Sharpton planning DC march over “national crisis”

Minister Gentry said it best the other day, that Al Sharpton is taking the hate from when he grew up and fueling it into an innocent generation. And that’s exactly what this march is about:

CBS DC – Rev. Al Sharpton is planning a national march on Washington next week following a grand jury decision not to indict a New York City police officer in the death of Eric Garner.

Sharpton said at a press conference Wednesday night at his National Action Network headquarters in Harlem that the march will take place on Saturday, Dec. 13.

“It’s time for a national march for a national crisis,” Sharpton said.

He continued: “We are not advocating violence, we are asking that police violence stop.”

Sharpton added the New York decision is yet another reason he has lost confidence in state grand juries and local prosecutors to bring such cases.

“State grand juries tend to be too compromised with local politics because local prosecutors run for office and they have to depend on the police for evidence,” he said. “Don’t we have the right to question grand juries when we’re looking at a video and seeing things that don’t make sense?”
