Family Of Man Slain By Police Officer Tell Al Sharpton To Stay Away

AlSharptonStay away, Rev. Al. … That was the message from the family of South Carolina police shooting victim Walter Scott to the civil rights activist 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.

That was a reference to the Missouri town that was rocked by violent demonstrations last year after black teen Michael Brown was killed by a white cop.

Sharpton gave a rousing speech at the 18-year-old’s funeral, which was attended by thousands.

Scott family attorney Chris Stewart said they appreciate Sharpton’s support but “the funeral is only going to be close family members.” …

    As an Englishman living in CA and from a country where cops do not carry guns I wish you to know that I feel deeply saddened by your loss and admire your dignity in handling a difficult situation with the Sharpton self interest only bandwagon. Whilst the memories of your dearly departed will for ever live with you time will however subdue the hard pain you are feeling right now, My deepest condolences.

  • Heartfelt condolences to this family for the loss of their beloved one. Sincerest gratitude to them also, for having the temerity & honesty to decline intrusion by Al Sharpton into the situation. Their neighbors, community & the entire country thank them for having the courage to halt another disastrous outcome, which would have been inevitable, if Al Sharpton had been allowed to interject his disgusting race baiting, war mongering rhetoric into the lives of everyone, everywhere.

    I am so sorry for this family’s loss, and so glad they have chosen to keep that trouble monger Sharpton away from their family and to let the family grieve in private instead of Sharpton making a circus out of his tragic death,

    I feel so bad for this family, to loose a father, son, friend, a man. Then to have people turn it into a circus, I am glad they choose to keep his dignity and not let the circus masters take that from them. It is bad enough to loose a family member and friend. Focus on those he leaves behind and heal. RIP Walter.

    No matter how we feel, this time IS FOR THE FAMILY; should NOT be a circus. Keep the graffiti away and the world would be a better place………..

    Amen, Sharpton is nothing more then an X drug dealer and a race bater.

    Good for these people to tell old Al Sharpton to stay away.

    Hats off and respect to the Scott family. It is extremely refreshing to hear that Al Sharpton has essentially been told to take a hike. He has made his life and his fortune off the deliberate engendering of hatred and anger. America would be much better off if he’d just dry up and blow away. He is needed now about like the whole country just needs a stick in the eye. Again, sympathies to the Scott family, but also respect. It is a very difficult time for them, but they have chosen NOT to be Sharpton’s tools to be used in even more destruction of our society than he is already guilty of. To the Scott family, I would say that I guess it doesn’t mean much at a time like this, but you folks are truly great Americans for not allowing yourselves to be used by the likes of Sharpton.

    Finally… Time to “BAG” Sharpton and leave it on a CURB in NYC for the Sanitation Department to DISPOSE OF….

    At a time such as this everyone should show some consideration if not respect for the family. It is after all not about the National Action Network nor Al Sharpton or for that matter anyone outside the family.
