Al Sharpton has posted a statement through his National Action Network condemning the execution of the two New York Police Department officers murdered in revenge for Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
Officers Rafael Ramos, 40, and Wenjian Liu, 32, were shot to death as they sat in their patrol car Saturday in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
Gunman Ismaaiyl Brinsley left a Facebook message stating, “I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today… They Take 1 Of Ours, Let’s Take 2 of Theirs #ShootThePolice #RIPErivGardner [sic]#RIPMikeBrown This May Be My Final Post… I’m Putting Pigs In A Blanket.”
“I have spoken to the Garner family and we are outraged by the early reports of the police killed in Brooklyn today, Any use of the names of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, in connection with any violence or killing of police, is reprehensible and against the pursuit of justice in both cases,” the Rev. Al Sharpton said.
Sharpton also tweeted, “An eye for an leaves the whole world blind. We all at NAN express our prayers and condolences to the families of the 2 NYC officers.”
President Obama, on his first day of vacation in Hawaii, was out on the golf course today. A White House official said, “The president has been briefed on the Brooklyn police shooting. White House officials continue to monitor the situation.
Compare that to the reactions by these race-baiters when the situation is reversed?
People are wondering why Al Sharpton hasn’t been arrested for inciting murders of police officers all over the United States?
And what about every Democrat who stood up on the floor of the Congress and supported the criminal over the police?
