BrooklynBornThis blog started in my head when I listened in the 90's to friends who feared Brooklyn and newcomers who blogged about BK as if it barely existed before they arrived. Brooklyn as Tabula Rasa. My blog satisfies my need to hear and air feelings of B'klyn from the people whose life experience was born here. Also I hope to provide balance to some of the revisionist historical musings I've seen how Brooklyn and her residents used to be, we're still here. If we can all live as best possible while appreciating the past and neighbors we've inherited that would be great too.

50 Shots Not Reckless Enough?

This is video from the LIRR station roughly two blocks from the Sean Bell killing.

You'll see the result of at least one of the 50 bullets fired at a car
two blocks away.

These were the misdemeanor charges against the officers:
• Reckless endangerment
Firing a bullet that passed through the window of an occupied residence

• Reckless endangerment
For Discharing pistols on a street where others were present

How can there be a not guilty verdict on this?

Worse what this decision states as a result, is there was no mis-action, nothing wrong nothing to correct. Expect innocent men to continue being killed by police.

Ask yourself and others, how? why?
