Skip to comments.Trayvon Martin's ten day suspension
Posted on 03/25/2012 9:35:41 PM PDT by Kazan
A twitter message, allegedly sent by Trayvon's older brother, suggests Trayvon was suspended for assaulting a bus driver.
Trayvon Martin was on a suspension from school when he was tragically shot last February 26th. His school, Dr. Micheal M. Krop Senoir High School, has not given any details. His family has also evaded the issue. According to the Kansas City Star, the length of the suspension was ten days. This suggests a very serious offense.

ASSAUT..! Oh I’m Sooooo surprised, and from this ANGEL..!
Hey I’m sure that when WE were 17 we ALLLLLL assaulted the bus driver, riiiiight...?
Yeah Zimmerman dashed over and cruelly assaulted ANGEL TRAYVON..!
Obama’s son would have gold teef?
Documents released by Sanford, FL re: Trayvon Martin Investigation.
According to the report, he was 6’ even and 160 lbs, not HUGE, but certainly capable of doing serious damage to Zimmerman. It’s surely ironic that Zimmerman “stood his ground” on “Retreat View Circle”;)
It doesn’t really change the facts of the case. Martin did not go out looking for Zimmerman. Zimmerman went looking for Martin.
“I was yelling for someone to help me, but no one would help me”
Then what happened???
I wasn't there and neither were YOU!
Take a deep breath and stop hating. It blinds your judgment among other things.
He was not tragically shot. Not when you’re on top of an older guy outweighing him and pounding the sh1t out of him.
When Hollywood Stars and NBA players take up a cause, you know that event has reached the height of stupidity, and that the truth of the matter is quite far away.
“.......Its surely ironic that Zimmerman stood his ground on Retreat View Circle;)”
..Or, more accurately, he laid on his ground while being beaten.
HMMMincase you do not realize it is perfectly legal to walk in your neighborhood watching someone suspicious.He did not confront the kid he did watch him as he thought he was casing the houses since there had been break-ins lately.When he was in his car and Trayvon saw him on the phone he ran between homes and that is when he got out of his car to look to see where he went then he was attacked from behind by Trayvon.
Probably for handing out unlicensed Skittles.
That still goes back to the original altercation and who started what.
Being on top of someone during the course of a fight does not prove innocence, intent, cause or anything. But, merely a position during a fight.
The early report said 5 days for tardiness, that’s all. Now I see it’s the Skittles and iced tea. Series!
I’m a little confused about the “stand your ground” law..what proof is needed to claim it was self-defense?
I mean..say someone gets jumped from behind, & that person happens to be carrying a gun..that person can turn & shoot by claiming it was self-defense?
In this case, if Zimmerman was getting the crap kicked out of him, is that enough reason to shoot Martin? Would it be Zimmermans word alone that he feared for his life & stand your ground applies?
I nominate you to be the guy most likely to catch on last.
There’s no hating on my part. Just commenting on the story as I understand it.
But there is a whole bunch of assumption of Trayvon’s guilt, just simply because he’s black and tall going on though.
If this goes to trial, the defense would use this which goes to the violent nature of Trayvon Martin. The government, if they prosecute this case against Zimmermann, have a slam-dunk losing case. It’s no wonder that the police and the local DA are not pursuing this and are going to let some grand jury decide.
The politicizing of this unfortunate event is all for show because Obama and the Demo-party need villain(s) to energize their lackadaisical base to get to the voter polls this November. That’s the bottom line.
Lanie, I would suspend my own kids for 30 days for bringing home junk food like Skittles. Unfortunately, I was at the time outvoted by my current ex. The consequences are felt to this day,
Patience is a virtue.
There is one way to end a conversation on these threads Steel.
Do you have any proof Zimmerman committed a crime?
Conversation over :)
That does not give Martin the right to assault Zimmerman. Clearly Zimmerman would have been better off not following Martin but Martin was not authorized to assault Zimmerman more than Zimmerman was not authorized to follow Martin.
See what happens when you die?
You change from a cute 12 year old to a 17 year old with a tat.
As I said, most of us, if we were in Martin’s place might have done the same thing under the same circumstances.
As I also said, if Zimmerman had made contact with Martin, from a safe distance, it’s unlikely any of this would have taken place.
Gold! Check out the cost of gold grill work, and the name of the model provided, above. Looks from the photo like Tray’s got about 8 gold teeth. He had to be selling pot. What high school kid could afford that?
What is it about black guys and gold teeth?
Writer Ken Kesey wrote in his book `The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test’ about a black guy proudly showing off his gold tooth.
Kesey had a gold tooth with a diamond chip in it, and showed it to him.
The black guy left, sad and beaten.
That was wrong of me. I shouldnt have done that. I outniggered him.
Hey, don’t zot me Mod—I didn’t write it! The hippie did.
No if he had asked Zimmerman why he was following him and cleared things up, instead of beating on him this would have gone differently. We have a pool in our Association that gets used by people not authorized. I have asked kids I don’t recognize which home they live in.
The basic idea is that some states require a person to retreat from threats, even in their own homes in some cases. Self-defense, under these laws, can only be claimed if escape is impossible. "Stand Your Ground" laws make it explicit that retreat is not legally required. A law-abiding citizen can simply stand their ground and if someone insists on attacking them then force may be used for self-defense.
Tom Wolf was the author, but you’re right about Kesey’s response to the incident.
Is someone seriously (seriesly) trying to claim that this kid was suspended for being tardy? Good grief, they must think we are all idiots.
With us picking up the tab, I would guess platinum.
if Zimmerman was getting the crap kicked out of him, is that enough reason to shoot Martin? Would it be Zimmermans word alone that he feared for his life & stand your ground applies?
No, Zimmermann has a witness - Witness: Trayvon Martin attacked Zimmerman before shooting
To Obama and his allies like Al Sharpton, the prosecution is not the real objective. Their real objective is getting the "positive effects" from the propaganda.
You see a heavy man following you, and you think it’s a distinct possibility that he may be armed and coming for you, as he has been following you for no discernable reason.
Talking is the solution there, my friend.
I’ll give a nice eulogy for you, if you let me know when your funeral will be.
There's a whole bunch of assumption of Trayvon's innocence just simply because he's black, and Zman isn't.
The ENEMEDIA is intentionally stirring race hate with their manipulation of this tragedy. Don't get caught up in it.
how does a 17 year old get a tat? I thought you had to be 18?
“Bbbut, he was an honor student!”
Again it is hardly a tragedy.
A tragedy is losing your life defending your home from an asshole SWAT team that got the wrong houze because it didn’t do a proper Intel job.
We know that Trayvon Martin was on top of George Zimmerman, beating him, while Zimmerman was yelling for help. This is supported by witness testimony and physical evidence. Unless you can show that such actions were an appropriate response to something Zimmerman did, then Martins' actions are, by definition, criminal.
Trayvon was certainly a friendly lad
That’s right, my mistake. This whole mess reminds me of `One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ so maybe I was thinking of that book.
As I also said, if Zimmerman had made contact with Martin, from a safe distance, its unlikely any of this would have taken place.
You have been spewing commie crap for days. At first you had lots of support. Now the pro-Trayvon numbers are dwindling here on FR. My prediction is that you will be among the last, if not the very last, to figure out the truth. At that point you will simply stop posting on the Trayvon threads. You will never admit that you gulped down the commie Kool-Aid.
That was the early report. Tardiness.
or you just got suspended for school for 10 days, got sent to Dads home and are pissed off at the world and found someone to take it out on. My scenario is as likely as yours.
I’m not personally paying attention to the media, as my main source of information on this topic is Free Republic and I don’t watch tv.
I just don’t see it as many of you do.
I’m in agreement that Martin should not have done it, but don’t believe most of us would have done any differently under the circumstances. If it had been many of the Freepers being followed, Zimmerman might have eaten a bullet, due to his stupidity.
See. This is where you're so full of shit. So then you're saying that Zimmerman did shoot Martin because he was black? Actually, I don't give a rat's ass what you say anymore. You make shit up and then deflect when called out on it. You're nothing more than a freaking troll. Go join your circle jerk brothers over at the DU.
Seriously, how do we know that the knocks to Zimmerman’s noggin by Martin didn’t disorient him? If Zimmerman had not been ambushed and thumped my guess is he would have reacted differently.
I don’t personally care if Im the last one to hold my position, I will hold my position.
commie crap has to do with economics and politics, not crime.
Try another term.
