"What's Going On" Indeed

Hey, do you remember this from election day:

Of course you don't. The pro-Obama lapdog media would never have put this on the Katie Couric Show. Well, thankfully some folks did take notice but, unfortunately, Obama's appointed flunkies made sure this manner of thuggery will continue:
Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perrelli overruled career lawyers at the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division to drop a complaint against three members of the New Black Panther Party of intimidating voters in Philadelphia during November’s election — including one member Samir Shabazz who brandished a nightstick.

By dropping the complaint, the Obama Administration suggests that other groups could show up at polling places with such weapons and military-style uniforms. What if this were the Aryan Nation or Soldiers of God? Doesn’t brandishing a weapon have an intimidating effect on voters? I understand that the case was weakened by the fact that a police officer allowed at least one man to remain. However, it seems that the section was seeking a modest sanction to keep this group (or other groups) from showing up in paramilitary outfits and weapons.
For the record, a camera phone is not a weapon, which seems lost on what passes for a Black Panter these days.
