The Rev. Al Sharpton said Saturday he is “outraged” at the shooting deaths of two New York City police officers.
Sharpton said it is “reprehensible” anyone would link the deaths of the officers with the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and Eric Garner in Staten Island.
“We have stressed at every rally and march that anyone engaged in any violence is an enemy to the pursuit of justice for Eric Garner and Michael Brown. We have been criticized at National Action Network for not allowing rhetoric or chanting of violence and would abruptly denounce it at all of our gatherings,” Sharpton said in a statement.
