Yesterday, the New Black Liberation Militia announced that they will attempt a citizen’s arrest of George Zimmerman, the white neighborhood watch captain, who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Members of a self-described black militia group will attempt a citizen’s arrest on a white neighborhood watch leader who has admitted to fatally shooting an unarmed African-American teen in an Orlando suburb, but has not been charged, a leader of the group said Thursday.

Members of The New Black Liberation Militia plan next week to take 28-year-old George Zimmerman to federal authorities since local police haven’t acted, said Najee Muhammad, a leader of the militia group.

“We’ll find him. We’ve got his mug shot and everything,” Muhammad said.

WHAT, a citizen’s arrest NEXT WEEK?!? At best, this is a symbolic gesture intended to raise awareness of the injustice of the case. At worst–and that is what the evidence seems to point to–this is a shameful attempt at peacocking for the purposes of advancing the agenda of the New Black Liberation Militia. This is a despicable publicity stunt that uses the tragedy of this case as an opportunity to take advantage of increasing the membership and public profile of their group.

In the video below, I explain the real deal behind the group’s decision to attempt a citizen’s arrest.
