Valerie Bell, whose son Sean was killed in a hail of 50 police bullets nearly nine years ago, recently saw his 8-year-old daughter cover her face at the sight of cops.
“We were at church on Sunday and police officers came into our church,” Bell said Tuesday. “My granddaughter when she saw them she covered her face. I was like, ‘Wow, maybe she’s afraid of them.’”
Bell, who broke down in tears while retelling the story, is one of 18 family members of people killed by cops who penned a letter to Gov. Cuomo.
The letter dated Feb. 24 and obtained by the Daily News urges him to “enact an executive order to assign a special prosecutor to all cases of police killings moving forward.”
