By Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - It was not the first time the Reverend Al Sharpton made his way to City Hall in a fiery mood to scold a mayor about New York City police officers killing an unarmed black man. Still, something about Sharpton's appearance with Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner Bill Bratton late last month left some observers, and possibly even some of the participants, feeling off-kilter. The event, called to discuss the death of a Staten Island man put in a choke hold by police as they arrested him for selling untaxed cigarettes, highlighted the adjustments that de Blasio and Sharpton, who has often been kept at arm's length at City Hall, are having to make since the liberal mayor's election. It is an open question whether Sharpton, for years a polarizing figure who many saw as inflammatory, wields more power under de Blasio, the city's most progressive mayor in a generation, than he did with the more conservative Rudy Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg.
