Al Sharpton Slams NYPD for Arrest of Ex-Wife and Daughter
November 03, 2009
The Rev. Al Sharpton lashed out Sunday at the "unfair" treatment of his daughter and ex-wife by cops who arrested the duo for arguing over a traffic ticket in Harlem.
"I cannot imagine how two unarmed women with no record, could be taken in cuffs from a traffic dispute with NO personal or property damage involved," Sharpton wrote in a string of angry postings on Twitter. "Well this is what we deal with everyday. We will never accept unfairness."
Sharpton's oldest daughter, Dominique Sharpton, 23, and ex-wife, Kathy Jordan, 53, were arrested Friday when they got into a heated verbal tussle with cops during a traffic stop, police said.
Dominique Sharpton sped past a police car on Eighth Ave. at 110th St. and blasted through a red light before cops nabbed her, sources said.
