Najee Muhammad, a member of the New Black Liberation Militia, announced Thursday that members of the group plan to make a citizen’s arrest on the neighborhood watch leader who admitted to fatally shooting unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin. The Militia plans to take George Zimmerman in to custody and had him over to federal authorities because "local police haven’t acted," the Associated Press reports.
The leader of the Atlanta, Georgia group says they’ll travel to Florida this week to attempt a citizen’s arrest on Zimmerman.
According to their website, the New Black Liberation Institute is a multi-faith, spiritual, cultural, scientific, and political instructional institution "under the leadership of Prince Min. Najee Shaka Muhammad The Top Student of Dr.Khallid Abdul Muhammad!"
An attorney for slain 17-year-old’s family said they disagreed with actions such as what the militia proposed.
