Black Panther offers $10,000 to ‘capture’ Trayvon Martin’s killer George Zimmerman

Post to Twitter

Check this out. Now we put bounties on people in America. Amazing. JD

The new Black Panther Party offered a bounty of $10,000 Saturday for the “capture” of a Florida neighborhood watch captain who killed unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.

“An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” leader Mikhail Muhammad said after announcing the reward for George Zimmerman at a protest in Sanford, Fla.

Muhammad called on 5,000 black men to mobilize and capture the neighborhood watch volunteer.

“If the government won’t do the job, we’ll do it,” Muhammad said, leading chants that included “freedom or death” and “justice for Trayvon.”

Muhammad said New Black Panther’s chairman, Malik Zulu Shabaz of Washington, was taking donations from black entertainers and athletes.

The group hopes to collect $1 million off the outrage by next week.

New Black Panthers members pointed to what they called the inaction of government officials — from Sanford city officials up to the governor — and accused them of lying and delaying justice.

They also said Angela Corley, the newly appointed special prosecutor, was an enemy of the black community.

“She has a track record of sending innocent young black men and women to prison,” Muhammad said.

The Southern Poverty Law Center calls the New Black Panther Party, a black-separatist group created in 1989, “virulently racist and anti-Semitic.”

Martin, who is African-American, was wearing a hoodie and carrying a pack of Skittles and an ice tea on the night of Feb. 26. He was heading back to his father’s fiance’s townhouse.

Zimmerman, 28, called 911 to report a suspicious person in the gated community and followed the teen despite the dispatcher’s request that he stand down.

Zimmerman said he shot Martin in self-defense. Zimmerman’s family says he is Hispanic and race was not an issue.

A Florida man was also charged Friday with threatening to kill Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee and his family.

Lee temporarily stepped down as chief over the case.

Trayvon’s mom said she was having a hard time realizing that her son’s not coming home, People magazine reported Saturday.

“I look at every door and think, he’s just going to walk through it any minute,” Sybrina Fulton told the magazine.“I just want to see him again, but I can’t.

“He’s in heaven, looking down at me.”

Cracker shirts hit Florida Streets Over Trayvon Martin Killing

Post to Twitter

I was in a rather heated debate with a co-worker yesterday over the Trayvon Martin killing in Florida last month. The co-worker, an African American, was standing and yelling at me while I sat, trying to say that it might be prudent to wait for the police investigation because there are two witnesses that said that young Trayvon was attacking George Zimmerman.

What was most striking about the discussion was that my co-worker seemed almost blinded by his own inability to understand my reasoning and instead chose to believe the media account of the story, the same media that has for years done everything they can do to stir controversy and peddle racism like a precious commodity to the masses in an attempt to inflate their ratings.

Last night I read that George Zimmerman was treated immediately after the incident for a broken nose and a laceration to the back of his head.

Today I see that our ignorant media actually knew this little tidbit three days after the killing, but chose to sit on thisinformation for the last month to stir racial tensions.

It might be important to point out that this is an election year and the current buffoon sitting in the captains chair in Washington DC is half black.

I would never defend the actions of George Zimmerman. I was not doing so yesterday when my co-worker blew up, rose out of his chair and began shouting at me for daring to point out a couple of pertinent observations.

First, very little information has been released in this case by any officials from Florida.

Second, Almost all of the information in the case is based on hearsay.

The media has convinced everyone with black skin that the incident was racially motivated and a willing public is basing their entire argument on the hearsay that is being propagated by the media.

Its almost embarrassing at this point to see that in today’s America, logic and reason seem to have fallen by the wayside in favor of incendiary reaction with no regard to fact or truth.

The only message I was trying to convey to my co-worker was to simply wait to hear the FACTS of the case before reacting the way he was reacting.

I guess what it really comes down to is simplistic reaction trumps all logic. JD
