Al Sharpton’s Daughter Dominique Has Even More Pics on Instagram Hiking on a Permanently Injured Ankle
DOLT OF THE WEEK …
In the end, 28 year old Dominique Sharpton should only get $5 for her lawsuit against New York City claiming injury due to falling on uneven pavement. It would appear that Al Sharpton’s daughter has much to learn from the master in the art of the shake down. Even more pics have surfaces on Dominique’s Instagram account of her hiking. But, according to her lawsuit, she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries.” Those injuries do not seem to stop her from hiking in Bali either.
Personally there should be no nuisance settlement in this case. If NYC wanted to make a point and put an end to this, the City should counter sue for fraud.
The Rev. Al Sharpton’s island-hopping, mountain-hiking daughter — who is suing the city for $5?million after purportedly injuring her ankle on a Soho sidewalk — posted more damning Instagram pics Monday of her frolicking in Indonesia as legal experts said her social-media activity could cost her big bucks.
“#Balidays on the Gilis!!!’’ Dominique Sharpton, 28, wrote with two snapshots of herself at what looked like a posh Gili Island retreat.
The new entries came the same day The Post revealed others in which the supposedly hobbled Dominique boasted of climbing a mountain there.
Since allegedly spraining her ankle in October, she has also been pictured in high heels at a hippie party and climbing the dicey terrain of Red Rock Canyon in Nevada.
The photos kill even the slightest chance Dominique had of collecting big bucks from the city, legal experts said, even as the de?Blasio administration has been shelling out more money than ever to settle lawsuits.
Dominique Sharpton, Al Sharpton’s Daughter Sues New York City for $5M after Spraining Ankle (Update: Pics of Dominique Sharpton Hiking Mountains)
The apple does not fall far from the shake down tree in the Sharpton family … or is it by Shaking the Apple tree, trying to take a bite out of the Big Apple?
28 year old Dominique Sharpton, the daughter of Rev. Al Sharpton is suing the city of New York for $5 million. Dominique Sharpton is claiming she fell in the street, sprained her ankle and severely injured and bruised her ankle because of uneven pavement at the corner of Broome Street and Broadway downtown. Good grief. It would appear that Dominique has learned from the master of shakedown. According to her lawsuit, she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries.” Dominique Sharpton claims she fell in a crosswalk, which would make hers a “defective roadway” claim. However, in December Dominique was good to go for NAN’s Justice for All march in Washington, DC and for a New Year’s Eve jaunt to Miami Beach. And even with the claims of “permanent physical pain, there are pics on social-media of her in high heels, and another of her climbing a ladder to decorate a Christmas tree. Yup, she has learned well from the Shakedown master.
My Monkey senses make me say the following …
Shakedown artist Al Sharpton’s eldest child wants $5 million from city taxpayers after she fell in the street and sprained her ankle, court records show.
Dominique Sharpton, 28, says she was “severely injured, bruised and wounded” when she stumbled over uneven pavement at the corner of Broome Street and Broadway downtown last year, according to a lawsuit.
Currently on vacation in Bali, the membership director for her gadfly dad’s National Action Network claims she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries,” according to the suit filed against the city departments of Transportation and Environmental Protection.
“I sprained my ankle real bad lol,” she wrote in a post to Instagram after the Oct. 2 fall.
She was pictured in a walking boot in the weeks following the tumble, but by December, Dominique was good to go for NAN’s Justice for All march in Washington, DC, and for a New Year’s Eve jaunt to Miami Beach.
And despite claiming “permanent physical pain” in a breathless notice of claim, there are social-media shots of her in high heels, and another of her climbing a ladder to decorate a Christmas tree.
Hmm, isn’t that called fraud if you claim one thing and it is a knowing false claim?
From Weasel Zippers comes the screen shot of Sharpton’s daughter, who is currently of vacation in Bali hiking up mountains. How many Americans in this terrible economy can afford to take a vacation to Bali? Oh but wait, I thought she claimed permanent physical pain? So sharpton’s daughter is looking to ceat the NYC tax payers out of money with a trunped up claim that she injured herself as she
Oh wait, here is another picture from Dominique Sharpton’s Instagram site showing her hiking in Red Rock canyon about a month ago. Because everyone knows that some one with a severe and permanent damage to their ankle can hike there. Of course I guess it is just a coincidence that her daddy Sharpton owes $4.5 million in back taxes.
NYC should sue her for fraud.
It not only adds up to no case, it amounts to fraud.
Dominique Sharpton posted pictures to Instagram showing she completed a difficult mountain climb in Bali, Indonesia — even though her suit says that “she still suffers” debilitating pain after twisting her ankle in a street crack in Soho last year.
She didn’t seem to realize that her mountaineering exploits might undermine her legal claims as she bragged online about the difficulty of her ascent.
What legal experts saw as truly unreal, however, is the younger Sharpton’s brazen boasting after she claimed in court papers that she was in “permanent physical pain.”
“It is starting to look like Tawana Brawley is orchestrating the Sharpton trial strategy,” quipped CNN legal analyst Paul Callan. “It graphically demonstrates bad judgment and good feet. It all adds up to no case.”
Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne Announces Madison Police Officer Matt Kenny Will Not Face Any Charges in the March 2015 Shooting Death of Bi-Racial Teen Tony Robinson (VIDEO)
NO CHARGES FOR OFFICER KENNY IN THE SHOOTING DEATH OF TONY ROBINSON …
Today, Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne announced that there will be no criminal charges filed against Madison, WI police officer Matt Kenny in the shooting death of 19 year old Tony Robinson. The district attorney Ozanne announced that it was a “lawful use of deadly police force.” Ozanne, in the video below, detailed the evidence that he reviewed before making his decision and then described the three 911 calls that were made prior to police being called to the scene. Orzanne described how the callers said that Robinson was “tweaking, chasing everybody” and his other bizarre and erratic and violent behavior.
The Madison, Wisconsin, police officer who fatally shot a 19-year-old will not be criminally charged for the shooting since the district attorney announced today that it was a “lawful use of deadly police force.”
Officer Matt Kenny fatally shot Robinson on March 6 after police received a disturbance call. Robinson had allegedly been running in traffic and Kenny forced himself into an apartment that Robinson had run into. Robinson and Kenny got into an altercation inside the home and Kenny shot Robinson in his head, torso and right arm, authorities said.
“My decision is not based on emotion. Rather this decision is based on the facts as they have been investigated and reported to me,” Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne said at a news conference this afternoon.
In the end after Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne laid out all of the facts that took place that day, no charges could be filed against officer Kenny. No criminal charges could have ever been charged. Sometimes a suspects actions are so outrageous and threatening that a police officers only action is that of “lawful use of deadly police force.” Anyone who protests this as no clue of the rule of law, authority and does not care.
The Wisconsin police officer who shot and killed a 19-year-old unarmed biracial man won’t face criminal charges in the case.
“I conclude that this tragic and unfortunate death was the result of a lawful use of deadly police force and that no charges should be brought against Officer Kenny in the death of Tony Robinson Jr.,” Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne said Tuesday.
Robinson was fatally shot by Officer Matt Kenny, who is white, in Madison, Wisconsin, on March 6, setting off days of protests in the city. His death came amid lingering tensions over the killings by police elsewhere of other unarmed African-Americans that seized national attention.
The police union praised Tuesday’s announcement.
“We believe the district attorney’s decision today to exonerate Officer Matthew Kenny was appropriate,” Wisconsin Professional Police Association Executive Director Jim Palmer said in a statement. “The exhaustive, independent and transparent investigation into this tragic incident has confirmed that Officer Kenny’s actions on the night of March 6 were lawful and in response to a deadly threat, from which Officer Kenny sustained numerous injuries, including a concussion.
Sorry, it is over. The police officer did not create the deadly situation, that was on Tony Robinson . The only truthful thing this attorney said was that this was a tragedy. Of course any time a 19 year old id dead, it is a tragedy. However, please spare us the BS that this was caused by a police officer. Tony Robinson’s actions are on him. He is responsible for his actions and the drug induced, erratic and violent state he was in.
Following the announcement, support for Tony Robinson’s family spilled into the streets of Madison — with supporters marching on Robinson’s behalf.
Tony Robinson’s family members and those who support them said they were disappointed by District Attorney Ozanne’s decision not to file charges in this case.
Hundreds marched through the streets of Madison — showing support for the family.
They say Tuesday’s decision won’t stop them from continuing to fight for justice.
“The loss this family has experienced is almost impossible to put into words,” Jon Loevy, the attorney for the Robinson family said.

61 Year Old Richard Fletcher Brutally Beaten in Baltimore … Where is the Baltimore Mayor or State’s Attorney Outrage?
HMM, DO 61 YEAR OLD WHITE MEN’S LIVES MATTER? I DON’T REMEMBER THE BALTIMORE MAYOR STEPHANIE RAWLINGS-BLAKE OR STATES ATTORNEY MARILYN MOSBY WITH OUTRAGE ON THIS BLACK ON WHITE CRIME?
61 year old Richard Fletcher is still recovering and has a long row to hoe after being beaten by a mob of kids within an inch of his life. According to accounts, Fletcher saw two girls fighting on top of his car and asked them to stop. This was the provocation for dozens of teens to brutally attacked him. The majority of the students involved in the beating came from Baltimore Community High School. The High School has more than 450 students, grades 7-12. Most of the students catch the MTA bus least than a quarter of a mile away. Officials say the students walk through a Dundalk neighborhood, creating problems for many neighbors. Fletcher suffered broken eye sockets, a broken nose, broken ribs and a brain bleed from this heinous April 22 attack. Fletcher was beaten so badly that he was placed in a medically induced coma.
Okay, what is the justification to this attack? What excuse will be made to condone this type of behavior? Honestly, who acts like this?
17 year old Antoine Lawson has been charged as an adult with attempted murder in connection with the attack and a 15 year old girl is charged with assault. Lawson was indicted Monday on charges of attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, robbery and theft of less than $1,000. He is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center
Antoine Willie Lawson, 17, charged as an adult with first and second degree assault
A Maryland man is recovering after being violently beaten by a group of teenagers in an attack caught on video, reports CBS Baltimore.
Horrifying cell phone video shows a group of teens kicking and hitting Richard Fletcher, a 61-year-old Dundalk man, until he drops to the ground.
Fletcher reportedly suffered broken eye sockets, a broken nose, broken ribs and a brain bleed in the April 22 attack. He has since been released from the hospital.
Investigators say Fletcher saw two girls fighting on top of his car and when he went outside to ask them to stop, dozens of teens brutally attacked him.
“He wasn’t trying to intervene in their disagreement. He just wanted them to stop fighting and move away from his car,” Cpl. John Wachter of the Baltimore County Police Department told the station.
Seventeen-year-old Antoine Lawson is charged as an adult with attempted murder in connection with the attack and a 15-year-old girl is charged with assault. Neighbors say the teens go to nearby Baltimore Community High School. Authorities say more arrests are imminent.
How sick has this country become when its citizens now fear for their own safety as the police make more arrests in the disgusting and savage attack? When will we call these thugs for what they truly are, domestic terrorists.
So far, 17-year-old Antoine Lawson has been charged with attempted murder and a 15-year-old faces an assault charge in the beating, according to police. More arrests are expected to be made.
The neighborhood now fears for their own safety and would like to see police make more arrests in connection to the attack.
If you want to help Richard Fletcher in what is going to amount to be hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical fees, go to the a Go Fund Me page that was set up for him.
George Zimmerman Injuried in Shooting Incident in Lake Mary, FL (Update: Atty. Mark NeJame Says Apperson Shot in Self-Defense)(Update: Charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon)
Well, its been a couple months since George Zimmerman has been in thew news …
As reported at WESH, George Zimmerman was injured today in a shooting incident in Lake Mary, Florida. According to reports, Zimmerman suffered a minor gunshot wound. The police said that the individual who shot at Zimmerman was the same man, Matthew Apperson, who has had an on-going feud with Zimmerman. According to the police, George Zimmerman did not fire any shots, according to police. Zimmerman was taken to Central Florida Regional Hospital, and was quickly released. The two have an ongoing dispute and were involved in an altercation in September 2014, when Apperson accused Zimmerman of trying to kill him in a road-rage encounter.
George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watchman, was found not guilty of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin in 2013.
George Zimmerman suffered minor injuries in a shooting incident in Lake Mary on Monday afternoon, according to Lake Mary police.
Zimmerman flagged down an officer shortly after the incident, police said.
“He walked normally into the ambulance, so he wasn’t being helped or nothing,” said witness Ricardo Berrare. “They actually backed up the ambulance next to his driver side so he could walk into the door.”
Chopper 2 video showed a bullet hole in the passenger window of the vehicle Zimmerman was in.
“At this time, the investigation has proven that George Zimmerman was not the shooter,” Lake Mary Police Department spokeswoman Bianca Gillette said.
Zimmerman was hit in the face with glass and debris and has since been released from Central Florida Regional Hospital, according to police.
Kenneth Cornell, who works at the nearby Cyrus Diagnostic Imaging, said Apperson ran up to him about 1 p.m. saying he had just shot George Zimmerman.
Cornell said he called 911 and handed the phone over to Apperson.
“He said it was a road rage incident, that they were driving down the street and George pulled a gun on him,” Cornell said.
Zimmerman was hit in the face with glass and debris, police told WESH. Investigators are waiting to speak with both men, who sustained “minor injuries” and have been released from the hospital, Gillett said less than four hours after the shooting.
Police Chief Steve Bracknell told WESH that the shooting may have been related to an “ongoing dispute.”
Attorney Mark NeJame – This client fired in self-defense
The attorney for a Seminole County man accused of shooting at George Zimmerman during a road rage incident on Monday said he opened fire in self-defense.
Police said the shooting stemmed from a road rage incident on Lake Mary Boulevard and involved Matthew Apperson, of Winter Springs, a man involved in another confrontation with Zimmerman in September.
“He simply maintained that he acted in self-defense,” attorney Mark NeJame said. “We see everything to suggest that that is correct.”
The Winter Springs man accused of shooting at George Zimmerman in Lake Mary earlier this week must turn in his weapons and avoid contact with him, a judge ruled this morning.
Matthew Apperson, 35 of Winter Springs, was charged Friday with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and firing a deadly missile into an occupied conveyance.
“I don’t care whether you’ve been shopping at Publix for two hours and have a full cart of groceries, or whatever. You see Mr. Zimmerman walking through that door, you’re the one who has to leave,” Circuit Judge Michael Rudisill told Apperson during his first appearance this morning at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility.
Typically, people arrested are ordered to stay away from specific places where the people they are accused of attacking live or work. But in this case, Zimmerman did not want his whereabouts made public, Rudisill said.
“I don’t know where he’s going to be, I can’t tell you where not to be,” Rudisill told Apperson.
But if Apperson happens to see Zimmerman, he is not allowed to interact with him, Rudisill said.
The man accused of shooting at George Zimmerman bonded out of jail over the weekend and has surrendered his guns and ammunition to law enforcement, police said.
Matthew Apperson, 36, appeared in court Saturday charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and firing a deadly missile into an occupied conveyance, police said.
He bonded out of jail that same day and then surrendered his weapons on Sunday, as ordered by a judge. His arraignment has been set for June 23.
CBS News/NY Times Poll: Race Relations Worst In Over Two Decades … 61% Call Race Relations in the US “BAD”
THANKS BARACK … YOU HAVE MADE MATTERS WORSE … OBAMA IS TRULY THE DIVIDER IN CHIEF.
According to a new CBS News-New York Times poll, 61% of Americans characterize race relations in the United States as “bad.” Thanks to Barack Obama, the most decisive president ever, the first black elected president of the United States has actually made race relations in the US worse, rather than better. You should be so proud of yourself. This is what the Obama presidency has accomplished, the poll states that for the first time since 1997 a majorities of both white and black Americans believe race relations in the U.S. are poor. Obama is an abject failure. This man could have done so much for race relations in the United States, he could have bridged the divide like Nelson Mandela did in South Africa between whites and blacks, but instead, because of his radical left agenda, his hateful black theology teachings and a religious mentor like Rev. Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright, Barack Obama has made race relations worse in the US. This will forever he Obama’s legacy.
Is it any wonder why Barack Obama has created the worst race relations in two decades … It appears Obama was listening in the pews to his mentor Rev. Jeremiah Wright
A new poll released Monday indicated that Americans believe race relations are at their worst in more than two decades.
The CBS News/New York Times poll said 61 percent of Americans characterize race relations in the U.S. as “bad,” including a majority of white and black respondents. The figure is the highest since 1992.
A total of 79 percent of African-Americans believe police are more likely to use deadly force against a black person than against a white person, while 53 percent of whites believe race does not play a role, the survey said.
Black respondents were also more likely than white respondents to believe their local police make them feel anxious rather than safe, the poll said.
This was also the first time since 1997 that majorities of both white and black Americans believe race relations in the U.S. are poor, the poll said. Opinions among white Americans have grown sharply more negative in the poll even compared with earlier this year – with 62 percent of whites saying race relations are bad compared with just 35 percent in February.
Black respondents have historically had a more negative view than white respondents about race relations, but the level of pessimism is now similar, according to the poll.
Also, fewer than one in five white Americans think race relations are getting better – with 44 percent responding that relations are getting worse and 37 percent saying they’re staying about the same.
Most respondents – 64 percent of whites and 57 percent of blacks – thought the unrest in Baltimore following Gray’s death was not justified, the poll said.
This poll isn’t much better than the Bloomberg poll in 2014.
Dr. Ben Carson, who just announced that he was running for president for 2016, previously stated in November 2014 that race relations were better prior to President Barack Obama. He said that things have gotten worse because of Obama’s manipulation of minority communities
LET THE LOOTING AND BURNING BEGIN AGAIN …
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced today, Sunday, May 2, 2015 that she was lifting the 6 day curfew imposed after riots ensued using the excuse of the death of a black man, Freddie Gray, who sustained a spinal injury while in police custody. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has mishandled and botched the handling of this situation from the outset. Her naive and foolish agenda to have police stand down and not protect her city resulted in the lawlessness, rioting and mob violence that saw businesses looted, burned to the ground and police officers injured.
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced Sunday that she was lifting the six-day curfew imposed after riots ensued over the death of a black man who sustained a spinal injury while in police custody.
“My goal has always been to not have the curfew in place a single day longer than was necessary,” she tweeted. “I believe we have reached that point today.”
The announcement came a day after thousands gathered Saturday outside City Hall, where heavily armed police and National Guard were stationed, in a tense but celebratory demonstration. The 10 p.m. curfew remained in effect that night.
Tensions eased after the Friday announcement of charges against six police officers in Freddie Gray’s death.
So this clueless and over her head Mayor thinks that mere charges against the police officers are going to quell the lawlessness, really? As it was, she waited too long to put a curfew in place as she allowed the thugs and punks to overrun the city as Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake gave the police a stand down order. Over 200 businesses were lost and burned thanks to an idiot Mayor giving the rioters their space to destroy and let them loot because it was only property.
If this mayor actually thinks that Baltimore has been reunited, she is a fool. From all accounts and comments that we have heard from the protesters, the issues of Baltimore were present prior to the death of Freddie Gray and they are still present. The Mayor is just lipsticking a pig and trying to put a happy face on a bad situation that has existed for decades. There is no way the mob will be happy with charges against the police officers, they want scalps. Just curious, what happens when the police are found not guilty?
With all due respect the the politicians, both Democrat and Republican, you are going to need a lot more than prayer, peace and reflections to fix Baltimore. Your average person would not go near Baltimore because in order for you to claim it is safe, the National Guard is still present and hundreds of extra police have been called in. Also, there is still massive unemployment and a culture of dependency on government. Until that is addressed, nothing is really being done to remedy the situation.
NFL’s Benjamin Watson Facebook Post on Baltimore Riots: ‘I See a Brokenness That Only Christ Can Give Us Wisdom and Power to Mend’
Some amazing and reflective words from the NFL’s New Orleans Saints Tight End Benjamin Watson …
On reflecting on the riots in Baltimore, Christian professional football player Benjamin Watson wrote, “I see a brokenness that only Christ can give us the wisdom and power to mend.”
Commenting on the devastating violence that took place on Monday in Baltimore, outspoken Christian professional football player Benjamin Watson explained that the pain, anger and tension that the city and its residents are experiencing can only be healed through the power of Christ.
Watson noted that Baltimore is not the first city to go through a violent uprising over police negligence, and likely won’t be the last. He further asserted that the problems Baltimore faces right now are shared by the nation as a whole.
NFL’s Benjamin Watson Talks About Baltimore Riots On Greta Van Sustern
We have major problems as a nation. Yesterday Ferguson burned. Tonight ?#?Baltimore? burns. Tomorrow it will be another city in our homeland. Watching the coverage I’m hearing yet another version of a nauseatingly familiar narrative. Violence by police reciprocated by violence by the community, reciprocated by violence by police reciprocated by…. It seems fruitless to continue to analyze, condemn, and respond to these dreadful episodes. “Frustration, anger, tension boiling over, upset and unfortunate” are words we hear from Baltimore residents. When it comes to law enforcement, race, poverty, education, immigration we always talk about fixing “broken” systems. We resolve to legislate for education, job creation, and systemic overhaul. These are helpful and definitely needed BUT we have done all of these things ad nauseum and look at us!! Without a change of heart these attempts fail us. So what can we say? What can we do? Systems are broken because people are broken and if systems are fixed without hearts being changed the result will be a legalistic attempt that will lack long term results. Our problems are wholistic and common to the human heart. Hatred, prejudice, exploitation, pride, self righteousness, secrecy, and rebellion, manifest itself in the explosions we’ve seen over the last year, the last century, and the last millennia.
Tonight I see so much entrenched pain without remedy. Most are handling it without violence while a few are committing the unacceptable.
Tonight I see young children, asking like my daughter did earlier, “What’s happening daddy”, in desperate need of parents to walk them through these disturbing scenes.
Tonight I see “smoke,” but we must address the fire. The response that we are watching is just “smoke” from years of hopelessness. After each situation the more I am convinced that the love of God for our fellow brothers and sisters who were created in His image, is our only hope for reconciliation. But the only way we can even see him that way is if God illuminates our view and changes our thought process. I’m not talking about holding hands and singing. Love is an action that compels one to treat another with dignity and respect even if they don’t deserve it. It pushes for education and opportunities for those in poverty. It gives identity and self worth. It administers justice without abuse. It honors authority and promotes peace. It is not weak, but strong for what is right!
Tonight I see a brokenness that only Christ can give us the wisdom and power to mend.
We pray for every disaster that happens to us. Bombings, natural disasters, cancer and outbreaks. What we’ve seen in our country lately deserves that same attention. Our attempts to fix this have fallen short.
We, and most importantly, the body of Christ, must stand for justice in all areas, for all people. We must set the standard for the correct way to treat people.
Tonight I pray for the pastors, leaders, police and community of Baltimore.
Tonight I ?#?PrayForAmerica?.

The six Baltimore police officers involved in the arrest of Freddie Gray – who died after being injured in police custody – have been charged criminally, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced Friday.
Mosby’s announcement on the steps of the War Memorial Building was greeted with cheers and applause. Mosby said she told Gray’s family that “no one is above the law and I would pursue justice upon their behalf.”
The city was gearing up for another round of demonstrations after the announcement. Baltimore City and Maryland state offices granted workers in the city liberal leave early Friday afternoon.

“I did not expect this, but I prayed for it,” he said. “This day means that your actions bring consequences in Baltimore City.”
Fox News Reporter Leland Vittert Confronts Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake as Al Sharpton Prevents Freedom of Speech
I KNOW HE WORKS FOR MSNBC, BUT ISN’T AL SHARPTON A MEMBER OF THE MEDIA … WHAT’S UP WITH THIS PREVENTING THE MEDIA FROM TALKING TO A PUBLIC OFFICIAL?
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake owes everyone an explanation as to her disastrous handling of the Baltimore riots. However, AL Sharpton does not seem to think so. Instead, he is protecting her backside. Talk about hypocrisy and double standard. Watch the video below and see Al Sharpton, a member of the MSM who receives a paycheck from MSNBC, actually prevents a member of the media from asking questions of Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. the so-called Reverand Al Sharpton is running cover and playing body guard to embattled Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. HUH? Fox News reporter Leland Vittert is shoved out of the way as he tried to do what the media’s job is to do and that bis ask public officials questions and hold them accountable to the people. The Fox News reporter tried to get clarification from the Baltimore Mayor as to whether she gave the police the order to stand down and “Let Them Loot, It’s Only Property”.
Make up your mind Al, either you are a civil rights activist or a member of the media, you can’t be both. As for MSNBC, there should be no question, he should be let go immediately as t is obvious that Sharpton has no objectivity and does not even pretend to.
Who thinks Al Sharpton would be treating a white Mayor this way of a city where a black man was killed in police custody?
Fox News reporter Leland Vittert was shoved out of the way when he confronted Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake as she was walking with Al Sharpton on Thursday.
The reporter received no answers to his questions about the report or riots.
“We can’t we ask questions?” Vittert asked. “We can’t ask questions of a public official?”
As Rawlings-Blake walked silently, Sharpton is seen on video telling Vittert that he will “have the opportunity” to ask questions at an upcoming press conference.
Vittert is later literally shoved out of the way and the tense confrontation ended shortly after.
