New Black Panther Party leader arrested

From the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

Hashim Nzinga, 49, recently announced on CNN that  his group was offering a $10,000 reward for the capture  of George Zimmerman, the man who fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla. CNN identified Nzinga as the chief of staff of the New Black Panther Party.

According to a DeKalb arrest warrant, Nzinga was in possession of an FN Herstal 5.7 x 28 handgun, which investigators said he pawned at a shop on Rockbridge Road. That alleged transaction would be illegal due to Nzinga’s convictions last month for felony deposit account fraud in Gwinnett County, the DeKalb Sheriff’s Office said.

Nzinga was arrested by members of the fugitive squad at a probation office in Lawrenceville and transported to DeKalb County Jail.

Also a video from CNN:

A member of the New Black Panthers believes in ‘an eye for an eye’ even if Trayvon Martin’s family doesn’t. The group is offering a $10,000 reward for the capture of George Zimmerman.

In a heated interview, Anderson Cooper questions their leader, Mikhail Muhammad, about their motives and the fact that the Martin family does not like or approve of their words and actions.
