Hundreds of angry people marched through Harlem on Saturday after the Rev. Al Sharpton promised to “close this city down” to protest the acquittals of three police detectives in the 50-shot barrage that killed a groom on his wedding day and wounded two friends.
Justice was done. Get over it.
“We strategically know how to stop the city so people stand still and realize that you do not have the right to shoot down unarmed, innocent civilians,” Sharpton told an overflow crowd of several hundred people at his National Action Network office in the historically black Manhattan neighborhood. “This city is going to deal with the blood of Sean Bell.”
Closing the city will help? Sure, inconvenience everyone else and make the people lose millions of dollars in lost wages and income. What a nice guy you are.
Sharpton was joined by the family of 23-year-old Sean Bell – a black man – and a friend of Bell who was wounded in the 2006 shooting outside a Queens strip club. Two of the three officers charged were also black.
Good luck making this a race issue. Bet it breaks your heart that you can’t.
The rally at Sharpton’s office was followed by a 20-block march down Malcolm X Boulevard and then across 125th Street, Harlem’s main business thoroughfare, where some bystanders yelled out “Kill the police!”
Hmm, meeting at the NAN in a black neighborhood, marching down a street named after a black person, and yelling “Kill the Police!”. Hmm, why make this a ‘black’ thing? Justice is colorblind, right? And killing the police helps? If you feel someone was done wrong by the judicial system and calling for other innocent people to killed is justice then you don’t have any idea what justice is. This is what you’d expect down in Kenya but not in this country! (I picked Kenya because of the recent voting/rioting/killing problem they had.)
Fifty of the marchers carried white placards bearing big black numbers for each of the police bullets fired at Bell and his friends.
Would it be wrong to take up a collection to buy more bullets for the NYPD?
Sharpton didn’t say exactly how they would protest the acquittals of the officers who fired the 50 shots. He said Bell’s supporters could demonstrate all over the city, from Wall Street to the home of Justice Arthur Cooperman, who on Friday acquitted the three detectives after a nonjury trial.
Here’s what Al needs to do. Go through the same training regular police officers do and patrol the streets just like them. You’ll quickly find out just how much scum is out there and how little they care for your life. They don’t think at all about killing you.
Watch a few episodes of COPS and see all of the BS that police have to deal with. You’ll be amazed!
