Reports of suspensions paint more complicated picture of Trayvon Martin
South Florida Sun Sentinel ^ | 03/26/12 | Frances Robles

Posted on 03/26/2012 8:24:24 PM PDT by festusbanjo

SANFORD — Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin was suspended from school in October in an incident in which he was found in possession of women’s jewelry and a screwdriver that a schools security staffer described as a “burglary tool,” The Miami Herald has learned. Trayvon, who claimed that an unnamed friend had given him the jewelry, was not disciplined because of the discovery, but was instead suspended for graffiti, according to a Miami-Dade Schools Police report obtained by The Miami Herald....

What your seeing here is your typical case of someone protecting themselves from a thug. This is nothing new, but the media wants Obama to win so badly that they will do ANYTHING to get him re-elected(Even if that involves setting the entire country on fire). This is just like Richard Jewel and Duke LaCrosse all mixed into one

Ah yes, just as if he was little barry bastard’s son. How disgusting this must seem to reasonable black people.

The media is certainly not reporting that George Zimmerman was an alter boy. Nope, no positive portrayals of George are allowed. Just white-washing over Martin’s black gangsta ways.

Somehow, “Trayvon the choirboy becoming a common thug by the hour” didn’t seem like an MSM headline. Actual headline, “Reports of suspensions paint more complicated picture of Trayvon Martin” is more what I expected.

The reasonable ones are one - one, and they will still vote for him cuzz “he Black”, its not the man, but, the color. I have heard some down on him for being muslim but at the end of the day, “he black”.
I might be wrong, but, I believe the polls are still saying that.

The case is several weeks old and when it reached us last week, it should have been properly researched and presented. Which would have prevented all the race riots and posturing by race hustlers. The National Enquirer would have done it. The laying off, J-school staffed MSM? Forget it, comrade!

This entire thing is astounding,especially seeing the two professional race pimps involved.

Another lawyer for the family........ (In addition of one already named in the article)

How many lawyers does this family have and who's paying for them? Why do they need a lawyer at all? Their son is unfortunately dead. If someone is to be prosecuted, they are the ones in need of a lawyer.

The only reason I can think of is they are already anticipating a law suit or more likely many law suits, against the city, the police, the Home Owner's association etc. and just for more racial agitation.

I'll say it again, if I ever find myself being pummeled by some young thug and I have a gun, he will be a dead young thug, despite whatever the Je$$ie Jack$on$ and Al $harpton$ of the world may think.

Moral of the story? DON'T jump someone ELSE'S fence (gated community) and trespass. DON'T assume you have a right not to be followed by the neighborhood watchman. And MOST IMPORTANTLY, NEVER beat upon someone carrying a gun!

I try not to be the grammar police but this is the third or fourth time recently I have seen "more clear." Perhaps if I speak up fewer people will be contaminated. It is clear, clearer, and clearest. It is not clear, more clear or most clear.

They are presenting this exactly the way they intend. Obama and his lacky media are ginning up unrest between the races prior to the election. If necessary, riots will break out, martial law will be declared and the election will be cancelled.

Zimmerman was an alter boy growing up. He’s also a Democrat / Obama supporter.

"THESE PEOPLE are praying for widespread race riots. "

As someone who saw the Rodney King riots up close and personal, there is more truth in what you say than you might be aware of. The smiles on the faces of the looters said it all.

During the first Rodney King trial after the case was submitted to the jury my secretary came to me and asked what I thought was going to happen. I told her that the cops would be acquitted and that there would be a race riot. A couple of days later, the verdict came in and the riots started.

For some reason black people think that looting stores in their neighborhoods is a way to get back at "THE MAN". Interestingly "THE MAN" right now happens to be a black man (Actually he's an East African Arab Mulatto who pretends to be black).

I predict some kind of summer riots either over this issue or some other contrived issue and if Obama is not re-elected, then I predict major riots in every major city in the US.

Zimmerman is cast as the “white man” in this little drama — yet, he’s half Latino. (I.e. as much Latino, as BHO is black.) If a “white man” had shot Zimmerman — Zimmerman would certainly have been given the role of oppressed Latino.

Clear doesn't require and adjective.

Rule 1. When correcting people's grammar, make sure you use correct grammar.

Actually "more clear" is a correct form of the comparative depending on the sentence structure and it's usage. When I said that Mind-numbed Robot could "not be more clear than that", then the usage in that sentence was perfectly acceptable grammar. Since there is no grammatical substitute for "less clear" than "less clear" then "more clear" is clearly acceptable grammar.

From a website discussing this issue:

Comparatives in English are all replacements for the standard "more". There are very few occasions when a descriptive adjective cannot use the "more" form (one of which is when you are already using a comparative, i.e. something can't be "more smaller").
However, more common in usage is to use the -er form, "clearer". Of course, when modifying a verb, the adverb form must be used ,"more clearly".
"Can I make the meaning clearer?" = "Can I make the meaning more clear?"

So have I made my point clear, or should I try to make my point even more clear?

Without adjectives is the clearest way it can be.
