    Now with that said Im not saying nothing wrong happened in philly just saying the above is not true
    These laws vary from state to state. In our area, it's 1000 feet.

    Here's an article on the subject: How to Campaign Near a Polling Place | eHow.com

    Beyond that, the laws are even more strict in Pennsylvania, which prohibits "passive electioneering."

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.
    A thousand feet? In Georgia, it is 50 yards (150 feet). When I was running for office, I was outside a polling space (more than 50 yards away) with signs and handing out literature and I was asked (very politely I might add) to leave even though I was entirely within my rights.

    In this case, you have militants in military garb with weapons outside a polling place. It is entirely reasonable that white people would feel threatened in such an atmosphere. Just that threat is a violation of federal laws.

    Yes, there IS enough evidence in that video to convict based on federal law. That Obama/Holder is dropping this case is sad and a travesty of justice...

    He also planned to light effigies of Nancy Pelosi and Tom Perriello. He hasn't been arrested or accused of intimidation. I saw no mention of this on news outlets, ESPECIALLY Fox News. But, as soon as they get video of a Black Panther with a billy club, they're all over it. I wonder, where are your priorities, Fox News?

    It seems to me that Conservatives are all about the right to bear arms wherever they please, but as soon as the other side begins to do the same, they cry foul. The Second Amendment applies outside of a place of polling just as much as it applies in Washington D.C., where Tea Partiers marched with their guns.
    Was this done outside a polling place while election day was in process?

    A Black Panther wielding a nightstick is a CLEAR violation of the law and should be prosecuted. I know people not from the US may not understand the sensitive nature of election law in the United States. I will not condemn that, but please understand that US law and regulations are different than those in various European countries.

    again like i said its not enforced if it is a law and the artical says its not defined, i cant recall anybody ever being inside the voting room but outside in the parking lot, up the walk way and in the hall way there are signs, supporters with shirts and signs and they hand you buttons and pamphlets while you walk by and say catch phrases and even ask for "moments of your time" sometimes. They tell you who to vote every year.

    so like i said you statment in general is false BUT i would be interested to know what the laws are in Philly but either way the video at hand provides about zero evidence of intimidation. Again not defending what they did just saying we have to go by the video and theres little there. For coviction there would have to be way more
    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.

    Wearing Black Panther militant garb, threatening a citizen who has a poll watcher certificate, BRAHDISHING A NIGHT STICK!!! That is CLEAR violation of the law. I have gone through poll watching classes when I lived in Georgia and this is absolutely a violation of the law. Poll watchers and voters reported that they felt intimidated. That is clear intimidation...

    actually it is not and you must have watched i different video I saw no one get threatened LMAO
    again Im actually do not want to defend what they did but what you said simply didnt happen on the video

    to be honest on the video I see two people that COULD look intimidating but wouldnt bother me and when actually talked to the guy seemed pretty polite and even had a "non-stereotypical" tone and soft sounding voice LOL and i just see people coming and going like they arent even there

    again if they did other things and there are witnesses etc etc then try to prosecute but if the video is all the defense would have then they got notta

    Amen, and America is not subject to European law. That's why our early ancestors left the oppression of European laws to come to America for freedom.

    Wearing known militant garb and brandishing a nightstick while spouting racist rhetoric IS intiminating to many people and IS a violation of the voting rights act.
