    Imagine if Ku Klux Klan members had stood menacingly in military uniforms, with nightsticks, in front of a polling place. Add to it that they had hurled racial threats and insults at voters who tried to enter.

    Now suppose that the government, backed by a nationally televised video of the event, had won a court case against the Klansmen except for the perfunctory filing of a single, simple document - but that an incoming Republican administration had moved to voluntarily dismiss the already-won case.

    Surely that would have been front-page news, with a number of firings at the Justice Department.

    Based strictly on the article, yes, I'd say further explanation is indeed required. I do know that the "new" Black Panthers (although much smaller in number) are more violent and profess ALL "black power" whereas the originals were more for black equality (and they've disbanded). I too think these dangerous organizations need to be removed from the streets before they gain any momentum, and at the least heavy fines imposed. Of course they won't be paid, but at least the law won't have been circumvented.

    the double standard from the left on race issues serves only to harm this country and inflame racial tensions. i'm amazed they have gotten away with it this long.

    This undermines true liberal views.

    If they violated the law, they should be prosecuted. We shouldn't be like those who would commute Scooter Libby for outing a covert CIA Agent.

    If it's wrong it's wrong. Get over the holier than thou shit.:eusa_liar:

    Funny it isn't more publisized since the media is owned by right wing corporations.

    Did Scooter Libby threaten voters with a nightstick?
