Jul 16, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: CBS News

Civil rights activist Rev. Al Sharpton said the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin was "the decision of the jury," but argued the "Stand Your Ground" law is "scary" and has "rendered us vulnerable to all kinds of attacks in this country."

What are they fighting for? I don't guess I understand. Justice for Trayvon? What could we get him on that's not double jeopardy? There's not much they can do about that. If they are ready to fight the law that says you can shoot someone after starting a fight with them. When the law protect this guy's actions after a dispatcher told him he didn't need to follow him.

Nothing wrong with that Better that crack smoking , dope dealing ghetto dwellers that kill thousands every year. Al should address that, rather than a verdict that is unpopular with ghetto people .

Al only gets involved in events , real or imaginary, that will make money and keep racism alive Martin Luther King would have abhorred Sharpton and that other race hustler , Jackson . Jackson is a bit quieter now that his boy, Jessie JR is a felon like most blacks.

Once in a while he can't help himself and come up with some bigoted bs jut to keep the racist in him going

Al would take that as a compliment. He's one of the few people who lost a ton of weight and kept it off for years.
