• Al Sharpton Calls for DOJ to Take Over Police Across America

    Rev. Al Sharpton is demanding for the Justice Department to “fight states’ rights” and take over police departments across the country.

    “We need the Justice Department to step in and take over policing in this country,” Sharpton said on during a meeting with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

    “In the 20th century, they had to fight states’ rights in — to get the right to vote. We’re going to have to fight states’ rights in terms of closing down police cases.” he said.

    “Police must be held accountable,” he added. “I don’t think all police are bad. I don’t even think most are bad. But those that are need to be held accountable.”

    Sharpton, who still has not arrested for owing millions of dollars in back taxes, said in 2011 during the NAACP State Convention that “states’ rights has always been the enemy of civil rights. The idea of the civil rights movement was for the federal government to protect citizens, not leave them alone.”

    Sharpton stated while running for president during the 2004 primary debate that states’ rights are “dangerous” and argued that because of rights specified in the Constitution “we ended up with slavery and segregation.”
