Al Sharpton: Trump ‘Challenged China on Human Rights, Well, What About the Human Right of George Floyd?’

‘The signals that we are sending is that if you are in law enforcement, that the law doesn’t apply to you’

EXCERPT:

SHARPTON: “The President talks about bringing in the military, but he has not said one word about 8 minutes and 46 seconds of police murder of George Floyd. He said the family has my sympathy and all of this. He didn’t give those on other situations the sympathy. He challenged China on human rights. Well, what about the human right of George Floyd?

(Applause)

The signals that we are sending is that if you are in law enforcement, that the law doesn’t apply to you. And I’m telling you that the law ought to especially apply to you, because you are giving special powers that others don’t have. We don’t have a badge representing the state. We don't have a gun we're carrying. We have not gone through training. We should expect more from you.”
