The Black Panthers are a proud civic organization, and those guys had to be acting on their own.
It doesn't matter if they were acting on their own or as part of the Black Panthers - they should have been prosecuted! What kind of message is this sending to America, that its ok to intimidate voters? I don't care what color you are or who you are, YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO INTIMIDATE VOTERS! Its a slap in the face that this was dropped. Have you viewed the video Jr? Tell me you would feel comfortable going to vote with that type of "patrol"? And don't accuse me of being racist, it has nothing to do with their color and everything to do with their demeanor and oh yeah, the nightsticks!!
