New York City has agreed to pay over $7 million to the family and associates of Sean Bell after he was fatally shot in 2006 by 50 bullets. 50 bullets is, pardon the pun, overkill, isn’t it?
"The Sean Bell shooting highlighted the complexities our dedicated officers must face each day. The City regrets the loss of life in this tragic case, and we share our deepest condolences with the Bell family," Corporation Counsel Michael A. Cardozo said in a statement after the deal was announced.
Is this a fair coda to a sad story?
