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.

Ol' Al would have great difficulty in Zimbawe, Uganda, or South Sudan, where nearly everyone is African. Which black guy do you defend? That's when the ideology bigots come out and oppress those of the minority opinion. It's the same in this case, but in the USA our racial "differences" are easy to use for an ideology agenda.

He is one of the biggest reasons that there is a racial problem. He only pops up when there is a black youth or black person involved! Sit down shut up and take Jessie with you! Period. Another media whore, just like Jesse and that Thomas Masters Guy. Only when it suits them for the publicity. What about when OJ killed his wife and her friend.

So Al Sharpton is anti-American? The American system lets a jury decide things like this. Was he crying when OJ was found not guilty? If you don't like the outcome Al maybe you should try changing the system. Anything that happens now would be double jeopardy anyway.

Let me add; George Zimmerman looks hispanic. If you were to give a description of him after seeing him in broad daylight, I defy anyone to say he looks white.

And lest anyone forget, he IS black. His great grandma is a black woman. And he's Peruvian.

I am a DEM and so is Al. That said, if this was a young white boy, Al wouldn't be stating all this. The FACTS in EVIDENCE show that George was beaten up with his head bleeding all over the place. This was self defense NO MATTER IF THE DECEASED is a black boy or not. What he was is a thug. I am delighted to see that in the USA we have the right to defend ourselves. It's back!

blaks wont consider justice served until all wites are rounded up and lynched and all blaks are paid reparations for the rest of their species' lives. plus blaks will want to be paid for each new blak cub that is born. just watch. they will always want more. didn't they say "all we ever wanted was for a jury to be heard"? now what are they saying? "that cracka jury is racist!" trayvon's bro is still alive so next time a wite man asks him for his papers he had better show them or suffer dire consequences...

Al, Jesse, Why don't you help your son that stole millions of dollars from the people off Chicago and stop living off of people like the Martins! You guys ought to be ashamed of yourselves, It has nothing to do with race until it serves your purpose. Please just GO AWAY.

White Republican racists are the ONLY ones that use the term "race-baiting". You will not hear it from anyone else.
