    Where's the ACLU or Southern Poverty Law Center to help him out? When will people wake up and realize who the real terrorists are? This guy did. He paid a huge price.

      Balogun has long been an activist, co-founding Guerrilla Mainframe and the Huey P Newton Gun Club, two groups fighting police brutality and advocating for the rights of black gun owners.

        All good questions. If this article is true, every should be screaming their heads off about this.
        They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

          While I have no doubt the NRA would not help this guy if this was gun issue, that's not what this is. This is a clear 1A issue with the government using a gun charge (that was ultimately thrown out) as a way to chill free speech. Ironically, this is all the more reason why the people need guns to protect themselves from this type of tyranny which will only get worse.

            He had guns--they didn't protect him.

            He has legal rights--which will compensate him.

                Then it did involve his 2A rights.

                Of course, this doesn't tell us anything about the NRA that we didn't already know.

                    Compensate? Sure, if he has a hundred grand or so in legal fees just sitting around, he might possibly get a judgement, in which the offenders don't take any responsibility but offer him a $10,000 settlement to make him go away.

                    How about the time they took away from him in a most illegal fashion. How about the fact that a collection of legal authorities colluded to illegally issue a warrant, break into his house, keep him imprisoned without bail, prosecute him on charges that had nothing to do with the warrant?

                    What are the chances of that judge who signed off on the warrant getting prosecuted, or the team of prosecutors who looked at the evidence, realized that there was no case, and scrounged up a charge that the could push; are they going to be put into jail for abuse of authority under color of law, or racketeering, or conspiracy, or false imprisonment? Not likely. I'm sure you'll come up with a legal justification why I'm wrong, but there's a difference between a hair-splitting legality, and the fact that these people did something illegal and unethical, and they're going to get away with it.

                      You're such a troll at this point.

                      His legal rights protected him? The government in charge of those rights is the entity that violated them! Keep enjoying the taste of boot skooly. You are a connoisseur.

                        You know...

                        ...the fact that quite literally NOBODY seems to want to defend this guy makes me wonder if we have all the facts of the case in the original article.

                        Pete (suspects we have only the defendants side of the story, and every one of them says he's a victim)

                          One charge. Charge is thrown out. Guy has lost everything. If you lose everything for a charge that gets thrown out, aren't you a victim?

                            I'm not sure the article states all the facts and conclusions as you characterize them... and I'm not sure we're even getting the full story from that article.... but if you're right, then he'll have an easy field day in Court. If there are Civil Rights violations, he won't have to pay his attorneys out of pocket because they'll be entitled to fees if they prevail. Let's see what happens.

                              To some degree, yes. But looked at in the grand scheme of things, the system worked. Rakem Balogun is free because our system protected him from the state, which was determined to incriminate and incarcerate him. In a lot of other countries, most in fact, he doesn't go free at all. And now he gets to sue for what he lost. I call this a win more than I call it a loss.

                              Pete (knows we can do better, but let's not call a success a total failure)

                                I didn't say his legal rights protected him--I said they'll compensate him.

                                Assuming we're getting the full story. Which is a big assumption.
