Skip to comments.Trayvon Martin's ten day suspension
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.

There’s no hating on my part. Just commenting on the story as I understand it.
But there is a whole bunch of assumption of Trayvon’s guilt, just simply because he’s black and tall going on though.
If this goes to trial, the defense would use this which goes to the violent nature of Trayvon Martin. The government, if they prosecute this case against Zimmermann, have a slam-dunk losing case. It’s no wonder that the police and the local DA are not pursuing this and are going to let some grand jury decide.
The politicizing of this unfortunate event is all for show because Obama and the Demo-party need villain(s) to energize their lackadaisical base to get to the voter polls this November. That’s the bottom line.
Lanie, I would suspend my own kids for 30 days for bringing home junk food like Skittles. Unfortunately, I was at the time outvoted by my current ex. The consequences are felt to this day,
Patience is a virtue.
There is one way to end a conversation on these threads Steel.
Do you have any proof Zimmerman committed a crime?
Conversation over :)
That does not give Martin the right to assault Zimmerman. Clearly Zimmerman would have been better off not following Martin but Martin was not authorized to assault Zimmerman more than Zimmerman was not authorized to follow Martin.
See what happens when you die?
You change from a cute 12 year old to a 17 year old with a tat.
As I said, most of us, if we were in Martin’s place might have done the same thing under the same circumstances.
As I also said, if Zimmerman had made contact with Martin, from a safe distance, it’s unlikely any of this would have taken place.
Gold! Check out the cost of gold grill work, and the name of the model provided, above. Looks from the photo like Tray’s got about 8 gold teeth. He had to be selling pot. What high school kid could afford that?
What is it about black guys and gold teeth?
Writer Ken Kesey wrote in his book `The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test’ about a black guy proudly showing off his gold tooth.
Kesey had a gold tooth with a diamond chip in it, and showed it to him.
The black guy left, sad and beaten.
That was wrong of me. I shouldnt have done that. I outniggered him.
Hey, don’t zot me Mod—I didn’t write it! The hippie did.
No if he had asked Zimmerman why he was following him and cleared things up, instead of beating on him this would have gone differently. We have a pool in our Association that gets used by people not authorized. I have asked kids I don’t recognize which home they live in.
The basic idea is that some states require a person to retreat from threats, even in their own homes in some cases. Self-defense, under these laws, can only be claimed if escape is impossible. "Stand Your Ground" laws make it explicit that retreat is not legally required. A law-abiding citizen can simply stand their ground and if someone insists on attacking them then force may be used for self-defense.
Tom Wolf was the author, but you’re right about Kesey’s response to the incident.
Is someone seriously (seriesly) trying to claim that this kid was suspended for being tardy? Good grief, they must think we are all idiots.
With us picking up the tab, I would guess platinum.
if Zimmerman was getting the crap kicked out of him, is that enough reason to shoot Martin? Would it be Zimmermans word alone that he feared for his life & stand your ground applies?
No, Zimmermann has a witness - Witness: Trayvon Martin attacked Zimmerman before shooting
To Obama and his allies like Al Sharpton, the prosecution is not the real objective. Their real objective is getting the "positive effects" from the propaganda.
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.
Talking is the solution there, my friend.
I’ll give a nice eulogy for you, if you let me know when your funeral will be.
There's a whole bunch of assumption of Trayvon's innocence just simply because he's black, and Zman isn't.
The ENEMEDIA is intentionally stirring race hate with their manipulation of this tragedy. Don't get caught up in it.
how does a 17 year old get a tat? I thought you had to be 18?
“Bbbut, he was an honor student!”
Again it is hardly a tragedy.
A tragedy is losing your life defending your home from an asshole SWAT team that got the wrong houze because it didn’t do a proper Intel job.
