yeah, it's ridiculous. the officers said that sean bell or one of his friends said something to the effect of "i need to go get my gun" and that's why they opened fire, but...meh. and the question of whether or not it's a race issue is interesting, because two of the officers were black. ugggh.
my writing professor wrote a *beautiful* poem about it, though!
The wind of change will blow, And another dance will start. And I'll finally get the point Like an arrow to my heart.
