Rev. Al threatened riots last year if Zimmerman was not incarcerated before trial. That was all that was needed to to get the local authorities to lock up Zimmerman. Sharton’s methods work to scare politicians to do his bidding.

If George Zimmerman is not arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin soon, theRev. Al Sharpton will call for an escalation in peaceful civil disobedience and economic sanctions.
Sharpton would not say the efforts would be taken against the city of Sanford specifically, but he has been critical of the police department’s handling of the case.
Annnnnd...That would be also called EXTORTION....something we caved into in the sixties..”Just don’t riot..we ‘ll send you a monthly pay off,ie welfare. The Mob never had it that easy.
I pretty much agree with that, except it was more than just ol' Al. The City Manager, who didn't need any encouragement from Tawana Al, was the one person in a position to affect the circumstances, and did a lot to make Zimmerman's arrest and persecution possible. He fired the Chief of Police who didn't want to arrest Zimmerman. The Governor had to appoint a Special Prosecutor because the local ones didn't want to charge him. The criminal Special Prosecutor had to short-circuit the Grand Jury system because it was likely the GJ wouldn't charge him either.
But it was Al's threats that got Holder involved, and the RINO Governor and AG on board the railroad. I don't think he's going to be as successful this weekend.
In the weeks ahead it will be interesting to see of Holder even tries to fake a "reason" for the DoJ to charge, prosecute and jail Zimmerman again. We've all pointed out he can't prove Zimmerman "denied Martin his Civil Rights," but I'll bet he gets dragged to court and jail again for no specific reason at all.
