JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police arrested the leader of the New Black Panther Party in Jacksonville after getting a call to investigate a claim of false imprisonment.

Police say Mikhail Muhammad refused to allow officers to remove his wife's belongings from the couple's home on North Myrtle Avenue.

Muhammad's wife told police she wanted to leave him, and that she asked officers to gather her things from the home because she was afraid to go inside.

Police say Muhammad told officers they could not enter the home to get his wife's personal belongings.  Officers advised him that they had his wife's permission and that he would be arrested if he refused.

Officers took Muhammad into custody and read his Miranda rights, which he said he didn't understand, according to the police report.

Muhammad faces a charge of resisting an officer without violence to his or her person, a misdemeanor.

This 'LEADER' "didn't understand his Miranda Rights?" I bet he would understand them loud and clear if he was PAID TO. What a loser. Read my next 2 comments. I love this man for saying the truth out loud.

Part 1, 'They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English. I can't even talk the way these people talk: Why you ain't, Where you is, What he drive, Where he stay, Where he work, Who you be... And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father talk. Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living. People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around. The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal. These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids. $500 sneakers for what? And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics? I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit. Where were you when he was 2? Where were you when he was 12? Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol? And where is the father? Or who is his father? People putting their clothes on backward: Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong? People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something? Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body? What part of Africa did this come from?? We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa ..... I say this all of the time. It would be like white people saying they are European-American. That is totally stupid.

Part 2, I was born here, and so were my parents and grand parents and, very likely my great grandparents. I don't have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have to Germany , Scotland , England , Ireland , or the Netherlands . The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards to Africa . So stop, already! ! ! With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap ......... And all of them are in jail. Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem. We have got to take the neighborhood back. People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands' -- or men or whatever you call them now. We have millionaire football players who cannot read. We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job. Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us. We have to start holding each other to a higher standard. We cannot blame the white people any longer. WELL SAID, DR. BILL COSBY, It’s NOT about color, It’s about BEHAVIOR!!!
