Skip to comments.Charges Against Black Panthers Dropped by Obama....They are just cats right?

Facefwd.com <> The charges stemmed from an incident at a Philadelphia polling place on Election Day when three members of the party were accused of trying to threaten voters and block poll and campaign workers by the threat of force - one even brandishing what prosecutors call a deadly weapon.
The three black panthers, Minister King Samir Shabazz, Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry Jackson were charged in a civil complaint in the last days of the Bush administration with violating the voter rights act by using coercion, threats and intimidation. Shabazz allegedly held a nightstick or baton that prosecutors said he pointed at people and menacingly taped it. Prosecutors also say he "supports racially motivated violence against non-blacks and Jews."
The complaint says they hurled racial slurs at both blacks and whites.
A poll watcher who provided an affidavit to prosecutors in the case noted Democrat Bartle Bull, who worked as a civil rights lawyer in the south in the 1960's and is a former campaign manager for Robert Kennedy, said it was the most blatant form of voter intimidation he had ever seen.
In his affidavit, obtained by FOX News, Bull wrote "I watched the two uniformed men confront voters and attempt to intimidate voters. They were positioned in a location that forced every voter to pass in close proximity to them. The weapon was openly displayed and brandished in plain sight of voters."

The usual middle class response is to sue their pants off.
“...Minister King Samir Shabazz, Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry Jackson...”
‘Jerry Jackson’ needs a fancier name if anyone is EVER going to take him seriously as a thug...
Score another victory for black racist!
I saw these punks from a homemade video on YouTube. A former Iraq war vet confronted them, then got cops involved. He was totally unintimidated, but there were grannies and weanies who most certainly were turned away. Gangstas punks put it to da man.
Then next election there should’nt be any problem if the voters bring clubs and sticks to the voting poll...you know...just for a little protection.
As long as he promissed not to do it again.
Just imagine how the press and the Obama adiministration would have reacted had these “uniformed” men been white...We’d have heard no end about the KKK and white oppression of black voters and the Bush campaigns effort to opress the minorities.
Expect these three to have high positions in Obama’s “civilian corps”.
This stuff used to be on Scrappleface and the Onion.
My brother was a security contractor in Iraq, he worked the last Iraqi elections. An American woman was there as an overseer, and she commented to him that the Iraqi elections were smooth sailing compared to our elections.
Shouldn’t this be in Breaking News?
Dude in the cop outfit looked like one of the Village People. If they had also had a constuction worker, a cowboy and an indian they could have entertained voters by singing “YMCA”.
An injunction against future activity and charges dropped. If they were KKK, they’d have been soaked in gas and burned alive with a tire around their neck. More racism from Zero.
I agree. You can expect ACORN fraud, corruption, intimidation, and violence in coming elections.
"Heres the vid of billy club-wielding 'security' guards at the 1221 Fairmount Ave. polling place in Philly from Election Journal. Just as I suspected, these guys look like NBPP [New Black Panther Party] from the emblem on one of the 'guards' jackets.
Maybe this is what Barack Obama was talking about when he proposed a Civilian Security Force."

Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We are happy today to be standing side by side with the Nation of Islam. We believe, like the Nation of Islam and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad believe, in a nation of our own. We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology. We dont worry about the criticism. We love all of those who labored in the Panther Party from the 60s. Many are with us today."

From the article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROES
"On May 1st, May Day , the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo.
Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.
The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."
To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

This should be in breaking news.
This is what we are up against. Thugs and tyrants who have absolutely no respect for the American way of life and Constitution. Obama should have to answer for this. Why were these cases dropped?!?
