The teen was suspended from school three times He was on suspension when he was shot in February, after officials caught him with a 'marijuana pipe' and a baggie with drug residue Trayvon was kicked out of school in October for graffiti after he was allegedly caught with a 'burglary tool' and a bag full of women's jewelry Officials also suspended him once for skipping school and tardiness Tearful parents say their son is now the victim of a smear campaign New poll shows 73 percent of Americans think Zimmerman should be arrested

Florida teenager Trayvon Martin was allegedly suspended from school after security officers found what they described as a 'burglary tool' and women’s jewellery in his backpack. The new claims, revealed in a leaked school report, paint a different picture of a troubled teenager who was kicked out of school a total of three times. The Miami Herald claims that in October, he was caught with a 'burglary tool' - a flathead screwdriver - and 12 pieces of women's jewellery. Martin insisted that they did not belong to him.

Earlier, he had been suspended for skipping school and showing up late to class. And most recently, in February, he was suspended again when officials found a 'marijuana pipe' and an empty baggie with traces of marijuana.

As Usual have to go to the Brit press to get a real story and not the Democrat propaganda. Suprise...Trayvon wasn't the angel the press is making him out to be. But the media/libs aren't going to let some stubborn facts get in the way of a good story.

This story has been out there for a couple of days, but not in the newspapers or the TV reports on the subject. It does not fit the story line of the Libs, so it is not in print or TV. It has been on the web first, as usual.

a tool?

I guess the bag of women’s jewelry wasn’t suspicious at all?

The more I hear about Treyvon Martin, the more I believe, far from being prosecuted, Zimmerman should be given a good citizenship medal.

If true, must perhaps ... Zimmerman’s instincts about Martin were 100% right on.

Not accusing anyone of anything.

But that seems like a real, real important detail if true.

Isn't that more like a reward than a punishment, considering the offense....

There is a lot of digging on the background of both principals in this case. I wish there was this much zeal about digging into Ø’s background.

Nonsense!

He was skipping along with his Skittles and Ice Tea and Bambi the Deer, and Zimmerman just took them both down in a hail of automatic gunfire from his Gatling Gun that he drove around on!

I agree.Thoroughly investigate the background of both and make *everything* public.If one has a "dirty" background and the other one doesn't then one can reasonably develop a hunch regarding who's at fault.If they *both* have dirty,or clean,backgrounds then it makes it tougher to decide what happened.

As for Osama Obama...if Bill Ayers..Jerimiah Wright...Van Jones,etc weren't explored in '08 (thanks a bunch,Mr McLame!) they'll never be explored.

Just saw a report on CNN International where a friend of Zimmermann, Joe Oliver (who is African-American) said the gun went off when the two struggled. He didn’t say how the gun became exposed in the struggle.

I don’t understand what anyone gains by trying to make the poor kid look like a criminal. If he had a screwdriver or an empty weed bag at one time, or even with him, it doesn’t matter. He wasn’t doing anything criminal Zimmerman chased him down. He wasn’t fleeing a liquor store robbery. He wasn’t climbing out of someone’s window. He wasn’t stabbing puppies.

This isn’t a political issue. It isn’t a left-right issue. A paranoid, overzealous neighborhood watch guy who saw criminality everywhere (see his 40 plus 9-11 calls since January 2011 for evidence) chased down a teenager walking back from the store, some sort of confrontation occured (what would you do if you were chased down by a gun toting stranger?) and the kid was killed. This confrontation did not need to happen, and it was Zimmerman who instigated it. He should be held accountable, at least for manslaughter. (by accountable, I mean tried in a court of law)

When a kid dies needlessly because of you, you should have to answer for it.

And according to the report: Trayvon investigated by the Miami-Dade police - the jewelry was not found to be stolen. The “burglary tool” was nothing more than a screwdriver.

At the heart of this maelstrom — in which the thorny issues of race and justice have surfaced as themes — is a boy who dreamed of becoming a pilot and liked to work with his hands.

After taking an airplane ride two years ago, Trayvon decided he wanted to learn to fly, his uncle Ronald Fulton said. The teen attended a Miami aviation school part time and was studying to be an engineer, a path to realizing his ambition, Fulton said.

Math was Trayvon’s favorite subject.

He liked to tinker, and he was good with his hands. He once took apart and repaired a broken scooter, Fulton said, and he liked to construct model cars and airplanes and draw pictures of things he wanted to build.

“He was extremely creative,” said Michelle Kypriss, Trayvon’s English teacher at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School in Miami. “He just loved building things. He really was intrigued by how things worked.”

She described Trayvon, a junior, as an A and B student who majored in cheerfulness.

His uncle said Trayvon was still a typical kid who loved sports, music and was just feeling the first flush of youth. “He was trying to start driving. He was just finding out about girls.”

Trayvon was close to his 21-year-old brother Jahvaris, also of Miami, and assisted his uncle, a quadriplegic, on outings to University of Miami basketball games.

“He used to help me,” Fulton said, voice breaking.

Trayvon — who was known as “Tray” or “Slimm” — played youth football during his early teens and helped his father coach Little League baseball, said Fulton, whose sister, Sybrina Fulton, is Trayvon’s mother.

It sounded to me like in the 911 call from the neighbor that there were two gunshots. Maybe one went stray during the struggle and the other found its mark.

I pronounce Trayvon innocent on the “burglary tool” and jewelry charge. I also have women’s jewelry and these burglary tools (AKA screwdriver set from Walmart) in my home.

Among many Tweets, the Wagist claims, is a message from his cousin implying that Trayvon attacked a bus driver. 'Yu ain't tell me yu swung on a bus driver,' a user Tweeted to Travyon's alleged account five days before he was killed.

Seems like the punk had a habit of taking swings at authority figures.

Duh. “The jewelry didn’t belong to him”! It belonged to people who he stole it from, Daily Mail!

I’m wondering if the jewelry is where the weird allegations of homosexuality surfaced.

I have no idea why he had the jewelry and screwdriver, but women’s jewelry in your pack at school?

And yeah, a screwdriver is an effective burglary tool against simple spring loaded door locks, also to pry open some windows.

IF Trayvon used/sold drugs, robbed houses, dressed and talked gangsta, - were Zimmerman’s instincts that far off?

Was Trayvon such a model kid that he might not have jumped on Zimmerman?

The whole thing is a tragedy, but an “attack on blacks”? No.

If Trayvon got suspended for a marijuana pipe and baggie ...

Where did his father come up with a story that it was for “being in an unauthorized area” at school?

Same parents who announced loudly their son was shot just because of his color.

Just maybe Trayon also was caught in somebody’s office and the father mixed up the incidents?

Joe Oliver is a wonderful friend to have. It speaks well of Zimmerman that they are pals. He has been amazingly calm and articulate in his defense of Z. He even went on that schmuck Chris Matthews’ show last night and he was almost (I say almost) treated with respect.

He’s a good-looking guy. I wonder if Chris got a thrill.

There's alot of lies out there. One of his school teachers said he was suspended for being tardy!

Has anyone heard that the police report was leaked by a whistle blower? I heard that this morning on some news show but haven't heard it corroborated.

Information is sure not falling in line with what the race hustlers are preaching about a murdered innocent yute, by some racist white guy. This sure makes me wonder about what all Trayvon was up to, besides going to the store for skittles and ice tea. Perhaps went out to get high and retrieve munchies for later? Perhaps casing houses for burglary in the area of his new digs? Perhaps Mr. Zimmerman was right on the money with his suspicions about Trayvon's behavior and activity?

The timeline could have been established from surveillance cameras from the store to where he ended up could have been used to determine what he was up to.

His tweets are full of gang language. His associates are obviously bangers judging by the way they tweet. It certainly appears that this kid was a banger and out for no good.
