The Funeral of NYPD Officer Holder- Police Union Heads still don’t get it!

As a national organization of Law Enforcement officers, we are sadden by the lost of life of NYPD Officer Randolph Holder.

As Black Law Enforcement Professionals we salute the Holder family as they pledge not to let the lost of their son to go in vain and use his life as a torchlight to build better police and community relations.

As officers and members of Blacks in Law Enforcement of America, we pledge our time and talent to continue to build better relations in the name of officer Holder and many other victims of gun violence.

It is unfortunate that police union heads are critical of the grieving families wishes to have certain community leaders speak and be present at the funeral of Officer Holder. When did we start allowing police union bosses like Pat Lynch to dictate who can or cannot attend a funeral of a slain police officers family?

As Black Law Enforcement Professionals, we thank Al Sharpton for his continuing service and taking the high road when police union bosses like Pat Lynch and others unsympathetic criticism of a grieving police officers families wishes, clearly shows that their leadership is still unwilling, unwanting and far removed from protecting and serving the communities of color in New York City.

Petition to Boycott the NFL and Sponsors for Refusing to sign Colin Kaepernick

We are asking all Black Law Enforcement Organizations, civil rights organizations, grass root organizations to do the same.  PLEASE SIGN HERE  

 

 

“What does it say about the NFL, and about us, when at least a half-dozen men who have been accused of physical or sexual assault have been welcomed into the NFL over the past week, while Colin Kaepernick still has not?

While some NFL teams were busy drafting names from the police blotter last weekend, Kaepernick was standing outside a New York City parole office, handing out two boxes of his own custom-made suits to men who needed them for upcoming job interviews. He has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to charity. In March, it was reported by several news media outlets, including USA TODAY Sports, that Kaepernick will not protest the national anthem this coming season. And yet he’s still a free agent, so far unwanted by all 32 NFL teams.

 

The NFL is also broadcasting a message to Black people throughout the world that Black issues do not matter. It is uncommon that our children see athletes standing up for issues in their communities, especially for the many black men that have been unjustly killed by Law Enforcement.

As conscious Black People, we must send the same message to the NFL and their Sponsors that our dollars matter by boycotting the NFL and their products for basically punishing Kaepernick for his position on social justice issues.

We are asking all Black Law Enforcement Organizations, civil rights organizations, grass root organizations to do the same.  PLEASE SIGN HERE
