In the end, Eric Holder’s Department of Justice will not file civil rights charges against George Zimmerman.
The Department of Justice will not be filing charges against George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Try as they might to to charge Zimmerman in this politically motivated sham of a DOJ investigation, it turns out they had nothing. Zimmerman was originally charged with the first degree murder of Trayvon Martin as many irresponsible individuals stated it was racially motivated and a hate crime. The “white” Hispanic killed a black teen. Even though the feds had intimated that there would be no charges filed, federal officials have insisted their civil-rights probe would be thorough and complete as it went on for nearly three years. After all is said and done, after the liberal MSM and Obama/Holder Justice Department tried to railroad Zimmerman, he walks away with an acquittal and no civil rights charges. That usually occurs when one kills another in a self defense shooting. As Legal Insurrection opined, “This decision comes as no surprise to anyone familiar with the actual facts of the case.” Imagine that Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, NBPP, NAACP and the rest of the race-baiters, George Zimmerman did not violate Trayvon Martin’s civil rights or kill him because of his color.
Local prosecutors initially did not feel there was enough evidence to prosecute the case. They were replaced and a politically motivated prosecution was conducted to get their pound of flesh from George Zimmerman. The murder prosecution failed, not the federal investigation into civil rights charges against Zimmerman has failed. One has to wonder if a civil law suit is next? However, I would have to agree with Robert Zimmerman, a wrongful death trial, could be very troubling to the family of Trayvon Martin and could lead to very unpleasant facts that were never a part of the criminal trial.
Justice Department officials met with Martin’s family today, and were told that they will not be filing charges against George Zimmerman, who shot the 17-year-old after a confrontation in 2012. Thursday marks three years to the day since Martin was killed.
Federal prosecutors concluded there is not sufficient evidence to prove Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman in Sanford, Fla., intentionally violated Martin’s civil rights.
“Although the department has determined that this matter cannot be prosecuted federally, it is important to remember that this incident resulted in the tragic loss of a teenager’s life,” Acting Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta of the Civil Rights Division said. “Our decision not to pursue federal charges does not condone the shooting that resulted in the death of Trayvon Martin and is based solely on the high legal standard applicable to these cases.” The case sparked intense discussions over race in America because Martin was walking to his home with only Skittles and an iced tea in his hands.
Florida prosecutors tried to convict Zimmerman of state-level murder and manslaughter charges, but in July 2013 a jury acquitted him, saying prosecutors didn’t have enough evidence to prove their case.
Shortly after Zimmerman’s acquittal in state court on July 13, 2013, federal investigators resumed active investigation. Federal investigators reviewed all of the material and evidence generated by the state of Florida in connection with its investigation and prosecution of Zimmerman, including witness statements, crime scene evidence, cell phone data, ballistics reports, reconstruction analysis, medical and autopsy reports, depositions, and the trial record. Federal investigators also independently conducted 75 witness interviews and obtained and reviewed the contents of relevant electronic devices. The investigation included an examination of police reports and additional evidence that was generated related to encounters Zimmerman has had with law enforcement in Florida since the state trial acquittal. In addition, federal authorities retained an independent biomechanical expert who assessed Zimmerman’s descriptions of the struggle and the shooting.
The federal investigation sought to determine whether the evidence of the events that led to Martin’s death were sufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman’s actions violated the federal criminal civil rights statutes, specifically Section 3631 of Title 42 of the U.S. Code or Section 249 of Title 18 of the U.S. Code, as well as other relevant federal criminal statutes. Section 3631 criminalizes willfully using force or threat of force to interfere with a person’s federally protected housing rights on account of that person’s race or color. Section 249 criminalizes willfully causing bodily injury to a person because of that person’s actual or perceived race. Courts define “willfully” to require proof that a defendant knew his acts were unlawful, and committed those acts in open defiance of the law. It is one of the highest standards of intent imposed by law.
The federal investigation examined whether Zimmerman violated civil rights statutes at any point during his interaction with Martin, from their initial encounter through the fatal shooting. This included investigating whether there is evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman violated Section 3631 by approaching Martin in a threatening manner before the fatal shooting because of Martin’s race and because he was using the residential neighborhood. Investigators also looked at whether there is evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman violated Section 3631 or Section 249, by using force against Martin either during their struggle or when shooting Martin, because of Martin’s race.
“Although the department has determined that this matter cannot be prosecuted federally, it is important to remember that this incident resulted in the tragic loss of a teenager’s life,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta of the Civil Rights Division. “Our decision not to pursue federal charges does not condone the shooting that resulted in the death of Trayvon Martin and is based solely on the high legal standard applicable to these cases.”
Wright State University President Apoligizes for Black History Month Menu Featuring Fried Chicken & Collard Greens
AM I MISSING SOMETHING, IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE A JOKE. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS REACHES A NEW STUPIDITY … FRIED CHICKEN AND COLLARD GREENS ARE AUTHENTIC SOUL FOOD?
Wright State University president David Hopkins and its dining services vendor have apologized for creating a menu for Black History month that included fried chicken and collard greens. HUH? The menu consisted of fried chicken, collard greens, mashed potatoes and cornbread. Okay, I am still missing the problem, was it the fact that potatoes are not ethnic? This is just another example that some people will complain about anything and will forever be a victim, no matter what. Supposedly, Billy Barabino, a senior organizational leadership major from New Jersey and president of the Black Student Union was offended saying the following, “I was really hurt (by the menu). Extremely hurt.” For me, it was a knock in the face for African (and) African- American individuals who have fought for us to be progressive. I was extremely offended by it because it minimizes who we are as people.” Dude, did anyone tell you that this type of food is your heritage? Isn’t that the point of Black History month, to honor the black heritage and culture in America?
A note to Billy Barabino and the rest of the victims, you do realize that fried chicken, hog maw, collard greens, ham hocks, black-eyed peas, okra, turnip greens, cornbread, Hoecake, Hoppin John, fatback and chitlins are all authentic African-American soul food, right? You might want to try some fried catfish, chicken and dumplings or Collar Greens with Ham Hocks. Instead of complaining about being offended, maybe you might want to try them, they are actually good. Amen to the folks over at The Last Tradition, PC Stupidity when Liberals at Wright State University feel Fried Chicken and Collard Greens is offensive cuisine for Black history month.
After a menu featuring fried chicken and collard greens under a photo of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and other African American leaders for Black History Month, the president of Wright State University in Ohio and its dining services vendor have apologized.
The Dayton Daily News reported that images were circulated on social media, calling it offensive and disrespectful.
President David Hopkins wrote in an email of the university’s commitment to diversity and pride at hosting the Phoenix Project and forum featuring daughters of several civil rights leaders. Hopkins said he would find out why a menu sign included chicken, mashed potatoes, collard greens and cornbread under a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. and other famous black figures, according to the Dayton Daily News.
“I apologize to anyone hurt by the display,” Hopkins wrote in an email. “To our credit, the menu was quickly removed. But the larger question remains: Why was it done? I will find out. We will take steps to prevent this kind of behavior occurring in the future.”
Chartwells Higher Education Dining Services released a statement that read, in part:
“Chartwells celebrates many national events on campus and tries to provide authentic and traditional cuisine to reflect each theme. In no way was the promotion associated with Black History Month meant to be insensitive. We could have done a better job putting this in context of a cultural dining experience. We sincerely apologize.”
I am still trying to figure out how this idiot Billy Barabino is extremely hurt and exactly what action do you plan to take? How exactly is having on a menu, that which is ethnic food that blacks have ate in the past and continue to do so offensive and not an effort in diversity? Seriously, does Billy not understand that is his history? Are you telling me that the many times that I have gone to friends houses that are black and we ate fried chicken, collard greens, black-eyed peas, black-eyed peas, fried okra, turnip greens and cornbread, we were being racist? Maybe some one should tell my black friends. I hate to break it to you Billy Barabino but no one of your ancestors in the United States were eating Kapenta with sadza and Namibian venison.
I guess Billy doesn’t get too much soul food in Jersey.
I can’t wait until the Irish complain that they are offended and extremely hurt on St. Patrick’s Day when when the food vender serve corned-beef and cabbage, boxty, and Shepherd’s Pie.
Or in March during Greek-American Heritage Month when the Greek students conduct boycotts and “no justice, no peace” protests in the cafeteria when they serve Moussaka, Baklava, Tzatziki and Gyros.
And in May during Asian Pacific American History Month don’t even think about serving rice.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson Interjects Himself into the Little League Jackie Robinson West Being Stripped of US Championship … No Justice, No Peace …”Is this Boundaries or Race?”
WITH JESSE JACKSON, ITS NOT ABOUT BASEBALL CARDS, ITS ALWAYS ABOUT THE RACE CARD ...
This should be a learning lesson for kids, instead it has been highjacked by race-bating smear merchants. This should be a lesson to young kids that there are rules and when some one breaks them, there are consequences. Sadly, those that only want to keep black and white against each other have another vehicle to preach their hate. It is predictable as the sun coming up in the east and setting in the West, it is as certain as death and taxes … Jesse Jackson playing the race card.
The Reverend Jesse Jackson cries “no championship, no peace” with regards to the Jackie Robinson West Little League baseball team being striped of their US Championship because of cheating. The Reverend Jackson is upset that the first all-black Little League baseball team US champion has been stripped of their title due to breaking rules. But Jackson says, its not like they broke age rules, it was just ones of boundaries. WHAT!!! Jackson stated, “boundary and residence issues — when parents have dealt with housing difficulties and are trying to find decent schools for their children — can’t really be compared to other cheating, such as lying about their ages.” HUH, why not? What a joke, Jesse Jackson, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the rest of the pathetic and corrupt Chicago politicians want to teach a new group of youth, the Chicago way.
Little League Baseball decision to follow rules is racist
“I was upset to the point of tears this morning,” Jackson said, adding that he already had spoken to some of the parents of the players and was distressed to learn they had heard the news through the media.
Their children already have been harassed over the controversy, Jackson said, and “it’s not like the children are cheating.”
Boundary and residence issues — when parents have dealt with housing difficulties and are trying to find decent schools for their children — can’t really be compared to other cheating, such as lying about their ages.
“There’s nothing these kids have done to have their championship erased,” Jackson said. “I hope the Las Vegas team will have the strength of character not to accept.”
THEN CAME WHAT WE WERE WAITING FOR … JESSE JACKSON PLAYING THE RACE CARD.
Later, Jackson spoke at a press conference with members of the Jackie Robinson West team and Chicago pastor Michael Pfleger, who joined Jackson in telling Little League International to reverse its decision. They had no problem bringing up the issue of race. Jackson asked, “Is this boundaries or race?” while Pfleger (who is white) said, “I definitely believe racism is a part of this.”
At an afternoon press conference, the Rev. Jesse Jackson asked, “Is this about boundaries or race?”
“This decision’s untimely and inappropriate at this time,” Jackson told reporters. “It should not take six months after a team has played a championship game to determine eligibility to play the game in the first place.”
The league’s decision came after teams from Illinois and Nevada complained that Jackie Robinson West’s roster was rigged.
The Rev. Michael Pfleger called the complaints from the Illinois team “mean-spirited” and “personal.”
“When you’re going over to voter registration and going to birth certificates and doing all this time of hunting and a witch hunt that’s been going on for the last number of months, I can’t help but wonder the question if the same thing would have been done with another team from another place, another race,” Pfleger said.
Detroit Black Man Who Murdered (Execution Style) Two White Teens Declares ‘Black Lives Matter’ During Sentencing Speech
HMM, DON’T WHITE LIVES MATTER TOO, DON’T THEY?
Convicted murderer Fredrick Young, who robbed, tortured, stripped, his victims, took them to a barren field in Detroit, forced them to kneel in just their underwear and shot them execution style in the back of their heads in late-July 2012 was sentenced to life in prison, decided to make a bizarre speech on Wednesday during sentencing. Instead of saying he was sorry to the families and friends of Westland teens Jacob Kudla and Jourdan Bobbis, who he and Felando D. Hunter murdered, the convicted killer instead apologized to the families of Michael Brown, the teen that was killed by officer Darren Wilson. Who was later not indicted by a grand jury and was recently reported that no civil rights charges will be brought either.
“I’d like to say sorry to the families of Aiyana Jones, Michael Brown, Eric Garner and I want to apologize to them for not being able to get justice for their loved ones who were murdered in cold blood. And in respect for the peaceful protest I want to say hands up, don’t shoot, black lives matter. That’s it your honor.”
Are you happy Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and the rest. This is what you have created with your false charges of police racism. The movement ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ is based upon a lie.
A black man who was found guilty of murdering two white teenagers execution-style in a vacant Detroit field defiantly declared “black lives matter” Wednesday before being sentenced to life in prison.
Fredrick Young and Felando Hunter were sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without parole for robbing, torturing and murdering Jourdan Bobbish and Jacob Kudla, who had met up with them in July 2012 to buy drugs, a local Fox affiliate reported.
Young shocked the courtroom when he was given the chance to address the victims’ families, but instead apologized to the families of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
“I’d like to say sorry to the families of Aiyanna Jones, Michael Brown, Eric Garner,” he said. “And I want to apologize to them for not being able to get justice for their loved ones who was murdered in cold blood.
“And in respect for the peaceful protest, I want to say ‘hands up don’t shoot,’” he said, raising his hands in the air. “Black lives matter — that’s it your honor.”
Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke Says About Al Sharpton … “Shut Up And Go Back To The Gutter You Came From”
FREE SPEECH HERO OF THE DAY …
This morning on Fox & Friends, Milwaukee, WI Sheriff David Clarke said that following the news that the DOJ will not bring civil rights charges against Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson, that he is owed an apology from Barack Obama, Eric Holder and Al Sharpton. Sheriff David Clarke further went on to say that this whole thing, ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ was based on a lie. He blistered Al Sharpton in a major way.
“I don’t expect anything intelligent to come out of the mouth of Al Sharpton. We all know he is a charlatan, for the matter of fact, the next intelligent thing that comes from his mouth will be the first. Al Sharpton ought to just shut up and go back to the gutter that he came from. Apologize, he will not do that. But the American police officer is owed a lot from him, from Eric Holder and the president of the United States.”
Eric Holder’s DOJ to Drop Civil Rights Charges Brought Against Officer Darren Wilson in Shooting Death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO
Imagine this, FBI investigation finds no evidence to support the trumped up, political, race baiting charges against police officer Darren Wilson.
The New York Times is reporting that the Eric Holder Department of Justice will drop the civil rights charges against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. DOJ lawyers will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against officer Wilson in the shooting death of black teenager Michael Brown. The FBI investigation has concluded what all normal thinking, non-race baiting individuals knew from the outset of this story, there was no evidence to support the trumped up charges. Remember when the DOJ told Ferguson police officers they could not wear bracelets in support of officer Wilson? Support for an officer that was guilty of nothing.
Justice Department lawyers will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Mo., after an F.B.I. investigation found no evidence to support charges, law enforcement officials said Wednesday.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and his civil rights chief, Vanita Gupta, will have the final say on whether the Justice Department will close the case against the officer, Darren Wilson. But it would be unusual for them to overrule the prosecutors on the case, who are still working on a legal memo explaining their recommendation.
A decision by the Justice Department would bring an end to the politically charged investigation of Mr. Wilson in the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The Missouri authorities concluded their investigation into Mr. Brown’s death in November and also recommended against charges.
After the Ferguson grand jury decided not to bring criminal charges against officer Wilson, Eric Holder went to Ferguson, Mo to fan the flames of racism and racial divide. Holder announced that his DOJ would investigate Wilson on civil rights charges, because the vigilante, race-baiting crowd wanted their scalp. Holder said that the Justice Department’s investigation into Mr. Brown’s death would be independent from the one conducted by the local authorities. The race-baiter in Chief, Barack Obama said after St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch announced the grand jury’s decision, “I have done what the Missouri judicial system and even my own Justice Department failed to do in order to right this wrong.”
What will the reaction be from Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the NAACP, NBPP and Barack Obama? Will Eric Holder make a public statement and apologize for destroying the reputation of a fine police officer just because of his color?
Race-Hustler & Charlatan Al Sharpton Calls for Emergency Meeting to Address ‘All-White’ Oscar Award Nominations and ‘Selma’ Snub
AND IN THE CATEGORY FOR BEST RACE HUSTLER AND SHAKE DOWN ARTIST … AND THE OSCAR GOES TO AL SHARPTON!!!
Now that Ferguson, MO has faded from the media and so has Al Sharpton, chief race hustler and Charlton is on to his next shake down and attention seeking effort. Al Sharpton is criticizing the Oscars for their lack of diversity in selecting nominees and stated the following, “I have called an emergency meeting early next week in Hollywood with the task force to discuss possible action around the Academy Awards.” (VIDEO) HUH? Sharpton stated, “The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher you get, the whiter it gets.” Um, could this guy be any more racist in his own comments? I was actually waiting for the obligatory Jew comment, but I guess Sharpton refrained. Just curious, why is it that everything has to be about race with this guy, other than the obvious? Sharpton was peeved because the Academy Awards only nominated the movie ‘Selma’ once. Honestly, who cares. But of course Sharpton has little to support his ridiculous “racist” claims as Selma was nominated for best picture, the top Oscar award.
Wasn’t ‘Hustle and Flow’ already a movie?
The Rev. Al Sharpton was left fuming mad after the Oscars revealed its all-white list of nominees for this year’s Oscar awards on Thursday.
“The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher you get, the whiter it gets,” Sharpton quipped in a statement released later in the afternoon.
Sharpton, a critic of the lack of diversity in Hollywood, also announced he was holding an “emergency meeting” next week to address the issue.
“I have called an emergency meeting early next week in Hollywood with the task force to discuss possible action around the Academy Awards,” he said.
The prestigious awards ceremony was widely criticized after its nominees for best actor, best actress, and best director were all white. In the past two decades this has happened only one other time, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
No one says it better than author, attorney, former Ronald Reagan administration official, president of Landmark Legal Foundation and syndicated conservative talk show host Mark Levin when it comes to calling out Al Sharton. As Levin said in responding to Sharpton’s current Oscar shakedown, “Al Sharpton has a very sick demented mind. Everything is about race. Everything is about race. Everyone who disagrees with him is a racist. How did this happen that this man, this putrid insignificant, barely articulate, buffoon of a human being could be on the stage like this all the time? Just muscle his way in. He owes taxes, he’s had court rulings against him, he has been involved in sleazy activities and yet there he is. I’ll tell you how it is. Because he is Barack Obama’s friend. Because Barack Obama brings him into the Oval Office, because Barack Obama promotes him, because he is a Barack Obama surrogate in places like Ferguson and with the NYPD, that’s how. I SAY SCREW ALL OF THEM!!!”
Mark Levin: Al Sharpton criticizes Oscars for “lack of diversity”
When liberals attack liberals … Al Sharpton calls ‘emergency meeting’ over Hollywood’s all-white Oscar list.
Mr. Sharpton gave kudos to the judges for nominating “Selma” for best picture, but then he decried the lack of diversity in the other categories.
“The lack of diversity in today’s Oscar nominations is appalling and while it is good that Selma was nominated for ‘Best Picture,’ it’s ironic that they nominated a story about the racial shutout around voting while there is a racial shutout around the Oscar nominations. With all of the talent in Selma and other black movies this year, it is hard to believe that we have less diversity in the nominations today than in recent history,” he said, Business Insider reported.
WAR ON THE POLICE: Gun Related Deaths for U.S. Police Officers Rose by 56% in 2014 … Krauthammer: “If There’s A Pattern Here, It’s The War on Police.”
The liberal MSM and race hustlers would like you to believe that cops target black men … the truth is that there is a “War on Police”.
If you believed President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, NYC Mayor De Blasio, race hustler Al Sharpton and the liberal media, you would think that there is a sudden epidemic of white police officers targeting and killing black men. To listen to these race-baiters, centuries of racism are at the root of this “War on Young Black Men,” with the recent deaths of Eric Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Brown in Brooklyn, NY. REALLY? Let’s take a look at the facts and we will see that the facts show that there is a war on the police. In 2014, there was a 56% increase in gun-related deaths of police officers in the United States. Many Americans are only aware of the ambush murders of NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Lu; however, there there have been so many more. According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, 50 police officers dies in the line of duty in 2014, where 1/3 or 15 officers were shot and killed in ambush style shootings. Sadly, a total of 126 law enforcement officers died in the line of duty in 2014, a 24 percent increase from 2013. God bless their souls and thank you for your service.
Gun related deaths of U.S. law enforcement officers rose by 56 percent in 2014 compared to the previous year, with about one-third of officers killed in an ambush, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund said on Tuesday.
Across the country, 50 officers were killed by guns in 2014 compared to 32 in 2013, according to the website of the non-profit fund, which aims to increase safety for law enforcement officers.
The most deadly states were California, Texas, New York, Florida and Georgia, the group said.
“Fifteen officers were shot and killed in ambush, more than any other circumstance of fatal shootings in 2014,” the website said.
Charles Krauthammer: “If There’s A Pattern Here, It’s The War on Police. I Don’t See A War on Young Black Men”
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Jason [Riley] is right. The narrative about it’s open season on young black men and police are responsible is preposterous. Let’s take the most egregious case. The one where I think there was a miscarriage of justice with the grand jury in Staten Island in the Garner case. There is not a shred of evidence that race had had anything to do with that event. Even in Ferguson here was a guy who essentially assaulted a police officer, tried to get his gun. There was no evidence that he was acting because of racial motives.
I’ll tell you if there is a narrative here, if there is a pattern, it’s what’s happening on the streets in regard to police. Let me give you just a run down. Same day as the shooting in New York, St. Louis off-duty cop shot at. December 21, Tarpon Springs, Florida, police officer shot at, run over by a car. Killed. Christmas Day, Durham [NC], police officer shot at. December 27th, Flagstaff [AZ], police officer shot and on the street. Yesterday, Dade City, Florida, two officers shot at. Yesterday, L.A., two police officers shot at, on the highway. If there is a pattern here, it’s the war on police. I don’t see a war on young black men.

Al Sharpton Says He’s the Victim of Death Threats During press conference Following Murders of Two NYPD Officers
PATHETIC LIBERAL, RACE BAITER: HEY AL, YOU CLAIM TO BE A REVEREND … YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW.
Al Sharpton, after inciting not so peaceful protests and fanning the flames of racism for months following the grand jury decision’s not to indict police officers in Ferguson, Missouri and Brooklyn, NY in the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, it reached critical mass as two on duty police officers where shot and killed at point blank range as they sat in their police car, now claims to be the victim. How typical of this parasite. Sharpton helped create the atmosphere that lead to mob rule, disrespect against police officers and ultimately to the murder of NYPD officers, Wenjian Lu and Rafael Ramos. Because of Sharpton’s actions, there have been protesters chanting death to cops. Because of his lies of racism, the police have become marked men. Now that the racism keg has ignited, Sharpton whines that he is getting death threats. Are you kidding me.
After the justice process took place in Ferguson, MO and the grand jury decided not to indict, race-baiter Al Sharpton said the following, “You won the first round, Mr. Prosecutor, but don’t take your gloves off. Justice will come to Ferguson.” What was Sharpton’s definition of justice, revenge, the death of a police officer, what?
Like a typical race-baiting, liberal, now Al wants to play the victim after his rhetoric causes things to get way out of control. Own it Al!
Al Sharpton inspired protests in NYC … “What do we want, Dead Cops. When do we want it, NOW!”
Al Sharpton said Sunday that he’s been the victim of racist and violent death threats following the execution-style killings of two NYPD officers.
Critics have accused the reverend and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio of stoking racial and anti-police tensions in the aftermath of the police-involved death of Eric Garner.
Mr. Sharpton, appearing before reporters alongside Garner’s wife and mother, said he has received threats since NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were gunned down Saturday afternoon as they sat in their patrol car in Brooklyn, the New York Post reported.
The reverend played an expletive-filled voicemail over live television that purported to show someone saying, “Hey [n-word], stop killing innocent people, I’m going to get you!” the Post reported.
“I have several like this,” Mr. Sharpton said, the Staten Island Advance reported. “We are now under intense threat from those that are misguided, by those that are trying to blame everyone from civil rights leaders to the mayor rather than deal with an ugly spirit that all of us need to fight.”
Al Sharpton helped light the fuse that lead to the chaos and death of two NYPD officers and now he wants to file an insurance claim on the building that he aided in the arson. UNREAL.
The civil rights leader condemned police union leaders for accusing the mayor of inciting violence against cops.
