A poll observer in Philadelphia called police after witnessing what appeared to be voter intimidation by two members of the Black Panthers.

The two Black Panthers stood in the doorway of the polling location where the observer attempted to enter. One Panther was brandishing a nightstick, Fox News reported.

The observer reported that one of the Panthers members said to him, “black people are going to win no matter what,” and stood shoulder to shoulder so that the observer had to push his way through.

“Anyone . . . in front of a polling place with a nightstick, that is intimidating for all voters,” the observer stated. While a local university student filmed on a camera phone, one Panther member, when asked by Fox’s reporter why he was standing in front of the polling location, said, “We’re security,” though polling personnel did not acknowledge such security.

Police were dispatched to the scene and the nightstick-toting Panther member was ushered away.
