Trayvon Martin: Two Stories – One Independent Witness: Trayvon Martin: Black Panthers Bounty $10000 to Capture George Zimmerman

The Sanford, Florida Treyvon Martin killing has taken a turn today. Martin was 17 years old, left a sporting event on television to buy Skittles for his little brother. He left the house unarmed. That much has been confirmed. Today there is a report of a witness who saw the confrontation from his home, and says Martin attacked Zimmerman. For several days, the news has been of “racist” police and a “racist” 28-year-old Neighborhood Watch Captain, George Zimmerman. He is half White, half Hispanic and some of his relatives are Black. The police report recorded that Zimmerman had a bloody nose and blood on the back of his head. His attorney says he has a broken nose. He was not arrested. The Sanford Police Captain stepped down over the calls of racism, and says there are threats against his life and his family. The Black Panthers have a Bounty on Zimmerman, offering $10,000.00 for is “capture.” Zimmerman is not “missing,” or “on the lam,” but is surely in hiding in fear for his life. In addition to the Bounty, the Black Panthers are forming an army 10,000 Black men to hunt down Zimmerman.

UPDATE: Apparently the photo of Martin above was taken several years ago, when he was 12 or 14 years old. The following is a more current photo – UPDATE: Dan Riehl on altering the photo of Martin at 17  AND Martin being a “model student”

The media also characterizes Trayvon as a “model student.” In fact, he under a five day suspension when the shooting took place. That is why he was staying at a house so far from his school on a school night. A laywer for Trayvon’s family has blocked access to his school records. However, you have to do something pretty bad to get suspended for five days.

Trayvon Martin at 17 years old?

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. But he declined to say when they will begin their hunt.

Muhammad said the group’s national chairman, Dr. Malik Zulu Shabaz of Washington, D.C. is receiving donations from black entertainers and athletes. They hope to collect $1 million by next week, Muhammad said. Read the entire story at the Chicago Tribune.

American Power Blog has the latest, despicable, actions taken against Zimmerman, by Progressives across the Nation. Dangerous. Read it here.

The Raw Story is reporting that while Martin was on the phone with 911, he told the Operator Martin was approaching him.

From the video:

WITNESS: The guy on the bottom, who I believe had a red sweater on, was yelling to me help, help. I told them stop and I was calling 911…

REPORTER: Trayvon was in a hoodie. Zimmerman was in red. He only gave his name to us as “John,” and he didn’t want to be on camera that night after the shooting, but his statements to the cops were instrumental, because Sanford Police backed up Zimmerman’s claims, saying those screams you hear on this 911 [two screams are heard in the video below] are those of the Neighborhood Watch Captain, not Trayvon Martin.

WITNESS: and when I got upstairs and looked down, the person that was on top, beating up the other guy was the one laying in the grass. I believe he was dead at that point.

REPORTER:…Zimmerman said he was going back to his SUV when he was attacked by the 17-year-old.

American Power has the latest, despicable, actions taken against Zimmerman, by Progressives across the Nation. Dangerous. Read it here.

The Raw Story is reporting that while Martin was on the phone with 911, he told the Operator Martin was approaching him.

Martin was apparently on the phone with his girlfriend, telling her someone is following him. She told him to run. Reportedly, Trayvon said he didn’t want to run:

ABC News was there exclusively as the 16-year-old girl told Crump about the last moments of the teenager’s life. Martin had been talking to his girlfriend all the way to the store where he bought Skittles and a tea. The phone was in his pocket and the earphone in his ear, Crump said.

“He said this man was watching him, so he put his hoodie on. He said he lost the man,” Martin’s friend said. “I asked Trayvon to run, and he said he was going to walk fast. I told him to run, but he said he was not going to run.”

Eventually, he would run, said the girl, thinking that he’d managed to escape. But suddenly the strange man was back, cornering Martin.

“Trayvon said, ‘What are you following me for,’ and the man said, ‘What are you doing here.’ Next thing I hear is somebody pushing, and somebody pushed Trayvon because the head set just fell. I called him again, and he didn’t answer the phone.”

The line went dead. Besides screams heard on 911 calls that night as Martin and Zimmerman scuffled, those were the last words he said.

But…police say the screams were the screams of George Zimmerman.

The Stand Your Ground Law in Sanford, allows anyone to “stand their ground,” even off their own property, if they feel threatened.

So why has the Sanford Police Chief stepped down? You don’t ‘step-down’ because you’re being called a ‘racist.’  And you don’t step-down when you have honestly analyzed evidence and are still investigating. And what can be done about the Black Panthers offering a Bounty. Is it legal? Bet it isn’t. Bet not a thing will be done about it.

We don’t know all the answers, and the eye-witness story has to bring legitimate questions to the fore. What the final answer to this murder investigation will show, I don’t know, but Police must be allowed to investigate without being intimidated.

UPDATE: The DailyMail is showing lots of Black Power fists in photos. 

UPDATE: MSNBC: Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum blamed for death of Trayvon Martin

13 Pingbacks/Trackbacks

  • So sad about the young man that died. If he brought it upon himself, as it’s now looking like, then there are going to be a lot of people with egg on their faces, including our irresponsible President.

  • I saw Zimmerman’s attorney on CNN last night while I was picking up take out. The attorney said they are not claiming that the Stand Your Ground Law is in effect in this case. Clearly he would lose on that since he was told to stay put and didn’t. His lawyer is saying it was clear cut case of self defense. Although there is nothing clear cut about this case.

    I know people that say even if Trayvon did attack him he was only protecting himself. Which could be true and sounds accurate to me because the guy was following him in a car, he could very well thought the man was a sex offender or something. We will never have an answer to that question since he is dead.

    I do believe that Zimmmerman needs to arrested and charged and let a jury decide. There is enough there to have reasonable cause.

  • Does self defense still apply if your not on your own property? It seems that this issue goes beyond the nieghborhood watch dog turned vigilante. How can he still be free?

    • Nick, I understand your position.. but now we have a witness that states, Zimmerman was walking back to his vehicle when Martin attacked him.. had Zim on the ground and was beating on him.. That’s when self defence and the law there, comes into play.. So why don’t we just wait till there’s a Grand Jury called to look at the facts, before we start jumping to conclusions. People, Nick, are innocent till proven guilty in this country. Lynchings are not the law of the land.

    • dtexas

      Nick…the Stand Your Ground law is specifically designed for cases where you are on or OFF your property. So that if you are attacked … say, at an ATM or in the park; you have the right to use deadly force to protect yourself.

      People need to take a step back and use common sense…BUT, the Panthers and racist blacks and their facilitators in government will turn this into race riots because of stupid comments that people are making before all the facts are released to the public and the Grand Jury has a chance to look over the real FACTS.

      It is never prudent to jump to conclusions…unless you are looking for a reason to get violent.

      The irresponsible Scum Bag in Chief is deliberately inciting this trend toward violence and should be arrested if it escalates…of course we already have plenty of evidence to arrest his sorry, skinny, lying butt..along with the gang of thugs he has protected for their crimes (Black Panthers).

  • David Lemon, just a conservative girl and Nick, I think the police were hesitant because of the witness, and what the 911 operator told them. There were numerous calls. If he was following Martin in a car, I didn’t see that, but did see that he told the Operator he was on his way to his car.

    Nick, I heard a judge today on Fox say that Stand Your Ground does not mean you have to be on your own property. It means if you are threatened, you can stand your ground. That was Judge Jeannine on Fox who is doing a program on this tonight on Fox.

    I don’t know what needs to be done, but I don’t like our Police so intimidated that the Chief steps down. He either had reason to not arrest at that time, or he didn’t have a good reason not too.

    The Black Panther Bounty is horrible!

    It’s terrible about this young man. I hope the right thing happens, and if Zimmerman deserves to arrested and prosecuted, he should be. If not, he should not.

    There may be other witnesses come forward. Seems a lot of people knew about this and were calling 911.

    • Let’s hope the pressure doesn’t get to much, that the other witnesses hold back or refuse to come forward. The intimidation is horrible. The liberals want their pound of flesh and then some. The thought that you could be threatened with death for anything concerning Justice, is despicable.

  • This whole thing is bs. It’s a lie. Look at Martin’s picture. It is a picture of him at 12. Why? To garner sympathy. Let the press show a recent picture. (No one can find one on the internet, they’ve been scrubbed off the net.) You will NOT see an angelic 12-year old, but a mean, gangbanger of 17.

    • You got it – the Black Panthers are just waiting for any opportunity like this to pounce, stirring up things even more. Let the situation be turned around,then no problem, huh! Racist to the bone on this call of which Obama is fanning the flame. He should stay the Hell out of it but NO, Obama just has to make matters worse by playing his race card as usual. Right up his alley. More and more people are seeing Obama for what he really is. A racist divider that hates whites and America. Just like Obama, all BS plus Lies that are full of holes. This trouble maker brat 17 year had no business in a gated community, let him come after Obama see what happens then. HORROS!! BTW my kid wouldn’t be out at night where he’s not supposed to be. So you SHUT UP, Missy!
      Zimmerman needs to get out of the country ASAP and not come back if he knows what’s good for him.

    David Lemon…get your facts straight. You are deliberately inciting a situation. Zimmerman was NOT told to stay put…I heard the tape and saw the transcript. All they said was “We don’t need you to do that…” when he was asked and said he was following the guy. I, a woman, have watched and followed strangers in my neighborhood; so what?

    Use your brain: Trayvon was a stranger in the neighborhood…there had been a lot of recent crime there…Zimmerman was part of the neighborhood Crime Watch and should be commended for that…anyone who notices a stranger walking through their neighborhood has every right to follow that person to see where they go and to ask questions about who they are and who they are visiting. I would want to see where he went and what he was up to if I did not recognize him and was waiting for the police to show up. All Trayvon had to do was say he was visiting relatives and even call his relatives or the police for help If HE WAS REALLY AFRAID. Further and obviously; this ‘kid’ is not the young child they are showing on the news ON PURPOSE. He copped an ‘attitude’ and escalated a situation unnecessarily. I cannot wait to hear the truth about this guy and what kind of trouble he’s been in. His lying family will have blood on their hands if anything else happens.

    This is so typical and I’ve NEVER seen blacks get up on their hind legs over injustice for a Hispanic or white. The Black Panthers are a filthy gang of criminals who need to be incarcerated permanently.

    He was suspended from school…this is not a regular, sweet kid. They blocked his records…why? hmm…sounds like his family is taking a bad lesson from the Current Rat in Chief who was illegally installed in our White House. And the Muslim Rat in Chief is only doing what he has done in the past…opening his stupid mouth with racist rhetoric and deliberately creating a deeper racist divide. He/they want whites and blacks to get violent with each other and anyone who buys into that is a fool…a pawn.

    Sounds like some Black Panthers need to be arrested for inciting violence, calling for illegal action and putting a ‘bounty’ on the head of a man who is legally free after police reviewed initial evidence.

    Further, it stands to reason that Zimmerman would not have attacked Martin…he had a gun and would have shot him from a distance if that was his intent. Martin had no right to attack Zimmerman simply for following him. Sounds like Martin had a race chip on his shoulder.

    Logic is all one needs in this case and all else is a deliberate racist attempt to commit violence.

    • dtexas.. never said Zimmerman was told “stay put”. Oh by the way.. Zimmerman is a Spanish mix.. So he’s a minority as well.. All I’m asking, is, let’s let the facts come out and then make a judgement.

    Muslim-gangsters run the Black Panthers. They will incite violence wherever they can. Our Muslim President (that’s HIS words on ABC)is disappointed there have been no real racial reasons for him to play the race card. Obama is in his re-election, photo-op and cheap opportunist mode. His comparison of a suspended teen who easily could outrun an older man or run to whoever he was visiting to Obama’s own daughters was disgraceful and insulting to the girls and his office. Obama is a low-life, like the kid.

    • Robert Greeley, yes the NBPP are Muslims. No one wants to talk about it. They are worse than thugs. They are criminals and issue death threats without fear of law enforcement. The past three years have been good for them under Eric Holder.

      I thought Obama’s racial comparison to his daughters was disgraceful. Thanks for coming by and joining the conversation. I appreciate it.

  • pam moore

    everyone is giving their own opinions.suppose it was your child .
    how would you feel. Are’nt you tired of the blood shed.
    do we need to go back into history from slavery to now?
    who started the hanging and wearing the hoods first?
    Are we as a people suppose to bury our heads in the sand?

    • Pam, you see Obama, and you see black President. I see Obama, and I see a President I disagree with. I disagreed with Clinton, and Carter.. did that make me a racist?
      How can you disregard the facts in this shooting. What are the facts? Don’t you think it would be wise to just wait and see what the Grand Jury will come up with?
      I hear the anger in you, but I hope you hear the cry for justice in my words. A person in this country is innocent till proven guilty. Do we lynch Zimmerman, because of your anger? Weren’t there enough lynchings in the past? Unjustified lynchings. We had the lynching of a sheriff in the late 1800s near where I live here in Montana. Was the sheriff innocent or guilty. We’ll never really know. He was lynched by a mob.
      How will you feel if after you lynch Zimmerman, you find out that he was totally innocent? I say lynch as a metaphor here.
      If Treyvon Martin was my son, I’d be crying for justice, loud and long, through my tears and broken heart, but I wouldn’t want an injustice committed in his name. Do you understand that?
      Pam,I’m sorry you can’t see, that a people can disagree and not be racist in the disagreement. I’m afraid you’ve listened to race agitators. Or maybe you have a life experience different than mine. Does that make me, a white guy living in nowhere Montana a racist? Don’t insult me please. I’m an artist, and I’ve refused to sell to people of all colors who express racist opinions about anyone. I have no place in my life for hate of a people because of their color. I haven’t it in me to be that way.
      You are free to express your angry opinion. I can take it. I have broad shoulders. Well actually a broad tummy as well.. 🙂 You can vent all you want, but please, cut back on the race comments to people you don’t really know.

    • Pam, I’d like to add one other thing. I’m not a fan of Mitt Romney. He’s a Mormon. I’m a Mormon as well. It angers me to no end the hateful things said about my church and the tons of miss information about our beliefs.
      My Great Great Grandfather, Alfred A. Harper, was one of the first members of the LDS faith. He was a Wheelright. He built many of the wagons the Mormons drove from Navoo Illinois in 1846 to the valley of the Great Salt Lake.
      Do you know anything about that? About the reasons for that mass migration?
      My ancestor, and members of my faith, were driven from Palmyra New York, by mobs. The Temple they built there was burned and torn down. Everywhere they went they were driven out by hooded mobs. Not just driven out but persecuted, tied to trees and flogged till their skin hung on their backs, exposing their ribs. Tared and feathered and ridden on rails.The gruesome pain of hot tar on bare skin. We Mormons know about hooded mobs and the injustice committed by them.
      Our leader, Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum were shot and killed in a Carthage Illinois Jail. They attempted to cut off Josephs Head. Several others, members of the church were in the same cell and were grossly wounded in that attack by a mob. Why? Because of their religion. There’s still so much unfounded hate for our religion today.
      In the dead of winter, a mob drove our people out of Navoo Illinois. They grabbed what they could and quickly packed into covered wagons and Hand Carts. Ill equipped, they crossed the frozen waters of the Mississippi River into Iowa.
      As they crossed Iowa, many children and grown ups died in the mud and muck of that state. One man, who lost all his family in that crossing wrote an amazing song, “Come Come Ye Saints”. Read the words of that song if you want to know courage.

      Come, come, ye saints, no toil nor labor fear;
      But with joy wend your way.
      Though hard to you this journey may appear,
      Grace shall be as your day.
      Tis better far for us to strive
      Our useless cares from us to drive;
      Do this, and joy your hearts will swell –
      All is well! All is well!

      Why should we mourn or think our lot is hard?
      ‘Tis not so; all is right.
      Why should we think to earn a great reward
      If we now shun the fight?
      Gird up your loins; fresh courage take.
      Our God will never us forsake;
      And soon we’ll have this tale to tell-
      All is well! All is well!

      We’ll find the place which God for us prepared,
      Far away, in the West,
      Where none shall come to hurt or make afraid;
      There the saints, will be blessed.
      We’ll make the air, with music ring,
      Shout praises to our God and King;
      Above the rest these words we’ll tell –
      All is well! All is well!

      And should we die before our journey’s through,
      Happy day! All is well!
      We then are free from toil and sorrow, too;
      With the just we shall dwell!
      But if our lives are spared again
      To see the Saints their rest obtain,
      Oh, how we’ll make this chorus swell-
      All is well! All is well!

      Again, I remind you… he wrote that on the trail, after the deaths of his wife and children.

      They suffered countless tragedies coming to a desert valley, they only knew through a book of Expedition, published by John C. Fremont, who had been their a few years before, with his scout, Kit Carson.
      Many men, woman and children died along the way, and are buried in unmarked graves from Council Bluffs to the Salt Lake Valley. Even after they had settled the Salt Lake Valley and had started their Temple, the US Government Sent an Army to put down a rumored Mormon uprising.. There was no uprising. We stopped them, in a canyon just over the boarder from Wyoming. No one was shot or killed. The Army saw how futile it would be to try and attack when the Mormons held the cliffs on both sides of Echo Canyon. They had no choice but to turn around.
      No one in my church, myself included, live on hatred of what was done to us in the past. We only honor those who died and suffered as heros and examples of incredible courage. We just looked forward to a future that was dependent on our courage and our ability to work. I could go on.. but I think you may now know where I come from, and why, being lumped into a group who you think we are.. breaks my heart. It doesn’t anger me. I do understand. It’s time to leave the past and remember it. But look to the future..

      Love each other and accept that we all just don’t always agree with how things should be done, then hope for the best for all of us.
      Not one of my ancestors asked for Government help or a handout. They would have been insulted. They knew that to achieve anything in life, it takes tenacious courage and work.
      Sorry Pam for loading you with all these words. I just felt an anger in you, I needed to address..

      • Calm down David. You think you’ve been persecuted? I’m Jewish. My people have been kicked out of almost every nation on Earth. (The US, Australia, New Zealand and Canada are the exceptions.) We have been subjected to murder, rape and theft by every thug. In this country we have been subjected to quotas in jobs and schools, having to work on our Sabbath or be fired, and being paid less than other people.

        We have been subjected to Pogroms overseas and here in the States. Yet we thrive.

        So don’t cry about what happened in the early 1800’s. No people on Earth have been through what mine have. Not even Blacks.

        BTW: There hasn’t been a people on this planet that hasn’t been enslaved one time in history or another.

        • Not crying .. and yes the Jews have suffered very much and paid a higher price in blood than any other group. I wasn’t telling the story to jerk a tear or sympathy. You missunderstood or didn’t read it all. I was just saying we can’t forget the past but we can’t dwell on it either. We need to proceed on.. into the future and cultivate those freedoms we’ve been given and not lose them.. you should understand that I’m sure.
          People make judgments on people never knowing their background and I was just trying to explain that to Pam.

    • Pam, here is that song as sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on Youtube

    • Man I know I’m being a bother.. Sorry Pam.. I misspoke about the history of “Come Come Ye Saints”.
      the lyrics were written in 1846 by Mormon poet William Clayton. Clayton wrote the hymn “All is Well”, the original title, on April 15, 1846, as his Mormon pioneer caravan rested at Locust Creek, Iowa, over 100 miles west of their origin city of Nauvoo, Illinois. Just prior to writing the lyrics, Clayton had received word that his wife Diantha had given birth to a healthy boy in Nauvoo.
      So what I had heard years ago, was wrong. Just wanted to update that. Still a powerful song..

    • I see OWS just showed up. How do I know? By the stench it has.

      For the record: If it had been my son, he never would have attacked Zimmerman. Instead of talking to the bimbo he was dating (no girl would be good enough for him) he would have called the cops.

      What I see is a couple of racist professional agitators getting ready to lead a riot. We have Jessie “Hymietown” Jackson and Al “Kill the Jew” Sharpton marching down the street inciting a riot. Sharpton is an old hand at it, having instigated the Williamsburg Pogrom.

      Now go back to your rape tent Pam. Your stench is not welcomed herew.
