NEW YORK (AP) - Hundreds of angry people marched through Harlem on Saturday after the Rev. Al Sharpton promised to "close this city down" to protest the acquittals of three police detectives in the 50-shot barrage that killed a groom on his wedding day and wounded two friends.

The police department needs to be shut down for their corruption so if the courts wont do it then the people will have to.

Oh Sharpton please shut up! I'm black i believe the verdict was wrong and race has nothing to do with it. Just shut up.

If Sharpton wants to make himself useful go to LA and push Jamiel's law. A few blacks are getting shot up there for nothing more than having the wrong skin color.

How about tackling black-on-black murder. It appears that is a bigger issue.

I still don't see how they shoot some guy 50 times. By 3 officers. They'd have to re-clip and unload all over again.

Something just doesn't add up.

I thought he was too busy shutting down the black rappers using the n word?
How much is he making in interest on the money he fronted Bell's family and friends while waiting for the civil trial?

This is one "Reverend" who should meet Jesus sooner rather than later.

Oh, no. He's so freakin' annoying.
And, knowing that I am in a 50 mile radius of him, makes me mad.
