    The police officer who shot and killed a man on Tuesday in Berkeley, Missouri, was given a body camera but it was not activated at the time of the shooting, officials said today. The shooting sparked new unrest in a region already reeling following an August police shooting a few miles away in Ferguson. About 200 to 300 protesters gathered at the gas station where Tuesday night's shooting happened. When asked whether he was concerned that the officer's body cam was not activated, Berkeley Mayor Theodore Hoskins said he was "not concerned."

    Outside of the president, Al Sharpton might possibly be the most powerful man in America right now. And no, that isn’t an overstatement. Think about what the 60-year-old activist and MSNBC host has going for him right now: Power Indicator #1: Sharpton has been to the White House to advise President Barack Obama, his senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, or both. No big deal, right? Plenty of MSNBC hosts have visited over the past six years. Care to guess, according to the White House Visitor Log, just how many times Sharpton has visited since Mr. Obama took office? Five times? Nope....

    The Salt Lake City Tribune ^ | December 23, 2014 | Sandhya Somashekhar, Social Change Reporter, The Washington Post
    Veteran civil rights leader Al Sharpton, who has tried to play the statesman during heated protests over police shootings, now faces accusations of incitement after the murder last weekend of two officers in New York City. Sharpton has worked over the years to shed his reputation as a firebrand, and in recent months had provoked the ire of younger protesters who favor a more confrontational approach. Sharpton, for instance, angered some young activists by rebuffing them when they unexpectedly asked to speak at a march his nonprofit group organized in Washington. But after the deaths of the two officers, momentum...

    President Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Bill de Blasio, and the Rev. Al Sharpton are fueling the flames of racism in America just as the Ku Klux Klan did 100 years ago. Sounds inflammatory? It is. What’s worse, it’s true. The reason? They are considered the establishment. They are out in broad daylight perpetrating a racist agenda and, instead of wearing a white sheet to protect their identity, they are shrouded in the cloak of government. They are adept and skillful at delivering a populist message of redistribution of wealth or how minorities are targeted by the police. Listen my friends,...

    Crime: Talking about a war on cops motivated by race-baiting is mere "conjecture," according to the NAACP, which says that the assassination of two New York cops is an "example of the need for strict gun-control measures." After the tragic death of Eric Garner while resisting arrest, Mayor Bill de Blasio told New Yorkers how he had warned his biracial son to be wary of cops who, in any confrontation, might misinterpret his actions in a way they would not with a white suspect. Cops are the enemy, not the criminals they try to protect you from. Well, on Friday...

    I was somewhat encouraged this week when New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called for a pause in the protests and quiet on the streets until after the funerals of the two slain NYPD officers. It seemed a prudent move, giving everyone a chance to pause and reflect, to allow tensions to ease a bit and just maybe allow everyone to retire with their families for Christmas. The horrific tragedy of the police officers’ assassinations might have a chance to settle in and bring everyone to a more sober realization of the need to bring the social temperatures down...

    Activist groups in New York City have rejected a call by Mayor Bill de Blasio to hold off on any new demonstrations until after the funerals of two NYPD officers who were ambushed and murdered Saturday in Brooklyn. [Snip] However, the Rev. Al Sharpton told Reuters late Monday that de Blasio's request was too "ill-defined" to heed. "Is a vigil a protest? Is a rally?" Sharpton asked.

    In the aftermath of the death of Eric Garner, Al Sharpton told those upset with the actions of police to “fight back” against them. In the time since his statement, police have been attacked by angry people upset with the deaths of Michael Brown and Garner. This violence reached its highest point this past weekend when a man murdered two NYPD officers in cold blood as they sat in their police cars. Sharpton, speaking to a crowd at Garner’s funeral, told people to fight back. “You can’t stop us on this one,” Sharpton told the crowd. “God will take care...

    The cold-blooded murder of two New York City policemen as they sat in their car is not only an outrage but also a wake-up call. It shows, in the most painful way, the high cost of having demagogues, politicians, mobs and the media constantly taking cheap shots at the police. Those cheap shots are in fact very expensive shots, not only to the police themselves but to the whole society. Someone once said that civilization is a thin crust over a volcano. The police are part of that thin crust. We have seen before our own eyes, first in Ferguson,...

The cold-blooded murder of two New York City police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, follows weeks of Sharpton's vilification of law enforcement personnel. As you know, Walmart has helped bankroll Sharpton for years. Most recently, the company was a sponsor of Sharpton's 60thbirthday party in New York City, which reportedly was a fundraiser for NAN that raised a million dollars. We have repeatedly raised...

Somebody, aggrieved by what these leaders have said, walks up and kills two cops in cold blood. Cause and effect. A leads to B leads to bagpipes and “Amazing Grace.” And when they’re trying to hose the blood out of a precinct car it’s a little late to distance yourself from it.

But the conversation, in one shocking instant on Saturday, took an unexpected turn. One day after two police officers were fatally shot at point-blank range as they sat in their squad car in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, leaders of several groups who had been rallying for criminal justice reform scrambled to condemn the killings while still keeping the...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) The ambush killing of two New York police officers on Saturday has forced a burgeoning protest movement against police violence to address accusations that it bears some responsibility for violence carried out in the name of that cause. Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were fatally shot Saturday as they sat in their patrol car in a Brooklyn neighborhood. The suspect, 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley, is thought to have posted threats against police on social media before shooting his ex-girlfriend in Baltimore and then traveling to New York to target the officers. He killed himself moments after attacking the officers....

One 30-year-old local who gave his first name only as Carlos, didn’t hear the gunfire but saw the hysteria and walked to the police tape. And he couldn’t believe his eyes or ears. He didn’t see shock or sorrow but glee and jubilation.

    If you are a woman, it’s a pretty seductive argument : “Research shows men really are more stupid than women.”However, when your entire research universe is drawn from a self-selecting pool of low IQ specimens -- it’s hard to give the conclusion too much weight: Study Abstract: Sex differences in risk seeking behaviour, emergency hospital admissions, and mortality are well documented. However, little is known about sex differences in idiotic risk taking behaviour. This paper reviews the data on winners of the Darwin Award over a 20 year period (1995-2014). Winners of the Darwin Award must eliminate themselves from the...

    I went down to Al Sharpton March at Freedom Plaza today, which featured the Mothers of Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner with a crowd of mostly out of towners that numbered between 8,000 to 10,000 at the height of it all. The march and rally pretty much ended with around 3pm with Sharpton making a very brief appearance and mostly White Leftwingers hijacking the march afterwards as the out of towners headed for their buses. The signage held up by these Leftists radical included environmental messages, the overthrow of the capitalist system. One sign proclaimed that, "Capitalism was the disease...

    After weathering one of the most embarrassing days in her career, during which her racially insensitive remarks were disseminated on the Internet, Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal is ready to begin the "healing process," and reached out to the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. "I'm being proactive," the executive tells The Hollywood Reporter. "And I want to accept responsibility for these stupid, callous remarks." Pascal said one of the first calls she made today — after a leaked email exchange between her and producer Scott Rudin became the most buzzed-about topics in town and throughout the country — was...

    Among the familiar hucksters who sought to capitalize on the troubles in Ferguson, Missouri, came a new face: Prince Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights and self-styled heir to the non-existent royal houses of Iraq and Syria. “I am deeply concerned,” Prince Zeid said in a press release, about “institutionalized discrimination” in America, and “I urge the U.S. authorities” to conduct “in-depth examinations” of racial justice. Notwithstanding the overwhelming evidence that Michael Brown’s death resulted from the criminal acts he engaged in before and during his encounter with officer Darren Wilson, Zeid’s Human Rights Council...

    When I asked Cunha why we couldn’t encourage people to simply not have children before marriage, graduate high school, and get a job, she answered: I don’t think you can encourage people not to have children before they get married and to get a job and to graduate high school when they’re dealing with issues that we don’t have to deal with….We need to help them have personal responsibility. They can’t do it when they’re busy trying to eat. In other words, give people money, or they will abandon their children, drop out of school, and refuse to get a...

    On Sunday, Al Sharpton appeared on NBC’s Meet The Press to fulfill his weekend race-baiting quota, discussing the grand jury results in the cases of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. After Chuck Todd asked Sharpton about addressing the problem of “economic hopelessness” in the black community – Garner was arrested for selling “loosies,” cigarettes outside the pack, illegally – Sharpton explained that he supported a “jobs bill…infrastructure development.” Then he continued by explaining that if Congress didn’t pass such bills, black men could not be held responsible for taking care of their children: You can't kill a jobs bill and...

    December 8, 2014 4:00 AM The Department of Social Justice Federal officials lectured Ferguson residents about “white privilege.” By Ryan Lovelace When Department of Justice officials arrived in Ferguson, Mo., one day after the death of Michael Brown, it wasn’t just to conduct an investigation on potential civil-rights violations. In fact, officials from one Justice Department office were conducting meetings with Ferguson residents to educate them on subjects such as “white privilege.” The DOJ’s Community Relations Service arrived in Ferguson purportedly to lessen the tension between protesters and city officials. But sources who attended the DOJ’s private gatherings with Ferguson...

    Such hypocrisy and reverse-racism is breathtaking. The brutal truth is Sharpton, Holder and Obama will never address this officer’s death because he was white and because they protect the black gangs out there. Officer Kevin Quick was kidnapped and murdered by four black gang members – they belong to the Bloods street gang known as the 99 Goon Syndicate out of Los Angeles. Quick was forced to drive from ATM to ATM to get money, then he was taken out in the woods and executed as a gang initiation rite. It never really made the news and it certainly didn’t...

    NEW YORK (AP) — The mother and widow of an unarmed black man whose police chokehold death sparked protests across the country said Saturday they've been moved by the thousands of peaceful demonstrators who have taken to the streets after a grand jury declined to indict the white officer involved. "It is just so awesome to see how the crowds are out there," said Eric Garner's mother, Gwen Carr, who added that she ended up stuck in her car after protests shut down traffic. "I was just so proud of that crowd," Carr said. "It just warmed my heart."(continued)

Al Sharpton: Keep your “circus” away from his funeral!

    The blowhard opportunist muscled his way into the arrangements — and even put out press releases promising to deliver the eulogy — without ever consulting the family or offering to foot the bill. But Gurley’s relatives told Sharpton to stay away rather than turn the somber ceremonies into a spectacle. “It’s been a nightmare,” Gurley’s aunt, Hertencia Petersen, told The Post. “He just wants to take credit for this when he’s never even contacted my sister [Gurley’s mother]. “Who made you the spokesperson of our family? We just want to bury our nephew with dignity and respect.”
