Al Sharpton Wants Rapists and Torturers Roaming Your Neighborhood---NAACP and Sharpton Get Into It at Press Conference

“Nobody came for us,” the woman, 35, said in the interview with WPTV. “Nobody even called the police for us.”

"Our kids are incarcerated, they can't even get a bond and it's unconscionable what is happening." Maude Ford Lee, president of the West Palm Beach Chapter of the NAACP

The injustice Maude is talking about is that the State of Florida has recognized that individuals charged with a horrific rape and torture who come from a community that ignores rapes and tortures while the are in progress and then does not work with law enforcement to capture the rapists and torturers are IN JAIL... WHERE THEY BELONG! I won't relay the horrors of the facts about Dunbar Village, you can read about them here.

NAACP's "MISSION"

Maude Ford Lee, president of the West Palm Beach chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said she hoped Sharpton's presence would help expose the "injustice."
Now I believe the official word from the NAAC(m)P - National Association for the Advancement of Colored people back in August , we asked them why they wouldn't speak out on Dunbar Village, they said that THEY DON'T ADDRESS BLACK ON BLACK CRIME... IT'S NOT PART OF THEIR MISSION!

So I guess their MISSION as it relates to Black on Black crime is to offer unconditional support to the Black criminal while the Black victims of crime aren't worth the trouble.

Um maybe your kids are incarcerated without bond because they are Amoral, without a conscience and an extreme danger to the community. Lets be clear. Al Sharpton and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored people want the State of Florida to release violent torturers and rapists back into the community to hunt down you and your family members because some accused rapist in a completely different case in a completely different jurisdiction in front of a completely different judge got bond.

So What If the Accused Rapists and Torturers Go Free?
And let's say these juveniles do get free. In whose custody will they be released into? Hmmm? Will they be released into the custody of the parents that raised them to rape and torture people? Where will they stay? In Dunbar Village where they terrorized the residents the place where neighbors listen to their neighbors' scream for three hours while being tortured and sit back and do nothing?

Sharpton Stumps Out of the Press Conference in a Huff When NAACP Steps on His Toe

If you want to see what an absolute joke both the NAACP and the National Action Network are. Watch this video let it go to the end and you will see the petulance displayed by a fully grown man.

Sharpton abruptly left the press conference after local attorney Richard Keith Alan, upset that questions from reporters to Sharpton were centered on the election rather than Dunbar Village, interrupted Sharpton. Sun Sentinel
He would be embarrassed if he had any shame... we know he doesn't.

Folks, what we have here is what I like to call a "teachable moment." Now mind you, Al Sharpton had no problem issuing a statement on behalf of DOGS, without any fuss, but Black women and children, *crickets*(Maybe Black Women Should Be Pit Bulls in Our Next Life ---The Hypocrisy of Russell Simmons and Rev. Al).

If you disagree with Rev. Al and the National Association of (male) Colored People-Take Time to let People Know
If you disagree with Rev. Sharpton and the National Association for the Advancement of Male Colored People, please let the local media know that there are still Black people with commons ense who actually like to be protected from violent criminals. Also, you might discuss Rev. Sharpton's and the NAACP's previous silence in this case and point out their bufoonish behavior at the press conference today.

You are correct. This is insanity and if there was ever a more salient opportunity to practice some community accountability, this is it.

It is unacceptable that the NAACP would refuse to involve itself in the Dunbar Village rape case to support the victim, but is now intervening in defense of the rights of the brutal rapists in this case.

It is unacceptable that Al Sharpton should after pleas and entreaties, commit to help the residents of Dunbar Village, abandon them without any regard and then return to town to champion the rights of these criminals.

UNACCEPTABLE. And it should not stand.

Sharpton and the NAACP should be called to high level, public accounting for this outrageous behavior that demonstrates that as an organization they have clearly lost their way, their mission and their soul.

Every woman member in the NAACP should demand accountability. Every male member of the NAACP should demand accountability. And they should demand it now.

Darn, my "Sit Your Azz Down" list has grown so much in the past two days until I will have to wait until the weekend to post all of the new inductees.

Gina,

I wrote Michelle Malkin a short email detailing Sharpton's latest foolishness.

I would like to be a part of any blogging campaign that you or anyone else organizes.

I have been wandering around the web looking for info about Sharpton and the Jena Six for a speech I have to give in my college communications course; when I stumbled in here. I have to say, I love this blog! From the posts I have read so far, I am so glad to see that I am not alone! I would like to say however, that I have had some reservations about giving a speech on this topic because I am white. I intend to point out that being white should not disqualify me from the discussion. People like Shartpton have been very effective at keeping whites out of the discussion and too many whites fear speaking up against him for fear of being called racist. I think the only way any social problems to be solved is to work together, not against one another. Sharpton is served well by dividing us, I refuse to fall prey to him. I had no knowledge of the Dunbar Village rape case and I am just dumbstruck! thank you for your coverage and good work on this. I have subscribed and look forward to reading more.

Someone left a comment on my blog suggesting that we all agree to call into Sharpton's live radio show there at Radio One demanding he explain his actions this week. I think it's a great idea. Sounds like something all black women bloggers can agree on and urge our readers to do beginning next week. Flood Sharpton's show all week with calls from black women!!

Is anyone surprised he's taken this position? I'm not. I'm not even sure how relevant he is and I'm very unsure of how many people listen to him, follow his lead, or take him seriously.

But he does have a radio show, so I guess this has to be addressed. I think he's speaking to his audience and a lot of them really don't care anything about black women or our welfare and wellness.

I am beyond sick of the foolishness! I could not believe that Rev. Al fixed his lips to talk about justice for these criminals! What happened at Dunbar Village was one of the most heinous crimes I have ever heard of and still have diffulty sleeping at night as I think of the two victims. How dare he! If this happended to his daughters what would his response be? I am embarrassed that the NAACP and Rev have not addressed the severity of this crime. His office will hear from me this week.
