Prof. Norman Rosenbaum has reached out to conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh to offer assistance in the war of words over Al Sharpton‘s role in a string of violent Crown Heights riots in the early 90’s.
Rosenbaum is the crusading brother of Yankel Rosenbaum HY”D, who was murdered by black teen rioter Lemrick Nelson on the first night of the Crown Heights pogrom. Nelson was acquitted by an all-black jury despite airtight and incontrovertible evidence.
Rosenbaum is sending Limbaugh a copy of the Girgenti Report, which clearly lists Sharpton’s criminal and inciteful actions during and after the pogrom. The Report is named after its author, former New York government official Richard Girgenti, whose report many felt didn’t go far enough in condemning Sharpton.
Speaking from Melbourne, Rosenbaum said:
“My family and I are ready, willing and able to assist Mr Limbaugh in whatever way we can in his defense of any law suit that Sharpton files.”
Mr Rosenbaum particularly mentioned the various media clips, electronic and printed, he retains which reported the Riots while ongoing for four days, and the media coverage which went on for years after while his family pursued Justice for Yankel. He specifically referred to the Investigation and Report into the Riots by then New York State Director for Criminal Justice Richard Girgenti.
“All this and more will be available to Mr Limbaugh” said Mr Rosenbaum.
Mr Rosenbaum said he welcomed the day Al Sharpton would be subjected to cross examination under oath about the Riots.
In his communication, Prof. Rosenbaum has also asked Mr. Limbaugh to contact noted activist Isaac Abraham in New York, to see to the possibility that Mr. Rosenbaum will travel to New York to meet Limbaugh personally.
