Sharpton: Trump comments encourage police violence – PBS NewsHour

Reverend Al Sharpton delivers remarks to media in Manhattan, New York, on October 10, 2016. Photo by Andrew Kelly/Reuters

NEW YORK The Rev. Al Sharpton on Saturday accused President Donald Trump of encouraging police violence during a speech this week on Long Island to an audience of uniformed officers.

The activist preacher tore into the Republican at the weekly gathering of his National Action Network in Harlem.

A day earlier, the president spoke to law enforcement professionals at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood. Trump said violence and murder on U.S. soil by the MS-13 gang linked to El Salvador justify a strong police response.

The president said his administration is removing gang members whove been terrorizing communities on Long Island and other parts of the country from the United States. He added, Now, were getting them out anyway, but wed like to get them out a lot faster, and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough, I said, please dont be too nice.

That means, for instance, shielding their heads from being bumped while getting into a police vehicle, Trump said.

READ NEXT: WATCH: Trump to police: Dont worry about people in custody hitting their heads on squad cars

Sharpton responded on Instagram: As if the reprehensible statement by President Donald Trump encouraging police violence wasnt enough, he used a slur against Irish regarding Paddy Wagons.

That expression was used in 19th century New York, referring to impoverished Irish immigrants when they were arrested and placed in police vans.

Sharpton called Trumps comments reprehensible. They were a reckless disregard for the law, and set a tone that is dangerous and biased in this country.

The Suffolk County Police Department said in a statement after Trumps speech that it has strict rules and procedures about how prisoners should be handled. Violations of those rules and procedures are treated extremely seriously. As a department, we do not and will not tolerate roughing up of prisoners.

James Burke, the departments former chief, was sentenced to nearly four years in prison last November for beating a handcuffed man in an interrogation room.

Sharpton rips Trump’s police comments ahead of D.C. justice march

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Saturday, July 29, 2017, 12:37 PM

They plan on keeping the faith.

In light of President Trumps casual comments appearing to endorse police brutality, Rev. Al Sharptons Saturday rally at his National Action Network headquarters in Harlem was even more spiritual than usual.

Sharpton was joined by Gyalwang Drukpa, the head of the Drukpa lineage of Buddhism, ahead of next months planned Ministers March for Justice in Washington.

The march will mark the 54th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.s famed I have a dream speech.

International cops condemn Trumps speech pushing use of force

We have to get out on the street and work for the people, said Gyalwang Drukpa, draped in burgundy and canary yellow robes.

Without disrespecting the prayers, without disrespecting the meditation … we physically have to go out and interact with the people and save the people, he said.

The Aug. 28 rally will include 1,000 ministers from a variety of faiths who will march from the MLK memorial on the National Mall to the Department of Justice.

Sharpton invoked Kings speech Saturday as he promised to fight the Trump administration.

Trump urges cops to be ‘rough’ in speech on MS-13 gang in L.I.

The basic tenets of that dream were fighting poverty, fighting for voter rights, fighting for criminal justice reform, as well as dealing with the critical issue of health, he said. Those are all threatened today.

Trumps comments, made during a speech in front of cops on Long Island, came as he called for a crackdown on MS-13 gang members.

Dont be too nice, the President encouraged a crowd of uniformed police officers.

When you guys put somebody in the car and youre protecting their head, like dont hit their head? They just killed somebody, dont hit their head? I said you can take their hand away, Trump said.

KING: Police brutality jumped racial fence with Minn. shooting

Sharpton railed against the comments Saturday, calling them a reckless disregard for the law, and set a tone that is dangerous and biased in this country.

He also took issue with Trumps use of the term paddywagon.

Gyalwang Drukpa agreed and compared the fight for justice and equality under the Trump administration to the oppression that Buddhists have faced in Tibet and the Himalayas.

You guys are talking about the marching, and that is such a beautiful, peaceful thing that we should do … for the purpose of justice, he said. And we, back in the Himalaya … have been doing the marching for kilometers and miles, thousands of miles across the Himalayan region. We walk for the peace and for the justice.

Rev. Al Sharpton calls Trump’s encouragement of police violence … – Washington Examiner

Rev. Al Sharpton spoke out against President Trump on Friday after he encouraged police to be more aggressive while arresting “thugs.”

“When you see these towns and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough, and I said, Please don’t be too nice,” Trump told police officers in New York on Friday.

Sharpton joined a chorus of other civil rights activists working to end police brutality by condemning the president’s comments and use of the term “paddy wagon.”

“Can you imagine if President Obama had made a racial slur?” Sharpton said during his keynote address at his National Action Network’s weekly rally on Saturday.

The slur, referring to a police car, dates back to the 19th century when Irish-Catholic refugees came to America. The word “paddy” has long been an offensive word used to describe Irishmen.

Al Sharpton Is Protesting Trump Over Anti-Irish Racial ‘Slur’ – The Daily Caller

Rev. Al Sharpton is protesting President Trump for using what he says is an anti-Irish racial slur in a speech on Friday, the civil rights leaders announced.

Paddy wagon is the term that offends Sharpton, a former Democratic presidential candidate. Trump used the term which refers to a police van during his remarks at an event honoring police officers in Brentwood, N.Y.

Sharpton is upset not just at what he says is an anti-Irish pejorative, he is also taking Trump to task for his advice to officers about how they should treat criminal suspects during arrests.

When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just seen them thrown in, rough. I said, Please dont be too nice,’ Trump said.

When you guys put somebody in the car and youre protecting their head you know, the way you put their hand over, Trump said, pointing to his head. Like, Dont hit their head and theyve just killed somebody, dont hit their head. I said, You can take the hand away, OK?’ he continued, as officers in the audience laughed and cheered.

Liberal activists said that Trump was condoning police violence. Trumps supporters said he was making a joke that is familiar to many police officers.

Ironically,Sharpton is not attending Saturdays protest with an Irish-American activist. Instead, he will join Gyalwang Drukpa, the Head of the Drukpa Lineage of Buddhist.
