New Black Panthers offer bounty for teen-killer’s capture
‘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 Saturday.
‘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 5,000 black men to capture George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin last month…’
Cops’ New Account of Trayvon Martin’s Killing
Should we trust it? We shouldn’t as long as they rely on leaks and unnamed witnesses
‘”With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who eventually shot and killed the unarmed 17-year-old, then Trayvon climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, leaving him bloody and battered, authorities have revealed to the Orlando Sentinel.”
‘Much of this “has been corroborated by witnesses,” the paper says. Also, “One eyewitness has said he saw the teenager on top of Zimmerman.”

The girlfriend says she heard Martin ask a man, “What are you following me for,” and that the man answered, “What are you doing here?” Then she heard Martin pushed to the ground…’
New Agers Start Doomsday Dodge

‘A rapidly increasing stream of New Age believers – or esoterics, as locals call them – have descended in their camper van-loads on the usually picturesque and tranquil Pyrenean village of Bugarach. They believe that when apocalypse strikes on 21 December this year, the aliens waiting in their spacecraft inside Pic de Bugarach will save all the humans near by and beam them off to the next age…’
Death Certificate Required of BofA Borrower!?
Bank of America claimed to “need” a Death Certificate of a living borrower to complete his loan modification.
At first this borrower gave Bank of America the benefit of the doubt, thinking that the request was surely a mistake.
Then they did it again, and further requested a statement of death benefits as well.
Apparently, that’s their sick way of saying that he will die before they’ll modify his loan.
