Oh no, I can hear the cries of NO JUSTICE,NO PEACE... The NAACP,Al Sharpton,The Rainbow Coalition (Jesse Jacksons meal ticket),S0-called community leaders demanding press conferences,officers being fired or put in jail. But in the end when the NYC hands out the hush money they will go back behind the wood work like roaches when the lights come on,all the while the black on black killings go on. Why, because there is no money to be made off of them...OK folks let the arrows fly, I am ready.
