Sean Bell’s and Ramarley Graham's Mothers Speak out on Zimmerman’s verdict

“When I heard the verdict I was lost for words. I couldn’t believe,” said Valarie Bell, mother of the late Sean Bell who was unharmed and killed at his bachelor party in South Jamaica, Queens by undercover NYPD officers in November of 2006. They fired fifty bullets at Bell, claiming that someone from his group had a fireharm. No gun was found and his police shooters were found not guilty of various charges including manslaughter and reckless endangerment. Bell’s mother said she couldn’t watch Zimmerman’s trial because it brought back too many memories of her son.
