    Sanford Police And FBI ‘Investigating’ New Black Panther ‘Dead Or Alive’ Flyers | Mediaite

    It would be irresponsible for either the Obama White House or the FBI itself to comment on an ongoing investigation until this investigation has developed some findings and made a determination if a warrant/warrants will be issued and arrest(s) made in the threats case.

    That's how law enforcement works, both at the local and federal level. Commenting on an ongoing investigation can compromise sources and/or the investigation itself, and is an entirely fruitless activity.

    Just because you aren't seeing coverage of the activities by Tampa and other local FBI offices doesn't mean that they aren't occurring, in tandem with the USAO for the Middle District of Florida. Any kind of high profile case like this, particularly involving threat and/or the conspiracy to commit a criminal act, is likely to be investigated and filed at the federal level. In this instance, it looks like a possible RICO case, which involves a lot of federal legwork and documentation/investigation at multiple levels. The suspects in this case also reside in multiple localities around the U.S., so it isn't a purely local investigation.

    Hope that helps.

    Why would Nzinga be taken into custody, without conservative media outlets covering it?

    I don't know...do you?

    Nzinga is a convicted felon. Sometimes, it is easier to get a felon off the street via a probation violation so that you can pursue investigating other crimes that the individual is suspected of committing. That way you remove the threat to the community immediately, while still pursuing any leads that turn up.

    What's happening behind the scenes? I suspect there is a lot of communication occurring between local, state and federal agencies in the communities where these individuals reside. These agencies include local law enforcement intelligence units (a unit inside a PD or Sheriff's Office that collects intelligence on an ongoing basis on individuals suspected of posing a threat to the community and/or criminal involvement), state investigations/corrections/adult probation & parole, and the feds (FBI for sure, and possibly ATF).

    FWIW, Bobby O'Neill, the USAO in the middle district of Florida, is in no way a liberal...he's a hardline law & order prosecutor. I have a lot of respect for him as a human being and as a professional. He's a very competent guy, we're lucky to have him in Florida, and I have no doubt that he will handle this matter effectively. He's no Obama stoolie.

    But catz...

    I already thanked (and tried to rep) your OP.

    And now you seem hell bent on convincing me I should be worried about the NBPP. :lol:

    Should the NBPP be investigated and prosecuted? Absolutely, the leadership and most participants are thugs.

    I don't know how this will be charged, but I suspect terroristic threats at the low end, and at the top end, RICO, depending on how far the conspiracy to actually commit a crime goes within the organization. As a result of making this threat, their status as an organization (administratively) will probably also be compromised.

    Should Americans be cowering in their homes because of the terrifying NBPP? Absolutely not. As a whole, racist groups (of any hue) aren't very well organized, they're typically run by felons and/or criminals (who aren't very good at their criminal activities or they wouldn't have been arrested/convicted), they're typically more about soundbytes than they are direct action, and they don't have very much support from the communities that they claim to represent.

    I know, nuanced positions like this are so hard to fit into a partisan soundbyte...:D

    I take it you have some vague evidence to suggest that 'Americans' are 'cowering in their homes'... or are you just making shit up again?

    The NBPP is NOT the issue. There are always stupid groups and people. The issue, and the reason the NBPP is a concern is because of Eric Holder, they appear to be above the law.

    So, let me get this straight... a few dumbass remarks on a message board equates to 'Americans cowering in their homes'.... no wonder you and I can't get along.... you're a fucking idiot. I do find stupid very hard to tolerate.

    Yeah, I can see why you'd want to redirect away from this post. It shows exactly how much of a partisan hack you really are. Before commenting on the inaction of DOJ, it behooves an objective comenter to do a little homework outside of Hannity website.

    You and your buddy Daveman look like imbeciles at this point.

    Here's a tip, Cali-moron: Just because you don't know about it doesn't mean it isn't occurring.

    Sorry, I disagree.... when you have a group of people, no matter how few, no matter how ridiculous... actually offering a reward for the capture or death of any other American - regardless of that person's guilt or innocence, race, color or creed... that is a big fucking deal. So, yea, they are the 'issue'. Offering money to commit murder is illegal.
