Okay, no cruelty to animals charges????......
Eric Holder’s people cannot commit hate crimes, so these must not be Eric Holder’s people.
It’s a good thing nobody put a flaming bag of poop on the porch.
This should be handled by “30 days in he county jug”.
10 years and $100,000?!?! That is gross beyond belief! Anyone who entertains such a notion should get prosecuted for violating people’s civil rights!
The GOP poisoning the political climate is coming home to roost.
Some people serve less time for murder!
... The defendants face a 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine ...
For a raccoon on the porch? How much jail time did Clinton get for perjury?
I was missing a raccoon. So that’s where he went.
Heck, the way things are these days, you don’t want to get convicted of anything involving conspiracy.
Conspiracy to cook a pizza?
Guilty! Life w/o parole!
Duh, since the bar of punishment has been set this high, maybe US Rep Issa should tack on this same punishment to AG Eric Holder’s Contempt of Congress penalty tomorrow?
“Watch this y’all...”
[Watch this yall...]
Famous last words.
You know you’re a redneck when you have more than three acquaintances named “Tater.”
Illegal, unlicensed, uninsured drivers come to mind.
I guess being deprived of life isn't as important as being deprived of "your civil rights," even if in both cases the victims are "Holder's people."
Why did you find it necessary to change conspiracy to coonspiracy?
Yeah....a dead racoon on his porch should do it.
That’ll learn’em. Next time they’ll wear gloves.
You signed up in March just to wait for this story, right?
NO! I was talking about the 10 years in jail and the big fine! That is what Issa should add to the Contempt of Congress charge.
10 years for a hazing prank?
Never time deny everything or at least don’t admit to anything. They probably didn’t think it was a big deal and told all. 10 years and $100k later...looks like it is a big deal.
A few blacks are victims of racial intimidation, and it is a federal case with draconian sentences given to the offenders.
Yet millions of whites have fled their homes and neighborhoods due to black racially motivated crime and intimidation. It is called white flight. And federal charges are never filed against any of the black thugs who cause these whites to flee their homes..
Also,the murder of Emmet Till in Mississippi in 1955 by racist whites is taught as a major racist crime in US history in high schools and colleges. Yet whites have been murdered under similar circumstances by racist blacks by the dozens in recent times, and their death are almost completely forgotten.
Three White “Emmet Tills” forgotten by history:

None of these crimes were ever even investigated as federal hate crimes.Nor ever prosecuted as such.
But then Eric Holder has specifically stated that only “protected groups” with a “historical basis” are protected by Federal Hate Crime Laws. And that excludes white Americans who happen to be most of the victims of of racially motivated violent crime. Go figure.
Besides he needs all his resources to investigate whether George Zimmerman ever said the N word in his lifetime to railroad him on federal charges when he walks on the bogus state charges.
wait a second... you can go to prison for depriving someone of their rights? i thought that was only the govt
so... if i want to hold up a sign in a public area as an expression of speech... and someone tries to stop me... does that person now go to jail??
1. LOL at COONspiracy. DoJ has a sense of humor after all.
2. They went all the way to Africa to throw a dead raccoon on someone's porch?
3. How did they get the dead raccoon past the TSA?
