Amadou Diallo was a 22-year-old West African immigrant who lived in the Bronx. He studied English and Computer Science in Singapore and Thailand before coming to America. A devout Muslim, he worked twelve hours a day selling videos to earn enough money to finish his bachelor's degree. On February 4, 1999, an unarmed Amadou Diallo was killed by members of the NYPD's Special Crime Unit. They thought he was a serial rapist they'd been looking for, and they said they thought he was reaching for a gun. They fired 41 bullets, hitting him 19 times.
