Al Sharpton: "This city is going to deal with the blood of Sean Bell"

NEW YORK - Hundreds of angry people marched through Harlem on Saturday after the Rev. Al Sharpton promised to "close this city down" to protest the acquittals of three police detectives in the 50-shot barrage that killed a groom on his wedding day and wounded two friends.

"We strategically know how to stop the city so people stand still and realize that you do not have the right to shoot down unarmed, innocent civilians," Sharpton told an overflow crowd of several hundred people at his National Action Network office in the historically black Manhattan neighborhood. "This city is going to deal with the blood of Sean Bell."

...

The rally at Sharpton's office was followed by a 20-block march down Malcolm X Boulevard and then across 125th Street, Harlem's main business thoroughfare, where some bystanders yelled out "Kill the police!"

...

"They never accused Sean Bell of doing anything. Then why is he dead?" Sharpton asked, his voice roaring with anger. Authorities "have shown now that they will not hold police accountable. Well, guess what? If you won't, we will!"

"Shut it down! Shut it down!" the crowd chanted, standing up and applauding wildly.

I haven't followed this case but I read Sean Bell was unarmed. What was the Police's defense here?

From text of the verdict statement read in court by Justice Arthur J. Cooperman:

... the confrontation that took place in front of the club was heated. The SUV owner, Fabio Coicou, gave the impression that he had a gun, causing at least one of the group to threaten to take it away from him.

And, the court finds, another threat was made by Joseph Guzman to retrieve a gun. At that point, nothing of a criminal nature had taken place. But, having witnessed that provocative confrontation between Mr. Coicou and the group, the undercover officers became concerned and followed the group around the corner to Liverpool Street.

Defendant Isnora approached the Nissan Altima into which Mr. Guzman and Sean Bell, two of the more active participants in the heated exchange, entered.

The Altima, which was driven by Mr. Bell, sped away from its parked position, struck Defendant Isnora and collided head on with the police van that had entered Liverpool Street. The Altima then went into reverse, backed up on to the

sidewalk, struck a gate and then went forward and to the right, striking the police van again. As this was happening, Defendant Isnora -- who testified in the grand jury -- observed Mr. Guzman, the front passenger, move his body as if he were reaching for a weapon. Defendant Isnora yelled, "Gun" and fired.

Other officers, indicted and unindicted, joined in from different locations on the street.

The court has found that the incident lasted just seconds.

The Rev intends to use this to demonstrate that he's still relevant.

omg this guy is making me sick. Honestly, I think he's the culprit of a lot of racism and crime in NYC.

Blacks are exempt from being racist..... just like Barack's preacher


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

This whole thing kind of stinks. But I'd have to say that I don't envy any of the police offers on the beat for a minute. It's a shitty world with too many damn guns out there. These guys put themselves on the line each and every day. They ain't no trigger happy yahoos - we'd see a lot more blood on the streets if that were the case. We ask them to put their life on the line for our safety. We ought to respect their right to defend themselves and their fellow officers. They had their day in court and were found not guilty by a jury of their peers. That's how the system works. So, there. I said it.

"They expect us to react in traditional ways; they will not get that," he said on his radio show in Harlem. "We are going to engage in economic withdrawal. We are going to engage in nonviolent civil disobedience."

That's a brilliant plan.

We all know civil disobedience always gets you what you want.
