    Your typical knee jerk reaction while loathsome and tiring is not surprising. "The sky is falling, the sky is falling", again. Don't you get tired of saying that?

    Which laws have they broken? Show me.

    Rational people who are in control of their emotions are no doubt disturbed by what the NBP has said and that would include all races. Imagine that! Do 99.99% of the people in America agree with the NBP? Of course not. Believing otherwise is ridiculous. Are federal, state and local law enforcement keeping a close eye on the NBP? Yes, just like they have kept their eyes on white racist groups. Bold ignorant speech is toward no specific person or government is not against the law. It's dumber than a bag of hammers.

    I've always found that the people who are most disturbed by mouthy ignorant racists are the mouthy ignorant racists of the opposite color.

    Risky I most always agree with you...I agree with you more than most...but I cant this time....The black Panthers IS a hate group just like any other hate group...there is no "righteous" hate group and then hate hate groups...the black panthers did try to intimidate everyone at every poll they were at....by being dressed in paramilitary clothing standing in groups of more than one near entrances and carrying clubs and sticks and making threatening comments and gestures.....The black Panthers are no better than any other hate group....


    The New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case, sometimes known simply as the Black Panther Case, is a political controversy in the United States concerning an incident that occurred during the 2008 election. The New Black Panther Party and two of its members, Minister King Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson, were charged with voter intimidation for their conduct outside a polling station in Philadelphia. The Department of Justice later narrowed the charges against Minister King Shabazz and dismissed the charges against the New Black Panther Party and Jerry Jackson. The decision to dismiss the charges has led to accusations that the Department of Justice under the Obama administration is biased against white victims and unwilling to prosecute minorities for civil rights violations. These charges have been most notably made by J. Christian Adams, who in May 2010 resigned his post in the Department of Justice in protest over the Obama Administration's perceived mishandling of the case, and by his former supervisor Christopher Coates.

    Re: New Black Panthers: Where is the DOJ?

    I haven't read through this entire thread, but I really do think it would be nice if people could drop the need to defend their political turf one way or the other and base their politics on values instead of identity. People who identify too strongly as right defend all sorts of cr@p and people who identify too strongly as left defend all sorts of cr@p, and both toss out all sorts of tu toque arguments in doing so. The sacred cows of the left are just as prevalent as those of the right, and to just as thorough a degree. Where the right can be racist, the left can be reverse racist, and where the right tries to mask their racism with all sorts of double talk, the left has its own brand of double talk when it comes to the double standards of reverse racism.

    Why not just denounce these cretins as racists, form policies that determine the line between free speech and intimidation and do so in exactly the same way you would for Fred Phelps, Radical Islamists, or any other group promoting hate no matter the political spin we might place on their doing so?

    Totally true. When the Elkton, MD, KKK marched in Newark, DE, there were more cops than KKK'ers. But the best part is ... the KKK'ers and cops totaled more than the "crowd" of rubberneckers who went to get free entertainment.

    Nevertheless, you're wrong and I'm correct when viewing the responses by both DoJs. It all returns to the basic fact that there was no violation of federal election law AND that the Philadelphia PD saw nothing more than one fool with a nightstick - a fool who left when told to leave.
    The news reporters showed at least 3 (on nightly news). The Philly cops ... well let's say ... didn't set any speed records showing up.

    Check your source. An automatic Glock 9MM is a model G18. Any of them built after the assault weapons ban in the mid 80s is illegal here in the states, and if you happen to run across one built pre ban it will cost upwards of $5000 and require a Class 3 stamp which takes a minimum of 4 months to get approval for. Your source has at least one glaring error leading one to wonder what else in the story may be embellished. If Arizona has open carry he wasn't breaking any laws carrying a SEMI auto Glock such as a G17 or G19. Bottom line is if your source were correct the DOJ would not have walked away from a guy with a G18 without looking in to it to see if he was legal to have it. The consequences for possessing one (without the proper documentation) are huge and he certainly would have been investigated.

    Re: New Black Panthers: Where is the DOJ?

    Can someone define voter intimidation for me as it relates to the 2008 actions of the Black Panthers not prosecuted by the DOJ? Stupid is not the same as voter intimidation, IMHO.

    Re: New Black Panthers: Where is the DOJ?

    Whoa! What the heck?

    I need to apologize. I thought these guys where basically doing something similar as the New York City Guardian Angels thinking they were PROTECTING voters and the polling place in what I assumed was an all black neighborhood. Wherever politics is an ingredient, political opportunist types like to make hay in order to demonize their political opposition. Not sure if that last video was related to the 2008 election but I'm speechless over the level of racism.

    Equating the Guardian Angels to the Black Panthers. Freshman English (also HS English) taught that there was such a thing as FAULTY ANALOGY. Looks to me like this is a textbook example of that.
