Picture of the Day: NYPD cop shot while beating young black man

The entire caption, borrowed from the website of LU friend Allen B. West (which is also the source of the photo), reads “NYPD officer shot beating a young black man while another NYPD officer looks on. Mayor Bill de Blasio vows to investigate and punish the officer.”

It sure sounds like a job for Sharpton Man. If the reverend was provoked into convening an “emergency task force” over the “failure” of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to sing sufficient hosannas to the film “Selma” (which the academy did nominate for Best Picture), then this latest incident of racist New York cops behaving badly is worthy of at least one (if not two) bridge closures.

The only problem is the picture:

Then again, Sharpton’s a pretty imaginative guy. Surely, he can make a case for racism even when the combatants are a couple of chess players, one of whom happens to be a person of color.
