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.

It is a tragedy for Trayvon that the pathology report will forever report and his legacy will forever be "unremarkable penis".

Al Sharleton thrives on racial division, he won't be satisfied until he starts a full on race war.

LMFAO The Justice Department has been involved with this all along. They even helped organize protests. So yeah, let's explore this further. Obama and Holder are the ones that are going to get investigated.

This guy is pure trash. He is a racist, hates white people, never once defended tried to find justice for the death of a white person and he calls himself a Reverand. He's garbage. Troublemaking garbage and someday he will have to answer to higher power.

Sharpton is just a shill for those who seek to destroy this country from within. When was the last time you saw this POS do anything to promote harmony among the races?
