well, african american community along with Jesse Jackson & Al Sharpton are outraged over the killing of "Sean Bell" last saturday morning before he was to get married that same day.
This incident started Racial tension in the City. Also, cops on both sides of the Hudson River yesterday to be on alert after getting threats from gang members(Crips and Bloods) vowing to kill police officers in retaliation for last Saturday's shooting of an unarmed Queens man(Sean Bell).
I was not there when the shooting took place. However, I do think that the undercover officers did not just start shooting for no reasons. Have to wait till the investigation is completed.
I did find this background info of the suspects and Sean Bell from the New York Post.
"Bell had been arrested three times in the past: twice for drugs and one on a gun rap in a case that was sealed. Guzman has been busted nine times, including for armed robbery. He spent two stretches in state prison in the '90s. Benefield has a sealed record as a juvenile for gun possession and robbery."
