Al Sharpton: SC Shooting Shows Need For New Federal Law

|| By FITSNEWS || South Carolina has gone and done it now …

The backwoods, backwards banana republic has actually made Al Sharpton sound like he knows what he’s talking about.

Well, we take that back … the Palmetto State (site of the latest white cop/ black victim police shooting) has given the notorious poverty pimp/ tax evader a leg to stand on in pursuing his curious brand of “justice.”  And Sharpton is milking it for all it’s worth … proposing a new civil rights policing law that he says would protect blacks from future violence at the hands of law enforcement.

“There must be national policy and national law on policing,” Sharpton said. “We can’t go from state to state, we’ve got to have national law to protect people against these continued questions.”

Sharpton – who announced the proposal at the kickoff his National Action Network’s annual convention – said North Charleston officials acted correctly in filing charges against 33-year-old Michael Slager, who shot and killed 50-year-old Walter Scott during a traffic stop last week.

“We commend them, but we cannot have a justice system that hopes we have a mayor in the right city or a police chief,” he said. “We have to have one policy that is national.”

Wait … Sharpton is commending North Charleston? 

Last time we checked the city was on the verge of sweeping this shooting under the rug, offering a grossly distorted (and in some cases completely fabricated) version of what really happened.  It was only after an amateur video of the incident shredded the official narrative that Slager was arrested.

That’s hardly “commendable” behavior in our view.

Still, does any of this mean a new national policing law is warranted?

No …

What’s needed – as we’ve said dating back to last year’s racially charged Ferguson, Missouri unrest – is simple.  All police officers need to be “independently wired” as they perform their duty.  Wired for pictures … and for sound.

North Charleston has taken this step in the aftermath of the Scott shooting … but had it taken it beforehand, we might not be in this situation.

Al Sharpton hasn’t been told all the original details as to exactly what transpired with the City of North Charleston standing with the cop – until the video made them look like totally fucked up two faced full of shit psychopaths. But Sharpton is going to be told what originally took place – how North Chuck was sweeping it all under the rug. Sharpton is expected to turn around and condemn Mayor Summey of North Charleston and North Charleston police chief Driggers.
.
So stay turned, folks.

Al Sharpton is maligned by many but he does do a lot of good. If we didn’t have these injustices he wouldn’t have a job. I say we get rid of injustices. We should have a long, long time ago.

Mumia Abu Jamal

2004 Presidential run illegal donations

Yeah, a lot of good…

Who have the Republicans ever demanded that they resign?? Who? Remember that alcoholic, racist white Republican congressman from the great state of SC that yelled out “You lie!” at the nationally televised State of the Union of the first Black President in our nation’s history? Did they make him resign? Did they demand he resign? Hell no – they fundraised off him. You don’t have a fucking clue.

President Obama, September 2009 “…“There are also those who claim that our reform effort will insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false — the reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.”

Representative Wilson, that same night: “YOU LIE!”

Fast-forward to 2014, and lo and behold, the Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Burwell “called for extending Obamacare benefits to DREAM-eligible illegal immigrants.” That was always their plan.

I’m glad you brought up Mumia–another fraud based on a lie. Crown Heights–HE and his running buddy Alton Maddox, aw, aw, aw, nearly caused a massacre between the Jews and the west Indians. People don’t remember when he was a three hundred pound helmet head, screaming at the top of his lungs, taking any incident to get people whipped into a blood-lust frenzy, he is the Hitler of the hood. I wonder–who is the Nicky Barnes of 2015, because heroin is flowing, and after his flip to the FBI over the cocaine industrial complex to save his own hide, somebody is out there operating, somebody is out there selling all that good Afghani dope, I guess that person has the blessing of either Sharpton, the government, or both.

Once the video came out, “we” wouldn’t have needed the mayor or police chief on “our” side IN ANY CITY ANYWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES.

TBG almost wishes the cameraman would have sat on the video until the investigation was over. Forensics would have showed that the victim was shot multiple times at a distance, IN THE BACK, right?

Well, he did wait until he saw the cops lied on the police report:

“Santana said he changed his mind after reading the version of events as recounted by the police, which didn’t match what he had seen. He said he provided the video to the dead man’s family because he didn’t believe anything would happen to Slager if he didn’t come forward.”

Military.” Because something like this would never ever happen with a national police force, right? Maybe an executive order issuing these laws?

You realize that failure to pay payroll taxes is one of the reasons that the feds had tax liens on Trikki NIkki Haley for her bookkeeping work at her parents’ business a few short years ago, right?
It all came out before the general election in 2010 and not a SCGOP voter paid a bit of attention. But, they probably don’t understand that an employer failing to send in their Social Security contributions is stealing money out of their pockets. Or, they have such bad cases of Plantation Massa Syndrome, they don’t care how bad their employer screws them over.
This is a particularly hateful kind of employer and they should face more serious consequences than liens. And, our governor is one of them.

Why do we need a federal law. An officer shot and killed man without legal justification. The incident was investigated by state law enforcement officials and the proper charge was made. There have been 3 law enforcement officers charged in SC recently for shooting incidents ( should have only been 2). Sharpton should be singing the praises of SC for this not calling for more federal laws and intervention.

The Great Googily Moogily April 9, 2015 at 9:17 am

the only federal law i would like to see is one that says no police force will receive federal funding unless their entire force will be equipped with a body camera, the footage on that camera is the property of the general public and not the police force and must be released in full after the investigation is complete but before it goes to trial, and if the camera is turned off at any time during a relevant portion of the arrest (so they can still turn it off when they go to the can) then the department loses all federal funding for 1 year for the first offense and 5 years for the second. if more than 2 occur in the same year in the same county then all forces in that county lose funding for a year, if there are 3 in the same state the entire state loses funding for a year.

Enough with the notion that this was going to be just swept under the rug without the video. That just feeds the grievance industry with fuel to claim that all officer-involved shootings actually happened the same way, we just don’t have the video proof. That’s complete crap and not only that, the investigation into this shooting was just under way. The first responding officer to this shooting was black and clearly observed (while crouching over the victim) that he was face down and had bullet holes in his back. SLED responded shortly after and was already questioning the officer’s story. This officer wasn’t going to just have his word taken for. I’m not saying the video doesn’t help expedite the process or even bring murder charges (over what maybe would have been involuntary manslaughter sans video), but quit trumpeting the notion that the video is the be all, end all.
