(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Professional race-peddler Al Sharpton has made a startlingly reasonable and hilarious statement about the looting that has become a chronic issue in America’s larger cities, Louder with Crowder reported.
“We cannot have a culture where people are just, at random, robbing and stealing… and is put on the front page of newspapers because it only encourages others to do it,” Sharpton said. “In fairness to Eric, he’s only been mayor five weeks, but even as a fan of Eric, they’re locking up my toothpaste.”
“I mean, we’re talking about basic stuff here. I’m like, what did I miss that now we have to lock up toothpaste?”
Adams did respond to these comments, poorly:
“The people who say where’s our real black leaders, they’re going to say ‘who’s Eric; why does Eric think he should be our leader?’ Well, negro, you run,” the mayor said. “Every day in the police department, I kicked those crackers a**.”
Crime has risen by 42% since Adams took office, and the new mayor has made no significant movies to stymie this new wave of crime.
Not only is this affecting Sharpton’s ability to get toothpaste in a timely manner, it is also showcasing the consequences of turning felonies into misdemeanors and transforming cities into safe havens for criminals.
People of all political persuasions responded to these comments on Twitter, mostly surprised that it only took this small inconvenience for Sharpton to care about crime:
Income inequality has surpassed the Gilded Age and jumped straight to the days of the Pharaohs, but for f**k’s sake, let’s focus on the real problem here. Al Sharpton’s toothpaste is behind a glass counter. https://t.co/o7nzSTEK79

I was in New York City over the past summer and at Walgreens near Times Square I saw a man stuffing a backpack with stuff in one of the medicine areas.
I told the cashier about it and she said they aren’t allowed to approach anyone.
Crime is much easier, then doing what’s right

Who knew all you had to do was lock up Al’s tooth paste for him to be bothered by crime?
