    Wouldnt they have to be tried first in order for double jeopardy to come into play?

    Or, is Pennsylvania just as guilty as the Feds of not going after a crime?
    Very possible.

    As for the douche hating on whites, I wonder why that is? I bet his hatred is more for those who are successful (not saying that others aren't successful) than actual race difference. I bet he hates successful blacks as much as the previously mentioned group.
    In my experiences with BPs they hate anyone that isnt black. Ive been called a spic by them as much a idiot whites have called me one. They usually call blacks who make peace with the white man as they put it a house you know what.

    1. Don't know. It depends on PA law. If PA has state laws to this effect, then the answer would be yes.
    2. No. State and Federal charges are not regarded as being the same.

    Now I've seen everything. You quoted yourself to support your arguement.

    Haha, no, although that would be hilarious. I said that I wrote an article about it and someone (you?) asked me what the headline was. I was in no way using that as an example of how media covered Joe the plumber.

    Re: Ex-Official Accuses Justice Department of Racial Bias in Black Panther Case

    Does everybody arguing in this thread understand that the New Black Panthers were never charged with a crime at all, even by the career attorneys at the DoJ who wanted to continue the lawsuits? This was a civil lawsuit for an injunction (restraining order), not a criminal prosecution. The reason why Holder dropped the suits that he did drop is probably that he couldn't show cause for the injunction and he wouldn't have gotten them. And, by the way, they did pursue the suit and obtain an injunction against one of the men doing the voter intimidation.

    It seems to me that a lot of the people who are so up in arms about this dummied up non-controversy keep going on and on about how the New Black Panthers committed a crime and should have been prosecuted and evidently have absolutely no clue what actually happened.

    Actually, these two black panthers were not only charged with a crime, but they were convicted of a crime.

    Good points, but what the hell do I know?

    What's your point, exactly? The issue here is a civil complaint that the DoJ dropped, and my point is that no criminal charges were ever dropped.

    You weren't using it as an example, you used it to support your assertion that the media attacks on Joe were justified. If you trace the discussion back, you used it to support your last sentence in post #66.

    You quoted yourself in support of your arguement.
