Al Sharpton’s Activist Brother Charged In Gun Murder One Day After Attending #MarchForOurLives

On Saturday, leftist activist Rev. Kenneth Glasgow — the half-brother of former MSNBC host and professional race-baiter Rev. Al Sharpton — attended the anti-gun March for Our Lives rally. The next day, ironically, Glasgow was allegedly involved in a deadly shooting for which he's been charged with capital murder.

Dothan, Alabama police officers have linked Glasgow to the murder of Breunia Jennings, 23, who was shot in the head by Jamie Townes, 26. The reverend was in Townes' car at the time of the murder.

The Washington Examiner reports, "Dothan Police Chief Steve Parrish said that Glasgow and Townes allegedly searched for Jennings, who they believe had stolen Townes’ car. When they found her, Townes allegedly shot Jennings as she drove, hitting her in the head. She died later."

"Instead of him notifying law enforcement, he took matters in his own hands and jumped in Mr. Glasgow's vehicle to find Breunia Jennings," Chief Parrish told the Dothan Eagle.

Under Alabama aiding and abetting law, the 52-year-old, although he reportedly did not pull the trigger, is culpable for the murder, notes the Examiner.

Glasgow was protesting at the anti-gun March for Our Lives rally a day before the shooting. "The shooting occurred late Sunday night. I do not know where he was prior to the incident. It has been reported by several local outlets that he attended a similar event on Saturday," a police spokesman said.

Glasgow, an ex-convict, founded a ministry called called The Ordinary People Society in 1999.

In the past, he's teamed up with his half-brother for leftist causes and notably protested the killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida.

In July 2013, Glasgow was the keynote speaker at a "Justice for Trayvon" protest event organized by Sharpton's National Action Network (NAN), reports AL.com.

Glasgow joined with approximately 500 demonstrators as they marched from the Frank M. Johnson Federal Courthouse up legendary Dexter Avenue Saturday in a noon time rally that coincided with at least 101 across the country.

"We have too many killings among our own," Glasgow said at the event. "We have to stop the violence in our own backyard. We've got to stop the violence, period."
