Sharpton Guilty, Sentenced to Time Served
Al Sharpton's disorderly conduct trial, obtained for his civil disobedience (blocking the Brooklyn Bridge) during the Sean Bell verdict protests last May, has resulted in a guilty verdict. But the Reverend was sentenced to time served (Sharpton spent five or six hours in jail after his arrest), so Sharpton-haters are having a hard time raising a stiffy over it, and no one else cares.
