Breaking news: Sun rises in the east and Al Sharpton comments on Zimmerman trial
Aren't people bored with how predictable this guy is?
The Rev. Al Sharpton said Sunday that "clearly there are grounds for civil rights charges" after George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who killed Trayvon Martin was found not guilty of second-degree murder in Florida.
Sharpton said that he and Martins' family met with a U.S. attorney and that legal options had not been exhausted.
"The trial happened. The verdict came in. It does not exhaust the legal options of this family and the bigger community issues of civil rights," Sharpton said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "We now have a position on the books in the state of Florida where an unarmed teenager who committed no crime can be killed and the killer can say self defense."
The outcome of the trial, which ignited a broad debate on race relations in America, should make parents fearful, Sharpton said.
"Every American ought to be afraid that my child can do nothing wrong and can be killed," he said.
"Nothing wrong"? Oh well, where Sharpton is concerned, the facts don't matter anyway.
Why does the national media continue to give his despicable man a platform from which to spout his poisonous rants? To be fair, they should invite a representative of the Klu Klux Klan to debate him. I would say the moral equivalency of bringing in a white racist to debate a black one is the definition of "equal time."
