Another tragic incident of police brutality happened on the night of November 25, 2006. Sean Bell was having his bachelor party at a strip club, which the strip club happened to be in the process of being investigated by a group of undercover officers. One of the officers thought that he heard Bell’s friends say that he had a gun. As Bell and his friends were leaving they were pulled over by police. Bell began to drive off and as a result officers began to spray their car with bullets hitting the car at least fifty times, killing Bell. None of the officers were convicted of any charges.
