Multiple Suspensions Show Trayvon Martin No Saint

SANFORD — Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin was suspended from school in October in an incident in which he was found in possession of women’s 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.

A lawyer for the dead teen’s family acknowledged Trayvon had been suspended for graffiti, but said the family knew nothing about the jewelry and the screwdriver, calling the information in the report an attempt to “demonize” the youth.  So if not a demon was he an angel?

According to the report, on Oct. 21 staffers monitoring a security camera at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School spotted Trayvon and two other students writing “W.T.F.,” an acronym for “What the f—,” on a hallway locker, according to schools police. The security employee, who knew Trayvon, confronted the teen and looked through his bag for the graffiti marker.

Trayvon’s backpack contained 12 pieces of jewelry, in addition to a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report, which described the screwdriver as a burglary tool.

Trayvon was asked if the jewelry, which was mostly women’s rings and earrings, belonged to his family or a girlfriend.

“Martin replied it’s not mine. A friend gave it to me,” according to the report. Trayvon declined to name the friend.

School police impounded the jewelry and sent photos of the items to detectives at Miami-Dade police for further investigation.

“Martin was suspended, warned and dismissed for the graffiti,” according to the report prepared by Miami-Dade Schools Police.

That suspension was followed four months later by another one, in February, in which Trayvon was caught with an empty plastic bag with traces of marijuana in it, the boy’s family’s attorney has confirmed. A schools police report obtained by The Miami Herald specifies two items: a bag with marijuana residue and a “marijuana pipe.”

The suspension was the third for the teen. On Monday, the family also acknowledged Trayvon had earlier been suspended for tardiness and truancy.

The reports of the suspensions surfaced as a more complicated portrait of Trayvon began to emerge Monday. Trayvon was shot to death in Sanford on Feb. 26 during a scuffle with neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. He was suspended from school at the time.

Reacting to the new schools police report, Ben Crump, an attorney for the parents, said they “never heard anything like this about a bag of jewelry….And anyway, it’s completely irrelevant to what happened Feb. 26. They never heard this, and don’t believe it’s true. If it were true, why wouldn’t they call the parents? Why wasn’t he arrested?”

“We think everybody is trying to demonize him.”

Trayvon, who was 17 when he died, allegedly at the hands of George Zimmerman, had never been arrested, he said.

    I am still wondering why they continue to publish and show him a a YOUNG boy …. He was over 6 foot tall and somewhat muscular now …. Those pictures that they show are VERY deceptive and shown to stir up emotion ….

    I had no information that the kid was that big. You’re right Colonel the media is portraying him as a young kid about 5’6″ maybe. Got a link for that info sir?

    Why does it matter how tall he was? 17 and autistic matters a hell of a lot more. I don’t care if he was 4ft or 8ft, on somewhere in between. As for the trouble he may have gotten into, it has nothing to do with him being murdered. Also, he would never have been the brains behind either of those incidents. He’s autistic, likely freaked out over being touched. Zimmermann freaked, didn’t handle it well, and his being the racist ass he likely is, shot and killed a teenager in cold blood.

      Jason he wasn’t autistic man. He was a football player, and a troubled kid by the latest accounts, but not autistic.

    Im so sick of this overblown bullshit. Truth of the matter is that angel trayvon acted like a normal ghetto punk kid and puffed up and ran his mouth. Im not saying he should have been shot but we all know the type(alligator mouth wth a jaybird azz). George is aparently a pussy and he over reacted pulling a gun instead of knocking this punks teeth down his throat. So this leaves us with a decision, if george was attacked theres no case legally. If not he will visit the big house. As to the ignorant ghetto gliders, rediculous black panthers, lawyers that apparently found a law degree in the bottem of the pigs feet jar, and numerous other retards that want to make this kid the second coming of christ plz shut up otherwise I say turn george loose on em all. There are many BLACK heroes to follow, this pubescent ghetto rat isnt one of them.
