Black Panther Voter Intimidation Case. PART 1 On November 4, 2008 in Philadelphia, PA, 2 Black Panthers, one armed with a baton were harassing white voters who attempted to go into the polling station. The Panthers stationed themselves in front of the doors and shouted racial slurs at the white voters and were physically intimidating. The threat of violence was implied. J. Christian Adams was an attorney working on the case and received a Default Judgement when the defendants did not show up to court or file any papers. They "blew it off." On May 15th, he was ordered to dismiss the case against Jerry Jackson, the tall Panther. Incidentally, Mr. Jackson is also a Democratic Elected official from Philadelphia. The dismissal orders came from Steve Rosenbaum & Loretta King, both political appointees working in the Obama Administration, citing "the facts in the law don't support going forward with the case." This, despite the fact there were witnesses as well as plaintiffs who testified. The other defendant, wielding the baton got a "temporary injunction stopping him from appearing at the polls with a weapon, but only for a few years," essentially a "timid restraint." J. Christian Adams said "there is pervasive hostility within the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department" regarding victims of racial discrimination, when the victims are white. Because of this failure of the Obama Administration to fulfill it's candidacy promise of transparency and openness, and the flagrant disregard for the Law, Mr. Adams resigned his position in protest.
