The man is a sensationalist snake oil salesmen... its a term usually deemed for politicians, but he has enjoyed that label.

I grew up in the riotous seasons of New York, from the lies of Ms. Brawley, to the bashings in Bensonhurst, to the variety of clashes with the Hasidic Jews and their police escorts in Crown Heights... and usually those are the times which you see him, pandering, playing to the anger, zero results but a hefty donations from the community and other sources...

Al Sharpton Accused of Helping Lead FBI to Assata Shakur
http://www.kulturekritic.com/2013/05/news/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.

I hear you for the most part but we are talking about a man who got paid in full to do what he do. I have no pity for him IF he was an agent of Cointelpro and these stories are true.

Thanks Brother O ... i was actually kinda surprised that they didn't mention more black people he'd snitched on.

They mentioned Don King, but that was sorta it ... oh ... and some black music man that he gave a hard time to.

But yeah ... this article seemed to focus primarily on the mafia ... who he helped lock up from that camp.

It's looking strategic ... like ... "we leaked the black snitch stuff first, but they didn't kill you, maybe the mafia will?"

There's no telling where this will end ... what information his handlers have, that they've not released yet.

Love You!

Newsday reported in January that beginning in 1983 Sharpton secretly supplied federal law enforcement agencies with information on boxing promoter Don King, reputed organized crime figures and black leaders and elected officials. And in a two-hour interview, Sharpton admitted to Newsday that he had assisted the government in drug and organized crime cases. He said he also accompanied undercover federal agents wearing body recorders to meetings with various subjects of federal investigations. He said he had allowed the U.S. attorney’s office for the Eastern District of New York to install a tapped telephone in his Brooklyn home.

The law enforcement source implicating Sharpton in the hunt for Assata Shakur said that Sharpton was also, secondarily, trying to help agents get other fugitives, especially Mutulu Shakur, who was still on the run at that time. Mutulu Shakur, no relation to Assata, was later apprehended and convicted in connection with the Brink’s robbery and the escape of Assata Shakur.

For the record, bro. Mutulu was the step-father of Tupac Shakur.

Peace,

I'm essentially drawing attention to the fact the people who appear to be calling Mr. Sharpton out are the same people who go through great lengths to insure that the dominant power structure stays in place. Since when has the FBI been friends with the black community? Pardon my sarcasm. I don't really think anyone from the black community put this out there. It's another devil tactic to keep us killing and fighting one another.
I think someone at Smoking Gun "put this out there." All these innuendos, all this talk of the FBI and the Mafia, NONE of which is substantiated! Just a lot of talk, but no names of ANYONE other than their "quarry," Al Sharpton. I am soooo in agreement with you - it's an attempt divide and conquer. Knowing black folks' propensity for "conspiracy theories" and mudslinging on other, more "successful" blacks, they simply threw some dirty wood chips into the fire.

And I'm not exaggerating. When we have people on THIS forum slandering and libeling Dr. King with impunity, calling him a "sexual degenerate," a COMMUNIST, wasn't a "real" black leader rather a puppet of whites in Moscow, as well as Rosa Parks, Dr. Clark and Septima Clark... and since whites can read as well as blacks... this kind of no-name (made up?) allegations of prominent blacks will always be thrown into the credulous ears of the black community. They're simply a continuation of the (hmmmm) FBI's COINTELPRO.

If Sharpton’s account is to be believed, he was simply a concerned citizen who voluntarily (and briefly) joined arm-in-arm with federal agents, perhaps risking peril in the process.
Will someone show me in the article where Sharpton says he "joined" arms with the FBI? I know the trick of taking ones words out of context, but I saw NOWHERE he agreed with the author of this piece that he was an FBI informant. But to read the above, you'd think he agreed, wouldn't you?

The other explanation for Sharpton’s cooperation--one that has uniformly been offered by knowledgeable law enforcement agents--presents the reverend in a less noble light. Worried that he could face criminal charges, Sharpton opted for the path of self-preservation and did what the FBI asked. Which is usually how someone is compelled to repeatedly record a gangster discussing murder, extortion, and loan sharking.
Okay, this is a loooong article, so maybe I missed where Smoking Gun outlined what "criminal charges" Sharpton was facing? Also.... and the only reason I even opened this thread was after reading Destee's thread questioning if blacks are in the Mafia in the first place!.... why would Mafiosi discuss "murder, extortion and loan sharking" with Sharpton? Or, as Michael Corleone said in Godfather II, discuss murder, etc., with one of "the dark people?" Anyone who knows anything about the Mafia KNOWS they're not an equal opportunity employer. :rolleyes:

In the absence of any real examination/exhumation of Sharpton’s past involvement with the FBI and the Mafia, his denials have served the civil rights leader well. Scores of articles and broadcast reports about the Obama-era “rehabilitation” of Sharpton have mentioned his inflammatory past--Tawana Brawley, Crown Heights, Freddy’s Fashion Mart, and various anti-Semitic and homophobic statements. But his organized crime connections and related informant work have received no such scrutiny.
First, what "rehabilitation???" Has Sharpton changed? What's he doing or saying since Obama was elected that's different from before? :10500:

Secondly, where's the PROOF of any murder, extortions, loan-sharking and informant done by Sharpton? Names, dates, people murdered, names of the murderers.... :rolleyes: Nobody's scared of Sharpton, so some black person would have come forward by now with hand on hip and finger pointing!

He spends his time at 30 Rockefeller Plaza surrounded by reporters, editors, and researchers committed to accuracy and the exposure of those who violate the public trust.
These are people in the know. Why don't they tell on him? It was people like these who brought down President Nixon during Watergate. Why is Sharpton untouchable? :rolleyes:

Sharpton himself delights in a daily feature that seeks to expose liars, hypocrites, and others engaged in deceit (his targets tend to be Republican opponents of the Obama administration). As he wraps this segment, Sharpton points his finger at the camera and addresses his quarry: “Nice try, but we gotcha!”
^^Might this be the reason?[/quote][/quote]

MAY 30--A convicted felon now on trial for allegedly heading a large cocaine trafficking ring once worked with Rev. Al Sharpton to develop a TV show in which the civil rights activist would have starred as “Judge Sharpton,” according to testimony yesterday in Brooklyn federal court.
