City Council Approves Naming Street After Sean Bell
A Queens city council has opted to name a street after Sean Bell, the unarmed man shot and killed by police with 50 bullets.
As previously reported, the council was considering renaming a section of Liverpool Street, ‘Sean Bell Way' and with today's vote, three blocks of Liverpool Street in Queens, where he was shot and killed on his wedding day, will don the name.
The action was approved despite protest from people like the president of the detectives union, Michael Palladino, who called the proposal "disgraceful.”
