EXCERPT:

SHARPTON: “I do. I think that the jury decided that there was no defense here. In order to have a defense you need an offense. And that is tantamount to a lynching. You decide, therefore, based on no life extenuating circumstance, or any threat to you, to lynch this guy, to kill this guy.”
