Adam Sharp of Progressives Today confronted federal informant Rev. Al Sharpton in Ferguson, Missouri, on Tuesday.

The leader of the National Action Network traveled to Missouri and called for nonviolence and the arrest of the unidentified police officer accused of shooting 18-year old Michael Brown.

Sharpton was converted into a snitch for the FBI in 1983 after he was caught on tape negotiating a cocaine deal.

Sharp asked Sharpton about graffiti sprayed on a store burned down in response to the incident. Sharpton denied acting as an informant for the government despite plenty of evidence to the contrary.


Adam Sharp: Sir, the term “Snitches Get Stitches” was spray painted on the burned out QuikTrip. Since you are a federal snitch, sir, do you fear for your life?

Al Sharpton: I’m not a snitch. But today I want to tell the feds about a cop that needs to go to jail.

Sharp: Are you in fear for your life being a federal informant and…

Sharpton: I want to inform on this policeman today.

Sharp: Are you here to snitch on the rioters?… Are you here to work with your FBI partners?

Sharpton: (no response)
