Earlier this week, two police officers were shot in Ferguson, Missouri during a protest outside the police station. Reacting to the crime on MSNBC, Reverend Al Sharpton said no one in his organization would “condone” shooting policemen. Mark Finkelstein at newsbusters.org called that “…awfully weak sauce. How about condemning it?” Is he splitting hairs? Or are the people claiming that racist killers are on the loose – organizers and protestors who were wrong in the Trayvon Martin case and wrong in the Michael Brown case – fanning the flames of racial hatred, making it more dangerous for law enforcement?
