SANFORD Members of the New Black Panther Party are offering a $10,000 reward for the "capture" of George Zimmerman, leader Mikhail Muhammad announced during a protest in Sanford today.
The bounty announcement came moments after members of the group called for the mobilization of 5,000 black men to capture George Zimmerman, the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin last month.
The New Black Panthers will hold a protest in Sanford just before 1 p.m. today, the activist group's third protest in the past two weeks over the fatal shooting of the Miami Gardens teen.
The group called for Zimmerman's arrest and threatened to find and detain him if police were not willing to do so. But group members didn't call for the mobilization of thousands until Saturday.
Muhammed led the group in chanting "Justice for Trayvon!" and "Black Power!"

Isn’t solicitation of kidnapping a crime? With no official warrant out for Zimmerman it’s hard to interpret offering a $10k ‘reward’ for ‘capturing’ him as anything less than that. Will the media be demanding the arrest and trial of Mikhail Muhammad for this?
Is Durbin going to investigate this bounty?
,,,,, not a lunch mob but rather a lynch mob see above error .
Racist thugs warming up for the long hot summer. This will not end well. "Detain Zimmerman"? Under what authority? Possibly under the authority of Eric "the Red" Holder and "his people".
This is completely insane.
ummm isn’t this a crime???
Garbage like this should be instantly against the law and result in legal action against these New BP thugs. This is just another variety of vigilantism. They’re putting a bounty on someone and they have no legal authority to take any action in a case like this.
Yep,that’s about right. I think the black and liberal community are playing with fire here. They keep trying to incite a race war with out really understanding if they do they will probably get the worst of it.
Okay, you are IGNORANT!
Judith Miller on Fox News Watch, was just convicting Zimmerman on air. What a byotch! She acts like a moderate, but is a liberal through and through.
These are Obama’s kind of guys.
I think you are right. Bounty hunters can’t just go and find someone and bring them in.
Among other legalities, there has to be an arrest warrant issued for someone.
Sometimes, liberals lecture us about how we have to follow the laws and regulations in our legal system, to serve the cause of justice. But other times, such as this case, the liberals don’t care about legalities. They just want to lynch this guy, regardless of any legal process.
In fact, the fact that Zimmerman was not arrested and charged at the time is a major part of this which has liberals upset. The police did their investigation at the time and decided there was not evidence to charge Zimmerman, that it was self-defense. But the liberals have decided that we should not care about such legalities in this case.
Somebody had better pull the brake on this real damn soon. This is outrageous and if law officials and gov’t won’t protect Zimmerman and stop these rabid racists, then regular folk should.
Obaba and the racist blacks could care less if it was a black killing a white/hispanic/oriental.
Blacks are by far the most racist group in the US.
I heard a radio interview...a black was asked who he was going to vote for: said Obama, because he was black.
The New Black Panther Party has $10,000?
Laws and rules do not apply to leftists, we learned this long ago
I think one of their pals already tried to detain him.
maybe now - the FBI has a real reason for being there - a national organization forming a conspiracy to break the law.
I’m tired of waiting for Black America to “get it”. At this point - I must conclude - any social/demographic group that does not win its own freedom, does not have the cultural maturity to value it and keep it safe.
Blacks are 25% of the Democrat vote. Without them - Dems lose every national election by 10%.
They want to make us all slaves. I’m sorry - but I have had enough.
Sounds like this is the warm up to CW2!
