Nas Lashes Out At NYPD

December 3, 2006

Queens native Nas has joined upstart rapper Papoose in speaking out against the New York Police Department after their controversial 50-shot barrage that left one man dead and two others wounded early Sunday morning in the Jamaica neighborhood of Queens, New York.

The trio of men were leaving a club when the driver, Sean Bell, 23, struck an unmarked police vehicle and then backed into a storefront before charging forward again — almost striking an undercover cop — and crashing into the vehicle once more, according to reports.

NYPD officials proceeded to fire 50 rounds of bullets into the car, a late-model Nissan Altima. The unarmed Bell, who was to be married later that day, was killed instantly, and his two passengers were both injured, one critically. Authorities claimed a fourth passenger was present at the time and in possession of a firearm. At press time, however, police were still investigating the matter and so far have questioned two men about their whereabouts that night.
