Reverend Sharpton Goes There: "... what happened to Tyre is so personal to me..."

...what happened to Tyre is so personal to me is that five Black men that wouldnít have had a job in the police department - would not ever be thought of to be in the elite squad - in the city that Dr. King lost his life, not far away from that balcony, you beat a Brother to death.

Thereís nothing more insulting and offensive to those of us that fight to open doors, that you walk through those doors and act like the folks we had to fight to get you through them doors.

You didnít get on the police department by yourself. The police chief didnít get there by herself. People had to march and go to jail and some lost their lives to open the doors for you and how dare you act like that sacrifice was for nothing?

3. Wow. The cops betrayed the same people who got them their jobs.

The people who went through hell to make it possible for them to work for the police department.
