‘Kill Whitey’ Panther Is Held on Gun Rap

Laura Italiano and Jamie Schram, NY Post, June 22, 2013

The tattoo on his face says, “Kill Whitey” in block letters, and cops say the gun he carried was loaded and unlicensed.

But that didn’t stop Maruse Heath—head of the Philadelphia chapter of the New Black Panther Party—from claiming that he’s really all about charity and outreach as he was arraigned on a gun-possession charge in Manhattan last night.

“It is my understanding that the New Black Panther Party is the functional equivalent of the KKK,” Assistant District Attorney Christopher Ryan countered as Heath, 41, was ordered held in lieu of $75,000 bail for getting busted allegedly with a gun in Harlem Thursday night.

Heath, aka “King Salim Shabazz,” was arrested on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard as he left a meeting of New Black Panther Party members. {snip}

Heath was unjustly “jumped” by cops as he left the meeting and walked near Seventh Avenue, said his lawyer, Brad Foster, in arguing unsuccessfully for low bail.

“It is no crime to belong to the Black Panther Party,” the lawyer argued. The group does, “charity work within the local community, outreach to the homeless, and works with at-risk youth who are at risk of becoming criminals.”

“I don’t believe there’s any justification for the stop,” he added. “It’s very dark, 10:30 at night,” he said of cops’ decision to stop Heath for allegedly wearing a bulletproof vest. “They grabbed him by the shoulders and cuffed him and he was in custody.”

But the prosecutor argued that the diminutive Heath was wearing a whopping size-52 ballistic vest — obvious in almost any light.

  • Aw nuts. He couldn’t get popped on the corner of Martin Luther King Blvd. and Malcolm X Blvd.?

    If the Republican Party was a smart party and not the stupid party that it is, it would have this in the hopper for 2016. Here’s how the TV buy would go:

    1. Show MSM article about New Black Panther Party voter intimidation on election day in Philadelphia in 2008, and Eric Holder’s refusal to prosecute with his famous canard, “My People.”

    2. Fade out to a picture of Maruse Heath, focusing on his “Kill Whitey” face tat.

    3. Fade out to a picture of Barack Obama.

    4. Fade out to a picture of Hillary Clinton or whoever the Democrat nominee is in 2016.

    5. While the image is on HRC or the Democrat nominee, background audio should be that of HRC or other nominee praising Obama. Easy audio to find if it’s HRC for she did a lot of it, trickier if it’s someone else.

    6. “I’m (fill in the blank of the name of the Republican nominee in 2016), and I approved this message.”

      Blacks love to give themselves exalted and over-the-top names.

    The tattoo on his face says, “Kill Whitey” in block letters, and cops say the gun he carried was loaded and unlicensed.

    Yet, if he were good enough, he could still get a show on the Food Network.

    • Sloppo

      I think they might have an opening now.

  • Just out for a stroll in his new size 52 bullet proof vest with his new gun.
    No thug would draw attention to himself walking around like that …. idiot.

  • bigone4u

    For once Sharpton and Jesse will leave it alone. Defending that tat would hurt Sharpies’ and Jesse’s chances at shaking down whites for money.
    The “kill whitey” face tattoo is something I would encouage other white-hating blacks to adopt. If a white man or woman has to kill you in the George Zimmerman manner of self defense, few prosecutors will be able to portray you as an innocent child. So wear your hatred of whites proudly, my black brothers.

    Sources told The Post that Heath’s first call while in custody was to Malik Zulu
    Shabazz, who is the national chairman of the New Black Panther Party, considered
    by the Anti-Defamation League, the Southern Poverty Law Center and the U.S.
    Commission on Civil Rights to be a Black supremacist hate group.

    Now that’s really something when the usual suspects call a Bantu organization a hate group.

    • Romulus

      I wonder if that dope knows that Malik is a Jewish name derived from Malachi

    “It is no crime to belong to the Black Panther Party,” the lawyer argued. The group does, “charity work within the local community, outreach to the homeless, and works with at-risk youth who are at risk of becoming criminals.”

    LOL!! I hear the Mafia bosses also did good things within their own neighborhoods.

  • Charity work with a ballistic vest and a concealed handgun? It must be terrible for Shabazz to live in the fear that the Duke University Lacrosse team would find him and take turns sexually assaulting his poor black self.

  • sbuffalonative

    The tattoo on his face says, “Kill Whitey”

    Isn’t that hate speech?

    • Tattoos like that are only hate speech if on white knuckles and read:

      K I L L N * G S

  • A Freespeechzone

    Time to put a bounty out on this “Kill Whitey” racist….oh, I forgot, the only ones that can get away with putting bounties on people are blacks against others…by the way, which by their silence, was supported by Barack H. Obama and Eric Holder….

    The race war will happen…..if Zimmerman gets convicted, “Kill Whitey” will be sanctioned–God help you if you try to defend yourself from a minority thug…

    • A bounty like the one you propose is officially called “solicitation to murder” when white people do it, and – like almost everything else – it’s a felony.

      • A Freespeechzone

        You are absolutely correct; I’m being sarcastic; I do not subscribe to violence against anyone, unless it’s self defense.

        However, I’d like to know why the NBPP is getting a pass on their ability to create a ‘solicitation for murder’.

        Mr. President? Mr. Holder?

        • I do subscribe to violence even in some non-self-defense situations; I refrain because it’s illegal.

  • OhWow

    Blacks are always so quick to give themselves ego trip titles like “King”, “Reverend”, “Princess”, “Queen”, “Boss”, etc.

    It’s quite funny because very often the ones with those names are about as stupid and ghetto as you can get.

    • This is a real name:

      Ya’Hyness Cachet-Andrea Hill-White

    • Romulus

      Just like the the embellished history garbage that’s been spewing out from the left.

    • Ryan Blades

      You Mean an ego trip like changing your given name “Michael” to “Martin Luther”?

  • Beetlejuice

    This [email protected] ** thinks he’s going to kill all of us with his .25 pea shooter? We’d die laughing first. Tattoo does provide a nice target, though.

    No worries, Holder will have him out in a day or two and I hear there is an opening on the cooking channel.

  • The entertaining aspect to this is that if Shabazz receives prison time for this, not being allowed to intimidate voters back in Philadelphia will be the least of his problems. Since possession of an unregistered, permit-less handgun is a felony in New York City, Eric Holder won’t be able to let his favorite pet thug off the hook; the case will be state and not federal.

    When someone receives a succession of slaps on the wrist for increasingly serious offenses, they become used to it, and eventually expect there to be no consequences. This is called “gambler’s ruin”.

  • Sadly, he’s probably going to Riker’s Island where they don’t play real music.

  • This shows you that there’s a difference between white nationalism / ethnonationalism / race realism / human biodiversity and Second Amendment purism / absolutism.

    Did you know that a good chunk of the 2A community and blogosphere is defending this knave? (“We’re not defending him, but…(insert apologetics here)”) That’s the kind of malarkey that turns white people who could be reliable 2A advocates away from it, it makes white suburban soccer moms run right back into the arms of Sarah Brady, when Official 2A-dom defends thug bigoted blacks with “Kill Whitey” tats on their faces, the type I wouldn’t trust with a cast iron skillet much less a modern firearm.

  • Jim Henry

    You people really need to research the facts before commenting. The “Kill Whitey” tattoo on the King’s head refers to Whitey Bulger the gangster. He merely wants him to receive the ultimate punishment. (Very big sarcasm).

    My personal opinion regarding this Angry Black Male is that he has some serious mental issues and must be take from society. He also could use a bath.

  • Funruffian

    This Medusa-headed Bantu looks like it has the AIDS. Just look at the coarse texture of his hide and the early forms of skin lesions. Combine that with a face only a mother could love and this explains why he hates Whitey.

  • DiversityIsDeath

    Eww, how dare the assistance district attorney liken the New Black Panther Party to the KKK.
