The Millions March against police brutality took place yesterday in New York City, Washington D.C. and other cities across the country.
The nationwide protest demanded justice for unarmed black males killed by law enforcement, such as Michael Brown, Eric Garner and Tamir Rice.
According to the New York Daily News, one protest group broke off from the larger march in New York City and chanted, “What do we want? Dead Cops! When do we want it? Now!”
Today on "Fox & Friends," the morning show aired a clip of the Rev. Al Sharpton leading a rally in Washington D.C. with the caption, "Fueling The Flames" (video below).
In the clip, Rev. Sharpton led the familiar chant, "Hands up, don't shoot," but then Fox News suddenly cut to the New York City protesters yelling, "What do we want? Dead Cops! When do we want it? Now!” and then cut back to the Washington D.C. rally.
"We're not saying all police are bad," said Rev. Sharpton at the D.C. rally. "We're not even saying most are bad. We're not anti-police, but we're anti-brutality."
"Fox and Friends" co-host Tucker Carlson acted as if the two different rallies in New York City and Washington D.C. were the same, noted RawStory.com.
"Huh?" said Carlson. "So, the first clip, you heard people were saying, 'We want the cops dead,' and in the second we heard Al Sharpton say, 'We're not against the police.'"
Later in the segment, Carlson complained that police brutality was being linked to race.
“What I don’t think this is about is race, I don’t think these are examples of racism," added Carlson. "And I think it’s totally unhelpful to make this a conversation about white versus black. And it’s ridiculous to have it led by Al Sharpton, who has zero credibility at all, he’s a hustler, and I think a criminal.”
“Where is the same outrage about the destruction of the family, and where are moms and dads in the household trying to raise kids right?” said co-host Anna Kooiman. “Where’s the outrage about that? Or where’s the outrage when a police officer gets killed in the line of duty?”
