I voted no because as far as I am aware, Al Sharpton has not chanted anything about wanting dead cops, nor condoned any chant. If that were the case, I would vote yes.

Moderator's Warning: Folks, lets keep the talk focused on the topic...not one liner back and forths regarding accusations of poll manipulation.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
How about the other LEOs who were killed in the line of duty since the "gentle giant" met his demise?

Daily Beast has been investigating within the groups present at the march were responsible for chanting for dead cops as there were several organizations. They seem to think all fingers point to the Trayvon Martin Organizing Committee. (TMOC)

Big Lie of Anti-Cop Left Turns Lethal - Heather Mac Donald, City Journal
"Since last summer, a lie has overtaken significant parts of the country, resulting in growing mass hysteria. That lie holds that the police pose a mortal threat to black Americans—indeed that the police are the greatest threat facing black Americans today. Several subsidiary untruths buttress that central myth: that the criminal-justice system is biased against blacks; that the black underclass doesn’t exist; and that crime rates are comparable between blacks and whites—leaving disproportionate police action in minority neighborhoods unexplained without reference to racism. The poisonous effect of those lies has now manifested itself in the cold-blooded assassination of two NYPD officers. . . ."

So, show Al Sharpton in DC..........“In Washington, the rally was held by the Rev. Al Sharpton, host of MSNBC program — and there he is,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson as video of Sharpton’s Saturday speech played. “Sharpton got up and explained, ‘We’re not against the police.’ This was his claim, listen.”
At that point, Fox News showed a clip from a protest later that evening in Manhattan.
“What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!” the protesters reportedly shouted.
The video then flipped back to Sharpton: “We’re not saying all police are bad. We’re not even saying most are bad. We’re not anti-police, but we’re anti-brutality. And the federal government must have a threshold to protect that.”
Fox News host Anna Kooiman pointed out after the clip aired that she had accidentally gotten stuck in traffic because of the protests in New York City, and never heard calls for violence against police.
“But what they were doing was making this into a racial issue,” Carlson opined. “What I don’t think this is about is race, I don’t think these are examples of racism. And I think it’s totally unhelpful to make this a conversation about white vs. black.”
“And it’s ridiculous to have it led by Al Sharpton who has zero credibility at all, he’s a hustler, and I think a criminal.”
Fox News deceptively edits Al Sharpton’s anti-violence speech to include chant for ‘dead cops’
Then show a NYC march/protest.....
And then say(with laughter):
.....huh, so the first clip we heard people were saying "we want the cops dead" and the second(laughter)heard Al Sharpton say "we are not against the police"......
Fox is actually fueling the flames.
Happens all the time with tucker and Fox.......
Its probably just a bad apple or two but everything the left does is about spin. I'd like to see the mods address this by having an option that is public but not open to those outside the site.
