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.

I love all the gang-bangin' pictures of Trayvon Martin on the interweb. Especially the ones of him smoking dope. My favorites are the ones where he does the gang signs, you know, with the gold teeth showing.

What a sweet kid he was.

Al Sharpton is the most hypocritical racist in U.S. I am mad at myself for being one of his biggest fans on MSNBC not realizing till now that I had been a fan of a racist bigot jerk.

Well Rev Al, unless it perpetuates racism, you are no where to be found. Where is the outrage because a 1 yr old baby was shot dead in his stroller by a black teenager? Where is the outrage when 12 people are killed July 4th in Chicago? Doesn't fit his agenda. When will the words respect your parents, respect yourself, don't call your women ho's, don't call your friends the "N" word, because it's not right no matter who says it? We wont hear them, because they don't represent the hate he represents.
