Turner Clayton, the Seminole County chapter president of the NAACP, reacted immediately to Sharpton’s warning, saying, “We hope that the citizens of Sanford will govern themselves accordingly. We are not calling for any sanctions, against any business or anyone else. And, of course, what Rev. Sharpton does, that’s strictly the [National] Action Network. We can’t condone that part of the conversation, if that’s what he said.” Read the full article here.
Once again Sharpton is stirring up racial trouble in a time when we should be preaching peace. A tragedy occurred, a young man lost his life, yes he was a juvenile delinquent, but that is no reason he should have lost his life. I am not saying George Zimmerman committed a crime, that is for a court of law to say. And that is the exact opposite of what people like Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Bobby Rush, and even Nancy Pelosi want. They all want George Zimmerman convicted without due process. That seems to be what the Dems want, they have been going against the constitution so long its normal policy for them.
What we need right now is for a court to try this case and not the media. We need the trouble makers and fear mongers to stay out of it and allow our legal system to work.
