Al Sharpton on Zimmerman

We Won't Stop

Until Justice Is Served

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.

A vice both obscene and unsavoury,
Holds the Reverend Sharpton in slavery.
With lascivious howls,
He deflowers young owls,
That he lures to his underground aviary.

backfire    

The difference was the jury for OJ was out for a measly three hours and with tons of DNA evidence they overlooked, found him innocient....also, he never paid anything to any of the families of the people he slashed to death.

This whole trial was a cluster****. So much damning evidence was not admitted against both parties, which I am sure will come out very soon.

Both TM and GZ were culpable. Zimmerman at the least should not be allowed to carry a gun or given probation. Did the state ask for a mental evaluation on Zimmerman? I saw nothing about that.

I am just not exactly sure what he should have been declared guilty of, neither are innocent in this case.
But I do know, if Zimmerman had just gone to Target to get his damned lunchmeat, this would not have happened.

Usually people look healthier when they lose a lot of weight but he looks sicker. He used to always look robust even when he was portly. Now he looks like someone who is wasting away.

Jesus came to bring life and life more abundantly. If he is really a reverend following Jesus, he should show some signs of it. He is not looking strong or courageous or full of life. He looks like something evil is devouring him.


Sometimes idealists get carried away with their ideals and lose side of the goal, which is heaven.

Why anyone listens to Al Sharpton is beyond me - if he wants to see a racist, all he has to do is look in the mirror.

It's Me    

Whether you agree with the verdict or not he was found not guilty by a jury. Accept it and move on already. You weren't there that night and you also weren't there to hear ALL of the evidence presented in court. If someone was sitting on me and banging my head into concrete and I could get to a gun I'd shoot them too.

HOw about getting mad about all of the other Murders of all kinds! So many Gang slayings & Black on Black murders. Get angry about that instead of being so angry about this ONE crime that went through the legal system and Florida's Laws allowed this to happen. Blame the prosecution for putting up a bad case presentation. What a Bufoon!

Al Sharpton is ALWAYS wrong. Tawana Brawley LIED. The Duke Lacrosse accuser LIED! Sharpton is a race-baiter who hates whites, and apparently now (with Zimmerman) Hispanics. He is the reason that this case even went to trial. This case should never have been brought to trial to begin with. Sharpton and Jackson earn a living diving people by race and they are the true racists.
