    To the fullest extent of the law.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I voted yes, though I'm not really sure of the laws regarding this type of thing. People who are not law enforcement officers should not be allowed to stand at the entrance to polling stations with weapons, imo. If groups want to send observers, I have no problem with that, but they shouldn't be armed and acting as police.

    There are rather strong rules set for voter intimidation and it is something that we cannot allow to happen. These people should have been brought up on charges and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The lesson must be clear, in a democratic Republic such as our own; voter intimidation and the likes cannot be accepted.

    Let me add to this, they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, but should have gotten their asses whipped thouroughly on that particular day.

    Well I voted yes but I think they need more evidence. Did they actually stop anyone from voting? Now I understand intimidation is completely unacceptable, why didn't the people at the poll not call police? Is this fox news trying to sensationalize something that was relatively benign?

    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 donít 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.

    What he said.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    This isn't about Tea Parties or Rand Paul, Gabriel. Stop trying to derail the thread.

    And as a domestic terrorist group, yes.

    Voter intimidation is voter intimidation. This has nothing to do with the Tea Party or the axe you have to grind with them or libertarians. While the Tea Party was taken over by the Republicans and is now a propaganda mouthpiece, it doesn't mean they have to disband. Neither does it mean that the Black Panthers would have to disband in this case either. We have freedom of association in this country, so they are free to do as they like. The Tea Party has not engaged in this type of voter intimidation. While there would have to be an investigation to collect data, it doesn't stop the fact that there was travesty in the law when the Black Panthers were not brought up on charges and prosecuted for voter intimidation. Now if you want to make a "I think libertarians are stupid" or "The Tea Party is a racist ****hole" thread, you are more than free to do so. But neither of those two things have anything to do in the slightest with the case against the Black Panthers and their acts of voter intimidation at the election.
