Judge empathizes with Sean Bell protest and Al Sharpton

Well, not entirely. Kimberly writes: As you may recall, Al Sharpton was among civil rights leaders who, in May 2008, protested in NYC over the police shooting and killing of unarmed bridegroom Sean Bell.  The protest was successful in that it was big, non-violent, and had an impact on New York City traffic.
