I read two papers today – the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times.  You remember the young man, Sean Bell who was thought to have a gun along with his other two unarmed friends (weapons were never located).  Three New York City armed officers opened fire on Bell and his car mates – 50 rounds worth.  One officer took the time to unload and load; he fired the most shots, 31.  Of course, I don’t know all the facts but isn’t 50 rounds excessive?  Shouldn’t there be some culpability since no weapon was found?  Is something broken here?
