    For the first time since that fateful night on February 26, the father of a neighborhood watch volunteer who shot and killed an unarmed teenager sat down for a television interview.

The New Black Panther Party came back to Sanford with a vengeance, they shouted "black power" and "Justice for Trayvon," rallying at the memorial near the scene where Trayvon martin was shot and killed, they didn't hold back their anger.

"It's time for us as black men, to take justice in our own hands," said Mikhail Muhammad of the New Black Panther Party.

The panthers say they plan to recruit 10,000 men to search for George Zimmerman and arrest him.

"We want to search, mobilize, organize for the capture of George Zimmerman and we will bring him to justice," said Muhammad.

Their message was offensive and violent at times.

"You kill mine, God D***it, I've got to kill yours," said Muhammad.

They cursed and lashed out at Zimmerman, Sanford Police and even the special prosecutor Angela Corey.

"She's a liar and murderer right along with the rest of them, so we're not pleased with Angela Corley's appointment," Muhammad said.

As the tension reached a fever pitch, Sanford police officers came in to control the crowd.

"They want to go out here and do their thing that's fine, I just want make sure everyone is safe and not in the street," said an unidentified Sanford Police Officer.

Once the police arrived, the panthers seized the opportunity to call them out.

"We're going to make you do your job, if you had that same kind of concern, Trayvon would be living today," Muhammad said.

Meanwhile in Orange County, there was a different message promoting peace.

"Keep the peace, keep the peace, cause justice will prevail," said Pastor Stovello Stovall of the God is Able Church in Orlando.

Pastor Stovall marched with church members asking others not to fight violence with violence.

"The main thing I want these young people to know that's on the outside, of all these churches and got so much anger built up inside them, keep the peace," Stovall said.

The New Black Panther Party also says they plan to protest at Sanford City Hall on Monday.

The City of Sanford released the following statement in reaction to the statements made by the New Black Panther Party "The City of Sanford is calling for calm in the wake of an appeal from the New Black Panther Party."
