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.
