Furthermore, who is Al Sharpton to even think a statement from him would be appropriate, or welcome at a time like this ? Then again, Sharpton’s certainly been a self-promoter, not to mention a liar, tax evader, and F.B.I. informant throughout his life, who elbowed his way into the racial discourse in this country years ago. Discourse that has deteriorated since he’s insinuated himself. I sincerely doubt the families of Officers Liu and Ramos are interested in anything Sharpton might have to say at this time.
While Sharpton, Mayor Bill De Blasio, Eric Holder and President Obama have all been extremely critical of law enforcement over the years, but particularly of late, they would all do well to take a second look at just what law enforcement regularly does on their behalf.
New York Mayor Bill De Blasio can rest easy in Gracie Mansion knowing that his well-being, and the well-being of his family is assured by the NYPD officers assigned to his personal security detail.No one will threaten his safety while New York’s Finest are standing by.
Wherever he travels Al Sharpton is guaranteed that there are police officers providing security protection for Sharpton and his party when he arrives. Police stand at the ready protecting whatever venue Sharpton is making an appearance at, including at his recent protest march in Washington, D.C. where officers were providing traffic and crowd control support so that this protest could take place.
Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice oversees the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Holder never travels without a protective detail. During his recent visit to Ferguson, Missouri the attorney general also had countless local police officers insuring he was safe from harm.
