    I don't have to sink so low to do that like you do. The sad part is its a legitimate poll and it is skewed by your numerous posts.

    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.

    How about the other LEOs who were killed in the line of duty since the "gentle giant" met his demise?

    No Sharpton wasn't in NYC when the crowd was videoed calling for dead cops but the activist group that did organize the Million March in NYC was well represented in numbers at Al Sharpton's led march in DC. The group's name is Black Lives Matter that were behind organizing the NYC Million March.



    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)

    Black Lives Matter isn't an "organization" in the traditional sense of the word for that matter in any sense of the word. It's more like splinter cells of community groups all over the county using single banner to identify their cause. Think tea party. Though people sometimes make the mistake (myself included) of viewing it as a single group, it's more like a whole bunch of little groups all over the country doing their own protests under the tea party banner. It's an umbrella term for people to understand what the rally is about. So for example, a local church can hold a BLM event and simply notify members what it is about by using the hashtag #blacklivesmatter. This is a little complex, I know but pretty straightforward if you understand the role of social media in organizing protests.

    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. . . ."

    ......“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’
    So, show Al Sharpton in DC....

    Yes indeed. For some reason the only options polls have here at DP are private polls (where leftists will vote as conservatives to provide misleading results without scrutiny) or public polls where people outside the site can vote (that again, can be anyone, and that are intended to distort the results to suit the left). In this threads poll, it spins the poll results to a different direction, and in the JFK/Cuba embargo thread only a few forumites voted but over 100 votes blamed JFK's embargo on the TEA party.

    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.
