Mr. Sharpton is acting like any other business man who needs to promote.
If he were blue he would promote blue people. Twana Brawley was an
opportunity, he took it. It backfired a bit yet didn't divert him. He has
admitted to say, "Whatever it takes to promote, I will do." What person
devoted to a cause wouldn't do the same? His somewhat questionable
education doesn't mean he's not dedicated. Misguided perhaps by the
ribbons of his thoughts. Yet a shark when he senses opportunity. He
and Jesse J ride in the canoe.
Al Sharpton is one of the leading racists in this country. It is in his personal brand and without racial tension he is out of business. Not a smart man but he can be glib. It is a tragedy that this happened but when all the facts are in judgement can be made.Until then there was no reasonable excuse to use this incident as a looting opportunity. If the officer killed the man when he could have restrained him without risking his own life he should be punished to the extent of the law. If his life was in peril then the act while unfortunate is legitimate self defense. I do not think the Police have handled the post incident situation good at all.
