The govt wanted Al Capone for his other crimes and as often occurs, used the IRS or some unrelated govt agency to finally bring the person to justice. And Al Capone was white.
Let’s face it, the ONLY reason Al Sharpton isn’t in prison is because he’s black and is a master manipulator. He’s also a deceitful douchebag who is not above trying to ruin someone’s career who was completely innocent…like the NY prosecutor, Steven Pagones, accused of raping the black girl in 1987-88, Tawana Brawley, who, it was determined, was a complete liar.
Of all the well known people who should be in prison and aren’t, Al Sharpton is the NUMBER 1 candidate. But he’s black and blacks have so few “heroes”, assholes like Sharpton will stay on the street, because instead of actual logic dictating his fate, blacks would say he was set up and he was a target because he was a powerful black man. He’s a common thug and asshole, deserving of a lengthy prison visit.
