Kieran Gipson: Protesting Authority

I really liked being able to do this silent protest. We really got to express our thoughts in just something simple. We protested the police's ability to do whatever they want to the regular people. Who are supposed to make sure that the police follow the rules and if they exist then where are they when this is happening. These t-shirts felt really special since we actually made them ourselves, by hand. Walking down the street was pretty cool since I'm sure as people saw the shirt then they started to think about what had happened to Sean Bell and how the cops were able to get away with it. No one may have said anything, but I'm sure that they were thinking and in the end that's what really matters.

Yes! The importance is that they thought about it. As a society, we tend to forget a lot or ignore that which makes us uneasy. Any way you can prevent people from forgetting is great!

I agree with you, it is great for all of us to remember the victim: Sean Bell. As we go through our daily life it is important to remember and take a stand against police brutality.
