Militia Group Wants To Arrest Orlando-Area Community Watch Leader

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A leader of a self-described black militia group says members will go to an Orlando suburb in about a week to attempt a citizen’s arrest on a white neighborhood watch leader who has admitted to fatally shooting an unarmed African-American teen.

The New Black Liberation Militia’s Najee Muhammad said Thursday that members will try to arrest 28-year-old George Zimmerman. Zimmerman heads a neighborhood watch group in Sanford.

Zimmerman told detectives he shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in self-defense last month as the teen was walking back from a store to the house of his father’s fiancé, who lived in the neighborhood.

Martin’s family has criticized the police department for not arresting Zimmerman. An attorney for Martin’s family says they are discouraging any vigilante action.

    Afterwards Eric Holder will award them a Medal of Honor and they will proceed to voting booths and polling stations to patrol outfront and discourage white people from voting.

    OK Corral here we come! Hopefully a new “tombstone” will be erected for the Black Panther Najee Muhammad. Here’s a little music for the occasion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yV5rl7Yb5E

    Writing racist comments we’d never say out loud in real life on websites is fun isn’t it guys!? Ahhhh let us spread our ill-founded hatred throughout the interwebz.

  5. American says:

    Hopefully these pukes get mowed down by a well prepared defense. I’ve no doubt that Zimmerman can find a few people to come over to his house and help pull triggers.

  7. Wow never going to Tampa Florida just full of racist.

  8. You sir are a disgusting human being you think you’re so tough coming on the internet and typing stuff anonymously. You are a coward and God is going to deal with you.

      yeah but you wont……
      a gated neighborhood is not da hood. and a NWA does not fly there.

    There are no black racist, just blacks whom have been radically affected by eons of white racism. Black opions and stances whatever they are have been generated in self defense. If a black boy can be called the aggressor after being stalked then attacked because he tries to defend himself, what kind of environment is this

    1. Big Jake says:

      I agree that your anger is justified. As a white guy, I will never understand what one faces hate based upon skin color. Where I disagree with you is when you state there are no black racists. When there is no education or acceptance, then ignorance will prevail. This is all that is needed for racism to fester. And these facts are not race specific.

    mr coon

    LOL BINGO

  11. Big Jake says:

    And here we go. This clearly shows that racism isn’t just a white thing. When someone tries to “be the law” then you become the lawbreaker. What happened to this kid was tragic and should be fully investigated. This is not the Old West nor some third world country.

    Unquestionably consider that that you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be at the net the easiest thing to consider of. I say to you, I certainly get irked whilst other folks think about concerns that they just do not recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , folks can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thank you
