Trayvon Martin's ten day suspension
Charleston Conservative Examiner ^ | March 25, 2012 | Kyle Rogers

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.

This is Rodney King all over again. Don’t pay no never mind the fact that Rodney King had a rap sheet as lone as the Kurile Island chain, nor that he was also incessantly involved in violent crimes after his famous case. Same for OJ Simpson. This will mean NOTHING to a lot of people.

Probably for handing out unlicensed Skittles.

Or for pounding a bus driver, who, unfortunately, was not packing?

Of course, if the bus driver had been armed, then ObamaNation's outrage might now have a different target ...

wrong! You’ve never been or seen a street fight. Why did Trampon jump the fence? First rule of aggresive behavior. Why di’nt tampton walk away? He chose to engage the fight. Of course pummelling someone in a prostrateposition is meaningless? You fool in any type of fight or wrestling that’s declared submission.

I’ll bet Tampon was the aggressor, no doubt. He bes kik’n ass ‘n’ da’fas.
Ghetto trash.

You probably don’t think 6 on 1 is a fair fight, either.

Martin just didn’t know about the gun.

Zimmerman did.

The more you think about the interaction - the larger role martin starts to play. I mean - how could Zimmerman start a fight - with a guy 2X as fast? The fast man - almost must be the aggressor.

As it is now, the OBots, Al Sharpton, the Dems, and the state of Florida do not have a case against Zimmerman, but if they want to lose in court they will have it.

That being said, the Dems and Obama would not mind losing in a court law as they would use this incident as propaganda as being “victims” in an “unjust society” to rattle the base voters to the polls, and/or parlay the incident for new gun control laws.

“Maybe he was walking back to his truck, and it wasn’t a back yard, it was an apartment walkway. Watch the local news report."

The alleyways between the houses are wide open, but the access areas from the street to the alley, between houses, are narrow, shady and have trees planted in them. Good places for someone to be lurking.

Just my two cents: it hardly makes sense that Zimmerman should have been up to something sinister, seeing that he had called 911, he was on the phone with them at the time, he had specifically called police to the scene, asked the 911 operator to have them call him when they arrived, and would have anticipated them being on the scene at any moment.

I read that while Martin was on top of Zimmerman, wailing on him, Zimmerman’s shirt lifted up exposing his gun. Martin went for the gun and in the struggle, Zimmerman was able to get to it and shoot Martin in the chest. Case closed.

Thanks for the link. Sounds like a Level V offense. That is why the offense was suppressed. The action occurred a month ago. The media circus scenario two weeks ago.

This sounded wrong from the beginning. It was the perfect politically correct wet dream. The first claims were it was an all "white" gated community. The perp of the heartless murder was "white" with a "Jewish" sounding name. The tapes were presented with a poor screaming "child". Murder pure and simple. Wait.

None of the Miami story made sense. Miami. An "innocent child" with a hoody in hot and muggy Miami. An "innocent child" buying skittles at 3:00 AM in the morning. I'm sure they were freshly dumped from an Obama unicorn.

Oops. Wait. The defendant was not Jewish. Oh No! The defendant was not white. You should see my shocked face. Oh No! The community was mixed with a history of predatory crime. I am just dumfounded now. Now my jaw is hitting the ground. You mean the tapes of the screaming were from the lynch mob defendant? Enough.

We have been played again. The occupation media is alive and well.

I was listening to Fox radio news today and a disturbing report described the reaction of the black churches. They are whipping the flames of hatred with all their might. One church was telling their congregation to be careful when they walk alone at night. The pastor sounded like the Rev. Jerimiah Wright screaming about how bad racism was murdering his people and how Whitey might shoot them like he did Trayvon Martin. It made me sick.

While the Zimmerman/Martin ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by a gang of feral blacks in Oklahoma just last week?

The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.

The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.
(She was most likely gang raped numerous times...but we will never know for sure)

Both the husband and wife were weak, having just gotten over the flu.

.

There’s a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Where is the 24/7 MSM coverage?

Where is the outrage?

But now evidence is starting to come out that Martin really was leading the thug life, and he’s a flipping national hero?

Man, we have got some seriously confused people in this country.

Is someone seriously (seriesly) trying to claim that this kid was suspended for being tardy? Good grief, they must think we are all idiots.

Well, the media is doing a good job of it.

The amount of lies spread by the media is more than criminal.

Just ask friends who are casual observers and they will tell you:

1)Zimmerman hunted down Martin and shot him for no reason and is a known racist.

2) Zimmerman had Martin pinned down.

3) Martin was heard on the 911 call screaming for help when Zimmerman executed him.

4) Martin never did anything wrong and was a sweet, innocent boy.

The facts from the police report and eyewitnesses are totally ignored.

That's because this isn't really about Zimmerman. He's just a symbol. This about a problem that has been festering within African American culture for decades, and that problem has now become pathological, and they need someone to blame.

I skimmed this thread, but did the fact that the pistol did not even begin to chamber round #2 come up? Round #2 still in the mag means it was a wrestling match for the pistol, with somebody’s hand or hands wrapped around the slide, preventing it from moving rearward to pick up round #2.

A wrestling match over a gun can’t be murder, can it? With the shooter on his back, getting beaten?

“Talking is the solution there, my friend.”

Our neighborhood was victimized by a rash of burglaries several years ago. The neighbors got together and now seldom does a stranger walk through the area without one of the residents chatting with them or getting their tag number. If that stranger would be overly aggressive, then too bad for them. By the way, it takes about an hour for a police response in our area. We haven’t had any more crimes committed in about three years. Coincidence?

If it had been many of the Freepers being followed, Zimmerman might have eaten a bullet, due to his stupidity.

I actually think more people here, once they'd lost Zimmerman (which was stated on the recorded phone call), would have hightailed it home, not gone back and sought out Zimmerman....especially a 17 year old.

All you want to do is get away and to safety. Once you've lost the guy following you, you don't go find him again!

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.

I doubt many Freepers would RUN because a lone adult in a vehicle was following them in plain sight of everyone in the neighborhood. I know I wouldn't.

I would, however, turn around and ask if they were lost and if I could help them.

-----

I also doubt many FReepers would cold-cock the guy from behind, jump on him, break his nose and pummel him to the point he feared for his life.

In the future, please keep your perverted broad brush to yourself.

Thank you.

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.

You are a block from home and you keep walking. GZ's mistake of following does not justify TM's mistake of punching and jumping on GZ. Just because that was TM's last mistake doesn't mean it wasn't a mistake.

According to the Kansas City Star, the length of the suspension was ten days. This suggests a very serious offense. Probably for handing out unlicensed Skittles.

Schools get a lot of heat over having more black students getting disciplined than white students. As a result, while a school may suspend a white kid for handing out unlicensed Skittles, or drawing a picture of a gun (in order to get their numbers in balance), a black kid would have to do something very serious to get suspended.

I’m a little confused about the “stand your ground” law..what proof is needed to claim it was self-defense?

Text of Florida's Stand Your ground Law says:

776.032 Immunity from criminal prosecution and civil action for justifiable use of force.—

(1) A person who uses force as permitted in s. 776.012, s. 776.013, or s. 776.031 is justified in using such force and is immune from criminal prosecution and civil action for the use of such force, unless the person against whom force was used is a law enforcement officer, as defined in s. 943.10(14), who was acting in the performance of his or her official duties and the officer identified himself or herself in accordance with any applicable law or the person using force knew or reasonably should have known that the person was a law enforcement officer. As used in this subsection, the term “criminal prosecution” includes arresting, detaining in custody, and charging or prosecuting the defendant.

(2) A law enforcement agency may use standard procedures for investigating the use of force as described in subsection (1), but the agency may not arrest the person for using force unless it determines that there is probable cause that the force that was used was unlawful.

Translation: Zimmerman does not need to prove it was self defense. He can say he was defending himself and then stand mute and not say anything further. The State needs to show probable cause that it was NOT self defense before they can even arrest him, and then prove to the jury that it was NOT self defense.

Well, he might have had a little trouble getting someone to open the door to him. According to at least one of the police reports provided by the city a “black man” knocked at a woman’s door and when she didn’t he came back with another “black man” and knocked again and when she didn’t answer they went around to the patio, broke the glass door. At this point the woman ran up stairs and locked herself in her bedroom and called the police. By the time they arrived the house had been ransacked and many valuable items stolen. She was totally frighted because after she locked herself in the bedroom she could hear them ransacking the place and they even tried to get into her bedroom but desisted. How’s that getting scared to death.
That’s what I remember but may have some details wrong. If you wish I can look it up again and provide you links.

Yes, Martin went out looking for Treyvon...while on the phone with the police, telling them what he was doing. While he was told he “did not have to do that” he chose to anyway. This, by itself, would not have led to Treyvons death. When it got to the point of Zimmerman getting the crap beat out of him, on his back, the shooting was self defense. Period.
