LET SHERIFF FALCO KNOW
RACISM WILL NOT
Sheriff Louis Falco III of Rockland County, NY, recently shared 6 posts on his public Facebook page that all depicted Black people committing terrible crimes.
The stories came from as long ago as 2013 and as far away as Georgia. How are they relevant to Rockland County here in 2020?
Whatever he may have intended in curating his scary story about Black people, Falco’s posts drew threats of violence against BIPOC from his thousands of followers. Comments left on his posts—such as “please bring back public hangings,” “shoot the perp, save the courts,” and “kill the bastards”—demonstrate the power of the Sheriff’s behavior to foster a culture of racism in our county.
This is unacceptable in a law enforcement leader, and we demand Sheriff Falco’s resignation. Join our coalition of concerned Rockland residents by adding your signature to our petition.
