    You miss the point. Sharpton is comparing the SC shooting with the Ferguson shooting and saying that SC did the right thing and Ferguson didn't. He ignores the fact that the reason Ferguson ended differently was because the narrative pushed by Sharpton and the race hustlers in Ferguson was a lie.

    It was also done (with only slight differences) in Ferguson, MO (Brown) and in NYC (Garner) - both of those cases were presented to a grand jury which decided not to indict. What Sharpton feils to grasp is that what a grand jury (eventually) decides to do (or not do) has little to do with the mayor. One big difference in the SC case is that the officer(s) involved could be immediately terminated without any union hoops to jump through.

    Maybe the man has learned something.
    A leopard can't change his spots, and Al Sharpton is still and will always be a low life, race baiting criminal.

    Maybe so,but I'm going to wait a while before I pass final judgement on this guy.

    In any case, I doubt that he'll ever be one of my favorite people.
