NYC Police Commissioner Sharpton
Some officers in the, NYPD, upset at Al Sharpton's involvement in civil rights issues brought against the department, mock him in a fake New York City Police Commissioner ID. The photo which has been making its rounds, was created as an insult to Sharpton. Many police officers are not happy with his influence over New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. Especially after the choke hold case in which Officer Daniel Panatleo used an illegal choke hold resulting in a civilian death. Sharpton gave his own opinion to real Ploice Commissioner Bill Bratton on the conduct of officers in the street during a recent press conference. When Commissioner Bratton stated he would retrain 20,000 cops, Sharpton added that it would be best to use Pantaleo to talk the officers about not using the illegal chokelhold. SInce then, this photo has been e-mailed and put on Twitter, mocking Sharpton's opinion and invovlement.
