By Randall Hill NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - Civil rights leader Reverend Al Sharpton on Sunday praised the mayor of a South Carolina town where a white patrolman was charged with murder after the fatal shooting of a black man and said other officers there should face charges. New York-based Sharpton said he hoped the prosecution of the officer, who shot Walter Scott in the back on April 4, would mark a turning point in the United States. "Rather than duck, the mayor stood up," Sharpton said of North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey, who attended Sunday's service at a local church where Sharpton spoke. Sharpton said it seemed providential that "way down in South Carolina, where we are still protesting the Confederate flag, that in the Deep South, a mayor and police chief did what we couldn’t get mayors in the North and the Midwest to do." Sharpton told the New York Times he would urge authorities to prosecute a black police officer, Clarence Habersham, who arrived on the scene just after Scott was fatally shot.
