Daily Mail UK ^ | March 27, 2012 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 03/28/2012 4:49:03 AM PDT by COUNTrecount

* 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

Trayvon Martin was suspended from school three times in the months before he was shot dead by a neighborhood watchman, it emerged today.

It was also revealed that he might have attacked a bus driver, according to a Twitter account that it is claimed belonged to the teen.

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 the drug.

The fresh claims are likely to be seized upon by supporters of George Zimmerman who say the teenager launched an unprovoked attack on the neighbourhood watch volunteer moments before Trayvon was shot dead.

The revelation about the suspension in October, in a school report obtained by the Herald, was condemned today by Trayvon's family as part of a campaign to smear their dead son.

The boy's mother said: 'They killed my son and now they're trying to kill his reputation.'

New picture emerges: This photograph, taken from a Twitter account the reportedly belonged to Trayvon, shows an older image of the teen -- just as new reporting are casting a different light on his behavior

ARE THESE TRAYVON MARTIN'S TWEETS FROM WEEKS BEFORE HIS DEATH?

The Daily Caller, a conservative news site, has published 152 pages of tweets it says were copied from Trayvon Martin's Twitter account before it was taken down.

Here is a small sample of the messages by a user with the handle '@NO_LIMIT_N***A' sent and received in the months before Trayvon's death:

* (From a cousin): Yu ain't tell me yu swung on a bus driver * PLZZ EXERCISE YO RIGHT 2 REMAIN SILENT..

Looks like the 52% who voted-in 0bummer&Co has now grown to 73%; America’s in very, very serious trouble when it allows the govt-run media to do its thinking/evaluating. Pretty sad state of affairs we’re in now.

“73% of us are BRAINLESS IDIOTS.”

And somehow some people can’t grasp how anyone, on their back and fighting for their life, could possibly reach their weapon in an effort to stop the attacker....especially with a broken nose and the back of his head bleeding. Zimmerman better have a good lawyer or else he’ll end up in some prison ward, all doped up, and unable to stand trial.

Hell he would have been the next President of the USA with all his street cred. “Act like a thug and die like a thug.” The truth is what it really is, Mr.Zimmerman had the right to self defense. The racial idiots in life do not believe in due process when they are caught committing a crime. The Trayvon’s of the world prefer,retalitory justice. This serves their purpose regardless of the true facts in the case.

I hope the Grand Jury issues a “NO Bill” on this one.

While Martin’s background may explain his violent behavior, it is irrelevant here.

We know that, at the moment of the shooting, Martin was attacking Zimmerman (on top of him) to the point where Zimmerman defended himself with his firearm.

At this point, the only thread liberals can hope for is to say Zimmerman physically attacked Martin first, who defended himself, and then Zimmerman shot Martin when he was losing the fight.

And that lies in the realm of no witnesses, no evidence and only Zimmerman’s word.

Which is why liberals will never give this up.

“a flathead screwdriver - and 12 pieces of women's jewellery. Martin insisted that they did not belong to him”

In other reports of this story they mentioned that he, “declined to say who gave them to him.” And apparently for the school, that was the end of it!

In any place but a liberal run numb-skull school system, if you are caught with incriminating evidence, it IS yours until you prove otherwise. If you ‘decline’ to say who gave it to you, NOBODY GAVE IT TO YOU.

Like so many of these cases, the ‘kid’ is allowed to get away with progressively more and more. This only reinforces the idea that they CAN get away with more and more. It always ends with them killing somebody, or somebody killing them.

At least this story has the better of the two endings.

"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."

This could certainly explain the "suspicious behavior" which caught Zimmerman's attention in the first place. Burglars usually case the neighborhood they intend to hit next.

I have a dumb question, which nobody seems to have an answer to...the police report doesn’t mention Skittles and tea, where exactly did the Skittles meme come from?

It seems that one of the bedrock foundations of the St. Skittles story came out of thin air.

If I were an enterprising reporter, I’d go to every gas station in the area, looking for the ‘last known screenshot’ of St. Skittles...complete with hoodie. I’d interview the last clerk to witness the miracle of being in the presence of No_limit_n*gga, and we’d all have a group cry, on camera of course. And, of course, there should be a make-shift memorial at the door, just under the sign advertising Lotto tickets.

Why none of this? Did he go to the store...did he actually make a purchase? My mind is just wandering.

I think they took that poll in Harlem.

I believe they should arrest Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton for inciting a riot, and they should arrest Obama for fraudulently occupying the white House.

The Mother isn’t worried about her son’s reputation , he already ruined that, she is worried about the T-shirt sales dropping. Maybe if she had worried more about her son he wouldn’t have been suspended 3 times from school.Yet: She blames the school. Which is very typical .

"They" would be those that are trying to point out the truth that Trayvon was just another young aspiring thug, and thereby diminish her new found notoriety and celebrity attention, which is based on her poor innocent yute son, killed by a mean racist whitey for no reason. Diminishing her fame with the truth is what's bothering her.

Can you say "Escalating acts of violence?"

I knew you could.

From petty burglary and drug use and distribution to attacking a bus driver.

Young thug sneaks off to burn one and gets spotted so he decides to attack the "fat, little cracker" and ends up ventilated.

"Act like a thug, die like a thug."

This is the true lesson to be learned here.

“Normal” = in accordance with the prevailing local culture.

This is rather what “critical race theory” is about. The rules of the larger American culture deem these behaviors as unacceptable, though they are completely “normal” within the subculture in question.
That is why the larger culture and the laws that extend from those mores are deemed “racist”, because the laws criminalize what is “normal” within the subculture.

That witness saw the end of the fight, not the beginning.

Again, the left will say Zimmeran got physical first, maybe even flashed his pistol. Martin feared for his life and tried to disarm Zimmerman and was shot in the process.

Do you get it now?

This is a very good observation. The global communists are using 'cultural marxism' / political correctness to conquer the US from within.

" . . . They are contaminated; they are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern. You cannot change their mind[s], even if you expose them to authentic information, even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still cannot change the basic perception and the logic of behavior. In other words, these people... the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible . . ." Yuri Bezmenov 1984

'All warfare is based primarily on the deception of an enemy. Fighting on a battlefield is the most primitive way of making war. There is no art higher than to destroy your enemy without a fight—by SUBVERTING anything of value in the enemy’s country.' Sun Tzu Chinese philosopher 500 B.C.

If not the same argument, at least the same mentality -

“we don’t want to comply by your rules, and we’re going to play on your culture’s inherent sense of compassion to let us get away with violating your rules.”

Rabbit trail warning...

I think the coolest “disarm” scene ever, in any movie, was in one of the Lethal Weapon movies where the antagonist took the slides off of the cops’ guns “in one deft move”.

“He insisted they did not belong to him....If they were stolen they DID NOT belong to him.”

Not in any of the accounts I’ve read.

He said they were given to him, and when he said he would not tell them by who, he was admitting that he actually knew who gave them to him.

Personally I call BS on the entire story. I believe the tool was his, and the jewelery had been stolen by him. My point is, why did the school just let the matter drop?

My guess is an “illegal search”....But it certainly appears that this young man’s behavior was getting out of control one step at a time with very few consiquences.
Often being suspended from school is considered a reward rather than a punishment by the child. Only the parents see it differently. Since dad took him from his mother’s home and he was spending the suspension at dad’s girl friend’s house, it may have been an even bigger reward for Trey.

Reports earlier said that Trayvon had called his girlfriend because he was scared of Zimmerman.

I think he called his girlfriend because he wanted her to listen while he administered a beat down on Zimmerman.

I'm not sure of the reason, but I am dam sure of the pattern.

The kid does something, and gets away with it - they do something bigger. They do something bigger, and gets away with it - they do something even bigger.

The pattern repeats and continues until somebody is laying in a pool of their own blood - either a victim, or the ‘child.’ Everybody that lets them get away with it IS an accomplice.
