    The February 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martion might never have happened if school officials in Miami-Dade County had not instituted an unofficial policy of treating crimes as school disciplinary infractions. Revelations that emerged from an internal affairs investigation explain why Martin was not arrested when caught at school with stolen jewelry in October 2011 or with marijuana in February 2012. Instead, the teenager was suspended from school, the last time just days before he was shot dead by George Zimmerman.

    In October 2011, after a video surveillance camera caught Martin writing graffiti on a door, MDSPD Office Darryl Dunn searched Martin’s backpack, looking for the marker he had used. Officer Dunn found 12 pieces of women’s jewelry and a man’s watch, along with a flathead screwdriver the officer described as a “burglary tool.†The jewelry and watch, which Martin claimed he had gotten from a friend he refused to name, matched a description of items stolen during the October 2011 burglary of a house on 204th Terrace, about a half-mile from the school. However, because of Chief Hurley’s policy “to lower the arrest rates,†as one MDSPD sergeant said in an internal investigation, the stolen jewerly was instead listed as “found property†and was never reported to Miami-Dade Police who were investigating the burglary. Similarly, in February 2012 when an MDSPD officer caught Martin with a small plastic bag containing marijuana residue, as well as a marijuana pipe, this was not treated as a crime, and instead Martin was suspended from school.

    Schools seem to think they are above the law, up to and including the Constitution. When I was in high school the staff certainly enjoyed telling the students they didn't have the same rights as other human beings, being limited only to the "student bill of rights." Of course this is the same school system that will take any opportunity to declare a student whose grades are suffering "special ed" because they get more money for having retarded kids.

    Rather than saying the school policy led to his death, I'd rather blame Trayvon for choosing to be a thug. Perhaps his parents share the blame...

    His parents do share the blame, they choose to have a black child, if Trayvon wouldnt have been walkin home lookin all black and shit he would be alive.

    White schools without crimes are arresting 2nd graders who draw a picture of a gun. You can't win.

    Great post. This did not come out much in the media. This is what happens when little thugs are not held accountable for what they do.

    What happens? You wrote "this is what happens." What is the "this" to which you refer? :scratch:

    Martin might not have attempted to murder Zimmerman if he had been locked up for his other crimes.

    No mention there of attacking the bus driver.

    MSNBC has started using a picture of him as an embryo so he looks less menacing.

    He wouldn't have been locked up for a 1st offence B&E even with a marijuana charge. He'd have been released or made bail and still been right there.

    George Zimmerman should be given a $300 check from Crimestoppers for killing that little puke.
