MArooned copied a news essay from Jacqueline in Texas. DaddyBear piled on…
A member of the New Black Panther Party who sparked a federal probe for voter intimidation in 2008 has been arrested on gun charges in New York.
King Samir Shabazz, a 41-year-old Philadelphia street preacher and national field marshal for the New Black Panther Party, was arrested late Thursday in Harlem after NYPD officers spotted him with wearing a bulletproof vest and a loaded, unlicensed handgun.~
~With that said, though, this is a complete and utter farce. Shabazz was stopped for “wearing a bulletproof vest”? It was under his clothing – are the NYPD now using special “bulletproof vest detecting rays” now? On what grounds did they have to search him? I mean, other than he was black, of course – there’s that whole “stop and frisk” program they have going on there in NYC.
Seriously. Go and read the whole thing.
All I could think of had something to do with leopards and spots, and not evolving. National field marshall? Really?
