Eric Holder Vs. Black Panthers
Investors.com ^ | May 19, 2010 | Investors Business Daily staff

Posted on 05/19/2010 5:21:52 PM PDT by Kaslin

Civil Rights: The Justice Department explains that it dropped a Black Panther voter-intimidation case because of lack of evidence. Pay no attention to the thugs outside the polling place. Yet another reason Eric Holder must go.

On Election Day 2008, New Black Panther Party members King Samir Shabazz, Malik Zulu Sha-bazz and Jerry Jackson were charged in a civil complaint with civil violations by "allegedly" violating the Voting Rights Act through intimidation, threats and coercion as they stood outside a Philadelphia polling place.

It was what Bartle Bull, a former civil rights lawyer and publisher of the left-wing Village Voice, called "the most blatant form of voter intimidation I've ever seen" — Black Panthers dressed in paramilitary garb, one brandishing a nightstick and saying things like, "You are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker!"

In January 2009, the Department of Justice filed a lawsuit charging violations of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. When none of the defendants filed a response or showed up at a subsequent hearing, we'd have thought DOJ would have won its suit by default.

Instead, in May 2009, it let two of the three walk and issued a weak injunction against Shabazz forbidding him from showing up at another Philadelphia polling place with another nightstick and intimidating other voters for the next three years, an action that was already illegal. He is presumably free to do the same thing in, say, New Jersey in 2012.

“EXCLUSIVE: Career lawyers overruled on voting case
Black Panthers had wielded weapons, blocked polls”
By Jerry Seper

SNIPPET: “Justice Department political appointees overruled career lawyers and ended a civil complaint accusing three members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense of wielding a nightstick and intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling place last Election Day, according to documents and interviews.

The incident - which gained national attention when it was captured on videotape and distributed on YouTube - had prompted the government to sue the men, saying they violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act by scaring would-be voters with the weapon, racial slurs and military-style uniforms.

Career lawyers pursued the case for months, including obtaining an affidavit from a prominent 1960s civil rights activist who witnessed the confrontation and described it as “the most blatant form of voter intimidation” that he had seen, even during the voting rights crisis in Mississippi a half-century ago.”

“Only in Philly: Black Panther on the Ballot!”
May 18, 2010 by EJ

SNIPPET: “Jerry Jackson, notorious member of the New Black Panther Party, who was seen in the video below intimidating and threatening voters in 2008, is running for re-election as a member of the Democratic Executive Committee in Philadelphia.

Below is the “sample ballot” for the 14th Ward, 4th Division. A sample ballot is posted outside of each polling location. You can see Jackson is listed first in a field of three. The top two vote getters will be elected to a four year term as a member of the Democratic Executive Committee. In 2008, Jackson was issued a certificate by the Democratic Party to be inside of the polling place where he was seen intimidating voters.”

Updated May 29, 2009
“Charges Against ‘New Black Panthers’ Dropped by Obama Justice Dept.
FOXNews.com”

SNIPPET: “A poll watcher who provided an affidavit to prosecutors in the case noted that 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.”

He also said they tried to “interfere with the work of other poll observers ... whom the uniformed men apparently believed did not share their preferences politically,” noting that one of the panthers turned toward the white poll observers and said “you are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker.””

And you just caught onto this???

Tell you what...Since you are a liberal plant/troll within this sight and apparently do not know anyone personally on this website...

You should have figured out that that particular tag of my personality comes from people I know, and that know my true identity and personality...

You do not, therefore you again present yourself as a pursuant fool, of someone you do not know, and will never truely understand...

The fact that you jumped threads and picked up on something I said quite a while back in time, proves that you are a fool...

By all means keep up the good work, fool...

See you on the next one...newbie...

If I was a member of a hostile minority group, I might be a little more circumspect. They're betting their future safety on the good nature of folks with European ancestry. I submit the 20th century for consideration.

Ok, fool...No problem...I was only trying to keep the “demensional” nature of my responses down your level...

Your promises are empty, illustrated by the fact of your “reasoning” in that FReepmail you sent me...I’m just amazed that you have discovered that feature in this website...Good for you, yer making progress...

Seek life, and entertainment elsewhere...The mere fact that you publically claim to be bored waiting for my responses proves a psychosis that your personal internet usage seems to be the only thing in your life worth living...I recommend you seek professional help, or at least up the meds that you are already on...

Just don’t drink any alcohol...That would just make things better...
