After reading this article I don't think it will matter what the true facts are even after they come out. The DOJ is investigating it as a hate crime and with Holder's current problems you can bet there will be a prosecution. Then you read this about the NBP's and the language used and wonder if this guy is going to have to use a weapon again to defend himself.
I guess this was to be expected after Jackson and Sharpton got there and started their usual racial agitation of people. This is going to get a lot uglier a lot faster than people thought.
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.
When asked whether he was inciting violence, Muhammad replied defiantly saying: "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."
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.
Muhammad said members of his group would search for Zimmerman themselves in Maitland and Jacksonville -- where the 28-year old worked before the shooting, employees there told the Orlando Sentinel. But he declined to say when they will begin their hunt.
Trayvon Martin case: New Black Panthers offer $10,000 bounty for capture of George Zimmerman
New Black Panther party issued a "Wanted dead or Alive" poster on George Zimmerman. Since the DOJ seems to look the other way with these radical nuts I'm sure that nothing will be done.
This is an interesting test of the First Amendment. Is this speech criminal or not? IIRC and IANAL, but if this threat is issued sincerely and if it is deemed inciteful of criminal action, then this speech is criminal and not protected for the First Amendment.
