Trayvon Martin involved in criminality: Suspended From School For Possessing Stolen Jewelry And �Burglary Tool��
Evidence is beginning to emerge that Trayvon Martin wasn�t exactly a model teen that stayed out of trouble. In fact, it looks like he was just about getting his �thug� on.
Weasel Zippers reports 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.
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.
Of course none of this new information suggests that Trayvon deserved to get shot. I don�t know what happened that night. However, if Trayvon had a history of low level criminality, that changes the picture quite a bit to what he would be capable of.
