    All I've asked is for one quote that encourages this sort of violence in any way. Crickets.
    There is a long history of Sharpton inciting violence, and he slinks away like the slimy poverty pimp he is. These two cops are just the latest in a long list.

    I'm right leaning (but rational) and voted no. I'll copy paste from another thread I just posted on.

    Sharpton is a tool, a hustler, a joke. Having said that, I don't know why NY is yelling at Blasio and blaming him!? A man getting in front of the mic and saying that cops need to be accountable or have higher standards( in general) is not a man disparaging cops or calling for their murder. People need to get a grip!!

    Can you remind me when Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck led protests where chants of "What do we want? Dead Congressmen!" "When do we want them?" "Now!"? were being made?

    Sharpton didn't lead those chants either

    Can you please explain how support for the 2A is calling for criminal violence? Is support for the auto industry calling for deaths and injuries caused by vehicles?

    Did Cliven Bundy's rhetoric contribute to the death of two police officers?

    The guy who shot the cops is the one who is reponsible.

    While the Sharpton and others may've acted unwisely in ways that helped enflame the population, that is not actively "contributing" to a murder as they have no hand in that act.

    Seems like a pretty laughably dumb reason to "despite conservatives" since that trait is completely visible on both sides, unless your bigotry towards conservatives have caused you to forget that many liberals were blaming Rush and Palin and others very actively and very vocally then but largely have remained silent (if not outright defensive) of people in this given situation.

    Nothing like hypocritically despising hypocrisy.
