Al Sharpton has been on the NYPD like white on rice ever since the choking incident a few weeks ago, and the cops have had enough! A mock-up police department card that shows Rev. Sharpton under the title “Police Commissioner” has been making it’s rounds among police officers in New York City.
According to The New York Daily News, the card mimics a standard NYPD card stylistically and has a picture of Sharpton underneath the title and police seal. It expresses the NYPD’s frustration over the sway the activist has over Mayor de Blasio.
Sharpton has been in de Blasio’s ear ever since Eric Garner, a black father of sex, died when he was placed in a chokehold by police. The Reverend is now out for the blood Officer Daniel Pantaleo, the officer who choked Garner.
Sharpton famously told de Blasio that the mayor’s own son, who is half black, would be “a candidate for a chokehold” if his father weren’t mayor.
What do you think about this? Does Sharpton need to back off, or is he in the right about this? Let us know in the comments below!
