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.
Muhammed led the group in chanting "Justice for Trayvon!" and "Black Power!"

Mr. Zimmerman was cooperative with the police, didn’t lawyer up, and went downtown and spend 5 hours talking with them. Further, he had a broken nose and damage to the back of his head. There was another witness who called 911 who corroborated Zimmerman.
The usual suspects are looking for that other witness.
My apologies, I posted without knowing some relevant

the “Stand Your Ground” laws, which, however are irrelevant,
as this is a self defense case. BTW, Mr. Zimmerman is one
lucky guy, having talked to the police without a lawyer.
