In comments that can be seen as an effort to intimidate Florida's special state prosecutor Angela Corey with nationwide race riots, Benjamin Crump, an attorney for the family of slain 17 year-old black Floridian Trayvon Martin warned of "pandemonium" around America and the world should Corey decide to not prosecute admitted Martin killer George Zimmerman, who has claimed self-defense. Crump issued the dire warning in an interview with BBC5.
In a case that has inflamed racial tensions across the United States and drawn global attention, the unarmed Martin was shot to death by Zimmerman on February 26 as he walked in a gated community in Sanford, Florida, where Martin was staying with his father at the home of his father's fiance. Minutes before the shooting, Zimmerman had called police to report a suspicious man in his community where he served as a neighborhood watch volunteer.
Sanford police briefly detained, but did not charge Zimmerman in the shooting. The 5'9", 28 year-old Zimmerman has claimed self-defense, saying Martin had attacked him and he feared for his well-being as the 6'3" Martin pounded his head on the ground after knocking him off his feet with a sucker punch.
Crump was speaking to the BBC after the special Florida state prosecutor Angela Corey announced on Monday that she would not empanel a grand jury in the case and would decide on her own whether to prosecute Zimmerman.
Crump expressed confidence that Corey would eventually charge Zimmerman, but when queried by the BBC that Corey could indeed choose to not prosecute Zimmerman, Crump said,"She could, yeah she could. And I think if she did that (decided to not prosecute Zimmerman)it would be pandemonium. There would be outrage all over America and all over the world."
Crump has waged a successful public relations campaign to bring public pressure on authorities to investigate the shooting of Martin. Because Zimmerman was characterized in the media as a 'white Hispanic' and Martin was black, the case has been played out in racial terms as well as simple calls for justice. The Obama Justice Department is investigating whether Zimmerman violated Martin's civil rights by committing a so-called hate crime.
Crump's statement warning of global "pandemonium" adds to racial and vigilante tensions in the case already inflamed by statements from President Obama, the New Black Panthers and white neo-Nazis, as well as by celebrities Spike Lee and Roseanne Barr who publicized what they believed to be the home addresses of Zimmerman and his family.
Early Tuesday morning,an unmanned Sanford police car parked outside the neighborhood where the Martin shooting took place, had it's windows shattered by reported gunshots. That followed the Sanford police headquarters being shut down by peaceful college students who blocked the building's entrance to demand Zimmerman's arrest.
A $10,000 bounty for the dead or alive capture of Zimmerman has been announced by the New Black Panther Party. The Obama administration has been silent in the face of the Panthers' clear violation of the law and threat to civil society.
A very interesting post/thread. BE PREPARED.

Hey BR lose the HPs, no penetration. Mag up w/ Buffalo Bore 100 gr. Hardcast F.N. +p.
They got the signal from Obama, “Zimmerman killed my Hypotetical son”, so unleash the dogs.
If I am the lawyer for Zimmerman, I am holding press conferences every day, demanding that the president issue a statement calling off his people.
one attacker got ten years, was released w/time off for good behavior. He’s now doing 47 years for murdering a drug dealer. other 3 got off.
Isn’t “pandemonium” what happened when Trayvon Martin attacked George Zimmerman?
The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.
The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.
Obama approved this message.
In this case, the "warning" is a conditional threat, which is not actionable. A threat would be "I will do X to you." A conditional threat would be "If you do Y, I will do X to you."
Exactly, it's pathetic that not even ONE republican has called for Holder to resign NOT EVEN ONE!
We are truly without representation.
Please support new house bill “Kill a Cracker Day”.
If she does not charge him, look for Spike Lee to tweet her home address.
I wonder what the per-hour billing rate for attorneys is for inciting riots.
Yes, I know of that bill! It was sponsored by the Skittles party. ;-)
They got the Pandemonium, and the Police have the Tear Gas and Water Cannons. Violence should not be tolerated.
Maybe Holder could charge her with hate crimes.
I have seen this atrocity posted, with this picture, a few times on FR and hope to see it many more. I don’t see where ot’s getting enough of a response and if anything should outrage and horrify Freepers and make oir blood boil, this should. Thanks for posting it, and I hope the family gets justice-true justice. I hope the savage subhuman who did it gets lethal injection and has a horrible reaction to the chemicals as he dies. In my mind I put my own dear grandparents in their place, and I know at least half my family would be hard-pressed to wait for the case to make its way through the court. I cannot imagine the horror, helplessness this couple went through because of a savage beast whom it would have been a mercy to society to drown at birth.
If this man is charged with a crime just to please the commies, it’s past time for civil war. That’s just not the way we do business in this nation. Are we going to stand and watch a man sacrifice his whole life because he defended his life?
They’ve been ignoring it for years, the media is complicit. Even though the rates of black-on-white crime, especially rape, are outrageously higher than vice versa-and the incidents more horrific and savage. Like warfare in the Congo, all that’s missing are the machetes and the cannibalism.
As with another group (Muslims), the powers that be have used a light hamd in dealing with black-on-white crime, because they’ve known which group has more propensity to outbreaks of violence (rioting, burning, looting, assaults of innocent bystanders) and which one doesn’t.
Hussein and Holder go even further by giving unmistakeable signals to “their people” that they can “wild” with impunity. Remember the term “wilding” from the Central Park jogger rape case? This has been going on for a long time. Statistics show that even before desegregation in Detroit, black-on-white crimes were higher han lthe reverse. That’s back when they were “oppressed”!
Get the decent folk out of the inner cities. The parasites will burn their own neighborhoods to the ground. Then stop the shipments of food and fuel to the inner cities. Soften them up a bit,then see if they still want trouble.
Yes, La Raza already made an official statement disowning Zimmerman. Anything that pokes a finger in YT’s eye is to the good. But we’re still a bare majority, even discounting the bleeding-hearts, and as a race up to the task. A handful of British ruled India.
This is why I don’t know how anyone thinks we can use Congress as a restraint in the event of Obango’s re-election. If he’s being this insufferable now, the mask will completely come off if he gets a second term.
