The acquittal of the detectives in the Sean Bell debacle leaves me more than a little gobsmacked this morning.  You can't just shoot up a car.  Maybe if, you know, they have a nuclear weapon.  Or if they've led police on a ten-hour wild goose chase that endangered the lives of others.  But otherwise, using your firearm to stop a moving vehicle for any reason seems a bit extreme, I don't care what badge you wear.  Get the license plate number.  Call it in.  That's why God made helicopters.  

The judge couldn't have at least tossed the Reckless Endangerment at them??  They fired 50 shots into one car with three people!  The math alone should suggest something was not quite right here!
