N.Y. Police Acquittal Sparks Anger

A judge in New York has found three NYPD officers not guilty in the shooting death of Sean Bell. Bell was leaving his bachelor party when the officers fired more than 50 shots at him and his friends. Bell supporters say he was shot because he was black, and the police officers say they thought he was armed.
