Al Sharpton Michael Slager Walter Scott

Family tells Sharpton to stay away

9 Apr, 2015

A source close the Scott family says they do not want the same kind of media attention that surrounded the death of Michael Brown:

We don’t want another Ferguson type of circus here.

Scott family attorney says said they appreciate Sharpton’s support but “the funeral is only going to be close family members.”

The Reverend Al has called and expressed his support and condolences. The family is very appreciative.

Sharpton says he has been in touch with the Scott family and their lawyers but insists he has no plans to go down.

They are in mourning and we would never come unless they asked. We’re willing to be helpful to the family but only when needed.
