Monday morning, appearing on the Tom Joyner Show, Al Sharpton suggests George Zimmerman was not prosecuted on the merits of the Trayvon Martin case but more because of the political pressure Sharpton placed on Florida officials with protests and media attention.

REV. AL SHARPTON: “Let’s not act like we got in the Florida case because of the merits, we got there by rallying, by protesting and by raising the issue.

TOM JOYNER: That’s true. That’s right.”
