Al Sharpton’s reported half-brother, Kenneth Glasgow, was arrested and charged with capital murder in Alabama just days after advocating for gun control during the nationwide “March for Our Lives” rally.
Glasgow, 52, will face justice after woman was found shot to death in a wrecked car. Police said she suffered one gunshot wound to the head. A second suspect, Jaime Townes, was also arrested.
Townes was reportedly angry at the time of the murder because he believed the victim, Breunia Jennings, had stolen his car, Dothan Police Chief Steve Parrish said during a news conference on Monday.
“Instead of him notifying law enforcement, he took matters in his own hands and jumped in Mr. Glasgow’s vehicle to find Breunia Jennings,” the police chief added.
Glasgow has regularly referred to himself as Rev. Kenny Sharpton Glasgow and has been pictured with powerful Democrats like Hillary Clinton. His group, Ordinary People Society, marched for gun control just days before he was arrested.
Glasgow said in court on Tuesday that he doesn’t understand why he’s facing capital murder charges.
But he could still be in major trouble if he aided or abetted Townes in the crime, the Dothan Eagle reported:
Under Alabama Code 13A-2-23, “a person is legally accountable for the behavior of another constituting a criminal act if, with the intent to promote or assist the commission of the offense (1) he procures, induces, or causes such other person to commit the offense; or (2) he aids or abets such other person in committing the offense; or (3) having a legal duty to prevent the commission of the offense, he fails to make an effort he is legally required to make.”
“I’m not responsible for what someone else does. He just asked me for a ride to take him to look for his car,” the Sharpton relative said in court.
