Family of Walter Scott Tells Rev. Al Sharpton to Keep Away

Matthew Lysiak et al., NY Daily News, April 9, 2015

Stay 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.”

“The Reverend Al has called and expressed his support and condolences,” said Stewart. “The family is very appreciative.”

Sharpton said he has been in touch with the Scott family and their lawyers but insisted “we had no plans to go down.”

“They are in mourning and we would never come unless they asked,” he told The News. “We’re willing to be helpful to the family but only when needed.”

Sharpton released a statement Friday morning adding that, “I have been invited to preach in North Charleston, SC, on Sunday and to help lead a healing prayer vigil that afternoon by local clergy who have worked on this case from the beginning.”

In recent days, Sharpton has slammed Scott’s fatal shooting by North Charleston Police Officer Michael Slager as “senseless” and proposed nationalizing the country’s police forces as a way to curb brutality against African-Americans.

    “Sharpton said he has been in touch with the Scott family and their lawyers but insisted ‘we had no plans to go down.'”

    That is the biggest load of you know what. Sharp-Tonnage wouldn’t miss a black extortion opportunity even after he wastes away…

    • Sick of it

      He’s not. He’s “preaching” in South Carolina anyway…he just won’t be at that guy’s funeral.

    • Light from the East

      Sharpton always says he has been in touch with the police shooting black people. It will be no exception in the future.

  • John Smith

    One less chance to extort YT for money.

  • superlloyd

    Even the naggers recognise that Sharpton is a media whore and shakedown artist only interested in the gibs.

    • Nonhumans

      Ooh OOH!! I’d like to solve the puzzle.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      Ever heard that joke about that hillbilly, when asked if his wife is a “nagger?” He replies, no sir-eee…she’s a little bitty white woman, ’bout that tall!”

    “Keep away. It’s all on video and we gonna get paid”

    • TomIron361

      I know I’m not supposed to ask this, but has anyone asked yet why the guy ran away from a broken tail light ticket?

      • IstvanIN

        Warrants for unpaid child support.

        • TomIron361

          Thanks much. That’s all I wanted to hear. The guy was in the wrong from the get go. What else is new?

        • ghettovalley

          Unpaid child support. I’m shocked.

          • While driving a used Mercedes that he told officer Slager he was about to buy. It’s funny; I’ve been short of money at various times, but when I am, I don’t celebrate by going out and buying another vehicle.

        • ElComadreja

          I’ll bet there’s more to it than that.

        • A bit over $18,000 worth of unpaid child support. I still don’t see why he ran. Everyone knows that supporting black children is the “responsibility” of white taxpayers. What was ol’ Walter so worried about?

          • Olorin

            Though I’m still reserving opinion on this whole matter, my initial reaction to reading that Scott ran away as he did was, “Yep, that’s what they do.”

            In my experience living in a vastly majority black city for decades, blacks in general lack the ability to reflect on actions in the moment. They are more impulsive and explosive in their reactions.

            It’s likely whites will get blamed for this in this case, and the claim made that he ran away out of some lifelong experience of horrible white oppression.

            In fact the first whites to encounter blacks on their continent of origin always observed and reported this behavior (among other things).

            No doubt brain structure has something to do with this. I’ve seen multiple research studies showing that in the main, blacks’ total brain mass and cerebral cortexes are smaller than whites’, while their amygdalae are larger. Considering the highly differential evolutionary paths both races have come down, this would make sense.

            If that turns out to be true for most blacks, the next logical question is whether these differences don’t correlate with behavioral ones.

            If they do, then the question becomes how to modify social policy to deal with these behaviors n a more effective way than the current lib/prog/Tribe one of busily trying to erase any difference between the races, despite the fact that those differences keep asserting themselves, and delegitimizing civilized behavior in the name of “diversity.”

            From a standpoint of sheer humanity, it makes no sense to ignore the causes, whatever they are, of black dysfunction in order to maintain elites’ myths about kumbaya.

            But as we see again and again, there is a particular racism that SJWs and DWLs have: they really don’t care that blacks are so self destructive. I’d say they wouldn’t have it any other way, since that ensures a constant supply of victims for them to “march” and hashtag and honk and hector about, providing a unifying focus for their religio-social fantasies.

            It becomes clearer to me as time goes on that there are people whose ancient race interests put them at war with western civilization rooted in Northern European ancestry and genome. It’s stupid, because they owe their existence to that civilization. But they are betting that those of us who made this civilization will give up without pushing back. They are also assuming that when we’re gone, they will be in charge and life will continue to be as good as it has been for them, under our leadership.

          • pcmustgo

            Hey, baby, I’m half Jewish… half German too…. Most Jews don’t hate whites… that’s paranoia…

          • Whitetrashgang

            Probably because he had to go to jail for a while, maybe?

          • Jail isn’t a big deal, and it sure beats getting tased, pepper-sprayed, beaten with a baton and THEN going to jail, let alone being shot several times.

      • Who Me?

        In the wild, animals always run from humans…

  • Easyrhino

    I thought Sharpton owed millions in back taxes. Why isn’t his bloated sack of guts behind bars?

    • Sick of it

      Criminals have more rights than anyone else. I’d rather it be the opposite.

          White privilege, bitchez!

    • Beloved Comrade

      He’s got protection from high places, like the White House for instance, and I’m not talking about Obama. Media also protect him, they approve of what he does by giving him his own talk show.

      Sharpton is a great tool to use against White America.

  • Rurik

    And yet The Conservative Treehouse reports that Ryan Julison is already there, coordinating the media aspects. I’m keeping in my mind the memory that the Rodney King beatdown also looked damning when edited. If Julison is on scene, there is grounds to suspect monkey business.

  • guest

    “We don’t want another Ferguson-type of circus here.”

    It’s very doubtful that’s going to stop Sharpton. He profits from the deaths and alleged victimization of his people, including criminals like Michael Brown.

    Wherever there’s a dead black shot by a cop, Sharpton will be there to spew out more of his “all blacks are victims of racism” lies.

    • ElComadreja

      Any place blacks gather turns into a circus.

      • Susan

        And it’s the corrupt government that forces civilized whites to live and work amongst them.

  • Sick of it

    “and proposed nationalizing the country’s police forces as a way to curb brutality against African-Americans.”

    And now we come to the point of all of this garbage.

    • Blackfish

      Exactly! If Sharpton had his way, the “national police force” would resemble the TSA or Postal Service – and be almost as effective!

      • Beloved Comrade

        Sharpton is nothing more than a buffoon. He doesn’t know a thing about a “national police force.” Those who run this country, NOT obama, however, do understand the implications of a national police force beholden to them and that is precisely what they want.

        Sharpton is nothing more than a tool and useful idiot used by TPTB to harass, control and divert White America’s attention away from their real plans to turn this country into a 3rd world hell.

        TPTB do not include obama, sharpton or any other black fool, they are expendable and when the time comes, they will be “expended with,” without haste.

        • ghettovalley

          We could recover from almost anything. If Russia decided to hit us with ten nukes tomorrow, we would still rebuild and we would still survive. But blacks have done more damage to this country than all the nuclear weapons in the world could ever cause. Blacks are slowly destroying America from within, like a terminal cancer. It breaks my heart to see it happen, to know what this country used to be, what it could have been, and to see what we’ve become instead.

          • Strider73

            That is why those side-by-side photo comparisons of Detroit and Hiroshima — today and in 1945 — are so compelling. (An image search will turn up several of them.) That is also why I often refer to blacks as “animate WMDs.”

          • Susan

            They’re destroying other civilized countries around the world as well. But the corrupt government, including US, are allowing it to happen—even encouraging it.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Hey! Al has got overdue IRS bills to pay — he will find someway to insert himself into this case. Al desperately wants a share of the massive pay-out this family is sure to receive. Maybe he’ll claim old evil Whitey got to them first.

          Some dads teach their sons how to throw a ball or ride a bike. Jackson teaches his son how to get over on the man.

          • Blackfish

            MLK’s kids are much the same! Making a handsome living off the memory of their dead dad.

          • ghettovalley

            MLK’s descendents should simply plaster his face on big tacky t-shirts, maybe pepper in the likeness of Trayvon, Mike Brown, and a few dead rappers, put one of his short, generic, and plagiarized quotes on the front and bam! Instant hit in the black community. They enjoy stupid stuff like that.

          • Beloved Comrade

            Stay tuned for Walter Scott T-shirts. The relatives will fight in the streets over who’s got the right to sell them.

          • I doubt they’ll bother. They have a good enough case against the city P.D., unlike Mike Brown’s parents, that selling T-shirts would be more work than it’s worth.

          • Correction: MLK’s kids are making a handsome living for their respective lawyers off the memory of their dead dad, by constantly suing one another.

          • Susan

            It’s really funny. Those Kind sibling disputes are just more proof that negroes cannot be civilized.

  • These must be the only blacks anywhere who don’t want a Ferguson type circus. Blacks love to go on camera and then watch themselves on TV later. They love to put on a big show for the “community.” Black narcissism. It’s actually fun to watch.

    • journey

      The black family whose son was killed by that NY Asian cop also told Sharpton to stay away. That case should also be classified as murder. The cop “debated” with his partner not to report the shooting. So the calling of an ambulance was critically delayed.

    • Beloved Comrade

      Maybe they don’t want their city burned to the ground. Or they’re aware enough that they know what happens if the city is destroyed, old Whitey packs up and leaves and blacks are left in charge. Detroit. Camden NJ. Birmingham AL.

  • Steve_in_Vermont

    Let’s nationalize Americas police. Al has an idea here. Just imagine how Washington is run now, and viewed by the public, (approval ratings in the single digits). Politicians can’t balance a budget, provide universal health care, develop an immigration program, and so on. But, according to Rev. Al, they could improve policing in this country. And he has the ear of the president and the mayor of NYC and is looked upon as a spokesman for the black community. This is something from Monty Python.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      They’re really good at derailing the country. Improving things for the little people is not on their agenda.

  • libertarian1234

    “We don’t want another Ferguson-type of circus here.”

    Of course not. They want to collect their millions and then be done with the whole affair, so the can strut their stuff and live in luxury.

    And this case here is a blatant, unnecessary shooting, so the pay off will be huge.

    I can just imagine the families of every one of these perps who were shot can hardly contain their glee. And when they learn it is declared justifiable, the switch over into “burn this m***** down” hoping for a payoff for trying to quell the rioting is their new mantra.

    Whoever said blacks can’t start up businesses in their own neighborhoods, and immigrants have to provide them stores to shop at, didn’t understand that they already have a nifty little profit-making effort underway involving the threat of rioting, looting, and killing, if they’re not compensated in some way.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      Of course not. They want to collect their millions and then be done with the whole affair, so the can strut their stuff and live in luxury.
      Right. They know the Good Reverend is going to want his cut. They’re smart enough to know they don’t need him. Like Jackson, he’s becoming passe’ in the black community. You’d think out of the ashes one of the younger bucks would rise up like a phoenix. But no. The opportunity is there, ripe for the plucking. Young negro males… you not hear the new leadership call??…..

    • Susan

      You’re right; those negroes don’t care that the kid was killed. They never do—dead kids are like winning the lottery.

  • journey

    Another black family who speaks up against black craziness. Cheers to them.

    • Blackfish

      I wouldn’t give them too much credit just yet. They may just not want to pay the Rev a cut of their action

      • Who Me?

        “They may just not want to pay the Rev a cut of their action.”
        Even that right there makes them smarter than about 85% of their fellow blacks.

        • Susan

          I don’t know; it was probably the lawyer who advised against the puke Sharpton. Lawyer gets more if there’s not another to divide the money with.

      • Susan

        That’s exactly right; the useless puke is nothing but an extortionist.

  • Sharpton said he has been in touch with the Scott family and their lawyers but insisted “we had no plans to go down.”No one to blackmail and hustle, I suppose.

  • Old Soldier

    BTW, does the family have a website up yet where I can order a T-shirt?

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      How about a GoF*ckme account?

  • cherrie greenbaum123

    How could they tell one of Obama’s closest friends and advisors to stay away?

  • Reverend Bacon

    I guess when you know you’ve got a big payday coming, there’s no need to bring in the agitators like Sharpton. It shows the family knows it was a bad shoot, and there’s no need for Sharpton’s “particular set of skills.”

    Interestingly, I remember someone once pointing out that the clear-cut cases like this are of far less interest to the BGI than the ones like St. Skittles or St. Swisher. No one disputes what happened here, and so there’s no real ground for them to gain. In Sanford, they insisted on trying to make it about SYG laws, concealed carry by watchmen, etc.

  • Lee_CPA

    “Sharpton said he has been in touch with the Scott family and their lawyers…”
    Translation: The family is lawyered up and don’t want a Sharpton circus to get in the way of their potential financial windfall.

    • ghettovalley

      This is just a small taste of the future of America. They’re going to keep breeding at ridiculous rates, and as their share of the population grows so will the level of this kind of nonsense in our government and society. History shows us that all multiethnic multicultural empires fall, and when it happens things get ugly. With the current state of race relations in this country it seems almost inevitable. Eventually when the whole country comes crashing down because of the dumb brown mulatto masses inability to run anything other than a crack den or pimping business, we will be a small and hated minority in our own country and our descendants will be hunted down and killed like dogs in the streets.

      • Beloved Comrade

        It’s important to keep in mind that blacks are in charge of exactly nothing and that includes POTUS. They do what they do because they are allowed to get away with what they do, such as destroying White-built cities and attacking and assaulting Whites at will, all while their crimes are covered up by the media.

        The bigger, more pressing issue is the ongoing war on Whites. Blacks are a tool of other forces used to tear apart White America.

        Blacks do not control the government, major media, financial institutions, federal reserve or academia top to bottom. That is where the power, and more importantly money in this country lies, and whoever controls money controls power and gets to set the narrative and agenda. A narrative and agenda that are decidedly, overwhelmingly anti-White. We eliminate or overcome them and blacks will be taken care of easily and quickly.

        • ghettovalley

          As it stands now, you’re correct. But what about fifty years from now? One hundred? Once everything has been looted, the racial demographics have shifted, and the final nail is in the coffin. What kind of country are we leaving for our descendants? Certainly not the same America we know and love. That America is already gone, and has been replaced with something else.

        • Susan

    Again, I believe in God just because of things like this. Even if you don’t believe that we, us I, you, them, and all of us caused this because we were all in Adam, the least you could do is realize that this type of reality is just screwed up! You don’t claim to be a “co-conspirator” with the first man. I understand – it was hard for me to accept. You and I both would have done the same thing, given the opportunity. God gave us paradise, we screwed it up with our arrogance and self indulgence. I am just amazed that the creator who brought us the beauty of the Galilean moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, the awesomeness of the Milky Way, and the power of a super nova could have patience with such petulant, arrogant, and pathological creatures.

      Great sentiments, David. As theologian R.C. Sproul points out, how when it comes to the doctrine of Salvation, world opinion is that there are many paths of Salvation, which directly contradicts Jesus as the one and only way, for all. Considering the magnitude of sin and wickedness, and its end result, death, and that includes us all, rather than marvel why there aren’t more paths to Heaven, we should wonder why there is even a way at all.

    • Hank Richter

      Why do you say “we” screwed it up, I was born in 1975 and the world is what it is, I mind my own business, never killed anyone or robbed anyone, if I’m flawed it’s because I was born that way, may as well blame me for having 2 eyes and 10 toes.

  • We already have a “national police force” – several of them in fact. One of these national police forces is the INS, which has been ordered by President Orangutan to stop doing its job. Another is the BATF, which was ordered by President Orangutan and his flunky enforcer Eric Holder to run guns to Mexican narco gangs. Holder was cited for contempt of Congress for refusing to provide the documentation on the latter, except the US attorney for the Washington DC area has refused to serve the citation, claiming that “he doesn’t have to”. This should come as no surprise, as Eric Holder is that buffoon’s boss (a flunky’s flunky: how low can one go?)
