New Black Panther who sparked voter intimidation probe in 2008 arrested on gun charges:

A member of the New Black Panther Party who sparked a federal probe for voter intimidation in 2008 has been arrested on gun charges in New York.

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 was arrested without incident at about 10:30 p.m. on June 20 after officers stopped him to talk about the vest under his clothing, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne told FoxNews.com.

"When they stopped to talk to him about it and patted him down for their own safety, they discovered that he was armed with a loaded, illegal five-shot revolver," Browne wrote in an email.

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.

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 ˝ years and a maximum of 15 years in jail if convicted, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Shabazz, whose attorney could not be reached for comment, was in New York to help plan a September march commemorating the 15th anniversary of the Million Youth March. He is scheduled to appear in a Manhattan courtroom on Wednesday.

Black Panther leaders have dubbed Shabazz — who has previously called for the extermination of white people — a "political prisoner" and plan a rally and fundraiser in his honor on Monday night at a Harlem restaurant, the newspaper reports.

Our justice dept will probably decide to be a strong defender of the 4th Amendment in this case.

If that is not a violation of self-defense rights, I don't know what is.

Just something I found on the net. I have neither the time nor inclination to research it further right now.

S270.20 Unlawful wearing of a body vest.
1. A person is guilty of the unlawful wearing of a body vest when
acting either alone or with one or more other persons he commits any
violent felony offense defined in section 70.02 while possessing a
firearm, rifle or shotgun and in the course of and in furtherance of
such crime he wears a body vest.
2. For the purposes of this section a "body vest" means a
bullet-resistant soft body armor providing, as a minimum standard, the
level of protection known as threat level I which shall mean at least
seven layers of bullet-resistant material providing protection from
three shots of one hundred fifty-eight grain lead ammunition fired from
a .38 caliber handgun at a velocity of eight hundred fifty feet per
second.

Just based on the original article Grizzly posted and what Bambi Buster posted, it would seem like the dude shouldn't have been stopped by the police. If the police stopped and searched him because he was wearing a bulletproof vest and he wasn't in the commission of a crime, he wasn't doing anything wrong according to that statute. They didn't see or find the illegal gun on him until they patted him down.

I think he is a scumbag and at the least a bully, and probably has plenty of crimes in his background, but he may have a pretty good case to get these charges dropped if he was searched just because he was wearing a BP vest.

I agree with every word you are saying but I would look the other way if they decided to throw him in a hole and cover him with wet cement too. \:\)
