Most are willing to disavow the New Black Panthers, claiming they are a hate group. That isn't what they had to say about them when they obstructed a voting place, carrying billy clubs and intimidating voters. The Obama Administration Non Justice System dropped the charge for no good reason.Star Member boston bean (12,323 posts) Profile Journal Send DU Mail Ignore
Trayvon Martin: New Black Panthers offer $10,000 bounty for capture of shooter George Zimmerman
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.
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.
The New Black Panthers will hold a protest in Sanford just before 1 p.m. today, the activist group's third protest in the past two weeks over the fatal shooting of the Miami Gardens teen.
The group called for Zimmerman's arrest and threatened to find and detain him if police were not willing to do so. But group members didn't call for the mobilization of thousands until Saturday.

1. Vigilante justice is not the way to go about this.
Grand Jury meets on the 10th (I think - open to correction on that).

4. "No way they don't come back with an indictment"
We live in the United States of America. I hope you're right, but don't hold your breath.
Zimmerman is an extreme danger to black people. He has proven that.And the liberal community including DU has been pouring gun powder into the keg all day and night and are now holding the lit fuse.BootinUp (24,584 posts) Profile Journal Send DU Mail Ignore

to being lit.

17. I seriously doubt NBP really exist. I think it is a set up job,
With tea baggers or Koch industries pushing this forward, simply to distract, offend, and scare the general population. I doubt that reall black panthers would be so transparently stupid. Hell, my congresscritter is bobby rush. And he would know.Star Member EFerrari (161,003 posts) Profile Journal Send DU Mail Ignore

29. Not the black panthers, the NEW black panthers...
Original black panthers say there is no NEW black panther party
Members of the original Black Panther Party have insisted that the newer party is illegitimate and have strongly objected that there "is no new Black Panther Party". The Anti-Defamation League, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights consider the New Black Panthers to be a hate group.eShirl (10,293 posts) Profile Journal Send DU Mail Ignore
