Atlas readers remember the violation of voters rights when menacing and threatening Black Panthers trolled polling places with weapons on election day. Apparently, Obama, gangsta–in-chief, refused to prosecute the Black Panthers with their night sticks and billy clubs. How very …….third world.
It is good to know that not everyone at the Department of Justice is corrupt and lawless like our President. Hope, baby. Change. (hat tip Mary J0)
DOJ Voting Rights attorney resigns over Black Panthers stonewalling Washington Examiner
A trial attorney with the Department of Justice’s Voting Rights Section has
resigned, citing concerns about the government’s refusal to prosecute a case
involving voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party. A letter of
resignation obtained by The Washington Examiner from a former Justice Department
employee makes clear DOJ has refused to allow attorneys in the Voting Rights
Section to testify before the congressionally-chartered bipartisan U.S.
Commission on Civil Rights, despite subpoenas that could result in their being
held in contempt.
In his letter of resignation, J. Christian Adams said:
On the other hand, the events surrounding the dismissal of United States
v. New Black Panther Party, et al., after the trial team sought and
obtained an entry of default, has subjected me, Mr. Christopher Coates, and
potentially at some point, all members of the team, to a subpoena from the
United States Commission on Civil Rights. The subpoena is based on an explicit
federal statute and seeks answers about why the case was dismissed.
I have incurred significant personal expense in retaining a number of
separate attorneys and firms regarding this subpoena in order to protect my
interests and advise me about my personal legal obligation to comply with the
subpoena. Over the last few months, one of my attorneys has had multiple
communications with Federal Programs regarding the subpoena. My attorney
suggested to them that the Department should file a motion in district court to
quash the subpoena and thereby resolve conclusively any question about my
obligation to comply.
Months ago, my attorney advised the Department that a motion to quash would
be welcome, and that I would assert no objection to the motion. Further, my
attorney has explicitly sought to ascertain whether Executive Privilege has been
invoked regarding the decisions of individuals not in the Voting Section to
order the dismissal of the case. If Executive Privilege has been asserted, or
will be, obviously I would not comply with the subpoena. These options would
provide some conclusive legal certainly about the extent of my obligation to
comply with a subpoena issued pursuant to a federal statute. Instead, we
have been ordered not to comply with the subpoena, citing a federal regulation
Adams also cites his knowledge of the criminal character and “violent
tendencies of” members of the New Black Panther Party, saying:
As you also know, the defendants in the New Black Panther lawsuit have become
increasingly belligerent in their rhetoric toward the attorneys who brought the
case. (See eg., April 23, 2010 statement
of Malik Zulu Shabazz,http://www.newblackpanther.com/usccrphony case
statement.pdf, describing the “phony case” brought by “the modern day racist
lynch mob seeking to hang what [we] think .are [our] modern slaves.”) Their
grievances toward us generally echo the assertions that the facts and law did
not support the lawsuit against them, ab initio. Knowing intimately the criminal
character and violent tendencies of the members of New Black Panther Party, it
is my profound hope that these assertions are
Back on November 4, 2008, I reported here:
Two black panthers were blocking the doorway at a polling place in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Rick Levanthal of Fox News is reporting
One of the panthers said "the black man was going to win the White
House no matter what."
Brandishing a night stick, and swinging it menacingly, the police
were called – one of the black panthers and his night stick were moved.
Do you think little old white ladies would want to walk past the
black panther with a night stick.
