my mom just called me from LA to warn me that all of the officers that killed Sean Bell were just acquitted (of all charges- the most minor of which was reckless endangerment).
apparently she remembers what happened
in Los Angeles
sixteen years ago
when the officers were acquitted
of beating Rodney King.
prayerfully, prayerfully. PRAYERFULLY. we won't see the same resounding nightmare reaction of outrage as was seen during the Los Angeles uprising.
