Family of Walter Scott tells Rev. Al Sharpton to keep away

That was the message from the family of South Carolina police shooting victim Walter Scott to the civil rights activistThe Rev. Al Sharpton-  Washington, DC Thursday two days before the funeral for the slain father of four.

“We don’t want another Ferguson type of circus here,” a source close to the Scott family told The Daily News.

About time somebody did.

  • Good for them.

    Word is the cop has a history, and it’s not good.

    • Indeed. Look, I think George Zimmerman was justified. I think Darren Wilson (Michael Brown/Ferguson) was justified. Both cases seem straightforward to me. I’m not sure what to make of the Garner killing, but that’s simply because I haven’t looked into it in detail.

      This Scott case is murder. A fleeing, unarmed suspect shot eight times in the back. I can’t imagine what evidence could be introduced to justify the clear evidence of the video tape.

      Of course I’m aware of the poisonous atmosphere of race agitation that this horrible administration has been doing its best for years to foster and escalate. That doesn’t make any damn difference to Walter Scott or his family. Telling that execrable pimp Sharpton to f*** off is an honourable move on their part.

    This could be the first time in history that The Revrun was told to piss off by a black family. It’s gonna be a long hot summer.

      And you think that will keep Al the parasite away? Good luck with that.

    Sharpton wouldn’t have shown up anyway, the alleged perpetrator is in jail and nobody is trying to defend him in the court of public opinion therefore no racebaiting to be had here. One thing nobody has mentioned is checking the other cops out for filing a false report because the narrative is the black officer performed CPR but based on my experience as a CPR instructor I have yet to see any compressions being performed on any video and all the videos show the victim on lying on his front so you can’t perform compressions.

      Compressions on someone with 8 holes on them would only squeeze the blood out faster…do police carry Magic Fairy Clotting Powder? No…of course not. They’re not here to save lives,rarely…mostly they only take. It’s a good thing that cops don’t work in mental homes…imagine the weekly carnage if they did….

        Thank you for the lesson. As you pointed out compressions would have only forced blood out. My point was for the first day all reports were saying that the black police officer performed CPR on Walter Scott and the video proves is another lie. I believe that if that video didn’t exist the cops would have covered this up.

  • Good.
