Black panthers intimidating voters philadelphia
And here the administration is challenging that system.
[snip] It leaves us in a terrible situation where the government is deciding what laws to enforce based on its political opportunities in the next election.
a republican poll observer actually called the police, the police were here and we miss them, they came and left. why don’t you tell us — step down off the curb, if you do not mind. CITIZEN: we got a phone call that there was intimidation going on. i went inside and found full- watchers, they said they had been here for an hour — i went inside and found poll-watchers, they said that they had said not to let people outside because black people are going to win no matter what.obviously, you cannot stand around with a weapon menacingly in your hand under any circumstances.LEVENTHAL: that is situation, as far as we know it.Furthermore, the Panthers were handing out a press release from Malik Zulu Shabazz, the national chairman of the NBPP.That same DOJ leadership apparently doesn’t believe the NBPP was engaging in intimidation when it sent thugs uniformed like Mussolini’s blackshirts, one with a billy club, to stand in front of the entrance to a polling place. In the middle of it, King Samir Shabazz, the Panther who swung the billy club on Election Day, got up, moved to the side of the hearing room slightly in front of the witnesses, and photographed the three men seated at the witness table testifying against him.
