He portrays himself as a having credibility and being a leader of blacks. The truth is, Sharpton’s latest round of race mongering in the wake of Ferguson, MO and New York, has contributed to the murder of NYPD Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos. He has incited violence against police officers nationwide.
Sharpton has spread hatred and lies for 40 years and it is time we put an end to it.
I understand that as law enforcement officers you accept the bitter with the sweet pursuant to how the public views you at any given time in accordance with doing your job.
That said, the job you perform is difficult enough without Al Sharpton putting targets on your back.
For nearly 18 years I have spoken out against the Al Sharptons who show up to ridicule and condemn law enforcement but not to help them. I have been one of the lone national voices still speaking out against the special treatment Mumia Abu-Jamal continues to be afforded after his cowardly attack and murder of Officer Daniel Faulkner. I am the only national public figure who regularly reminds the public of NYPD undercover officers James Nemorin and Rodney Andrews who were viciously assassinated execution style as they worked to remove guns from the hands of gangs.
Al Sharpton, et al who make careers condemning law enforcement do nothing but condemn. Now as I have said Sharpton’s most recent barrage of berating and vilifying law enforcement has led to the deaths of Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos and the shootings of officers in several states with threats to harm more officers.
I am speaking out in support of you and your families and I need your help. I initially considered attempting to boycott the sponsors of his MSNBC television show. But my staff and advisors believe the most effective way to combat this public abuse and vilification of law enforcement is to continue using my voice and platform.
That is where you come in. I am asking you to take a moment and read some of more recent nationally syndicated articles condemning Sharpton, et al. But it doesn’t stop there I need your help to reach more people and to be a public advocate and presence in ending Sharpton’s demagoguing of law enforcement for personal gain.
