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.
If Zimmerman were black and Trayvon white, it would be not big deal as usual..... no hoodie marches, bounty’s, Shapton, Jerkson....just the usual crickets......Whitey’s
just don’t have it when it comes to “no justice, no peace” wars....
What is this 'OR' you speak of?
My tribe values diversity of caliber.
At some point the evidence is going to have to be released, to put this to rest. Zimmerman’s family keeps saying people should wait until they get to see the evidence, but what’s the avenue for that to happen? Maybe it would come out after the state attorney reports her findings?
There’s not probable cause for Zimmerman having committed a crime so if it’s going to come out in a court of law it would have to be through some other charges. Can’t charge Trayvon with assault because he’s dead.
Maybe a civil suit claiming either obstruction of justice on the part of the police department (is that even possible to file?) or a defamation suit filed by Zimmerman?
At the rate we’re going maybe murder charges against the New Black Panthers, if they get what they’re after for Zimmerman...
The Hispanic is about to be lynched, it seems.
And the whirlwind will consume the Democrat Party.
“pandemonium” = violence against Whites.
As long as our Senators think cabinet confirmations are a beauty pageant rather than a critical check and balance on the executive branch, this country is basically lawless.
When is the House going to vote to impeach Holder? It is WAY past due.
IOW if zimmerman is 100% innocent he should still be charge to send a message in support of hoddie racism?!
I’m curious - have there been any mention of what/if any gang affiliation either Trayvon OR Zimmerman may be had connections to? This “intimidation” smacks of gangland-style intimidation, and depending upon the affiliations if word goes out (or has already), then this is something way more in-depth than the players would have us believe.
If the NBPP is the one holding the ransom - one only needs to look into where their connection extends. There was a reason Holder said, “those are my PEOPLE”. And it isn’t an off-handed remark for those who were listening.
Yes, sadly, sjb, but since they’ve got no collective sacs/spines, it’s to be expected, isn’t it?
But far, far worse - but to be expected too, considering the racist-in-charge) - is the Dept of INJustice who is actively ignoring it and all the many prior incidents (’New’ Black Pampers’ voting intimidation), which are directly leading to a full-blown race war.
Sounds more like threatening him.
And a lynch mob to boot...
It's almost as if this has been scripted by the 0bama campaign. Evoking sympathy for Trayvon translates to votes for 0bama!
“Strictly speaking pandemonium is a case where multiple demons are released. Its a religious reference.”
It calls to my mind Milton’s Paradise Lost, in which “pandaemonium” is either a meeting of demons in hell or the building in which all the demons meet, I forget. Anyway, they all get together with Satan to decide how to get back at God.
Martin doesn’t get a private attny. He is represented by the state.
It's what allows obama to continue in office.
Their plans may be bigger than any of us suspect. The New Black Panther Party is associated with another Muslim terrorist group: Hezbollah, which Rep Steve King is warning us has its tentacles everywhere.
What people may not realize is that Hezbollah operatives were flown on direct unchecked flights from Iran to Venezuela. Iraq, Syria, and Iran have a standing agreement that when one of them is in danger of invasion, they are to transfer their WMD’s to the country that is more secure. Iraq sent their WMD’s to Syria right before the invasion to unseat Saddam, and if Obama is even considering going to war in Syria you can bet those WMD’s have already been shipped out of Syria to Iran, so Obama can’t be accused of directly opening the hornets’ nest.
IOW, we have no idea what WMD’s came on the planes with the Hezbollah operatives to Venezuela. But we can make a pretty sure bet where they were headed - with Eric Holder keeping the door wide open with a welcome mat to boot.
A gun doesn’t do much against chemical or biological weapons. And that may be what we’ll be looking at.
That’s the kind of danger this lawless, foreign enemy combatant in the White House and his stooges are putting this nation into.
So if they want to attack and act like Treyvon Martin then I we need to fight back like George Zimmerman.
They do so at their own peril.
Nice edit, you nailed it! I’m getting so frustrated. Issa has been ignored by Holder, Holder is snubbing Congress. This alone should be an impeachable offense.
