The Diallo Incident One Officers Perspective In the quiet post-midnight hours of February 4 1999 41 shots rang out in the entry vestibule of a South Bronx apartment house Within seconds a young man laid dead four policemen standing over his lifeless body A 22-year-old immigrant from West Africa was the unfortunate victim The police officers four white men from the New York City Police Departments Street Crimes Unit SCU And almost before daylight could illumine the citys vast tract of high-rise businesses and low-rise brownstones there came the first calls of Police Brutality Racism even Murder But were these four officers who together fired 41 shots at an unarmed young man indeed guilty as charged Or was this shooting as the officers would attempt to explain a tragedy of the greatest possible human dimensions Did the media ask the right questions and act in a responsible manner Did the local politicians act in a responsible manner And were they inappropriate actions or were they appropriate for the situation Has society changed that much Do we society take the word of the medias insight and follow people who thrive on media attention Who are the real prosecutors Who makes the decision to condemn the actions of four police officers Do we prosecute the officers of a police department who were trained to do what they did Has anyone of these so-called experts ever looked into the past situations of men and women in the police department And then ask the question Why did they the police shoot that unarmed man Has the police department trained the police officers the proper way Or will the police departments around the country now train police officers to become less aggressive giving way for an officer to worry about jail time and the loss of his financial status Will this lead the police to turn a blind-eye
