Skip to comments.Multiple suspensions paint complicated portrait of Trayvon Martin
Posted on 03/26/2012 2:43:16 PM PDT by ruralvoter
Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin was suspended from school in October in an incident in which he was found in possession of womens jewelry and a screwdriver that a schools security staffer described as a burglary tool, The Miami Herald has learned.
Trayvon, who claimed that an unnamed friend had given him the jewelry, was not disciplined because of the discovery, but was instead suspended for graffiti, according to a Miami-Dade Schools Police report obtained by The Miami Herald.

Sort of a “reverse OJ”, huh?
Propaganda and opinion manipulation. We are being played.
I’m not sure where I read it, but George Zimmerman is reportedly 5’9”. Wherever I read it, I considered it a legitimate source, and it makes more sense to me than 5’3”.
The jewelry went to the cops.
I lived in a town where that was the standard pattern for burglaries. They didn’t take anything big, they’d just swoop in, grab the jewelry or even change off the dresser top, and be on their way.
The article also mentioned that he had a watch in his bag. He sounds to me like a typical “dresser-top burglar.”
I live in FLA, not Miami though (different country), and the cops at the schools I went to were all real officers with the city I lived in.
Didn't take long for the Dems to choose the next Sandra Fluke.
That is some funny stuff!
We’re now supposed to trust the ‘Martin’s’ Fisherman!
He doesn’t look like Barrack’s son. Perhaps this one takes after his paternal grandma, Ann Durham.
I exact thought when I saw this picture with the original post, I’am a Trayvon. “F”ing stupid people walking this planet.
Winning the championship against the 250 lb Willard:
In the event Willard was knocked down seven times all in the first round...Willard's corner would not let him answer the bell for the fourth round. He was widely reported to have suffered a broken jaw, broken ribs, several broken teeth and a number of deep fractures to his facial bones..." - Wiki
I read 5’3” in the article I read.
Media reports have been all over the place with lots of mistakes (which is a huge part of the problem) so 5’9” is just as likely.
Still 6’3” vs 5’9” is still a significant mismatch in a fight.
I also read an article where he was referred to as “ex-football player”
if true, wonder why he stopped playing football ?
Perhaps because he was found with burglary tools and jewelry, and busted for graffiti.
Couldn’t possibly be because he couldn’t maintain a GPA to play, because we all know these kids are honor students turning their lives around.
Usually one needs good grades to play football, and good behavior. He may not have had either recently.
Everyone knows that light-skinned blacks are smarter and less threatening than the dark-skinned ones. If anyone remembers that SNL skit with Julian Bond.
You are wrong, We aren’t being played , we know what’s happening, they are playing the Obama voters.
From what I hear 6’2” and played linebacker for his school’s football team.
Media attempts to characterize Martin as a “helpless” little 6'3” 160 lb waif (with a picture taken at 13 years old) really pegged my BS- O - Meter so hard it bent the needle.
I spent more than a few years working with inner city ghetto kids in a notoriously violent school system and I can vouch for the physical damage a 17 year old gang banger can mete out.
A whole lot of people have been sent to the hospital and to the graveyard by 17 year old gang banger bean poles and that's a fact.
>>>You are wrong, We arent being played , we know whats happening, they are playing the Obama voters.
The typical ignorant media consumer is being played. And there are plenty here who are falling for the meme. Glad you’re not one of those.
What a striking resemblance! It’s like Elvis all over again. Trayvon is alive everbody! I bet he’ll show up working at a Burger King next!
Hint to people when a family member dies...don't put the day of the funeral in the paper...thats a signal to some that the house is empty. Happened to a neighbor on the farm. When my hubby died on the farm, a neighbor came over to house sit....the b & e took all the guys guns.
The pic on the left looks shopped also. Where is the kid’s shoulder on the right side of the first pic? And why is that white horizontal bar on the right side of the 2nd pic but not in the first one?
Oh, and by the way , Jack Dempsey started his boxing career when he was about 17-18 and weighed about 150-160 lbs - just about the same stats as Martin.
At that age and weight, Dempsey literally took apart full grown adult men who were trained, professional fighters.
So much for the whole “harmless little child bean pole” meme the media is trying to shove down our throats.
The last resort when the screwdriver won't jimmy the locker.......
This lad may look more like Aunt Zeituni’s son. Or perhaps the half brother, hut dweller George Hussein Onyango. At any rate, Obama may have stepped in a pile ... again.
After they reelected a convicted crackhead for Mayor of D.C. some years ago. Nothing surprises. Marion Berry I believe it was.
D.C. was once the center of a great government, historic where the founders walked and created the greatest country on the planet.
Unfortunately, the pendulum swung from honor to dishonor, it's been subverted and compromised by decadent liars and corrupted frauds. It's become unrecognizable from the neighborhoods to the rotunda and up into the Oval Office.
The lies and glaring propaganda on a national level, generated by events such as this, reveal the disturbing state of affairs. A once united people, are now clearly divided. None of this happen by mistake, but by design.
It’s all about keeping Trayvon’s memory alive. It’s not about the money.
And by the way, do people just take scrabble pieces and through them on the table to come up with these names?
Tommy "Hit man" Hearns........6'1"...144 - 191 lbs.
Because he is dead?
It appears that, under Florida Juvenile Law, juvenile criminal history is confidential.
Juvenile offender records traditionally have been treated differently from other records in the criminal justice system and, with certain exceptions, have been considered confidential. Section 985.04(1), Florida Statutes, provides:
"Except as provided in subsections (2), (3), (6), and (7) and s. 943.053, all information obtained under this chapter in the discharge of official duty by any judge, any employee of the court, any authorized agent of the department, the Parole Commission, the Department of Corrections, the juvenile justice circuit boards, any law enforcement agent, or any licensed professional or licensed community agency representative participating in the assessment or treatment of a juvenile is confidential and may be disclosed only to the authorized personnel of the court, the department and its designees, the Department of Corrections, the Parole Commission, law enforcement agents, school superintendents and their designees, any licensed professional or licensed community agency representative participating in the assessment or treatment of a juvenile, and others entitled under this chapter to receive that information, or upon order of the court. . . ."
Cuz Tray be bangin boyyy....
He be, uh, was, bad....
He B ded now....
MEMO TO FOLK SONGWRITERS: Put away those gittars, and the unfinished lyrics about a ‘Pore Boy Trayvon’.
The Left has a new crop of young people with no memory of the games they played in the 60’s and 70’s to make asses of again.
They will play on their good will and well instilled fear of being named “racists” until the young ones realize they are being emotionally manipulated by liars and theives.
I wonder how many young people even know what these witch-hunting fascists did to the Lax players at Duke.
Resoundingly true, thank you sir/ma’am.
He turned pro in 1977 at the age of 18 or 19.
But we all know a 17 year old 6'3”, 160 lb bean pole is just a baby who could never hurt a fly because the media is shouting that fact out to us at every chance they get
Just offer a $50.00 reward for a recent photo of Tray-Von and you’ll be able to fill up a dump truck with the pix ,,, fitdy bucks will buy a lot of ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
How long before the media starts pulling back from this story because the narrative doesn’t fit?
Trayvons backpack contained 12 pieces of jewelry, in addition to a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report, which described silver wedding bands and earrings with diamonds.
Complicated? What’s so frickin’ complicated? He was a thug.
actrually if you rmember the Bernhard Goetz case the African american youths he shot had sharpened screwdrives that they used to break into vending machines.
Look, almost anything can be described as a burglary tool. You can pick locks with bobby pins. You can even listen to tumblers in an old fashioned combination lock using a RED SOLO CUP ~ (might talk to Toby Keith regarding other uses ~ he knows).
A lot of this is like the nutso stuff MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) did when they got the cops to count as 'alcohol related' every accident where there was so much as an empty beer can in a trunk.
Public school officials aren't much behind that with their zero tolerance policies.
You do nothing whatsoever to maintain public support for "stand your ground" laws and the Second Amendment by allowing public officials to describe screw drivers as burglary tools, aspirins as imitation narcotics, or cupcakes as "prohibited contraband". In fact, all that happens is you end up encouraging the extension of the Fascist state into more and more private territory.
HOPE you are getting that ~
And that would be reported by the same lamestream media that ignored the eyewitness, the suspensions, and everything else.
I am a certified Martial arts instructor that used to teach the police cadets and various agencies over the years. screwdrivers modified or unmodified can be used as burglary tools or weapons. stop being naive. The Media has it's agenda and will not publish anything that varies from that.
Not to mention there isn't much reason for someone attending classes to need a LARGE flathead screwdriver in a backpack containing someone else's jewelry when most of what has screws in it around school are calculators with tiny Phillips head screws.
You'd make a better case if it was his jewelry and it was a jeweler's screwdriver, at least that would be reasonable. Even if it were his jewelry and any kind of screwdriver. It all comes down to his possession of property that was not his.
I stand corrected.
Fantastic book, sucky movie.
