EDITORIAL: Holder’s Black Panther blind spot
Washington Times ^ | April 10, 2012 | Editorial

Posted on 04/10/2012 5:35:10 PM PDT by jazusamo

Justice Department ignores black-on-white crime

What is it about the Justice Department and the Black Panthers? On March 24, Mikhail Muhammad, leader of the New Black Panther Party, offered a $10,000 bounty for the “capture” of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed Trayvon Martin. The Panthers distributed wanted posters, calling him a “child killer” and offering the bounty “dead or alive.” Muhammad warned that Mr. Zimmerman “should be fearful for his life.”

These acts were almost certainly criminal. Florida Code 787.01 makes it a felony to threaten someone or abduct them with the intent to terrorize. Florida Code 777.04 further criminalizes solicitation which “commands, encourages, hires or requests another person” to engage in criminal activity such as kidnapping. Solicitation to kidnap is also a federal crime, and the fact that this was unambiguously racially-based brings it within the purview of federal hate-crime laws.

There is an important moral dimension at play as well. This scandal offers an opportunity for the Obama administration to show it can act impartially and calm racial tensions. So far, the White House has failed to lead on the issue. President Obama’s high-profile public statement - “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” - was bizarre and seemed to show undue bias. Taking swift action against those who seek to incite racial violence would demonstrate that the federal government enforces the law without prejudice.

There's been much said about this but it bears repeating, the New Black Panthers are Holder's people.

A BTT. Holder’s silence in the affair after the ‘09 Black Panther debacle is damning. Every day he allows it to continue, he sends the message that racial intimidation is tolerated. And that is precisely the message he intends to send.

The NLPC Editorial Board is incorrect when they claim Obama isn’t leading. He is indeed leading.

I was stuck by how concise, technically correct, and determined the author is.

However, the elephant is Holder. Speaking to him like a rational person will do no good.

Holder, Obama, Hoodies, Muslim Brotherhood, Farrakahn, Write, they are all the same people with the same agenda.

They are all the same. Talking to them will accomplish nothing. They are Holder's peeps man. Dees is my peoples. He said so himself.

They are built on a foundation of Hate and Destruction. That is what they are all about. Speaking to them logically, is a waste of time.

The statutes cited are Florida statutes.

Why does the Florida DOJ (or whatever they call it) not pursue this issue?

jaz, it is beyond my comprehension how this bounty is allowed to stand. The NBPs are offering money for his dead (or alive) body. Isn’t this solicitation of murder for hire?

If Florida laws have been broken, why hasn’t FL law enforcement issued arrest warrants?

Once again, if Holder will not enforce the laws, the states can & should.

I messed up, this editorial is from The Washington Times, not the NLPC. You are correct though, Zer0 is leading.

Yes, FL should go after them on state statutes and the feds should go after them on their’s.

I heard on CNN that Zimmerman’s attorneys have lost contact with him. Does this mean he (Zimmerman) might be in harms way?????

I read some articles that said the Black Panthers pulled the wanted posters after a few days but they should still be nailed. There’s also been video’s of NBPP members calling for war with whites and killing for justice.

Neither Holder or the state of FL have gone after them that I’ve seen and they should.

I don’t know. I read that his attorneys withdrew from his case because they haven’t heard from him.

Ben Crump, an attorney for Martin’s family, said they are worried that Zimmerman might flee if he is charged.

“We’re just concerned that nobody knows where he is at. Nobody knows how to get to him,” Crump said.

The longer this lawlessness is allowed to stand, the more emboldened they will become.

The same reason Mississippi or Alabama didn’t go after the Citizen’s Councils or Klan in the 1950’s, Florida is scared of what would happen. It’s long past time something should have been done. The die is cast.

If only some whites would put a bounty on the leader’s head of the Black Pampers.

It would be a “teachable moment” for the progressives, the media and everyone else.

Federalism 101 - it is not for the Federal DOJ to enforce State laws.

Dollars to donuts Holders people made the same promises to Santorum.

Listen to Rev Wright lately? Or Farrakhan, Sharpton, Jesse jackson?

Why in the world would Santorum throw in the towel now? Maybe he did not want to be Breitbart-ed. Lotta Vince Fostering going around all of a sudden.

You would be well-advised to more-closely reread the text you cited.

I wish. I don't know why any white group should even be afraid to do so, only two things could happen-either no one would have the nerve to charge them with anything after letting the nbp get away with it, or if they were charged, after letting the nbp get away with it, the roar of indignation from most whites would be deafening. I would hope such an open display of partiality in enforcing the law towards blacks would rile up enough whites.

Somebody ought to call their bluff. Put a bounty on ALL the Black Panthers with the caveat that it goes into effect if ANYTHING happens to George Zimmerman as a result of action by civilians. Same deal: “dead or alive”. Watch Holder move his a*s then.

Uh, Reading Comprehension 101 - my question referred to STATE laws & STATE law enforcement. Federalism & the DOJ have nothing to do with my question.

If Florida laws have been broken then Florida law enforcement may issue arrest warrants w/o consulting Holder, the DOJ, or anybody else. Again, why haven't they (Florida Law Enforcement) issued arrest warrants?

I guarantee you that if the Black Panthers start passing out “Wanted: Dead or Alive” posters in Maricopa Co, AZ, Sheriff Joe Arpaio will immediately arrest & jail them.
