    As you can see from that link, the event was organized and hosted by two women...Synead Nichols and Umaara Elliot. If you scan their website you will not see any claims of support from Al Sharpton or the civil rights group he founded, the National Action Network.

    If you go to that site and check the press releases, you'll find in the second press release a name of all the official co-sponsors/organizers for the group. You'll again notice that Al Sharpton and/or the NAN are no where to be found on it.

    Meanwhile, Sharpton was 225 miles away in Washington DC hosting his Justice for All March. This march was also on December 13th, the same day as the Millions March NYC, but in an entirely diffrent city.

    You can google "National Action Network" and "Justice for All March" and find all sorts of links to instances on their website talking about the protest in DC they organized and hosted.

    The only "evidence" that the New York crowd was in any way related to Sharpton has been:

    1. Random right wing blogs that are either unsourced...OR the sources they link to actually don't verify any of the claims they make
    2. Headlines or videos, such as a Fox and Friends video, where the NYC protests and the Al Sharpton protests are spoken about back to back giving the IMPRESSION they were directly related despite being entirely seperate events hosted by entirely different people.
    Ok, thanks for the reply.

    That's far too black and white of a view to be true.

    For such a " noble cause " it sure is fragile.

    If it can be brought down by a few bad apples how " noble " can it be ?

    The truth is if it was a cause based and backed by substance and not false narratives no amount of bad apples could bring it down.

    The central tenant of a Noble cause remains no matter what someone does to undermine it.

    The central tenants of this " cause " are all based on a BS plattitudes and misinformation. It was only a matter of time.

    There's no evidence to the contrary; and as far as the peaceful protestors go, they're just useful idiots.

    Yes, body cameras seem to help.

    Think about it. The drop in complaints and use of force may have more to do with the fact the citizen knows the their actions are being recorded. It is more difficult for one to claim police excessive force when your actions are recorded.
    The sixty percent drop in reports of use of force isn't what's reported by the civilians - it's what's reported by the cops themselves.

    You're taking my words as if I'm saying it's a lost cause. I don't think the idea that police officers should be prosecuted like every other citizen is a lost cause, but it only takes one crowd chanting "kill a cop" to delegitimize the rest of them at that moment. Same with OWS - the idea that trading should be fair and ethical is a noble cause, and a cause that could still win out one day, but the protests were quickly hijacked by those with ulterior motives.

    It's no different than when the tea party throws a protest and someone hangs Obama in effigy and everyone gets labeled racist. It's not to say that the cause of lower taxes isn't a noble cause, it's just that some #$*&#$s ruined it for everyone else at the time.

    My point is, it won't make these incidents go away. Eric Garner resisting arrest is a prime example.
