Sharpton 'Big Apple' family values

As a minister, Al Sharpton should recognize Matthew 7:16, in which it is written: "Ye shall know them by their fruits."  To utilize a more colloquial expression for laymen: "one is evaluated by the results of his or her actions."  In the case of the Sharpton family tree, the spoiled fruit does not fall from the parental stump.  Specifically, with Mr. Sharpton's own unresolved multi-million-dollar tax evasion issues with the U.S. government, one wonders what the de facto (and unfortunately default) voice of violent minority racial unrest – sent by President Obama first to Ferguson, MO and more recently to Baltimore, MD – would think of his daughter's own recent shenanigans. 

Dominique Sharpton, 29, has been ordered by New York City lawyers not to delete Instagram photos of a recent Nevada Red Rock Canyon hiking trip in response to a $5-million frivolous lawsuit filed against the Big Apple (no pun there) for "permanent pain and mental anguish" for supposed injuries she blames on an uneven Soho sidewalk.  You heard that right: a whopping 5 mil for tripping, for which she apparently bears no individual responsibility whatsoever regarding the movement of her own feet.

Through her attorney, Ms. Sharpton insists that last October's incident caused "multiple ligament and tendon tears in her ankle."  Apparently her injuries were not sufficient to prevent Ms. Sharpton – who has a penchant for world travel to exotic locales – from also actively participating in a rigorous Indonesian mountain hiking excursion.  No doubt maintaining Ms. Sharpton's jet-set lifestyle is expensive.  Indeed, a seven-figure payout would be very useful in covering the ongoing costs.  (Hence Ms. Sharpton's fallacious assertion of loss of "quality of life [due to] future pain and suffering, future medical bills [and the] future diminution of income.")  She has a point: taking lots of 5-star vacations does inherently deplete one's bank account and future earning potential.

To that end, naturally, Ms. Sharpton feels entitled to a large settlement – money paid by others: in this case hard-working, taxpaying New York residents – to cover accrued leisure expenses.  Similarly, Al Sharpton fleeces his fellow citizens through continued nonpayment of taxes reportedly owed in excess of $4 million.  Father needs four; daughter wants five.  By doing the math, that's enough to help Daddy out in a pinch, with plenty left over to be footloose and fancy-free (if one is mindful of public walkways, that is). 

Undoubtedly, Dominique Sharpton is the apple of her father's eye.
