Posted on 03/27/2012 1:04:03 PM PDT by Jack Hydrazine
Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager shot dead during a scuffle with a neighborhood watchman, was suspended from his Miami school three times over the past year, according to the family attorney.
The revelation that Martin, 17, was dogged by disciplinary problems at school was the latest salvo in a war of leaks meant to bolster each side amid rising tension over the Feb. 26 shooting. Martin's parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, will appear before a House panel today and rallies continue around the country demanding that George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old watchman who shot Martin, be arrested.
Martin may have cut a more imposing figure than previously known. Recent pictures on the web and social media show him with gold dental grill and making obscene gestures to the camera. In addition, Martin's Miami school records show that he has been suspended three times. Family attorney Benjamin Crump confirmed to ABC News that Martin had been slapped with a 10 day school suspension after a bag with suspected marijuana was found in his backpack.
Last year Martin was suspended for spraying graffiti on school grounds. The Miami Herald reported that the school guard who stopped him searched his backpack and found 12 items of women's jewelry and a flathead screw driver that the guard believed to be a "burglary implement." But Martin was never charged or specifically disciplined for the incident. Crump alleged that the Sanford police had leaked damaging information about Martin into order to muddy the case, calling it a "conspiracy."

If you read his twitter account tweets, you can fairly quickly determine what he was interested in .... it wasn’t school work.

Looks like he was a burglar in REAL LIFE.
No reason for Zimmerman to follow THIS guy : )
No no, can’t be true.
The media says trevon was a f-ing saint.
His mom is trying to trademark this punks name? Got to make a dime somehow now don’t ya?
Ahat a crock of crappola.
They want the George Zimmerman vigilante act. They are going nutz, I don’t know if this Brady activist is going to cry. They are after guns!!!
It’s not Congress, it’s Democratic members of Congress. This is the kind of irrational, emotional stuff they like.
Obviously you have read the teets. The following is meant to be a joke re the tweets. If you are easily offended do not proceed.
Dear President Obama,
In light of Trayvon Martin’s posts on Twitter I was wondering what your position is on f***ing bi***es? Any bi***es.
Women’s jewelry? Screwdriver? At SCHOOL??? What’s THAT about???? These facts,plus the drugs and various twitter “tweets” (”**** some bi***”) paint a picture of a young punk...or at least that he was well on his way to becoming one.Although I don’t have nearly enough evidence to be sure my hunch is that the shooter was justified...that the kid *did* assault him without *real* (as opposed to imagined) provocation.
This is freaking me out. Whew..thought it was Congress.
Sharpton’s response will read: What do you expect a young black child to do in this economy he can’t get a job! That jewelry wasn’t his, what screwdriver? He had to support himself! Everyone does marijuana these days! The bag was empty! I got blueberry pie all over my face!!
He is an official victim. Therefor all the bad things he did, that can now be mentioned, are someone else’s fault.
I was just reading some of it.
Such an upstanding young man with a bright future ahead. (If he was planning on being a pimp or gang member.)
With all due respect, African-Americans should fell their kids not to attack someone else. It’s illegal, and the other person might be armed.
This is the most fair article I have seen from the MSM in a long time.
No way in hell I could watch that dog & pony show. I would rather watch paint dry.
Let me know if any thing of substance comes out. I won't hold my breath.
