Justice Provides Solution To Water Boarding Issue

The issue of water boarding has been a hot topic over the past few months. Nancy Pelosi was caught lying about her knowledge of the practice and there have been debates as to whether it constitutes torture. Some people say it is not and others say it is. Some people are volunteering to have it done and saying it was torture while some members of the military say they have been water boarded several times and it was “no big deal.” Until Congress codifies the issue and specifically states water boarding is torture then the debate will continue.

However, the Justice Department has provided a way out of the issue without putting Pelosi in jail or prosecuting anyone involved in the issue. Just tell them not to do it again. Yes, telling them not to do it again is satisfactory adjudication for the Justice Department.

Last November three thugs from the Black Panther Party were involved in voter intimidation and they violated the voter rights act. The actions of the baton wielding thugs were captured on film and left no doubt that they were involved in intimidating voters in Philadelphia. The career lawyers at Justice were prepared to bring sanctions against the three men but the political appointees of Obama have put a halt to that.

Justice Department political appointees overruled career lawyers and ended a civil complaint accusing three members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense of wielding a nightstick and intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling place last Election Day, according to documents and interviews.

A Justice Department spokesman on Thursday confirmed that the agency had dropped the case, dismissing two of the men from the lawsuit with no penalty and winning an order against the third man that simply prohibits him from bringing a weapon to a polling place in future elections.

The department was “successful in obtaining an injunction that prohibits the defendant who brandished a weapon outside a Philadelphia polling place from doing so again,” spokesman Alejandro Miyar said. “Claims were dismissed against the other defendants based on a careful assessment of the facts and the law.”

“In my opinion, the men created an intimidating presence at the entrance to a poll,” he declared. “In all my experience in politics, in civil rights litigation and in my efforts in the 1960s to secure the right to vote in Mississippi … I have never encountered or heard of another instance in the United States where armed and uniformed men blocked the entrance to a polling location.”

Mr. Bull said the “clear purpose” of what the Panthers were doing was to “intimidate voters with whom they did not agree.” He also said he overheard one of the men tell a white poll watcher: “You are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker.”

He called their conduct an “outrageous affront to American democracy and the rights of voters to participate in an election without fear.” He said it was a “racially motivated effort to limit both poll watchers aiding voters, as well as voters with whom the men did not agree.” Washington Times

This is the kind of justice that is given in the Obama America when it involves minorities who support him but are breaking the law. Is there any doubt what would have happened if the skinheads had been intimidating blacks at polling places? The political appointees would not be telling them not to do it again.

I guess we have a precedent now. A minority thug robs a bank, tell him not to do it again. A minority thug deals drugs, tell him not to do it again.

I would not have let these punks bother me. They like to talk big and act bad but having a baton shoved where the sun does not shine tends to make one less violent.

Funny thing is, I have never seen this kind of intimidation in polling places that are outside of the major cities that liberals run. My polling place was peaceful and people respected each other even though we were voting for different people.

Proper upbringing, it makes a difference.

As for the Black Panthers, just another Democrat organization of racist thugs who are not worth the bullet they so rightfully deserve.

    Gee- I had thought that you were not supposed to bring a weapon to a polling place under threat of prosecution, much less using one. When I vote, I leave my weapon in the car.
    Do you mean to say that liberals don’t follow the law? Horrors!
    As if the Black Panthers could read anyway- probably composed of dropouts from elementary school.
    Their mamma sure taught them no manners.
