Duke Lacrosse Case: Black Panthers Turned Aside

Via the Raleigh News and Observer:

DURHAM – About 40 members of the New Black Panthers for Self Defense were turned away Monday at the gates of Duke University. The group had said it would confront lacrosse players about rape accusations made by a woman hired to dance at a team party.

Chanting “black power” and demanding a guilty verdict against two Duke athletes arrested in the case, the New Panthers then marched past the student hangouts along Ninth Street to rally at the Buchanan Boulevard house where the party was held.

The players charged, Collin Finnerty and Reade Seligmann, are white. Their accuser is black.

“This is a hate crime, and we want a conviction,” declared Malik Zulu Shabazz, the national chairman of the New Panthers, a black separatist group based in Atlanta that is disavowed by the original Black Panther Party. “We are mad and fired up. We demand justice, and we will have justice, one way or the other.”

What they want to reintroduce, apparently, is reverse lynching. No day in court, no actual evidence, just feelings which lead vigilante justice.

    Typical. Time to end this lynch mob mentality and enforce the laws. Innocent until proven guilty. And next, sue the false accusation if this is not trut. Time to put an end to these types of allegations that smear the names and reputations of good people.

    But they HAVE to be guilty, cause they are white. Or so goes the Black panther dogma. I just have to wonder if they will march and pull the same shenanigans if a black rapes a white, or a white rapes an oriental, etc.
