Big Al on the scene
And this man wants to run for president:
The Rev. Al Sharpton said yesterday that he was unsatisfied with internal police inquiries that found three recent police shootings apparently justified, and announced he formed an investigative panel to be led by City Councilman Charles Barron and a retired NYPD sergeant.
Sharpton, surrounded by families of the victims, claims that three of the men shoth "might not have posed an imminent threat when they were shot."
Jamal Nixon was shot Wednesday in Brownsville after he fired into the air and then turned his gun on police.
Anthony Reid was killed about three hours later after he apparently fired at a fleeing car and at police responding to the scene.
The next day, Allen Newsome was killed in Harlem after putting a pellet gun to the head of a detective dressed as a delivery man, according to police. The detective's partner shot him .
Nope, no imminent threat there. None at all.
[T]he head of 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care countered two hours later that he was content with the department's probes, noting the three shootings happened apparently after the suspects turned their weapons on officers.
Yet, there's Big Al, still out there looking for publicity, trying for all the world to look like he's a man of the people, for the people. He needs to choose his "victims" a bit more carefully if he intends for people to take his run for the White House seriously, though I've yet to come across anyone - Republican or Democrat - who has.
