Posted on 04/10/2012 12:15:38 PM PDT by kristinn
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.
I’m pretty sure I have enough ammunition for any pandemonium that finds me.
Sounds more like a threat.
The closer to the election the better. He (we know who i speak of) will own this since Trayvon looks like his imaginary wished for son.
With the new information that has rolled in....
This whole Trayvon thing is peaking. Rev Al was supposed to show up on Easter and didn’t. Crump is desperate and needs the pot to keep boiling. Crump need Trayvon to boost his reputation and send him to the big leagues of scummy lawyers you see on TV. Like scummy Johnny Cochrane who died young of cancer...such a pity

1667, Pandæmonium, in "Paradise Lost" the name of the palace built in the middle of Hell, "the high capital of Satan and all his peers," coined by John Milton (1608-1674)
...from Gk. pan- "all" + L.L. daemonium "evil spirit," from Gk. daimonion "inferior divine power," from daimon "lesser god" (see demon).
...Transferred sense "place of uproar" is from 1779; that of "wild, lawless confusion" is from 1865.
Essentially (informally) -- "ALL DEMONS LOOSE"
Time to pray...
Heavenly Father.... and Jesus our Lord --
We pray to loose Your Holy Spirit on the Earth
Let YOUR KINGDOM COME to Sanford.... to Florida... and into this terrible situation...
Let YOUR WILL BE DONE... here on earth as it is in Heaven.
May God REIGN AND RULE over every word and deed...
Kel-tec P3AT filled with hollow-points is my AMEX card. Kel-tec uses the good mags too.
Don’t even know it’s in your pocket. Made in FL, guaranteed for life. Only $275 at the gun show. Can’t afford a sig or ruger. This is a nice little gun.
Given the same circumstances and if Zimmerman were black and Trayvon white,
they would be threatening ‘pandemonium’ if Zimmerman were to be charged.
In their world, Lady Justice is black and wears no blindfold.
I know Free Speech, ect... but you can't scream fire in a movie theater. You can't threaten death to the President, so why can these ghetto thugs call for the deaths of whites and blood in the streets?
Like Animal Farm, some are more equal than others. Remember blacks cannot commit hate crimes, only white heterosexual Christians can commit hate crimes...
They don’t care if he is guilty or not, their legal strategy is threatening riots.
Gee, Barack Obama sure has brought people together, hasn’t he?
My prediction is that this will not end well for those who warn about “pandemonium”.
Woo Hoo! Free TV’s!
“Trayvon Martin Lawyer Warns Prosecutor of ‘Pandemonium’ if Zimmerman Not Charged”
How about a response of “armageddon” if “pandemonium” breaks out?
Talk about delusions of grandeur, All over the world, what planet do these people live?
As the Fla. law reads, I don’t really see how they can charge Zimmerman with anything.
If I was the local judge, I’d issue a pre-emptive contempt of court with a fine/and or imprisonment. Who the eff is he to threaten if the outcom does not go their way? Is this a Rodney King moment? Or an OJ? I’m sick with it up to here..and if they don’t behave like decent human beings when the verdict is in, then bring it.
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.
Can you just imagine the pain, the humiliation, the horror that dear old lady experienced being gang raped by that pack of feral animals?
(the autopsy states she was raped. Dont think all of these animals didnt all participate)
And can you imagine the pain, the horror of that dear old husband having to witness this?
Theres a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.
WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??
90 year old husbands jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?
85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??
Why does it take a foreign press to enlighten America as to this henious crime?
Where is the outrage?
Yikes! Thanks for the etymology of ‘pandemonium’.
setting up for getting a free tv time...
