I'd heard this rumor years ago but could never confirm it one way or the other. "One law-enforcement source, who declined to be identified..."! Really? Does anybody remember COINTELPRO besides me? If Rev. Sharpton betrayed Assata Shakur, then yes he is a snitch!View attachment 2472
It ain't just the mob.
Al Sharpton Accused of Helping Lead FBI to Assata Shakur
One law-enforcement source, who declined to be identified but has detailed knowledge of Sharpton’s activities as an FBI informant, said this week that Sharpton was working as an informant at the time he sought to meet Chesimard. The source said that one of Sharpton’s assignments was to try to lead agents to Chesimard, who escaped from prison in 1979 after being convicted in the killing a New Jersey state trooper.
