The infamous and untimely death of Sean Bell may soon be commemorated on a street in Queens. Members of the Queens city council are considering naming a street after Bell in remembrance of him. They will vote on renaming a section of Liverpool Street, ‘Sean Bell Way.’

Sean Bell was the unarmed man that was shot 50 times by police in 2006.

Three detectives were acquitted of all charges last year in the case. Michael Palladino, the president of the detectives union, is calling the proposal to rename the street for Bell “disgraceful.”

Michael Palladino is disgusting.

I really hope this street does get renamed.
