    Did Al Sharpton's rhetoric contribute to the deaths of 2 NYPD Police officers?



    How could anyone ever prove-'Beyond a shadow of doubt'- that it did or didn't?

    Fill us in.



    This thread is all about trying to point fingers.

    With zero evidence to back that finger-pointing up.

    But according to the Right Wing knuckledraggers on here, they do represent the views of Democrats. So which is it?

    As I read the poll results this morning, it looks like 170 no's and 43 yes's. Wow.

    I figured you would've understood this since you confusedly keep trying to suggest I'm wrong, as it would be rather curious and laughable if you were trying to say I'm wrong without even knowing what it is my posts were talking about.
    I understood your reasoning but what I didn't understand is no matter where Sharpton was or when, both marches were being promoted as Black Lives Matter events in social media. Both marches/rallies/protests had protestors representing the same national activist groups where they have chapters in every major city not making it difficult to rally the troops to make a statement. What I have observed about Sharpton, he is never in the place when the anarchists move into action. They wait till he leaves town as the case in NYC as in the case in Ferguson. He first shows up on the scene with the victims family around him making his claims of injustice, racist cops etc. raising tensions. Then he books it out of there and the anarchists take over. Even with Brown's family around Sharpton calling for calm in a media interview after the verdict was read, after Sharpton left town, we catch Brown's stepfather later on video inciting "burn this bitch down" at a rally. But Sharpton he was long gone. He was back in NYC enjoying fine dining while those he incited to anger were being arrested and thrown into jail. Same MO in NYC with the Garner case. He surrounds himself with the family of the victim at a press conference/rally. At which point he announces he will be in Washington DC for a march for Garner and Brown. Even after all the Grand Jury testimony released proving Wilson's innocence Sharpton keeps ratcheting up the tension by keeping Brown a victim of racist police, a racist prosecutor, and a racist Grand Jury. I posted a video that showed how ignorant these protestors are of the facts that were present at the D.C. rally. The anarchists know not to incite trouble where Sharpton will be. He wasn't in NYC when a group chanted "dead cops". He wasn't there when cops were being spit on, trash thrown at them, and the march shutting down bridges and main arteries by design keeping people from even getting an ambulance if needed and cops being assaulted by protesters the same day. Nope, Sharpton was in DC. When de Blasio called for a halt to protest until the funerals were over of the fallen police officers, Sharpton had a problem with that because he had already planned events. Today NYC is a mess just like Ferguson. But then again whenever Sharpton shows up nothing good happens.

    Greetings, Vesper.

    As in the Kent State shootings many years ago, the agitators came in, stirred up trouble and violence, and left before the police arrived. Students died, not the agitators! :

    Merry Christmas to you and yours, Vesper. *hug*

    Actually the dead cops thing was shouted hours after the protest was over, by a group fairly far away from the protestors, by a few dozen people, and all the Ferguson protest groups condemned it immediately.

    But, ya no, what are minor details like that to the mass media?

    You dont know how to read poll results. This was a public vote, and lefties outside of the forum (or anyone who can change their ISP) voted in a completely nonsensical manner. I suspect it was the same person or persons who somehow blamed the TEA party for JFK's implementation of the Cuban embargo.

    Look only at forum members and you will have a much better idea of the poll results. Maybe a light bulb will go off.

    who's jobs are the taking? Are you going to go pick Strawberry's for a buck or two a hr? Are you going to pay ten or twenty bucks for a pint of Strawberry's? Alright then...

    Without illegals food prices would be way higher than they already are...

    Anyway, I believe the cop killer was mentally deranged. This factor in my opinion is likely to have played a much bigger role than anything Al Sharpton might have said or done.
    Of course Sharpton has helped contribute to their deaths. He is a race baiting piece of crap that, unfortunately, many people take very seriously. He rouses emotion, calls for disunity and sets the spark.
