The Rev. Al Sharpton plans to be in North Charleston this weekend to preach at a church in the aftermath of the fatal shooting of a black man by a white officer after a traffic stop.

Sharpton told The Associated Press on Friday that his message to the congregation of the Charity Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday will be that people pursue justice “in a peaceful, legal way.”

Anthony Scott, the brother of victim Walter L. Scott, tells The Associated Press, that a representative of Sharpton’s National Action Network has been working with family since the shooting last weekend.

Sharpton says he will not attend Scott’s funeral Saturday because of a scheduling conflict. Anthony Scott says the funeral is open to the public.

Sharpton says he plans to preach Sunday morning and then meet privately with members of the Scott family. Later in the day he plans to attend a vigil at the site where Walter Scott was shot.

  2. All HELL is about to BREAK LOOSE in SOUTH CAROLINA!

    Sharpton is expected to preach at Charity Missionary Baptist Church before attending a vigil near the scene of the shooting.

    Scott, a BLACK MAN was shot April 4 and former WHITE Police officer Michael Slager initially said he fired after a tussle over his department-issued Taser. Dramatic witness video showed that Slager fired eight times as Scott ran away. Slager was fired and has been charged with murder.

    Scott was a father of four and Coast Guard veteran whose death sparked outrage as another instance of a white law officer fatally shooting an unarmed black man under questionable circumstances.

    Al Sharpton comes in to get the PARTY started: http://www.aol.com/article/2015/04/12/sharpton-expected-to-preach-attend-shooting-vigil-in-sc/21171212/?icid=maing-grid7%7Cmaing15%7Cdl1%7Csec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D642391
