National Action Network (NAN) and Rev. Al Sharpton, responding to the recent rash of shootings that have plagued the country are entering into the final weekend of “Occupy the Corners. For the past four weekends NAN and community activists, politicians, church leaders, and the like, have stood on corners in “hotspot” areas throughout the city, watching for any signs of violence, talking to residents, and take back the streets. OTC was not a patrol, says Sharpton, but an opportunity to show strong real-life neighborly support in our communities most plagued by gun violence.
