Posted Jan. 3, 2007 – For the next 50 days, the family of Sean Bell, the groom killed by New York City Police just hours before his wedding, will hold vigils outside a Queens police station to call attention to the lack of indictments in her son’s case.

Bell’s mother, Valerie, began the vigil at 4:56 a.m. on New Year’s Day and it will go around the clock for 50 days – one day for each bullet pumped into the car he was in. Bell’s family members and friends will also take turns standing “for peace and justice” during the coming days at the 103rd police precinct. A banner depicting the deceased, 50 illustrated bullet holes and the words “Never Again” is hung nearby.

“As a mother I will never get to hold my son,” said Valarie Bell. “And his father will have no more father-son conversations. It is the grace of God, who is our pillar, who allows us to get through this. ”

Sean Bell was killed by police on Nov 25, 2006 after leaving a Queens nightclub with two friends. The shooting is under investigation by Queens District Attorney Richard Brown.

The incident set off an uproar against the NYPD for its use of deadly force and undercover tactics.

Meanwhile, a 23-member grand jury has been selected to begin hearing evidence on the police killing of Sean Bell, The New York Daily News reported.

According to a legal source close to the case, over the next several weeks, the secret panel will hear testimony and review scientific evidence to determine if police committed unjustifiable homicide, assault or other violations of law in the shooting that left Bell dead and two of his friends seriously injured.
