TTAG has reported various threats against the life of George Zimmerman, the man accused of Second Degree murder in the case of Trayvon Martin. Specifically the New Black Panthers’ bounty on Zimmerman’s head and the appearance of a Twitter account named “@killZimmerman.” Now that the Florida shooter is out on bail, a Twitter lynch mob has formed. twitchy.com has a partial list and it’s not pretty. The U.S. Justice Department should pursue the people who’ve made these terroristic threats. Whether or not Twitter should close the accounts is another matter. I say yes. What say you?
[ed: The above tweet from Jenn Taylor at twitchy.com is quoting one of a host of threats by others against George Zimmerman. She wasn’t threatening GZ. Just to be clear.]
