Rev. Al Sharpton Preaches the Roof Off Michael Brown’s Funeral (VIDEO)

Rev. Al Sharpton, a vocal civil rights leader and MSNBC primetime host, gave the eulogy at the funeral of Michael Brown on Monday in Ferguson, Missouri.
Sharpton’s speech was notable not just for its decibel level, but more so for its call-to-action that we should not let Brown’s death be in vain. The Reverend was keeping it VERY real about the current state of policing in the U.S. and where we stand as both black and American communities. We must do better and expect more from the powers that be.
Sharpton has been on the ground and in close contact with Brown’s family since just after his shooting death on August 9. Brown, who was unarmed at the time, was killed by Officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson Police Department after an apparent shoplifting incident.
