As Trayvon Furor Grows, New Black Panthers Offer Reward For Zimmerman

SANFORD (CBSMiami) – In what may be one of the more disturbing facets in the effort to bring charges against the man who killed Trayvon Martin and claimed it was in self defense, the New Black Panthers have offered a $10 thousand “reward” for the “capture” of neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman.

Since Zimmerman has not been charged with anything, and is technically not on the run, some claim that what the Panthers are offering is simply a bounty. New Black Panther leader Mikhail Muhammad announced the reward during a protest in Sanford Saturday. When asked whether he was inciting violence, Muhammad offered a defiant answer.  “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, ” he said.

The group also called for the mobilization of thousands of black men to search for Zimmerman in the Maitland area, where he last worked.

“If the government won’t do the job, we’ll do it,” Muhammad said.

Zimmerman’s whereabouts are currently unknown.

The organization is also looking for money as it appears unwilling to allow the justice system, and numerous parallel investigations, to reach a conclusion. They’ve set a $1 million goal for next week.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has called the New Black Panther Party, a black-separatist group, “virulently racist” and “anti-Semitic.”

      No what we need is our criminal justice system to do its dam job, if the laws were equal, there would be no need for “seperatists” groups. I think its great that black people are finding a common ground to stand on just like (latin pride, kkk, etc. every race is ever increasingly needing a watch group to protect their own interests where our gov’t blinds their eye in the place of justice for all.. Kuddos, finally)..

        I agree with there being a need for community to come together, but inciting violence or unlawful acts is not cool.

  2. Betty says:

    Typical “thug” behavior…When will the black community realize that this makes them look just as bad if not worse than Zimmerman…….

    1. beatdude says:

      I also feel this is a bad move, but this group does not represent the black community as a whole.

    New Black Panther Party Leader, An EYE FOR AN EYE orTOOTH FOR A TOOTH!,will not change the fact that Trayvon Martin is dead,Don’t advocate more violence,with racist retoric,riots and civil unrest,won’t make a change.in the 60’s and 70’s, check your history!! where there were racial unrest and destruction of property in the Millions of Dollars,and death and injuries.Placing a bounty on Zimmerman’s head is foolish and Uncalled for,because the THE NEW BLACK PANTHER PARTY is not above the law! Do Not dishonor the tradegy of the loss to the grieving family.Retract your blood money reward until after the legal course of the law is done.

  5. Buzz says:

      Everyone loves a bigot! God bless you!

    Just listen to the interview. He sounds very ignorant. Besides, it doesn’t even make sense to “capture” him. Isn’t that kidnapping?

    1. beatdude says:

      That would be kidnapping indeed. Mr Zimmerman is not a fugitive so, detaining him in anyway would be against the law.
