Voter Intimidation a the Polls 2008

Intimidation for any reason should not be allowed at the polling locations. It doesn't matter if these men were there to stop Obama supporters or McCain supporters... this isn't a police state and citizens don't get to stand in front of doors with night sticks or any other weapons in the guise of "securing the premises".

That being said... imagine if someone from a white supremacists group was standing outside a polling station doing this same thing? Seems to many in the real world that the black panthers represent black supremacists.


Concerned Citizen:
"I think you might be a little bit intimidating that you have a stick in your hand... I mean that's a weapon and that's why I'm worried. [...] You have a night stick in your hand."

Man with night stick:
"You have a camera phone."

Concerned Citizen:
"I have a camera phone... which is not a weapon."

Oh, I can see the headlines now...


David Drake's comments on Black Panther Voter Intimidation

PA: Black Panther Intimidation At The Polls


This brings up an important question... with men running around like this who think they can take the law into their own hands, how long before we are under the thumb of a police state? Skipping along into socialism only leads to sliding into the home base of communism. I know it seems a little on the side of paranoia, but lately we've been given cause.

May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
