should be held responsible for the direct result of their actions. This is not a war zone, and the rule of law supposedly still applies in the US. If it was an accident, fine. They still are guilty of manslaughter, and should be in jail for killing someone.

Nobody is above the law, and criminal negligence is (and ought to be) actionable. I hope to write more on this soon.
