Al Sharpton hurled accusations Saturday against the Ferguson, Mo,. police chief — and linked the killing of Brown by a Missouri cop to the choke-hold death of Garner at the hands of an NYPD officer.
“It’s the epitome of an insult to the people of this country that law enforcement smear a young man before we can even bury him,” Sharpton said of 18-year-old Brown at the National Action Network headquarters in Harlem.
“They did the same thing to Eric Garner. The first thing they did was try to put out Eric’s record.”
