Al Capone Owed the IRS $250,000 and was sentenced to prison where he died before being released….PapaMikeT
An investigation by The New York Times found that Rev. Al Sharpton owes more than $4.5 million in current state and federal taxes. Al Sharpton has owed more than $4,000,000….that’s MILLIONS! and he has NEVER spent ONE night in prison, BUT he has spent many nights in the Obama White House!!….
The figure includes taxes from Sharpton’s personal income as well as from his for-profit company, Raw Talent and Revals Communications. Sharpton apparently owes more than $3 million in personal federal tax liens and $777,657 in state tax liens. Raw Talent and Revals Communications, meanwhile, owe another $717,329 in state and federal tax liens.
Sharpton’s non-profit company, the National Action Network, has apparently underpaid the government federal taxes as well. The National Action Network’s tax liability increased from $900,000 in 2003 to almost $1.9 million in 2006. Meghan DeMaria

In an interview with the Baltimore Sun, Al Sharpton suggested a controversial measure to help restore justice between police and the community.
“We need the Justice Department to step in and take over policing in this country. In the 20th century…we’re going to have to fight states’ rights in terms of closing down police cases. Police must be held accountable.
I don’t think all police are bad. I don’t even think even think most are bad. But those who are need to be held accountable.”
One Twitter user put it like this:
We spoke to Chip Pierce, who is a former Certified Law Enforcement officer that worked in the Commonwealth of Virginia from 1998 till 1996 about Sharpton’s idea. Here’s what he had to say:
To specifically address the statement is that it is NOT constitutional. Every State Constitution makes the Sheriff the highest ranking LE officer in each county. That is because they are an elected official. So technically the Sheriff has more authority than the FBI or any other LE agency.
Second, Federal Agents can NOT enforce state or local law, only federal law. Therefore every law would also have to be passed at the federal level. It could never work.
Then, Pierce explained how countries that have federalized their police still use local law enforcement:
Even in Countries that have Federal Police forces like Canada and Mexico they still have local constables or police or sheriffs to handle the day to day things like domestics and court security and local violations.
Based on Pierce’s comments, Sharpton’s proposal isn’t practical or even legal.
