Why did the Justice Department let the Black Panthers off the hook?

John Fund examines this clear case of voter intimidation in his column at the Wall Street Journal.

There is video evidence of Black Panther members standing outside a polling station on election day, wearing paramilitary gear and holding a nighstick/club. Yet somehow, Eric Holder (Mr. AmericaisaNationofCowards) and his crew at the Justice Department have made the charges disappear.

"There was outrage over the decision among Congressional Republicans, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, and in the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division—especially after it was learned one of the defendants who walked was Jerry Jackson, a member of Philadelphia's 14th Ward Democratic Committee and a credentialed poll watcher for the Democratic Party last Election Day. "

I think we know who the real cowards are.
