Police Brutality in NY: Here we Go Again

When will we say that enough is enough!!  New York has a serious problem and New York Officials need to be held accountable.  This young man was hours away from getting married and he was shot 21 times for no reason!! 

The police are claiming that the club was under surveillance.  If that was the case then wouldn’t they have some idea who and what they were monitoring?  They should have had some idea from the comings and goings of patrons of the club.  So how did this young brotha become the target?

According to the Washington Post, the police fired 50 shots at the victims car!! 50 Bullets!!  A veteran officer fired his weapon 31 times, emptying two full magazines!!

And Mayor Bloomberg had the nerve to issue the following statement:

“Although it is too early to draw conclusions about this morning’s shootings . . . we know that the NYPD officers on the scene had reason to believe that an altercation involving a firearm was about to happen and were trying to stop it”

I will say this once again; if the police were casing this club, they had to previously identified potential suspects.  What info did they have to suggest that these young men had guns and were in the process of starting a shoot out?  This is a bunch of BS!!  The NAACP an the National Urban League and the National Bar Association need to be all over this case.  Al Sharpton jumped on it right away.  These groups need to be backing him up.  Some media outlets have all ready started saying that Sharpton’s involvement is only agitating the issue; well we all should be on this to agitate the situation!!!!
