The Black Panthers Offer A Bounty For The Capture Of George Zimmerman

From Laura at Ace of Spades:

You can pin this little medal straight on Eric Holder's lapel.
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. When asked whether he was inciting violence, Muhammad replied defiantly saying: "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."
The bounty announcement came moments after members of the group called for the mobilization of 10,000 black men to capture George Zimmerman, the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin last month.
Muhammad said members of his group would search for Zimmerman themselves in Maitland and Jacksonville -- where the 28-year old worked before the shooting, employees there told the Orlando Sentinel.
Now, how in the world could these fine gents feel so bold as to openly threaten someone, and publicly offer a contract for an illegal kidnapping? Why, it is almost as though they believe the law no longer applies to them. Almost like they have some precedent for believing that.
Our feet have been set on a dangerous path by an administration that is profoundly thoughtless in word, and belligerent in deed, towards the rule of law and the Constitution. It is the path toward warring factions, the splintering of our common society, and a constant inflammation of ethnic strife.
The path toward Stupid, in other words.
I reject tribalism, and any sane American should too.

Welcome to post-racial America, huh?

Let's see....Suppose somebody called for 10,000 white men to go after a black man who did some deed for which that white man hasn't been charged, tried, and convicted.

Is nobody going to charge the NBPP for calling for this posse?

I read this morning that Spike Lee has tweeted Zimmerman's home address.
