Al Sharpton Renews Calls for Federal Prosecution In Ferguson

The Rev. Al Sharpton returned to St. Louis Friday to renew calls for the federal prosecution of a white police officer who shot and killed a black 18-year-old in the nearby suburb of Ferguson.

A St. Louis County grand jury’s deliberations about whether to indict Ferguson officer Darren Wilson in Michael Brown’s killing are expected to be complete by mid-November. The U.S. Justice Department is also investigating whether Wilson violated Brown’s civil rights and conducting a broad investigation of police in Ferguson and the St. Louis area.

Sharpton returned to New York after meeting with Brown’s parents and local activists. He’s scheduled to again join Brown’s parents Monday at a get-out-the-vote rally in St. Louis.

Sharpton’s breakfast speech was followed by a training of volunteer “justice disciples” to monitor the police response to anticipated protests over the upcoming grand jury decision.

  1. Al, hopefully the Grand Jury in St. Louis County has more integrity than you. If they find a white cop guilty of murder than they will order an arrest and he have a fair trial. If they do not find evidence of a murder and was in fact self defense, no indictment. I said white cop here for your benefit Al, because that this is all this is about for you, race. You just won’t a white man to go through hell.
    If it were a black cop that killed Brown, you wouldn’t have invested so much as a second in Ferguson.
    The Grand Jury members don’t want to live with burying a man just because Al Sharpton said to. It is baffling that anyone can try and hide their racism behind a cloth of their so called religious faith.
