(I'm coming for you Sharpton)
Apparently Al Sharpton is picking up the slack for the Dog the Bounty Hunter since his son flipped on him a few weeks ago.
These two Shawshank fans snuck out their prison cell on some Prison Break shit and were eventually caught but not before King Ambulance Chaser Al Sharpton tried to get some shine off this spectacle.
Even though his ad hoc mission collapsed, Sharpton still tried to take credit for the arrest. "Clearly his calling me ... helped lead to the conclusion," Sharpton said. "I hope that justice for all parties will be served."
The Marshals Service denied Sharpton's presence had anything to do with the arrest, and New Jersey prosecutors blasted him for his attempted intervention, which they said bought Blunt precious hours on the run.
Union County Prosecutor Ted Romankow said Sharpton never told him Blunt might have fled to Mexico - and the lawman first learned about Sharpton's stunt in Wednesday's News. "I said, 'Whoa, Mexico?'" said Romankow, who conceded jail guards didn't notice Blunt's original escape for 20 hours. "I was a little surprised."
Officials with Sharpton's National Action Network insist they informed NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly about the Mexico mission. An NYPD source said Sharpton told Kelly only that a friend was trying to get Blunt to surrender and never mentioned Sharpton was going to Mexico.
It's not Sharpton's first embarrassment. He famously defended Tawana Brawley even after the teen's rape claim was debunked and turned up in an FBI surveillance tape discussing a drug deal with a reputed mobster.
Blunt was awaiting trial on robbery and weapons charges when he broke out of the Union County Jail with Jose Espinosa, 20.
The pair stole a metal wheel from a storage room and used it to gradually pound a hole through a cinder block wall in Espinosa's cell. They covered up the hole with nudie pictures, just like a character did in the hit movie "The Shawshank Redemption."
They apparently escaped Dec. 14, but guards did not realize they were gone for nearly an entire day. Blunt even left a cheeky note thanking jail guard Rudolph Zurick for his help. Zurick later committed suicide.
Unlike Blunt, Espinosa didn't make it far. Cops busted him Tuesday a few blocks away from the jail in a girlfriend's basement apartment, where he had been hiding out with a twisted ankle.
Obstruction of justice... awesome!
This comes on the heels of some white twit on the Golf Channel who called for Tiger Woods to be lynched. As the stalwart defender of the Civil Rights that he is Tiger Woods said, "That's OK!" and then Sharpton jumped in and called for the announcer to be fired.
This woman should lose her job for that shit but Al Sharpton, with his record of corruption, opportunism and divisiveness is not the dude to trumpet these issues anymore, especially after going around the police to play bounty hunter. Get lost Sharpton.
Play golf, marry a white woman, join a country club and all that. But maintain awareness.
Why was Barack Obama able to pull off the mixed black man with different interests and background routine and maintain his sense of blackness, while Tiger Woods failed so miserably?
Al Sharpton, for getting your Bubs on, you are the Snitch of the Week. Tiger should lynch himself.
