The family of Walter Scott who was shot and killed last weekend by North Charleston, South Carolina police officer Michael Slager while thanking Al Sharpton for his condolences has banned the race baiter from the funeral.
A source close to the Scott family told The New York Daily News, “We don’t want another Ferguson type of circus here.”
The statement, clearly a reference to the chaos, violence and destruction that went on for months last year in Ferguson, St. Louis Missouri, after the shooting of 18 year old Michael Brown that had Sharpton’s name all over it, just two days before the funeral.
Ferguson businesses, in fact, the town itself has yet to recover from the damage done by Sharpton and outsiders (including Eric Holder and all at the orders of Barack Obama), who converged upon the town stoking the flames of hate and many of whom personally played a role in the riots, division and destruction of the town.
Sharpton’s response to being barred from the funeral: “They are in mourning and we would never come unless they asked…We’re willing to be helpful to the family but only when needed.”
Yeah, sure. Just two days ago, Sharpton from his bully pulpit in race baiter mode was ready to dive in.
In spite of the news that Slager had been arrested for the murder of Scott and fired by the North Charleston Police Department, Sharpton aka snitch aka Confidential Informant No. 7 aka shakedown artist who owes more than $4 million in taxes began his National Action Network convention by calling for a nationalized police force.
‘There must be national policy and national law on policing,’ Mr. Sharpton said. “We can’t go from state to state, we’ve got to have national law to protect people against these continued questions….
We commend them, but we cannot have a justice system that hopes we have a mayor in the right city or a police chief’”he said. ‘We have to have one policy that is national….’
Translation: Regardless of how state and local law enforcement handles these matters, a Stasi police state is the only thing Sharpton, Holder and Obama will stand for.
A federal police force is after all the real agenda, not the loss of Black lives that for Progressives is nothing more than a tool for the disempowerment of law enforcement at the state level.
Imagine the increase in the number of dead Americans that is bound to occur if a Stasi police state is implemented.
Back in December of 2015, the family of Akai Gurley, a young man shot and killed in when a rookie a police officer fired into a darkened stairwell of a New York City Housing project barred Sharpton from their son’s funeral.
Sharpton and his National Action had sent the family of Akai Gurley an invoice for a eulogy Sharpton intended to deliver at their funeral even though he had never once placed a phone call to the parents of the deceased.
Earlier this year, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas also released an expose (video) wherein the families and attorneys of Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and Michael Brown expressed their opinions that Sharpton “a shakedown guy” is “all about the money” “excites people for the wrong reasons.” Personal reasons being self-enrichment.
