    EDIT: I've said my part on this. I will not lament about the pathetic Tea bagger party further. But what libertarians want to do to the constitution is unacceptable from a minority mind set in my humble opinion of course.
    Yes, you support racism and violence at polling places. Nothing could be more clear.

    "Do you think these Black Panthers should be prosecuted for voter intimidation"

    Well any time some one thinks a crime was committed people should be "prosecuted" which only means to initiate and conduct legal proceedings.

    So the obvious vote is YES, there could POSSIBLY been something illegal going on.

    Now on to the other point, Im not familiar with the laws on this situation but if this video is all the evidence, there is no proof a crime was committed IMO and Im not surprised if any judge, magistrate etc would look at the video and say is that it? and if nothing else was produced dismiss and end prosecuting.

    Now Im not saying those guys were innocent Im just pointing out how law works, the video convicts them of nothing that i know of. People could debate all day whether they think it was right, wrong or appropriate or not but Im thinking LAW. Im not aware of any laws they broke by watching the video but if there is more evidence and they are guilty of something then "throw the book them".
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.

    Granted Philly is the land of savages, I still say yes they should be prosecuted and locked up.

    America tends to take a hard stance on voting rights and specifically, conduct regarding elections. For instance, candidates (and their supporters and signs) aren't allowed within a thousand feet of a polling station, and specific measures are taken to ensure that elections aren't tampered with. Based upon that, and the fact that their actions could have been interpreted as threatening, I believe that they should be prosecuted. This is a case that I believe should be decided, by jury, and not as an administrative decision in DOJ.

    Intimidation at polls is wrong and should never be accepted under any pretext. It is wrong and polling stations have to be completely free of it. The Black Panthers are a known racist group.

    However I think something needs to be said about racism in political realms particularly where the Tea Party is concerned. I don’t care about libertarian haughty notions of liberty the 1964 civil rights act should not be amended for the sake of ideological objectives. It creates also a bridge for white supremist to find loop holes in political framework from which they can work. The Tea party should be disbanded and just call themselves what they are.. an illegitimate arm of the republican party. Indeed, anything that supports or gives a leg for white supremacy to stand on ought to be called what it is. The Black Panthers have some serious political compitition.

    Okay there is no intimidation on their part. They're sitting in a booth exercising their free speech. What they did was grossly wrong, but I think it was more illogical than racist. Also please tell me what told you these people were tea partiers? The tea party does not support racism. They can not be held responsible for the ill-conceived notions of a few of their self-proclaimed members. Your accusation that the tea party is a bunch of racists is ludicrous. It's comparable to me calling all blacks racist because a small sect of them (including the Black Panthers) are.

    Now what the hell does this have to do with the black panthers and this poll? Please use your brain before you post.

    Sorry Catz, I can't agree. Not that I can't agree that those guys COULD have behaved intimidatingly, or could have been there in order to do so. My specific point is that, based on what I saw on the video, they DID NOT behave intimidatingly. I saw no evidence of them having signs declaring who the voters should be supporting or indeed who they were supporting. They were not rude or aggressive. The one question is why the guy was holding a stick. But then again, he wasn't threatening anyone with it, not even the guy filming him. There may be an offence if there's an ordinance prohibiting the carrying of such weapons within such-and-such a distance of the polling station. I've no idea what the punishment for that might be, but so be it.

    I get the impression people here want to see the guy prosecuted for being a member of his organisation. If it is a prohibited organisation, so be it too.
