I\’ll make this short and to the point.
Last year, Dominique Sharpton, al sharpton\’s daughter, sprained/twisted her ankle due, she claims, to an uneven sidewalk, while walking down the street in New York\’s SoHo district (where my wife and I were last night, by the way). The
She thereupon sued the city of New York for $5 million, on the grounds that her ankle sprain/twist caused grievous permanent injuries.
It probably will be hard to collect that $5 million, though….because since her grievous permanent injuries occurred she has put up instagrams of herself during a mountain climbing expedition – pictures New York city lawyers have warned her not to delete (which, at this point, would not matter, since I have no doubt they were saved by those same lawyers).
But just in case they didn\’t, here is a little montage put together by London\’s Daily Mail, from her expedition, with a friend, to Red Rock Canyon, Nevada — after filing suit.
Call me a hopeless pessimist but, assuming those pictures are for real, somehow I can\’t help thinking they have the potential to damage her chances in that lawsuit.
But all is not lost. Maybe she can organize a protest march. “No $5 million, no peace”.
I would end this blog by sarcastically commenting “how proud her father must be”….except I suspect he really is.
