President Obama said Thursday that many Americans feel there’s a “deep unfairness” about how laws are applied on a day to basis, responding to the news a day earlier of a New York City police officer who was not indicted for choking an unarmed black man.

Indeed, Mr. Sharpton’s influence and visibility have reached new heights this year, fueled by his close relationships with the mayor and the president.
Obscured in his ascent, however, has been his troubling financial past, which continues to shadow his present.
Mr. Sharpton has regularly sidestepped the sorts of obligations most people see as inevitable, like taxes, rent and other bills. Records reviewed by The New York Times show more than $4.5 million in current state and federal tax liens against him and his for-profit businesses.
Yet he’s pretty much a de facto Vice President. The unfairness of it all.
