"Al Sharpton's Secret Work as an FBI Informant" was published by "The Smoking Gun" on April 7, 2014.
Excerpts: "A lengthy investigation by The Smoking Gun has uncovered remarkable details about Sharpton’s past work as an informant for a joint organized crime task force comprised of FBI agents and NYPD detectives, as well as his dealings with an assortment of wiseguys . . . Like almost every other FBI informant, Sharpton was solely an information source. The parameters of his cooperation did not include Sharpton ever surfacing publicly or testifying on a witness stand."

The NY Daily News reports that after being exposed, Al Sharpton said, “I encourage kids all the time to work with law enforcement. You’re acting like it’s a scandal for me to do that."
Ordinarily, such reports are not released until after an FBI informant dies, like Ernest C. Withers, photojournalist for the civil rights movement.
Question: Do you believe that Al Sharpton's work as an FBI informant is a good example for our youths of "working with law enforcement"?
