    On The Road With Reverend Al Sharpton's Lynch Mob

    Justice Department Opens Investigation Into Trayvon Martin Case

    Rev. Al Sharpton seeks investigation into Florida’s so-called “Stand Your Ground” law, which he says encourages vigilante justice and other killings such as that of the 17-year-old.

    Contrary to what white conservatives say, liberals do not all act or think alike when racially based accusations in the media raise their ugly heads.

    From what I've been told is a lefty/progressive and liberal rag: A troubling story about Al Sharpton. - Slate Magazine (yes liberal rags print negative stories about lefty, progressive, and liberal candidates)

    The Worst of Al Sharpton
    A troubling tale from his past. Is it true?

    Sharpton then accused a local police cult with ties to the Irish Republican Army of perpetrating the alleged assault. The case fizzled when a security guard for Brawley's lawyers testified that the lawyers and Sharpton knew Brawley was lying.

    It's not a right/left issue. It's not always a black/white issue. It's one of hysteria and the lynch mob mentality of the populist crowd. It is examples like this that had America's founding fathers consider a direct democracy and throw that idea into the toilet. We have a representative republic form of government. Our democratic politics might be messy, but our government structure helps put the brakes on the process, to keep our (the people's) mob impulses in check. Justice is blind, and we help her by slowing down the demands of the lynch mobs.

    I don't consider myself a racist... and I actually like Sharpton...

    but when he does shit like this and gets traction among the black folks, my initial reaction is "jesus fuckin' christ... you goddamm dumbshit jiggaboos let the wool get pulled over your eyes once again...!"

    So blacks reading about this shooting had to wait for Sharton to speak before they formed an opinion? We are so unintelligent that our opinions have to be formed for us?

    AL can be entertaining. At the 2004 Democratic convention (where I had great access) Sharpton and Jerry Springer drew huge crowds among the delegates in hotel lobbies and in the streets. Popularity and fame are fine.

    Sharpton never got more than a handful of votes. Springer never ran. too bad -- he would have made a good Senator

    People black, white and other, usually need to wait for INFORMATION, IN ORDER to form intelligent and informed opinions.

    go fuck off. play games with somebody else.

    The real story is why this story took so long to get national attention.

    Even more importantly, why is that murdering racist walking around free when he needs to be behind bars on charges of murder in the first degree.

    I'm surprised that Jackson and Sharpton are going down there to mouth off about this mess cause there were no white people involved.
