Rep Allen West “Vehemently condemns the bounty poster from the New Black Panthers”

Facebook post by Congressman Allen West on Wednesday, March 28, 2012

“I vehemently condemn the bounty poster emanating from the New Black Panther Party putting a $10,000 ransom up for the capture of George Zimmerman and call upon the US Department of Justice to prosecute their actions, clearly a hate crime. We have seen this type of abhorrent behavior from this group previously in 2008 as part of a voter intimidation action, it is reprehensible.  To openly solicit for the death of an American citizen, with reward, is not in keeping with the laws of due process which governs this Constitutional Republic. However, this is to be expected when irrational voices dominate our public dialogue and are fueled by an ideological driven media. I am concerned that that the tragic death of Trayvon Martin is being hijacked by malcontents.”

  3. Dear Congressman, Lieutenant Colonel, Allen West,

    I thank you for attempting to bring reason to the table on this nightmare our nation is being over-run by. I hope wiser men and women will remember who WE ARE. We are a nation of laws, and the RIGHT of DUE PROCESS is sacred. We walk away from this, and EVERYTHING will fall apart. Nothing, No one, and No where will be safe or protected for ANYONE. We A L L stand to lose our national birthright. Wake up America, do not play fast and loose with our civil rights. EVERYONE HAS THE PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. That is the law. Allowing emotions to overcloud our judgement, serves no one in the end, and horrifyingly could bring our nation to an end.
