Sharpton Plans “Escalating Civil Disobedience” If Zimmerman Remains Free

Here come the riots.

Sharpton has practice at this.

MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton says there will be an escalation in civil disobedience if George Zimmerman remains free. The Orlando Sentinel reported, via Free Republic:

If George Zimmerman is not arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin soon, the Rev. Al Sharpton will call for an escalation in peaceful civil disobedience and economic sanctions. Sharpton would not say the efforts would be taken against the city of Sanford specifically, but he has been critical of the police department’s handling of the case.

Saturday’s scheduled 11 a.m. march from Crooms Academy of Information Technology to the Sanford Police Department headquarters was organized by the local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The civil rights activist and syndicated television show host said he will elaborate on this plan Saturday. “I will speak about how the National Action Network will move to the next level if Zimmerman isn’t arrested,” Sharpton said, who founded the organization.

He added that it was the Martin family and lawyers who first asked him to get involved and nationalize this story. The case has ignited ire and debate across the nation, galvanizing thousands of Trayvon supporters to the streets and social media, donning hoodies and toting Skittles.
