Reverend Al
9 February 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Before Reverend Al Sharpton moved on to bigger and better things and started looking like a statesman he was a whole lot like the Reverend Darnell Potter who starts arts popping up every so often in the Blue Bloods series. Ato Essandoh has become a semi-regular on the Blue Bloods series as a regular antagonist for the Reagan family.

A perpetrator who Donnie Wahlberg and Marissa Ramirez caught in the act of holding up a convenience store is chased into an apartment where the dirtbag throws himself out the window and yells police brutality. Essandoh is always ready to answer that call and he takes up the cause of the victim.

He also adds a little extortion in his meeting with Tom Selleck. Man does not lack for chutzpah.

You have to see how this comes out.
