At first you want to think (and by you I mean NYC public school educated half wits who need someone to think for them) he did this to protect his neighborhood from drugs, specifically drugs being sold by Italian organized crime. Now, if go to to Sheepshead Bay Crooklyn talking that noise that Italians specially Cossa Nostra make money by selling drugs, you would get shot. Guess what my NYC Public School and Catholic School educated Strombolis, ITALIAN MOB MAKE THEIR MONEY BY SELLING DRUGS TOO!

Little Italy English: A Rat
Ghetto English: A Snitch
So, how does someone become an informant for the FBI?
Well, in order to be a really good source of information, you have to have unique access to the criminal target. Hmmm, how would Sharpton have special access to the criminal target? Maybe the informant has been dealing with the criminal target, got caught, and offered to get a pass if he/she was willing to be a rat/snitch? Yeap, that's how it happens and how it happened with Al.
Apparently, Al was trafficking drugs into Crooklyn. He was a distributor for the Genovese crime family. Fuck.

Oh, and this fat motherfucker not only sold drugs to his people, he ran for fucking president.
BTW, those of us from the BK knew this brotha was into some dirt, before the world heard of him. But that was just some of us who were not lit up on the drugs he sold. Brooklyn, WAKE UP!
