    In a sane world that would be incitement to violence at least, if not incitement to riot. He gets five behind bars.
    So you have some source you can provide with Sharpton saying "What do we want? Dead Cops?"

    Give me the quote where Sharpton advocates violence against cops.

    How insightful.

    Words. The friends of the least of president's have to learn to use words in full sentences with verbs and predicates, you can leave the confusing part, adjectives and participles for later.

    I guess you're cool with a call to kill people. How about this? "What do we want? Dead Democrats!"

    That's all right in your book.

    Don't ever try to tell anyone outside the Excited States that Obama's crowd aren't the biggest racists to come along since the KKK.

    How about the video in the OP?

    Unless there is evidence that Sharpton was involved in the chanting about dead cops, (which I doubt exists, he isn't that stupid) he is not to blame. Protest organizers and leaders can not control who attends a protest and what they do. It often happens that some idiots will show up to make the protest look bad with their behavior.

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

    Several years ago the KKK was pretty much ruined after losing a large civil lawsuit over inflammatory speech that contributed to a death. I don't see much difference between the incitement to violence from Sharpton and what the head of the KKK was doing.

    On the other hand, I hate the idea that the speech makers, exercising their free speech, should be held liable for every idiot and psychopath who does something and it somehow trace back to the speech maker. Video games don't kill. Music doesn't kill. Speeches don't kill. Books don't kill. Blame the murderer.

    I've heard some nutters. I don't think I've heard anyone who has visited any Republican White House with that kind of regularity calling for assassination. Could you point us to them?

    Al Sharpton hasn't called for violence either.
