Al Sharpton: George Zimmerman Verdict ‘An Atrocity’


sharpton1[Video below.] The always disgraceful Al Sharpton called George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the killing of Trayvon Martin an “atrocity.”

Zimmerman was found not guilty last night. Sharpton, who served as both pundit and as an ally of Martin’s family throughout the case, condemned the verdict.

“I think that this is an atrocity,” he said. “It is probably one of the worst situations that I have seen.”

He continued:

“What this jury has done is establish a precedent that when you are young and fit a certain profile, you can be committing no crime … and be killed and someone can claim self-defense … we had to march to even get a trial and even at trial, when he’s exposed over and over again as a liar, he is acquitted.”

Sharpton also called it “a sad day in the country” and “a slap in the face to those that believe in justice in this country.”

  1. I’m glad the judge and the jury didn’t have the same definition of justice as Sharpton.
    Sharpton is abusing the word to mean populist lynching. He is promoting the belief that a person of his color is entitled to absolute protection regardless of the danger he presents and the damage he does. That is not justice nor equality before the law.

  2. Youssef Hawkins, Tawana Brawley, Freddy’s, Sharpton’s tax evasion!!
    “THIS” eas the worst??? You’re so irrelevant it’s not even funny!

  3. If zimmerman that was acquitted was the black one, then El-Sharpton would had declare a holiday for justice. But since it’s the other way, he see a slap in the face. what a phony.

  4. Sharpton is the biggest racist in the country. He refuses to allow black people to have equal treatment with his double standards. Even if the boy had a gun and was shooting at Zimmerman, Sharpton would declare this an outrage because the boy was black. In my book, race should never play a role, in either direction!

  5. let’s not forget Sharpton’s part in the Tawana Brawley case many years ago – and he is going to say who is guilty and who isn’t?!
