Sean Bell’s family is still demanding justice. Two years undercover cops shot to death 23-year-old Sean Bell outside of a Queens, N.Y., nightclub on his wedding day eve, members of his family finally met with federal prosecutors. Bell died when cops fired on the unarmed groom and two friends in a haze of 50 bullets. The officers who fired on the three men were acquitted of criminal charges. “Justice was never served in this case,” family attorney Michael Hardy told Newsday. “We still want justice for Sean.” The family has been pressing the U.S. Justice Department to bring civil rights charges against the officers. Following their meeting with federal prosecutors on Tuesday, the family now believes that it is possible.  In a statement, the Rev. Al Sharpton said he believes today’s meeting is “a sign that the federal government has begun to seriously look into the egregious denial of the civil rights of Sean Bell, Joseph Guzman and Trent Benefield.” Bell’s family felt the same way. Bell’s family. “Sean had a life ahead of him,” fiancée Nicole Paultre Bell told reporters. “This has given us hope.”
