Bloomberg's Other Message Yesterday

Mike Bloomberg went out to two predominantly black churches in Queens yesterday to talk about schools, and to make the case that his reforms are both effective and necessary.

While he was there, he also addressed another issue of concern to many of his black constituents: the police shooting death of Sean Bell.

Here he is assuring his audience at Mount Moriah AME Church in St. Albans, Queens, that he’s not sure what happened that night, but that he has faith in the Queens District Attorney who is investigating it.
