CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a man attending a Toby Keith concert in New Jersey's most impoverished city climbed a fence into a housing complex, waved a Confederate flag and shouted racial slurs at residents.
33-year-old Darren Walp of Ridley Park, Pa., was arrested in Camden Saturday. He's charged with bias intimidation, harassment and criminal trespassing and is in the Camden County Jail with bail of $5,000.

The law is being enforced in Camden, NJ! Some of it at lest.

He went into a housing project in Camden waiving a Confederate flag?
Talk about stupid. It’s surprising he came out alive.
Is there no freedom of speech anymore? Seriously the dude was an idiot and maybe charge him with disorderly conduct but a
bias crime for waving a flag and calling people ni**ers?
It would be different if he was a cop on duty or something. He has no power over anyone in that housing project and did he threaten them with weapons? And do you think the illegal shit going on in that housing project should be more of a concern to the state of NJ, this includes murders of kids by gang bangers?
how many people think he was drunk out of his mind?
So it's not if anyone actually felt intimidated from/by/with "bias", the decision is at the sole discretion of the state. So what is someone to do if they claim to feel "bias intimidation" from a homo pride parade?
Liberals: making laws for others to knuckle under to while they find ways around the very rules they make.
This morning, as I was walking my dog, I encountered a neighbor washing his car.
He was a huge Black Man, with dreadlocks down to his waist.
He was wearing a Leonard Skynnard T-Shirt complete with the Stars and bars.
I shot the breeze with him for a while, talking about some nasty trees that were dropping sap upon our cars, and discussing that they be removed by the Property Management.
I Never mentioned the shirt, but evidently, some white folks are more intimidated by the Confederate Flag than Black folks.
I'd suggest the guy's lawyer fight turning this over to a Fed prosecution if I had any hope a Fed judge would agree that it is a state issue, but that's highly unlikely. All those at the Fed level are deeply in live with their power over us little people.
What he did is illegal! Only burning the US flag and bashing Christians is legal!
****He’s charged with bias intimidation,****
I’d call him being a jerk. If some of the residents had taken him down and beat the coon dog s#!t out of him, who can complain since he initiated the problem.
Agreed that the "bias crime" nonsense is just that. But, freedom of speech? He was on private property. Racially-motivated or not, if someone climbs a fence onto private property and starts screaming epithets and/or threats at the residents, it's going to be something more thad disorderly conduct.
Sounds fishy to me. I’ve been to more country concerts than I can count. Over the past 40 years I’ve seen some of the “rowdiest” acts in country. I’ve seen lots of drunks and I’ve seen some smoke pot smokers at Willie shows, but not once have I ever heard people shouting the “N” word. Then again, I am from the South where, contrary to popular notions, blacks and whites are accustomed to one another and generally get along. I can’t say what goes on in New Jersey.
Guess he won’t be getting a job that the food network any time soon. Oh, and like Paula Dean, Toby Keith is a big fat southern fried lib too.
In New America you have Freedom of Speech, unless it offends someone, who can then have you arrested.
Drunk but for the Stars n’ Bars.
Memorize it, repeat it until you know it down pat. You'll be soon using it without understanding the words, like you use "affirmative action", "choice", "gay", etc.
Speaking of intimidation my great grandfather fought in the civil war, spent time in Richmond’s notorious Libby prison, and now rests in Evergreen Cemetery in Camden, NJ. I was told by the county historical society that a visit to see his grave would put my life in danger. The irony.
Is that 'i' in 'bias' a short or long vowel ?
“Bias intimidation”-would that be anything like the Black Panthers wielding billyclubs in front of a polling place? Or a Black Panther on national media calling on blacks to kill white babies?
‘Rebel Yell’ hootch and dumb. It killed Robert Byrd (D-WVa).
Amazing that people are sitting here defending this idiot.
The NBPP immediately sprang to my mind, too, when I read this. Some animals are more equal than others in the Zero and Holder’s zoo we call amerika.
“In New America you have Freedom of Speech, unless it offends someone you climb a fence to get on someone else’s property and start screaming at them, who can then have you arrested.”
If that is the case you arrest him for trespassing, harassment, drunk in public, etc not “bias intimidation” which sounds like something only a certain group would ever be arrested for.
Agreed, the “bias intimidation” charge is nonsense.
Bias intimidation? Sounds kinda like double-secret probation....
They should have just let the moron have his fun. He would have won his Darwin Award sooner or later....
