Marie Rose Dorismond, whose son, Patrick, 26, was killed by undercover New York City Police narcotics detective Anthony Vasquez during a drug buy-and-bust operation on March 16, 2000 holds the childhood photos she keeps of her son in her wallet in the home of a family member in East Flatbush, Brooklyn after a 27-hour Greyhound bus ride from her home in Port St. Lucie, Florida on November 30, 2006. She has come back to the city to attend the funeral of Sean Bell, 23, who was killed last week by New York City police officers. Vasquez was acquitted of all charges related to the killing of Dorismond's son.
The photos are of Patrick when he was 7, left, and 5-year-old.
