OK, so you remember Sean Bell, right? You know; black guy; bachelor party; strip club; night before his wedding; shot fifty times by NYPD cops; dead; cops got off. Yep, you remember him right? Yeah, shit like that’s easy to forget.
So yeah, federal prosecutors refused to pursue a civil rights lawsuit in February. Yeah I know, typical bullshit, right? Soanywhichaways, checkout this latest development concerning Sean Bell’s estate via New York Post:
A cop involved in the fatal shooting of Sean Bell on his wedding day is now suing the dead man’s estate — claiming Bell drunkenly assaulted and badly injured him with a car right before the hail of police gunfire that brought the unarmed man down.
Police Officer Michael Carey’s lawsuit says Bell was boozed-up when he got behind the wheel of the car after his bachelor party on Nov. 25, 2006, and also claims the doomed groom failed to wear glasses or contact lenses despite having poor eyesight.
Carey’s allegations are contained in a Brooklyn federal counter-claim filed last week in response to a wrongful-death lawsuit being pursued by Bell’s fiancée, Nicole Paultre Bell, against him and the other four cops involved.
“[Officer Carey] suffered serious leg injury when [Bell] crashed into the vehicle he was riding in before Officer Carey ever drew his gun and fired a shot,” said Carey’s lawyer, Richard Signorelli.I don’t know about you, but I suddenly have a serious case of O’shea Jackson, which much like turrets makes me wanna unconditionally scream fuck the police. This dick-eater disrespects Bell’s family with a frivolous counter-suit? I’m guessing next they’ll send the family a bill to cover the cost of the 50 bullets that hit Bell.
A back injury? Bitch please! Not only was this prick not indicted, he was the first witness called for the police. He also testified to firing three rounds without identifying himself as a police officer as well. In case you didn’t know, Sean Bell was a black man, and the cop in question is white. Yeah, that’s him in the pic above.
Talk about pissin’ on a man’s grave.
