        http://www.csua.org/u/vw7 (http://www.dailymail.co.uk
        Is this truth, or false rumor spread by critics?
        \_ Does it make any difference?
           \_ I guess since there probably won't be solid evidence on either
              side of the story (no witness, no surveillence tape, ...), this
              will sway the jury if it's true.
              \_ Lemme put it this way: if they try this in a Simi Valley
                 equivalent, all the jury hears is black dude acting
                 suspicious. Cf. Rodney King.

Share * + + + Trayvon Martin was suspended from school three times in the months before he was shot dead by a neighborhood watchman, it emerged today. The new claims, revealed in a leaked report, paint a different picture of a teenager who frequently found himself in trouble with authorities. It was also revealed that he might have attacked a bus driver, according to a Twitter account that it is claimed belonged to the teen. The Miami Herald claims that in October, he was caught with a 'burglary tool' - a flathead screwdriver - and 12 pieces of women's jewellery. Earlier, he had been suspended for skipping school and showing up late to class. And most recently, in February, he was suspended again when officials found a 'marijuana pipe' and an empty baggie with traces of the drug. The fresh claims are likely to be seized upon by supporters of George Zimmerman who say the teenager launched an unprovoked attack on the neighbourhood watch volunteer moments before Trayvon was shot dead. Trayvon Martin New picture emerges: This photograph, taken from a Twitter account the reportedly belonged to Trayvon, shows an older image of the teen -- just as new reporting are casting a different light on his behavior Trayvon Martin George Zimmerman Killing: Trayvon Martin (left) was shot dead by George Zimmerman (right) one month ago today in a gated community in Sanford, Florida The revelation about the suspension in October, in a school report obtained by the Herald, was condemned today by Trayvon's family as part of a campaign to smear their dead son. Trayvon's mother trademarks her son's name as merchandise hits stands throughout Florida The conservative news site the Daily Caller and the blog the Wagist claim they have unearthed a Twitter account, which has since been taken down, that belonged to the teen. Among many Tweets, the Wagist claims, is a message from his cousin implying that Trayvon attacked a bus driver. Tracy Martin Mourning: Trayvon's father, Tracy Martin, weeps at a rally for his son Monday in Sanford, Florida The Daily Caller, says it has published 152 pages of tweets downloaded from Trayvon's account. The site says Trayvon went by the Twitter handle NO_LIMIT_N***A. The October suspension was officially for graffiti, after he and some friends wrote WTF' on a school locker. Racial fury: Thousands of protesters attended the Sanford rally on Monday Racial fury: Thousands of protesters attended the Sanford rally on Monday Outrage: Tracy Martin (center) was passionate at a meeting of the Sanford city commissioners Monday, alongside his ex-wife Sabrina Fulton Outrage: Tracy Martin (center) was passionate at a meeting of the Sanford city commissioners Monday, alongside his ex-wife Sabrina Fulton According to an October report of the incident by the Miami Dade Schools Police, obtained by the Miami Herald, Trayvon never received any punishment for the jewellery because he said it was not his and it belonged to a friend. ZIMMERMAN'S LAWYER 'FLEES' MSNBC INTERVIEW MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell claims he frightened away George Zimmerman's lawyer, Craig Sonner, because he planned to ask him tough questions. Sonner has been making rounds with the media since Sunday and publicly defending Zimmerman's shooting of Trayvon Martin as self-defense. However, O'Donnell said previous interviews, mostly with network TV morning show hosts, have been too soft on Mr Sonner -- who has mostly refused to give specific details about the case. In lieu of Mr Sonner, O'Donnell chose symbolically interview an empty chair and ask the questions he intended to put to the attorney. You say he sought some sort of medical treatment the next day. Instead, he was suspended on October 21for the graffiti charge. And anyway, it's completely irrelevant to what happened February 26. The third, and arguably most serious suspension, came in February in the days leading up to his death. According to the Miami Herald, Miami-Dade Schools Police reported finding a bag with marijuana residue and a marijuana pipe' in the 17-year-old's possession. Michael M Krop Senior High School has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to drug related incidents so he was suspended for an undisclosed amount of time. Mr Crump said: If he and his friends experimented with marijuana, that is completely irrelevant. The hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee comes as nearly three quarters of Americans believe Zimmerman should be arrested, according to a CNN/ORC International poll. Only 11 percent of the people surveyed believe Zimmerman should not be arrested. The unanimity against Zimmerman's shooting even crosses racial and lines. About 67 percent of whites support his arrest and 86 percent of non-whites. Majorities of Republicans, Democrats and independents are all on the same page. At a Sanford City Council meeting Monday, which turned into a public forum on the Trayvon shooting, Rev Al Sharpton gave city leaders a petition with 2 million signatures of people calling for Zimmerman to be locked up. Kitted out: These supporters brought Skittles and Iced Tea with them to the rally, as they were the only two things Trayvon had on him at the time of the fatal incident Kitted out: These supporters brought Skittles and Iced Tea with them to the rally, as they were the only two things Trayvon had on him at the time of the fatal incident Demonstration: Thousands of people march down Park Avenue Monday in support of Trayvon Martin at downtown Sanford, Florida Demonstration: Thousands of people march down Park Avenue Monday in support of Trayvon Martin at downtown Sanford, Florida P**** A** CRACKER: SHOCKING RANGE OF TRAYVON T-SHIRTS TARGET GEORGE ZIMMERMAN Trayvon Martin A shocking range of T-shirts were unveiled today in support of black teenager Trayvon Martin. The incendiary slogans are likely to fuel rising racial tension surrounding the killing of the teenager. The new details about Trayvon's past come the same day as thousands marched through the streets of Sanford, where the shooting happened, to demand justice. The boy's mother and father joined the rally, where they called for justice. The national attention from perennial leaders of the black community, Sharpton and Rev Jesse Jackson is not welcome, according to CL Bryant, the former head of the NAACP in Garland, Texas. The report, leaked to the Orlando Sentinel and ABC News and based on anonymous sources, supports accounts from George Zimmerman's allies that he acted in self-defense when he shot dead the 17-year-old one month ago in Sanford Florida. The embattled Sanford Police Department, while condemning the leak, confirmed that the story was consistent with information private to the State Attorney's office, which is currently considering whether to file charges against Zimmerman. The police account is also based mostly on Zimmerman's own words to officers after they arrived at the gated community February 26, but it is the most complete picture of his side of the shooting that has been released publicly. As the Orland Sentinel reports, Zimmerman got out of his car and followed Trayvon as he walked back to the home of his father's girlfriend after picking up snacks at a local convenience store. Zimmerman called 911 to report a suspicious black teenager who looked like he might be on drugs. As he walked after the teen, the police dispatcher told Zimmerman he didn't need to keep following. Trayvon, 6-foot-3 and 140 pounds, then reportedly climbed on top of the 250-pound Zimmerman and bashed his head into the sidewalk several times.
