Rick Scott responds to New Black Panther Party "bounty" on Trayvon Martin's shooter

Another day, another twist in the Trayvon Martin case.

There's now a potentially anti-white group called the "New Black Panther Party," which is calling for the vigilante-style arrest of alleged vigilante-style shooter George Zimmerman. And, in response, Gov. Rick Scott has issued this written statement:

"We have taken steps to ensure that the investigation into the tragic death of Trayvon Martin is fair, measured and thorough.  Justice is ill served when there is a rush to judgment.  We are a nation of laws and we must let the legal system work.  Talk of bounties and retribution has no place in this dialogue, and they compound tragedy with tragedy."

Holder says the Black Panther voter intimidation was, "a made up controversy"! http://bit.ly/hazKyK For a video reminder of that case: http://bit.ly/ecAUVS http://fxn.ws/aM69yk

Highlights from 20 Years of Surveying Crime Victims https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/bjs/144525.pdf

According to the latest US Department of Justice survey of crime victims, more than 6.6 million violent crimes (murder, rape, assault androbbery) are committed in the US each year, of which about 20 per cent,or 1.3 million, are inter-racial crimes.

Most victims of race crime - about 90 per cent - are white, according to the survey "Highlights
from 20 Years of Surveying Crime Victims", published in 1993. Almost 1 million white Americans were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by black Americans in 1992, compared with about 132,000 blacks who were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by whites, according to the same survey.

Blacks thus committed 7.5 times more violent inter-racial crimes than whites even though the black population is only one-seventh the size of the white population. When these figures are adjusted on a per capita basis, they reveal an extraordinary disparity: blacks are committing more than 50 times the number of violent racial crimes of whites.

You can post all the facts and figures you like. No matter what you say or do, you will be wrong and labeled as a racist. You can't talk calmly to a bunch of "people" who hear what they want to hear and shout you down when you try to have an open dialogue with them.

That may be the first thing the Gov has ever said that I agree with. Uh oh...Im headin to church to get right for the Rapture.

Saw the same thing way up here in Minnesota. Walked by a polling place (2008 election) that had some intimidating thugs wearing jackets and berets (don't know if it Panthers or local look-alikes). Kept walking because I wasn't voting Obama and didn't want them getting in my face.

Doesn't compare with the centuries of white on black crime that has greatly contributed to Where we are now. A nation of whites who think blacks should be grateful. Funny how perception rules. Grateful? You see how grateful, right?

We have a nation of selective thinkers who believe in a fantasy history. What is amazing is that the majority of people don't even realize that the nation here is now in many ways a third world country that hides behind its holidays and front doors. The biggest hypocrisy is right here. A country of people who repeatedly get fooled into voting against their own interest. 2010 election ring any bells. Betcha wish you could have that one back, huh? Call em like I see em. Not how others say I should. 3rd🗽

What the hell is going on? Black Panther Party? REALLY?! Instead of spending $10,000 on Zimmermanm, why don't they donate it to a black community, or send it to the family of Trayvon for his funeral.

The Black Panther Party is nothing more then a glorified Gang. They need to know that white people have a lot of guns incase they wanted to start a revelution. I hope it never comes to that but they need to shut up and get a real job. Contibute to society pay taxes and not have babies out of wedlock. Sorry this isnt politically correct its just the truth.

Please make sure to include the word "New" in front of Black Panther Party when discussing this group. The real BPP has this to say about these idiots: http://www.blackpanther.org/FAQs.html

Additionally, the NBPP is considered a hate group by the following organizations:
Southern Poverty Law Center:
http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/intelligence-files/new-black-panther-party
Anti-Defamation League:
http://www.adl.org/main_Extremism/new_black_panther_party.htm

Very important not to think these two VERY different groups with VERY different goals are one and the same. Bobby Seale and the real (and only) BPP have repeatedly condemned the NBPP for their hatred and bigotry.
