New York City’s gun laws are so draconian, they can land even those with friends at the very top behind bars:
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. …
Shabazz, whose real name is Maruse Heath, is best known for bringing a club to a North Philadelphia polling station on Election Day in 2008, leading to a federal probe on voter intimidation.
After Shabazz was caught on video trying to scare white voters away from the polls, the Justice Department easily locked down a case against him. But then Obama took power, and named the radical black power advocate Eric Holder as Attorney General. Appallingly if unsurprisingly, the charges were dropped. Shabazz’s election day behavior is permissible in the fundamentally transformed America we now live in, so long as it is directed against whites.
Something else Shabazz is known for is publicly calling for the murder of white children. Here he is in action:
He has KILL WHITEY tattooed in block letters on his forehead.
Shabazz was jailed on $75,000 bail on charges of illegal gun possession and illegal wearing of body armor. He faces a mandatory minimum of 3 ½ years and a maximum of 15 years in jail if convicted, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
In the end, a call to Eric Holder should take care of it. As head of the Philadelphia chapter of the New Black Panthers, Shabazz is an important guy in an organization with which Holder’s boss is on excellent terms (see here and here and here).
