STATEMENT BY REV. AL SHARPTON REGARDING NYPD OFFICER RANDOLPH HOLDER’S SISTER ASKING WHERE HE IS AT THIS MORNING’S COURT ARRAIGNMENT FOR THE SUSPECT WHO KILLED OFFICER HOLDER
(New York, NY) – – – “The murder of NYPD Officer Randolph Holder is an outrage to all of us, which is why I tweeted prayers and condolences to the family of Mr. Holder at 5:00 a.m. the morning after the shooting and why my staff attended the prayer vigil for him last night conducted by the Mayor’s Clergy Advisory Council. I also made calls yesterday attempting to visit the family. I am glad Mr. Holder’s sister asked where I am today and maybe she will facilitate my visiting the family and be a part of our vigil this weekend to memorialize a celebrated police officer who was killed by a menace to society. By all accounts, Officer Holder was a good man and a good police officer and we mourn his loss.”
My sincere prayers for the family of NYPD officer Randolph Holder killed in East Harlem last night. This must stop!
