Ex-Official Accuses Justice Department of Racial Bias in Black Panther Case

In emotional and personal testimony, an ex-Justice official who quit over the handling of a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party accused his former employer of instructing attorneys in the civil rights division to ignore cases that involve black defendants and white victims.

J. Christian Adams, testifying Tuesday before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, said that “over and over and over again,” the department showed “hostility” toward those cases. He described the Black Panther case as one example of that — he defended the legitimacy of the suit and said his “blood boiled” when he heard a Justice official claim the case wasn’t solid.

“It is false,” Adams said of the claim.

“We abetted wrongdoing and abandoned law-abiding citizens,” he later testified.

The department abandoned the New Black Panther case last year. It stemmed from an incident on Election Day in 2008 in Philadelphia, where members of the party were videotaped in front of a polling place, dressed in military-style uniforms and allegedly hurling racial slurs while one brandished a night stick.

The Bush Justice Department brought the first case against three members of the group, accusing them in a civil complaint of violating the Voter Rights Act. The Obama administration initially pursued the case, winning a default judgment in federal court in April 2009 when the Black Panther members did not appear in court. But then the administration moved to dismiss the charges the following month after getting one of the New Black Panther members to agree to not carry a “deadly weapon” near a polling place until 2012.

In a statement Tuesday, a Justice spokesman said the civil rights division determined “the facts and the law did not support pursuing claims” against the two other defendants and denied Adams’ allegations.

“The department makes enforcement decisions based on the merits, not the race, gender or ethnicity of any party involved. We are committed to comprehensive and vigorous enforcement of both the civil and criminal provisions of the federal laws that prohibit voter intimidation,” the spokesman said.

The Civil Rights Commission, which subpoenaed Adams, has been probing the incident since last year. Adams said he ignored department directives not to testify and eventually quit after he heard Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez testify that there were concerns the Black Panther case was not supported by the facts.

Adams has described the case as open-and-shut and said Tuesday that it was a “very low moment” to hear Perez make that claim.

But he described the department’s hostility toward that and other cases involving black defendants as “pervasive.” Adams cited hostility in the department toward a 2007 voting rights case against a black official in Mississippi who was accused of trying to intimidate voters. Adams said that when the Black Panther case came up, he heard officials in the department say it was “no big deal” and “media-generated” and point to “Fox News” as the source.

But as the investigation unfolded, he said he discovered “indications” that the Black Panther Party was doing the “same thing” to supporters of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary season in early 2008. He urged the commission to pursue testimony from other Justice officials to corroborate his story.

It’s unclear how far the commission will get. The commissioners want to hear from Christopher Coates, the former chief of the Justice Department’s voting section, but the commission claims the Justice Department is blocking Coates from testifying about why the case was dropped.

Sparklehorse Frontman Mark Linkous Commits Suicide…Shot Himself…VIDEO…Tribute…

Mark Linkous, aka Sparklehorse, takes his own life, his family says [Updated]

March 7, 2010

North Carolina-based singer-songwriter Mark Linkous, who recorded under the name Sparklehorse, has committed suicide, his family said. Known most recently as part of the Danger Mouse and David Lynch collaboration “Dark Night of the Soul,” which will finally see an official album release this year, Linkous specialized in a somewhat dreamy, fractured take on blues and folk heard through the prism of his own unique style of songcraft.

The news of his passing was confirmed via an online statement attributed to his family. “It is with great sadness that we share the news that our dear friend and family member, Mark Linkous, took his own life today,” read the statement posted on the official Sparklehorse website. “We are thankful for his time with us and will hold him forever in our hearts.”

[Updated at 2:05 p.m.: A spokeswoman for the artist corroborated the family’s statement and provided additional details. Linkous took his own life with a gun on Saturday, she said. He was 47.]

Frequently working with a wide variety of vintage instruments and curious noisemakers, Linkous first rose to prominence with 1995’s “Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot,” which was produced with the help of Cracker’s David Lowry and spawned the brief alt-radio hit “Someday I Will Treat You Good.” Subsequent albums featured contributions from P.J. Harvey, Tom Waits and Brian Burton’s Danger Mouse, who contributed to Sparklehorse’s 2006 album “Dreamt for Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain.”

Linkous was briefly paralyzed after a near-overdose of Valium and antidepressants in 1996, and eventually grew to use leg braces to get around after the accident destroyed his calf muscles. In a 2007 interview, Linkous talked about struggling with depression for years before recording his 2006 album. “It just got really bad for three years. It was this vortex I couldn’t climb out of,” he explained. “I think probably a little confidence is what helped, and that confidence was music. Just getting a song down, one at a time, that I felt was decent.”

“He’s not like anybody I’ve ever worked with, and probably won’t be,” Burton said in an interview that year. Linkous leaves behind a unique collection of music that never entirely repeated itself, yet never sounded like anything but a Sparklehorse record. A mercurial artist who took five years to follow up his 2001 album “It’s a Wonderful Life,” Linkous was nearly finished with recording a new album for Anti- Records, Rolling Stone reported.

“We are thankful for his time with us and will hold him forever in our hearts,” read the Linkous family statement. “May his journey be peaceful, happy and free. There’s a heaven and there’s a star for you.”

[Updated at 2:05 p.m.: His survivors include his wife, Teresa; his mother, Gloria Hughes Thacker; his father, Frederick Linkous; and his brothers, Matt, Paul and Daniel Linkous.]
