MEDIAITE On Wednesday, hours after Attorney General Eric Holder promised that his Department of Justice will take action in the case of Trayvon Martin if there is evidence that a civil rights crime had been committed in that case, MSNBC host and president of the National Action Network,
Rev. Al Sharpton, held a press conference with the family of Trayvon Martin where he condemned threats of violence against unindicted but alleged shooter George Zimmerman.
“We are not running a hate campaign; this is a love campaign,” said Sharpton just after he demanded the immediate arrest and detention of Zimmerman.“To lecture us about rushing to judgment – we’re a victim of a rush to judgment in this
This case,” said Sharpton.
Sharpton went on to make clear that neither he nor the Martin family condone vigilante justice in this case. “Trayvon Martin’s name must not be tarnished by those that are either for or against us with any reckless behavior even verbally,” said Sharpton.
