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.

Zimmerman was given back his gun today. Maybe Al will visit his neighborhood and he can seek justice for all of us and off Sharpton.

Nah    

I won't comment on Al Sharpton....I will comment on that Civil Suit and impeding depression that is coming Zimmerman's way! I dare somebody to say that Martin's family would be wrong for bringing up a civil suit! He needs to pay some type of way and what better way than to bankrupt his low-life unapologetic ass for the rest of his life...He's only free in a literal sense. Everything happens for a reason and God has something bigger planned.

Lesson to all the black and white kids out there: never pick a fight with an armed man.

I get real angry at STUPID remarks .Just once,having your head pounded on the cement can cause a "blood clot" lose of eyesight.in the future.Hillary Clinton can tell you what a hit on the head will do,at the time or in the future,and I sure would NOT be looking for a white person,,if the complex robberies,were committed by black youths.WHY did Trayvon NOT hang up on his friend and dial 911,if he felt a '"CRACKER" was following him.?

In 2011, 91% of black killed were killed by fellow black. 83% of white killed were killed by fellow white. You can go on the FBI site and download the statistics yourself.

Details?    

Like my name, I will check the details with you....
Person A is a male, approximately 5'11. He is roaming through yards at night.

Person B is on neighbor hood watch, in a community that has had several break ins.

Person B sees person A, becomes suspicious, (like, What is that dude up too?... He has his face covered so as not to be seen.... Aha! He might be a criminal)
Person B follows person A and calls the police to report a suspicious person.
Person A confronts Person B violently, person A shots person A.

How is it OK with anyone that this has become a racial incident, or hate crime. WTF is wrong with some of you?

It's over... On Simpson had assets to go after and Zimmerman has nothing. All he has to do is transfer any assets he has to his wife's name and be a stay at home husband/father. There is no point in him going to work because everything will be garnished
