The February 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin 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. Did the national media try to use this shooting as a vehicle to incite racial tensions in America?
Cynical, race-profiteering troublemakers like NBC’s Al Sharpton, Joe Scarborough, and Savannah Guthrie are stirring hatred because it fits their left-wing worldview and boosts ratings. Race-baiting persists in America because it’s encouraged by the leftist press.
NBC employee and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough wrote in the Politico that it is “my belief that George Zimmerman is a racist idiot who chased an unarmed teenager through a neighborhood for little reason more than he was a black man wearing a hoodie.”
On NBC’s Today, anchor Savannah Guthrie wondered whether there hadn’t been enough race in the trial, asking social agitator and MSNBC host Al Sharpton, “Do you think the prosecutors missed an opportunity there, that they didn’t explicitly make this case about racial profiling?”
How a Miami School Crime Cover-Up Policy Led to Trayvon Martin’s Death
From a July 7, 2013 Miami Herald article
Trayvon Martin was not from Sanford, the town north of Orlando where he was shot in 2012 and where a jury acquitted Zimmerman of murder charges Saturday. Martin was from Miami Gardens , more than 200 miles away, and had come to Sanford to stay with his father’s girlfriend Brandy Green at her home in the townhouse community where Zimmerman was in charge of the neighborhood watch. Trayvon was staying with Green after he had been suspended for the second time in six months from Krop High School in Miami-Dade County , where both his father, Tracy Martin, and mother, Sybrina Fulton, lived.
