    I was in high school marching band during the time of those riots. We practiced our football game halftime routines on Wednesday nights. After we were done about 9PM, a bunch of 20+ year old men from the adjoining neighborhood came into the band room and beat the crap out of the 10 or so high school kids who were still hanging around. One of the kids got his head beat in pretty bad with a baseball bat. It happened again in the middle of the school day in the cafeteria, with tire irons and chains...easy access through the outside entrances.

    My older brother was in the U.S. Army Band and was in downtown DC for an event that day. A bunch of them got beat up pretty bad. He had stitches on his lip. He played trombone for a living.

    Then there were the Black Panthers at the polling places in Pennsylvania intimidating voters in 2008.

    All this pot stirring. Too much money and power in it to ever stop on its own.

    I forgot all about this page out of our sitting Democrat governor's college yearbook:

    @John Brunner

    Chris Plante (WMAL AM in DC) educated us about the good guv'nor's antics and the thugs at the polling place were the so-called NEW BPP. Even the communists at the SPLC have deemed them a hate group.

    No, but if I did, I'd pull out my Gideon bible (which I carry all the time), and point out why they are wrong.

    For example, Gal 3:28 where "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, (nor black nor white), nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."
    (The parenthetical phrase is implied). Also other scriptures are applicable.

    Yup. And where was/is our judicial system?

    As an aside, that WMAL reference sure brings back memories. I lived in the area from 1963-2010 and delivered The Evening Star as a kid (which I believe was purchased by WMAL as one point.) I know WMAL migrated to FM...didn't know the AM side was still alive.
