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.
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.
