Al Sharpton on Zimmerman

We Won't Stop

Until Justice Is Served

EXCLUSIVE

071413_al_sharpton_launch
A battle was lost, but the war's not over ... Al Sharpton says he WILL NOT REST until justice is served for Trayvon Martin's death -- after yesterday's not guilty verdict for the man who pulled the trigger.

Our photog spotted Rev. Sharpton at LaGuardia Airport Sunday -- and asked if he was disappointed that 6 jurors acquitted Zimmerman of all charges. His answer ... a resounding YES.

However, Al says this is not the end ... "We always had a plan B. We now go to the Justice Department seeking civil rights charges." He adds, "We're not gonna stop until we get justice."

FYI -- a similar thing happened in the O.J. Simpson trial regarding the death of Nicole Brown Simpson. O.J. was acquitted of criminal charges, but then sued in civil court for wrongful death -- and ordered to pay $33.5 million to the families of NBS and Ronald Goldman.

Zimmerman could face a similar civil suit OR possibly be tried in federal court if the Justice Department decides to go through with criminal civil rights charges.

There were over 500 murders in Chicago last year. Maybe you should work on getting justice for those people.

How this guy made it out with any reputation intact after the Tawana Brawley scam 26 years ago still amazes me, and yet this charlatan is still at it, more famous and visible than ever...

Give it a rest Al. This case should have never been brought before a judge anyway. It wasn't until the NCAACP cried foul that Zimmerman was arrested. Had he been black it would have been an open & shut case of self defense. Call this what it REALLY is: Reverse Racism!!!

He is right I live in Florda and have a gun permit have not felt the need to shoot and kill a teenager. Yes I have been in heated conversations with teenagers still did not feel the need to kill them it just was not necessary.
I hope Omara the attorney chokes on the money he made Omara is a S****bag just like Zimmerman.
I am white, just don't kill a kid because of the color of their skin and the clothes they wear, think about it..
FYI I almost never agree with Sharpton
