Anti-police protesters in New York City were recently captured on video seemingly chanting for “dead cops” while protesting a number of police-involved killings, including the deaths of Eric Garner and 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
“What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!" the protesters appear to chant in a video uploaded on YouTube Saturday.
Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., responded to the dangerous rhetoric on Monday, reminding protesters of what her uncle preached throughout the civil rights movement. Most of the teachings her family has always lived by are from Jesus Christ and Gandhi, she said.
"Dead cops are not going to set anybody free,” she said. “My uncle would certainly encourage people to be peaceful. That's just rabble-rousing."
King argued “evil” can always be defeated by “good.”
She added, "We don't want to be killed in the streets — no. But this is not the way to get our answers and our solutions."
