Leniency is not always mercy when dealing with juvenile delinquents, and I say this on the basis of my own experience of having been a teenage dopehead in the ’70s. My hoodlum buddies got away with a lot of stuff, but we also caught a time or two, and Sheriff Earl Lee was not the kind of man a dopehead hoodlum could take lightly....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 jewerly 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.
The MSM insist on talking about mistakes that the “white Hispanic” otherwise known as “creepy-ass cracker” George Zimmerman made. Zimmerman was caught in a dark night getting sucker-punched and knocked to the ground because my guess is that he did not believe Trayvon Martin would attack him. That was a mistake.
But Trayvon Martin made a bigger mistake. He appeared to believe he could take the “creepy-ass cracker” out by hitting him in the face, straddling him when he went down and trying to beat him, possibly to death. One thing he did not take into account is that the man he was trying to injure or kill had a gun. Trayvon Martin made lots of mistakes in his short life; that was his last one.
