    This man renounced his citizenship, and slurs words of racism and hate..and very clearly says he is military, hogwash more like militant behavior, thank god dekalb country put one of the felons in jail..I read the motto of this group on their website..No educated person would think up such a racist motto..They are a threat to the USA community for trying to instill racism, hate, fear and violence into our society..

    Anderson please listen to all the 911 phone calls Mr. Zimmerman made to the Police Dept during the days, weeks, and months before the shooting. The 911 calls should show some insight in Mr. Zimmerman.

    "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind." Leave that for the legal system. If anyone went after George Zimmerman they wouldn't be any better then him. And trust me, I want to see Zimmerman be put in a prison cell for the rest of his life over this, but putting a bounty on Zimmerman will only ruin someone elses life. If anyone is passionate enough to bring justice for Trayvon they'll continue to voice their outrage an continue to shower the Martin family with support. They'll have my support for the rest of my life.

    Everyone needs to be concerned about this so called new black panther group including the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and Justice Department. When their leader talks about his military and harming others...that's a threat! Him and his group are domestic terrorists plain and simple.

    I agree with the NBPP. If the city would have arrested Zimmerman then they wouldn't be there. The black community is furious and Zimmerman's life is in danger whether he is detained or not. He would have been safer if they would have done their jobs in the first place.

    This guy and his new Black Panther party needs to be called out. He's not helping Trayvon's family or bringing attention to the racial disparities of our youth. This guy claims to be a minister, but he's preaching hate and instigating retaliatory activities. Why doesn't Al Sharpton call this guy out? Black or white, hate is still hate!

    This group, their views & the method in which they are going about presenting their platform, appears to be steeped in ignorance & hipcrocy! While racism, bigotry & hatred along racial lines is very much alive in this country, significant strides have been made toward improvement. Groups like this are opportunistic & only portend to setting the dialogue back to the Pre-Civil Rights era, just as Comments from the radical right have the same effect

    What a disgrace this is. Best qualification for the job, NONE. Cops are well trained in securing a crime scene, (epecially where there is loss of life) Not only do they NOT detain "Zimmerman" they let him leave with the clothes he had on at the time of the incident. If they think they are fooling anyone about the bias for "Zimmerman" they are sadly mistaken. What a disgrace this has been so far and what do they mean "bounty for Zimmerman" is "Zimmerman" "on the lamb." This disgusts me. A young life snuffed out like that for no reason other than him having a problem with keeping his mouth shut in a time if your black and say one thing wrong, your dog meat and your perp will walk free. Sean Bell, Amedo Dialo and how many other murders of innocent people because they, the cops and this wannabe (why wasn't he a cop I wonder) cop. Disgrraceful. He is going to walk, mark my words.

    Absolutely no doubt this was racially motivated. So glad the public realizes this gross injustice and has decided to stand up to it. Just something to be proud of in this horrible tragedy.

    If this represents the new Black Panther Party, then they need to re-visit their overall goals and strategies. Where they are heading now with this representation of who they are, they will do nothing to advance our society. They will seen as not being credible.

    The problem today? People fail to realize that we have a process called the Justice System in America and we are presumed innocent until guilt can be proven. T. Martin is dead and THAT is a tragedy. Yet everyone wants to bypass the judicial system and declare that they themselves are the judge, jury and executioner, all without hearing the full extent of the evidence. No hearing, no evidence, no trial. Just a modern day attempted lynching of a man (Zimmerman) by the racist group New Black Panther. Unfair. Just as in Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery."

    Am white, believe that too many African American children are being racially profiled but is he for real?? Kind of puts a negative slant on what is truly important!

    This is an exercise in bovine scatology at this point. The old or new Black Panther party has nothing to do with the issues of Trayvon Martin, except as they choose to inject themselves. If they do attempt a “citizen’s arrest”. Then they will be arrested for kidnapping.

      I DON'T think so. Mr. Zimmerman needs to march himself to the Police Dept. If he were acting in self-defense, what did he need a lawyer for? He needs more than a herd of lawyers.
