There was no riot in the first case, and in the second, "some commentators" saw his remarks as "inflaming".

He is no saint, by no means, but I don't understand your hatred voiced towards him either.

Wow...relating Tawana Brawley and the Crown Heights Riot is a HUGE stretch. HUGE.

The connection only works in a "six Degree's of Kevin Bacon" type way...NOOOOO relation at all.

Quite right, and the info on the second still doesn't answer my question. How was Sharpton implicated in Rosenbaum's death?

Again, and this anwers my question how?

If you're going to blame someone for riots and murder, you'd damn well better have evidence.

Well, accusations are there.
Now you have to prove your case.
What riot did Sharpton cause regarding the Tawana Brawley incident?
How is Sharpton to be made responsible for the riot and succeeding death of Yankel Rosenbaum?

"Sharpton has been seen by some commentators as inflaming tensions with remarks such as "If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house" and referring to Jews as "diamond merchants." [1], [2], [3], [4], [5]

Sharpton marched through Crown Heights and in front of "770", shortly after the riot, with about 400 noisy protesters (who chanted "Whose streets? Our streets!" and "No justice, no peace!"), in spite of Mayor David Dinkins' attempts to keep the march from happening."

Justin, do you know WHEN Rosenbaum was killed, and WHEN the riot broke out, versus when Sharpton got involved?

Opinion of commentators...not actual fact!

Are you saying that Sharpton's comments lead directly to the death of Rosenbaum? Are you even sure that those comments were made before Rosenbaum's death?

And leading a march is hardly the same as killing someone. That march, from the wording in the article, took place after the riot and death, also.

We are lucky there are courts and some rules in judging.
This wouldn't considered being evidence of anything. To the contrary, your accusations would get you in serious trouble if you went public with it the way you put it.

The riot broke out in 1991 in Crown Heights, NY. Sharpton inflamed the the neighborhood sparking the riots, killing an innocent person.
