    yeah so, testimony of feelings? really?
    sorry testimony of feelings and that video are not enough

    again like i said im not condoning just using reality and law

    ill go to the police station tomorrow and testify that i feel harassed by you should they just lock you up or should there be a thing called due process and should they look for evidence that proves WITHOUT doubt to move forward, that is my point

    it can easily be argued that theres not enough there to convict LMAO like I said the law is the same for me you and them, it may suck sometimes but you cant convict on assumptions, this isnt rocket science

    your welcome and thats the difference, my emotions arent wired in with my logic, they are separate as they should be, I may not like what they did, i may not like that one guy and think he is a racist and would love to punch him in the face but i could never convict him based on that. All that has to be kept separate and when i watch the video I see nothing that shows me to convict, i wish i did but i do not cause theres nothing there.

    you have a nice day also

    This video says it all:

    Did you watch this specific video? In this video nothing like that occurred. There is another circumstance involving the BPP that is quite a bit more despicable, however, and I think that you're mixing it up with that.

    Those who said no.....would you be okay during the election of 2012 if a Tea Partier was standing outside the door of your polling place with a rifle?

    My thoughts EGZAKLY.

    Currently, there are federal laws that make voter intimidation illegal, but their lenient penalties have spurred lawmakers to introduce legislation with more teeth. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 prohibit persons from intimidating or attempting to intimidate, threaten or coerce another person for the purpose of interfering with their right to vote freely in federal elections. However, the maximum penalty for conviction on a charge of voter intimidation under federal guidelines is a fine and/or no more than one year in prison, which has hardly deterred voter intimidation schemes in the past.

    If that isn't voter intimidation, I don't know what is. Another poster is correct. This should have been handled at the time. I don't know who was taping it. Maybe they should've turned the tape off and dialed 911.

    Project Vote.Org recommends states enact much more stringent penalties for voter intimidation. It happened on BOTH sides during the 2008 election and shouldn't be allowed.

    I presume you voted in the minority?

    They probably will be. Look, I've already said that if the KKK turned up and didn't intimidate anyone I wouldn't like it but couldn't object. Funny how so many people were perfectly prepared for the Westboro nuts to picket and shout abuse at military funerals, because it's their 'right' to do so, but want the guys in the video, who were intimidating no one that I could see, to be arrested.

    well you would presume wrong, I voted yes because Im fine with looking into it and im fine with TRYING to prosecute which only means to begin legal proceedings. My point is unless theres more evidence its going to be a very fast beginning and ending because theres not enough evidence of anything. To prosecute and convict are different things and with this video alone there would definitely be no conviction
