    (Fox News)- In emotional and personal testimony, an ex-Justice official who quit over the handling of a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party accused his former employer of instructing attorneys in the civil rights division to ignore cases that involve black defendants and white victims.
    J. Christian Adams, testifying Tuesday before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, said that “over and over and over again,” the department showed “hostility” toward those cases. He described the Black Panther case as one example of that — he defended the legitimacy of the suit and said his “blood boiled” when he heard a Justice official claim the case wasn’t solid.
    “It is false,” Adams said of the claim.
    “We abetted wrongdoing and abandoned law-abiding citizens,” he later testified.
    The department abandoned the New Black Panther case last year. It stemmed from an incident on Election Day in 2008 in Philadelphia, where members of the party were videotaped in front of a polling place, dressed in military-style uniforms and allegedly hurling racial slurs while one brandished a night stick.

    Does anyone doubt that the actions of this Hussein regime reflect that of a dictator?

    PajamasMedia has been following this story quite closely, including posting columns written by J. Christian Adams, the attorney who recently resigned in protest:

    Pajamas Media PJM Exclusive: Unequal Law Enforcement Reigns at Obama’s DOJ (UPDATED: Adams Discusses this Article on Fox News)

    Pajamas Media J. Christian Adams: DOJ Opponents of Race-Neutral Law Should Explain Themselves


    And other former DOJ attorneys are starting to speak out:

    Pajamas Media BREAKING: Former DOJ Officials Stepping Forward to Support J. Christian Adams (Updated)


    This is not a story that the MSM will willingly follow - so the best place to look is on the internets.
