Lady Justice, from the Seven Virtues, by Giotto, 1306.
In Queens in November 2006, three police officers shot fifty bullets into a car occupied by three unarmed young men. One policeman emptied his gun and reloaded. Sean Bell died from his wounds the night before his wedding. Today a judge cleared the officers of all charges of manslaughter and reckless endangerment.
Apparently it's all right to kill people in New York City.
