New Black Panther Party Offers $10K Bounty on Zimmerman
The New Black Panthers Offer $10K For Zimmerman’s Head
Over the weekend, Mikhail Muhammad of the New Black Panther Party spoke out about the injustice surrounding the alleged murder of Trayvon Martin by community volunteer George Zimmerman.
The New Black Panther Party demonstrated their distaste with the Florida laws and the actions, or lack thereof, taken by the U.S. government against Mr. Zimmerman. Mikhail Muhammad called for, “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.” Muhammad has heightened the instensity of this montra by offering a $10,000 reward for anyone who kills George Zimmerman.
On a National scale, the shooting death of Trayvon Martin has brought up questions about whether Zimmerman, who was on a Neighborhood Watch patrol, racially profiled Martin and if local police’s failure to arrest Zimmerman had to do with racism.
The New Black Panther Party offer has been met with a great deal of backlash from the media. Mr. Muhammed was interviewd on the CNN by Anderson Cooper. Cooper debated with the Party Leader about the fact that Trayvon’s father does not believe in his Hammurabic mentaility.
I do not believe that a bounty program nor a citizen’s execution is the proper channel to handle this very delicate situation. If this bounty is more a media ploy than an actual execution order, then Mikhail Muhammad and the New Black Panther Party know exactly what they are doing.
