An internal NYPD judge ruled that Isnora should be fired and Police Chief Ray Kelly upheld that ruling. Kelly’s decision drew the ire of the department’s detectives union. According to NY1, they had this to say:

In a statement, the Detectives Endowment Association calls the decision to fire Isnora excessive and unprecedented.

It goes on to say in part: “Stripping a cop of his livelihood and an opportunity for a vested retirement is punishment reserved for cops who have…disgraced the shield, not for someone who has acted within the law.”

One of the officers who shot his gun on the night Sean Bell died, Michael Carey, was found not guilty of improperly firing his weapon. He will remain with the department.

New York City paid Bell’s family and his two injured friends $7 million as a result of a civil lawsuit, NY1 reports.
