Shocker: Sharpton Can Still Get Arrested

From his fans at the Associated Press:

Sharpton arrested as hundreds protest NYC police shooting

By TOM HAYS and DAVID B. CARUSO, Associated Press Writers

NEW YORK – The Rev. Al Sharpton was arrested at the Brooklyn Bridge on Wednesday as he and hundreds of demonstrators blocked traffic to protest the acquittal of three detectives in the 50-bullet shooting of an unarmed black man on his wedding day.

Sharpton, two survivors of the shooting and the slain man’s fiancee were among about a dozen people arrested on disorderly conduct charges near the base of the bridge. Police led away demonstrators at several other bridges and tunnels in the city…

Sharpton, shooting survivors Trent Benefield and Joseph Guzman, and Bell’s fiancee, Nicole Paultre Bell, lined up and peacefully put their hands behind their backs as police put plastic handcuffs on them. Sharpton and Bell were placed in a police vehicle…

Bell was black, as are his friends Benefield and Guzman; the three officers acquitted in the case are Hispanic, black and white…

Please note how the article neglects to mention that the “victim” was trying to run over a police officer with his automobile.

The AP should be charged with inciting a riot.

Of course that is something they do on a near daily basis.
