A high-ranking member of the New Black Panther Party was arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, the DeKalb County Sheriffs Office said Monday.
DeKalb County Sheriff's Office Hashim Nzinga, 49, was arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Hashim Nzinga, 49, recently announced on CNN that his group was offering a $10,000 reward for the capture of George Zimmerman, the man who fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla. CNN identified Nzinga as the chief of staff of the New Black Panther Party.
According to a DeKalb arrest warrant, Nzinga was in possession of an FN Herstal 5.7 x 28 handgun, which investigators said he pawned at a shop on Rockbridge Road. That alleged transaction would be illegal due to Nzingas convictions last month for felony deposit account fraud in Gwinnett County, the DeKalb Sheriff's Office said.
Nzinga was arrested by members of the fugitive squad at a probation office in Lawrenceville and transported to DeKalb County Jail.
The New Black Panther Party is offering a $10,000 bounty for the capture of Zimmerman, the Florida neighborhood watch captain who shot and killed Martin, an unarmed teenager, last month.
"An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth," Black Panther leader Mikhail Muhammad said Saturday at a rally in Sanford, where Martin was killed Feb. 26, according to Fox News.
Zimmerman has claimed he shot Martin in self-defense, but the New Black Panthers are calling for mobilization of 10,000 black men to capture Zimmerman, who has gone into hiding, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
"He should be fearful for his life," Muhammad said. "You can't keep killing black children."

Never screw with the computer guy. :)
oh their ignorance is working, read this site and it shows how they refuse to believe the facts, even going as far as saying Zimmerman knocked himself out.
It is staggering how ignorant these idiots are.
Morning,friend. I have to remember to use that at the blackjack tables the next time I’m in Vegas!
Muslims stick together.
can you put the photo’s which are updated of Zimmerman and Martin please.
Especially the media bias one?
The world of white useful idiots is being played, even some in my extended family. They bought the media hype and are reacting to the genuinely tragic aspects of the killing without using any logic filter. It has become a cause celebre and their idignation strokes their egos.
But, as a more complete portrait of Martin surfaces they will back away...after all, these people (libs) are racist at heart and will shrink from marching for a less angelic symbol of black youth.
None of these 'revelations' about Martin's current style alters the known facts of the case any more than the media's portrayal of him as an altar boy does. They will only alter the level of support from the "look at me - I care" left.
These Black Pussy Cats look desperate for some recognition... so glad the authorities down there are willing to go after these “burps” for cause...
thank you, I’m posting this on FB and sending this out to people I know.
The old photo’s making him look a saint and Zimmerman as a thug is disgraceful and the truth needs to get out.
He was no angel and that one on the skiing trip, HUH, where did the money come from on that , same as the gold teeth he had
Now, imagine if N-word tees appeared on white folks whenever the blacks committed an atrocity... say OJ, or even the murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.
Who is the guy in your picture?
see the link at post 42 and you’ll see how deranged and ignorant some people are when it comes to facts.
No matter what is said now many in the black community and the fools on the left will ever believe it, hell they are saying Zimmerman knocked himself out or you don’t have a right to carry a gun here or that is not the photo of the black young guy, they actually think he is still that 12 year old kid.
That 5.7 ammo don’t come cheap, gotta have priorities.
LBJ & the ‘68 democrats were before the Cloward-Piven strategy was hatched. They’ll benefit from it this time.
Remember: never let a good crisis go to waste.
Didnt do nuffin!
If Obama had a son, he’d have a big mouth just like that kid.
Nice work, Laz!!
