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.

Rev Al needs to get a real job. He could start by acting like a real Reverend.

Al Sharpton just fuels the fire of racism. Instead of blaming white people for everything, why doesn't he encourage resect of the system? Why doesn't he start preaching about personal responsibility? Education? working hard to achieve success? Why doesn't he get his rapper celebrity friends to start cleaning up the lyrics in their "music" and start acting like positive role models. Start teaching the youth about "giving" back instead of "taking" what they feel they are entitled to.
The world would be a better place if he would start preacing a positve message instead of encouraging racism and hatred.

Hey Al, you race-bating POS: What about the other 11,000 blacks that were killed by blacks in the time between Trayvon's death this verdict?

Are we back to the 50 and 60's? This piece of crap is taking us back instead of forward. We relivedthe60...'s with the OWS protests now this. Now the kids are using drugs and the 60druggies are running the country. What a "Slap in the Face" to Dr. King.

Sharpton's limousine in that video is an indication that although unethical and despicable, race baiting pays off for him.
