    Is everyone getting tired of seeing Al Sharpton all over the media coverage of the Trayvon Martin case. He alone has stirred up more anger from both sides of the tragedy. I just think people like him should not be allowed a microphone or televised coverage in such cases. Maybe someone should file a restraining order to keep him 100 yards away from all TV cameras. lol

    But seriously, could that be done?

    If an action has occurred and Sharpton is involved then you can bet your paycheck it has gone too far.

    What surprises Me is...

    ...that the Reverend Jesse Jackson is eerily missing from this scene. Have you seen him or heard his deep southern drawl?

    As for the Reverend Al, he never seems to go any further than his first class airline tickets takes him. :laugh:

    You can bet, where there are a racial issue's brewing, Al, and Jesse, and now Barry (Obama) pop up!!! It's good for their image, and ego, and personal prestige, and checkbook?

    MSNBC should be ashamed they have him as a commentator. Instead they probably told him to go down to Florida to flame the fire. This is getting real sad. I hope they don't burn down cities because of this.

    You know that the most dangerous place in the world is between Al Sharpton and any microphone. :laugh:

    I haven't listened to anything he said because he lost credibility with me a long time ago.

    What was needed, which was to have people without a personal stake in it (due to possible friendships/relationships with the family) out of it and have it investigated from what people can believe is a non-biased perspective, so while it's good for those involved in the current investigation to know people are paying attention, it's time to chill and let them do just that. Nobody needs Al Sharpton for that. While they're at the investigation, a separate one needs to be formed to investigate the Black Panthers, just like they'd keep an eye on any terrorist group that threatened any of our citizens. At this point, I'm surprised Zimmerman doesn't WANT to be in protective custody, whether he believes he's innocent or not.

    He can't (or won't) "connect the dots".

    Bloodshed and violence follow after him.

    By their fruits...

    Sharpton's just drumming up business. If the racial tension pot wasn't simmering, he would fade into obscurity.

    Al Sharpton is a Martin Luther wanna B. He's just a vulture circling this thing to get attention.....and succeeded. The President gave him a high five with a public response to the situation too.

    This morning our pastor actually started talking about Al Sharpton without mentioning him by name. He said that anyone who calls himself a reverend and addresses issues like what's been in the news with bigotry and blatant racism should be ashamed. He said that if someone was shot in our town he wouldn't be on the news or leading marches, but would be praying for the people involved and that the justice system would work properly.

    Many liberal leaders have gone on record in this case expressing illogical, unethical and illegal views. What is wrong with people today? Do they want to suspend the rule of law? Do they want everyone to have no respect for the police or any law enforcement officers or organizations anywhere? Do they want every black who might have committed a crime against a white arrested on sight and thrown into jail until the courts can determine his guilt, no matter what the police might or might not have found in investigation? Or do they just want the rights of whites suspended if a lynch mob deems those rights should be denied to whoever they want those rights denied?

    Obama and other black and white liberal leaders show their lack of knowledge of or respect for the rule of law in this case, which is a sad indictment of the degenerating condition of American leadership today.
