Cop-hating Black Lives Matter agitator Al Sharpton is throwing a fit and calling for a police crackdown in New York City now that the BLM crime wave he helped bring to fruition is affecting him personally.
The Rev. Al Sharpton is calling on New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a former police captain, to address the city’s spike in crime, calling the situation “out of control.”
“In fairness to Eric, he’s only been mayor five weeks,” Sharpton said Wednesday during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “But even as a fan of him: Eric, they’re locking up my toothpaste.”
Sharpton’s comment referred to reports that New York-area pharmacies and convenience stores have begun to place low-cost items, even toothpaste, in locked cases to prevent theft. Major crime increased 38.5 percent in January, Adams’ first month in office, compared to the same period last year, according to a NYPD report.
