Common Sense vs. the Black Panthers

I guess there's still some common sense in the U.S. after all. The Black Panthers, according to the poster, were trying to protest the home of a man who shot burglars in his home. The community responded. I strongly recommend turning your volume to the lowest setting before starting the clip. Also, the first minute or so is all one needs to see to get the gist. The Black panthers left after about 10 minutes of this.

By the way, I don't begrudge the Black Panthers their activism, so long as they keep it within the bounds of the law. If the story is as presented they need to choose better reasons to demonstrate, however. Shooting a burglar in one's own home, if one believes there is imminent danger, is considered acceptable everywhere in the United States. It's not a race thing, it's a self-defense thing.
