Charlatan Al Sharpton: Our City Is Hurting From Vicious Murder of Two NYPD Officers
ONE WEEK AGO—
Several thousand protesters marched in New York City.
The protesters were part of Al Sharpton’s “Million Marchers” protest against police violence.
The protesters chanted “What do we want?… Dead cops!” as they marched in New York City.
Yesterday, two New York City police officers were shot dead execution style in their vehicle.
Al Sharpton scrambled to change his angry anti-cop rhetoric.
The Rev released this statement last night.
The New York Daily News reported:
As soon as news broke of the tragedy in Brooklyn, I spoke with both the families of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. And let me be perfectly clear, we are all outraged and saddened by the deaths of these police officers.
Our city is hurting, we are hurting. Today we mourn the loss of two NYPD officers who were gunned down in a vicious act of senseless violence.
As soon as news broke of the tragedy in Brooklyn, I spoke with both the families of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. And let me be perfectly clear, we are all outraged and saddened by the deaths of these police officers. 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.
At every rally and every march, we have stressed nonviolence and peaceful protests.
I delivered the eulogy at Michael Brown’s funeral and Eric Garner’s funeral and denounced anyone engaging in violence. We have even been criticized at National Action Network, NAN, for not allowing certain rhetoric/chants calling for violence, and we would abruptly denounce it at all of our gatherings. Violence never has and never will have a place in the true fight for equality and justice.
The hypocrisy of this man in stunning.
The Rev also tweeted this out.
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.

Suddenly, Al Sharpton is strangely pro-police.
