George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old neighborhood watchman who shot and killed Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla., has been charged with second-degree murder in the 17-year-old's death. Zimmerman has been transferred to Seminole County jail, according to news reports, and is being held without bail.


I found it interesting last evening watching the special prosecutor announce this.  She took 5 minutes before making the statement to thank this person and that office, etc.

I thought I might have been watching a rerun of the Oscar awards.....

And no statement or question (before I turned the channel about 20 minutes later) concerning the $10k bounty on Zimmerman's head by the Black Panthers.  Now his whereabouts is known (Seminol county jail) he may just be a dead man and never come to trial.

It is the New Black Panther Party not the Black Panthers.
The reward was for his capture, since he is in jail, doesn’t look as though anyone will get it.

No it was not just for his arrest:
Quote
New Black Panthers member, Mikhail Muhammad, didn't hesitate to say to the nation at large that the monetary promise he and his group were making for the unauthorized (dead or alive) apprehension of Zimmerman was just "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth," mentality, as reported by NPR at the end of March.

It seems they would prefer he was dead.  From the sound of it they want to trigger a race war here in the US.  So I think the bounty still stands.
