Neo-Nazis patrolling streets of Sanford, Fla., .....

.........where Trayvon Martin was shot and killed.

The Trayvon Martin case is getting even more heated as armed neo-Nazis are reportedly patrolling the streets of Sanford, Fla.-where the black, unarmed teen was shot and killed.

A representative for the Detroit-based National Socialist movement told the Miami New Times that his group of roughly 10 to 20 volunteers aren't there to start trouble, but are prepared to protect the "white citizens in the area" in the event of race riots.

"Whenever there is one of these racially charged events, Al Sharpton goes wherever blacks need him," Jeff Schoep of the National Socialist Movement told the news organization. "We do similar things. We are a white civil rights organization…We are not the type of white people who are going to be walked all over."

Sanford authorities said ealier this week that they have a plan in place in case violence erupts, and they have met with emergency management teams and the federal Department of Justice.

Since Martin was killed on Feb. 26 by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, tensions have been running high. The shooting has sparked massive protests across the country, in addition to a furor over race and justice.

Zimmerman claimed he fired in self-defense after Martin attacked him. He has not been arrested or charged and has kept out of the public eye since the incident.

A new Gallup/USA poll shows American are fiercely divided by race in their opinion of the controversial shooting. Most black Americans-73%--think Zimmerman would have been arrested if Martin had been white. Meanwhile, just 33% of non-Hispanic white people said the same thing.

Schoep pointed to the $10,000 bounty put on Zimmerman by the New Black Panther Party for a citizen's as proof there could be racial violence. He insisted he wasn't taking sides on the incident and was there to adding Zimmerman's "half Hispanic or Cuban or something. He certainly doesn't look white to me."
