Civil Disobedience Across City Planned For Wednesday

Rev. Al Sharpton vowed to bring sections of the city to a stand still Wednesday with a series of pray-ins at six locations, including in front of the House of the Lord Church on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn.

The pray-ins are meant to protest the April 25 acquittals of three police detectives who killed the unarmed Sean Bell on his wedding day.

He expects the protesters, who will be down on their knees, to be arrested. "If you're not going to lock up the guilty in this town I guess you have to lock up the innocent," he said.

You know the killing of Sean Bell really wasn't a racial incident. This was clearly an over reaction by the police that led to tragedy. I hope that the civil trial might at least provide some pay back for the loss. My heart goes out to Mr. Bell's fiance and his family. The question remains what is going to be done in the future to prevent these things from happening again? We are becoming more and more like a police state with the main victims blacks, other people of color and immigrants.
