Sharpton Plans National Protests

Al Sharpton SC Sharpton Plans National Protests

The Rev. Al Sharpton is calling for a “Justice for Trayvon National Day of Action” on Saturday and say demonstrations are planned in more than 100 cities nationwide.

Saying there would not have been a trial in Florida without pressure from activists, Sharpton was confident that continued pressure would result in a federal civil rights case.

“When they’re telling you today, ‘I don’t know if they’re going to get a civil rights trial:’ We will. And we will get a civil trial,” Sharpton said on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show” on Monday morning. “What we’ve watched the last several weeks was not the system correcting itself, it was the people correcting the system. Now we’ve got to finish the job.”

National Action Network is organizing the protests at federal court buildings to press the Justice Department to bring a civil rights case against George Zimmerman, who was found not guilty in the death of teenager Trayvon Martin by a Florida jury on Saturday.

Sharpton said his National Action Network intends to keep the pressure on until a civil rights case is brought, insisting the protests will show the national anger over the verdict is not a “two- or three-day” thing.

  4. Sharpton is a total moron and idiot and he LOVES to stir up racial problems (and, he is NOT a Christian man – if he was, he would not be continually stirring the racial pot). Sharpton = NOT a Christian!! One of these days someone will slap a lawsuit against him and drain his bank book of everything he has (I hope that occurs soon). What a racist pig he is!!
