Al Sharpton and Sean Bell’s Widow, Nicole Paultre-Bell spoke to the press after being jailed for civil disobedience during protests of the Sean Bell verdict. Sharpton said that the Sean Bell verdict protests had become a “Sean Bell movement.”

A recent poll says a majority of New York City voters disagree with the acquittal of three police who killed Sean Bell.
