DOJ and the New Black Panthers

Should the DOJ be investigating and prosecuting the New black panthers and others that made threats against George Zimmerman?

I don't condone what they are doing at all. They are threatening Zimmerman and while I think the man is as guilty as sin he is still innocent until proven guilty. They are only encouraging the same vigilante justice that I feel Zimmerman was trying to do.

I think they should be absolutely investigated and charged if found with cause to do so. What they are doing has incited so much undue anger and frustration down here (and elsewhere) that these 'bounties' are making things much worse.

I was stating that because I didn't want anyone to be confused with me saying I was upset with the Black Panthers to think I was agreeing with Zimmerman's actions. I think he's guilty but I stand by anyone being "innocent" until proven guilty.
