The NYPD officers responsible for the barrage of 50-bullets that killed unarmed Sean Bell in 2006 will not face civil rights charges. The justice department made the ruling Tuesday citing insufficient evidence.
The justice department has since released a statement saying that the three officers responsible for the murder of Bell did not violate his civil rights and that they did not find enough evidence to prove that the officers had willfully acted to deny him the rights given by the constitution.
Bell was murdered in 2006 after leaving a New York Club following his bachelor party. Three police officers fired 50 shots into his vehicle killing beel the day of his wedding. All three officers were acquitted of assault, manslaughter and reckless endangerment. The family has filed a wrongfuldeath lawsuit and is seeking help from President Obama.
