Sharpton Planning March on Washington Over Police Shootings

December 04, 2014  | 

Rev. Al Sharpton is planning a national march on Washington next week following a grand jury decision not to indict a New York City police officer in the death of Eric Garner.

Sharpton said at a press conference Wednesday night at his National Action Network headquarters in Harlem that the march will take place on Saturday, Dec. 13.

“It’s time for a national march for a national crisis,” Sharpton said.

He continued: “We are not advocating violence, we are asking that police violence stop.”

Where was windbag Sharpton when the Wash. DC snipers were dropping folks left & right. Where was he preaching about the poor black men who were killing folks and how they were poor victims?
Maybe I'm seeing this in a simple light because of my 25 years on the street but Brown & the others would still be alive if they had (simply followed the laws). It's so simple, obey the laws of the land & the evil police don't bother you, but if break the laws the police usually show sometime. What's next, the laws only apply to the minority white folks?
This country has gotten really screwed up!

Al Shapton has never seen an ambulance he did not want to chase. What a jerk!!

The Sheeple are so stupid. Just like when Obama fly's around on AF1, but has a Black "Dark Vader Bus to act like a man of the people. I highly doubt Al Sharpton will walk. He's a lazy jerk like Bathhouse Barry! Sure Weird Al will show up to agitate the EBT hoodrats. But he himself likes Oysters Rockefeller, fine wine and the good life. The media will just show clips of Al walking, like he's so somber for a PR Op. But reality is he takes Learjet's and lives like a rap star. I'm against Police Brutality. But this unarmed teen/man garbage is a crock. If a 12 boys carries an air gun that looks real how the heck does a LEO know it's not real? Are they supposed to be psychic? In the old days parents told their children, don't play in the street, don't carry a GUN or anything that looks like a gun in public etc. Where has commonsense gone? Crappy parents who blame others for their lack of parenting! Or use the race card.

Maybe what is needed is a march on Washington by the men in blue telling, not asking, Sharpton and those like him to shut up and quit the race baiting and inciting rioting and unlawful behavior. It is one thing to put your life on the line for those who appreciate the sacrifice officers make, it is another when they are spitting in your face. Police need to do a better job of standing up for themselves. Instead of being perceived as expendable, people need to know that police are the only barrier between them and anarchy.

I wonder how much money Al will make for his march to incite the masses? He doesn't show up for free.

Al Sharpen is only doing Obama's, dirty work. If congress had the balls to impeach Obama, we would not have this BS. Next time around I am voting third party.

Stupid Sharpton. He should be demanding that criminal violence stop. Funny, the criminals must have Sharpton's nekkid picture above their beds, hoping to pussify police officers with threats of litigation.

So maybe Washington could authorize a "Crazy Bus Driver Day" just for one day, allowing all buses to drive 60 mph and disregard stop signs. Just need to pick ONE day, what oh WHAT should that day be..... wait wait don't tell me.

All I can say to kevCopAz is WOW! WHAT AGENCY DO YOU WORK FOR? I am sure Eric Holder has an 800 number you could call. If you do not report it then you are part of the problem.

@ Police Magazine, someone is using my name without my consent could you stop this type of behavior?
