Broward County Florida Schools Institute The “Trayvon Martin Standard” For Student/Police Avoidance….

It was our initial FOIA requests to the Miami Dade School Police Department which revealed the secret discipline and diversionary program Trayvon Martin was granted to avoid a criminal record.    

Specifically Trayvon Martin’s criminal conduct was hidden behind school discipline.  Stolen jewelry was recorded as random ‘found items’ (the jewelry just intentionally placed in storage with no investigation), his possession of marijuana was similarly obfuscated, and all of the incident reports were intentionally falsified by officials and School Resource Officer, Daryl Dunn,  to avoid the Criminal Justice system.

It is all well documented with sworn affidavits from the police department HERE.  No-one has ever been held to account – It is just too politically dangerous an issue.

Well, apparently neighboring Broward County is also willing to jump on the diversionary bandwagon.   This recent article outlines how Broward County wants to blur the lines of illegality in their efforts to avoid young black males being held criminally accountable for their behavior.

Flash Mob Participant MIAMI – One of the nation’s largest school districts has reached an agreement with law enforcement agencies and the NAACP to reduce the number of students being charged with crimes for minor offenses.

The agreement with Broward County Public Schools in Florida, which officials planned to announce Tuesday, is one of the first comprehensive plans bringing together district officials, police and the state attorney’s office to create an alternative to the zero-tolerance policies prevalent in many schools. It charges principals rather than school resource officers with being the primary decision makers in responding to student misbehavior.

The move is designed to cut down on what has become known as the “school-to-prison pipeline,” where students accused of offenses like disrupting class or loitering are suspended, arrested and charged with crimes.

Broward, the nation’s seventh largest district, had the highest number of school-related arrests in Florida in the 2011-2012 school year, according to state data. Seventy-one percent of the 1,062 arrests made were for misdemeanor offenses.

In this South Florida district and others across the country, minority students have been disproportionately arrested, sometimes for the same offenses their white peers received only a warning for. Nationwide, over 70 percent of students involved in school-related arrests or law enforcement referrals are black or Hispanic, according to U.S. Department of Education data.

“It’s pretty rare,” Michael Krezmien, a professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, said of the agreement. “I think if every other school district did it that would be a great step forward.”

The new policy creates a matrix for district officials and school resource officers to follow when a student misbehaves. For non-violent misdemeanors like trespassing, harassment, incidents related to alcohol, possession of a misdemeanor amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, administrators are instructed to try and resolve the situation without an arrest. A variety of alternatives, like participation in a week-long counseling program, are designed to address and correct the student’s behavior.  (continue reading)

Jesse Jackson must be smiling – This was one of his proposals.   A proposal that was picked up by President Obama and led to an executive order to allow black male students to have independent disciplinary policies based on their race and gender.

White and Hispanic males are not afforded such a consideration.

This is one of those up-clicks on the thermostat which warms the water and eventually boils the frog.   And few are paying attention.    –    READ THIS

Broward county is actually just following the Obama program.

    They are too blind to see that the right thing to do is hold these students accountable for their crimes. They will be producing thugs right and left just like Trayvon. Suindance, did you ever get what you wanted from your FOIA request on Angela Corey’s office? It seems that no one is paying for the criminal acts against George. I wonder also about Ben Kruidos case and how it is going.

    Where is tha data that non-black students are treated more leniently? The allegation of soft racism is frequently alluded to but no data is ever offered to bolster that claim. Progressives would have us believe that it is not possible for non-black students as a group to be better behaved and more civily oriented and so the only possibility is preferential treatment.

      Yes. I want names, dates, and situations before I am going to believe what they are saying about white students getting off for the same offenses committed by black students. When I have heard the BGI justification for getting rid of the SYG law, they only refer to Trayvon Martin (a dangerous thug) and the kid who was shot and killed at a gas station (supposedly without having a gun, which I don’t even believe) and that shooter is sitting in jail which they don’t even acknowledge. They just make up (read that: LIE) about whatever they want us to believe.

        I’d venture to guess that if you looked at the numbers, it’s probably more the other way around. If you punish a “white” child for a offense no one is going to come screaming foul… how about they do it this way, have a 3rd party address the offense and punishment… have them not even know the name of the student(s) involved, just their Student Number or something… no race, no gender, no name… just a number. Allow the 3rd party to rate the severity of the event based only on the facts, everything but the “who”. Once the judgment comes down, THEN the principal can discuss the results with the student and apply the punishment (be it suspension, in-school suspension, expulsion, detention, or criminal charges.) And in cases like Mr. Martin, if the offense is something that is covered by the criminal code, immediately refer the case to local PD.

        Treat EVERYONE equal… no one gets “special” treatment.

        On the same token, has MDSPD ever charged anyone else (i.e. non-minorities) with any of the offenses that they chose to “let slide” for Martin? If so, wouldn’t that be grounds for legal action against MDSPD? If my son were caught with “trace amounts” of marijuana and ended being charged (for NOT being part of this Minorities Only plan), isn’t that unfair or preferential treatment based on my son’s race??? Isn’t that what people like the NAACP CLAIM they want to put an end to??

        • I like your idea about a “blind” 3rd party not knowing the race of the alleged offender. What you fail to understand is that institutional racism is so deeply ingrained that it transcends the senses, manifesting itself as invisible vibrations that resonate in the brains of white people, thereby rendering what they see, hear, and think irrelevant. I call it “paranormal racism.”

          The only solution is for white people to agree to mass self-inflicted genocide, so that the world can finally live in peace, harmony, and prosperity, with low-cost housing and affordable healthcare for all.

      Thats the standard lie that’s told over and over that white students get away with criminal behavior that blacks do not. We hear it so much some people believe its true.
      If blacks were held accountable for all their actions we couldn’t build prisons fast enough to hold them all. I think we can but they say we cant!
      The soft hearted bigotry of low expectations is not helping the black race. We (whites) are destroying the black race by letting them get away with murder and not holding them accountable. Yep, It is whiteys fault and our kids will pay for our mistake.

    Jesse Jackson. What can I say?

    Back in the days when we needed all the help we could get to tone down the racial divide after Dr. King died, he said he would make a presentation at our local high school at 8 a.m. We were on a split schedule, so he had the older students first, then we were going to have an outdoor lemonade gathering provided by the neighborhood restaurants so the students could mingle with the educators supposedly accompanying him. Pre-AC in all the schools and it was hot, but we thought going outside would relieve that problem.

    He appeared at 11:30, fresh from his air-conditioned limo, temp about 98 degrees in the auditorium where students had been waiting for how long (?), but no team to advise the students. Gave a very angry 10-minute lecture about how many injustices were slammed on “his” community. Pardon me? He doesn’t live here, but he left us to pick up the pieces. Thank you kindly.

  7. “In this South Florida district and others across the country, minority students have been disproportionately arrested, sometimes for the same offenses their white peers received only a warning for.”

    Perhaps, but this is “non-information” as it does NOT tell us how many “warnings” these poor, innocent children received before they were suspended. I seriously doubt that they have a “dual” policy that applies to white v. black students. Most likely the policy is a warning and then criminal charges. Perhaps the reason is that the “white” students saw the warning as a chance to clean up their behavior to avoid criminal charges and did not re-offend.

    “Nationwide, over 70 percent of students involved in school-related arrests or law enforcement referrals are black or Hispanic, according to U.S. Department of Education data.”

    Might that be because over 70% of the crimes are committed by black (or Hispanic) criminals?

    You know, I’m 57 years old next month. When I was a student, the kids who got into trouble at school; for truancy, smoking, stealing, fighting, vandalizing, disrespecting teachers, etc., were NOT arrested. Their parents were called to the school, they were paddled and sent back to class. And most of those students straightened up from then on. I am not advocating coddling or legalizing criminal behavior – but shouldn’t we adults, who have authority over these wayward youth – try to save them first? Can’t kids be allowed to make mistakes and learn from them? It seems that ruining the rest of their lives is extreme. There should be stern consequences, but it doesn’t have to be law enforcement remedies that will follow them for the rest of their lives.

    And for the record, I think this should apply to ALL students – not just minorities. White and Hispanic students are being subjected to these ruinous consequences, too. I reject the notion that they’re given more breaks than minorities – zero tolerance means just that, regardless of race. We have all done stupid things when were kids, we still do stupid things now. Why should we throw away youth without trying to help them get on right path?

      These students will have a juvenile record until they are 18. Having just a juvenile record, not a record as an adult, is not the end of the world for these students. What the students do after they become adults is up to them. In my experience, kids become more brazen and reckless if they get away with wrongdoing. That’s why it’s important for them to realize the seriousness of their actions. Putting a student in front of judge scares the sh** out of most students and will scare them straight.

      The problem with that is that you would actually have to find parents that care. Many of these kids are not raised in homes that teach ethics, morals, or values. The parents of some of these kids are more likely to give their kids a high-five, then any punishment.

    We have seen the statements of the M-DSPD officers who were investigated in the wake of the Miami Herald article that leaked information about Trayvon Martin’s criminal activity while he attended Krop High School. We also learned (through those same reports) how some of those officers (at the direction of their superiors) falsified their reports to conceal the nature of Trayvon’s behavior. And we read the statement of one officer who related how he suffered retaliation from his superiors for refusing to give minority students preferential treatment during their contact with him. Clearly, this all indicates that at least SOME of those officers realized that it is wrong to grant a “special status” to any race, especially if the purpose was simply to lend the current school administration an appearance of success. This was ALL wrong, on many levels, and for many reasons.

    But, there is another side to the story, something that HAS been lost among the focus on the particulars of how this related to the Trayvon Martin case. As much as it is wrong to grant a special dispensation to blacks for bad behavior, simply because they are blacks, it is equally wrong to administer heavy handed punishments for minor behavioral issues such as those quoted in the linked Breitbart article, based simply on a policy of “zero tolerance”:

    “One other thing I heard quite a bit about was students being arrested for things that I would never have believed constituted an arrest,” Runcie said. “For example, tardiness. Trespassing. Throwing spit balls. Things that you just, using a common sense approach, would say, we wouldn’t want to do this to a child because once you get a record, it basically stays with you for your life.”

    Think of the “zero tolerance” incidents that resulted in other children being suspended, or even expelled, for doing things like chewing a pop-tart into the shape of a pistol, or playing with a toy gun in their own front yard before even going to school. Think of the other children who were attacked at school, and were expelled merely for defending themselves, simply because the school had a “zero tolerance” policy. How many children have been suspended, expelled and, yes, even arrested for behavior that did not warrant such extreme measures, simply because the school administrators have enacted “zero tolerance” policies? Do we really want OUR children to be pushed out of the school systems, or be given criminal records, simply because the school system cannot handle the truly dangerous kids?

    Take a look at how this has translated into the adult world, via the minimum mandatory sentencing statutes, such as the 10-20-life statute in Florida. When enacted, the intent was clear: Remove truly violent offenders from the streets for a LONG time, and make the general populace safer in the process. And it worked, too. But prosecutors have bastardized the process by using that statute as leverage to coerce innocent people into “copping a plea” (and building their conviction stats in the process) or sending first time offenders (like Ronald Thompson) to prison for decades. (For more examples of this, review the discussion of FL HB-89 during the 11/7/13 hearing by the FL Criminal Justice Subcommittee). Clearly, THAT is not the way our criminal justice system was intended to work. But, through our outrage over a minority of incompetent judges who continually handed out weak sentences to violent offenders (and perpetuated the danger to the public) WE demanded this law, and opened the door for that prosecutorial abuse. And, similarly, our outrage over the (seemingly) lawless conditions in some of our schools led to the “zero tolerance” policies were first implemented.

    Look, I’m not suggesting that violent students should be treated gingerly, or that dangerous criminals should be given lenient sentences, but I AM saying that we need to return to a system that places responsibility AND trust back in the hands of the school administrators (and judges) where it belongs. Those officials are selected (or elected) based on their training and ability to administer their respective duties. If they prove to be incompetent, or unwilling to execute their responsibilities fairly and wisely, then REMOVE them. Cast THEM out. Get RID of the people like Superintendent Alberto Carvalho and Judge William Thomas, and search for suitable replacements, rather than maintain “no tolerance policies” and the “10-20-life” statute. Send a message to the POTUS and the NAACP that we need MORE level headed fairness in our schools and courts, and not a further extension of special privileges to bolster the existence of protected classes.

      If you’ve ever confronted an 18-year-old drug addict, you can appreciate some of the terror George Zimmerman encountered. The last time, and there have been a few, I had a M-DSPD officer visiting his sister “up north” and I had a spare bed, so he was sleeping in my home and responded when this glassy-eyed teen broke through my triple-glass patio window using the cast-iron grate bars protecting us — yes, the kid was that out of it that he tore the bars off the window to, basically, steal our TV for drug money. My overnight guest with his experience made the situation the least damaging and my two children never understood what was happening. My husband, retired military, was shattered as his gun was in a lock box, appropriately, given that we had our youngsters in the house, but not convenient to responding to this situation.

      Afterward, as our local police were taking evidence, the M-DSPD officer was sharing some of his experiences.. Very scary. Very sad. No amount of coffee and donuts can make up for the risks these people take every time a foolish kid does something stupid.

      I don’t know the answer, but I know I have to be part of the solution. Your responses here are part of making this work better.

    Almost all schools run a separate school within the system. It is known by some generic name llike alternate school or in-school suspension. This is where the students who do not follow the rules spend their days. Already school systems take care of students from 7 in the morning to 6 in the afternoon when you add in afterschool programs. It’s also behind the push for year round school. Certainly we say things like how much learning is lost over the summer while in fact that is ALWAYS remediated during the first few weeks of school. At the base of this problem, is a large group of students who cannot read. I always describe it like me being in a German class. If everyone around me speaks German and all of the work requires me to speak German, I am eventually going to find somthing else to do which will probably be against the rules. The idea should be to find a way to remediate these students in elementary school. We would all see a better return on our taxes if we work on the root causes at an earlier age. Now we come to the very root of the problem, the break down of the black family unit. I’ll never understand why the Jessie Jacksons of the community don’t focus there instead of crying foul once the angry black male has gone off the tracks. Even in these self-contained in-school suspension schools, the police are called often to take care of extreme acting out behavior. I’m from a small county so I know that I can’t imagine the really thug like behaviors in large school systems.

    I work in a school for emotionally impaired children, 1st through 12th grade. We see a lot of tantrums, lying, sneakiness, and major attitude from our students, mostly when they are new students and haven’t yet benefited from our program.

    IMO, Broward county is doing a disservice to their students. They are allowed 4 misdemeanor offences that are handled within the school before being referred to the police when the 5th offense occurs. Guess how many kids are going to be making 4 misdemeanors? And these 4 are only the ones where they are actually caught of wrongdoing. This is going to increase the chaos in their school and have the administration scratching their heads as to how things got to be so bad.

    In our school, we have zero tolerance for inappropriate behavior. This is like the real world. What boss would allow spit balls in the workplace? Our students quickly adapt to our high standards and almost always are well – mannered and acting appropriately.

    If students are allowed to get away with misbehavior, they become more brazen and try to get away with more.

    The parents are a big part of the equation, too. If the parents are invested in their student’s success, they will not tolerate inappropriate behavior. If the are drunk, high, absent, or indifferent, count on more bad behavior from the student in an attempt to get the parent’s attention.

    So what does the BGI want to say to the parents of black students who want to learn but can’t because the disruptive students are not dealt with, removed from the classroom, or forced by the school, the parents, or LE to comport to a level of behavior that allows the students who want to learn the atmosphere in which to do so?

    How is it not racism when a young black teen who desperately wants to study, say engineering, but knows she HAS to get stellar grades to qualify for scholarships for the tuition she can’t afford cannot get the education she needs because the teachers’ limited time is spent sorting out troublemakers and trying to create quiet and respect in the classroom?

    And I’m sure there are also black kids who wonder–after hearing what the other kids say about their parents’ expectations and reaction to a poor grade–why THEY are not loved enoughed to be punished for not doing their homework, grounded for poor grades, or enrolled in tutoring to help with the math work?

    A child with no rules, no authority over him or her is described as being in a car with no brakes. A gaggle of kids with no brakes can, and do, ride roughshod over the hundreds of kids who WANT to get an education.

    I imagine that teachers in every inner city would like all of the blathering members of the BGI to spend a month teaching in THEIR classrooms. Do they think those same kids who cheer for them at rallies would listen to one darn thing they say as teachers? Give it a try, Reverends S & J. See how far you can get treating hardened, emboldened men/children as delicate Faberge eggs who would one day be scientists and inventors IF their bad behavior is sideswept and more importantly IF the evil white man would not hold them down.

    I guess white teachers demanding order, respect, and passing grades are the new Bull Connors. Irrational demands, irrational actions within the classrooms and ones the BGI will not abide.

    As an afterthought, I remember a neighbor who insisted her first graders use the term “ma’am” when addressing her. Not unusual in the previous decades, as this is the South. Until one day a very angry black father went to the principal to demand the teacher stop, as “Ma’am” and “Sir” were throwbacks to the slavery era. The principal quickly agreed without question.

    This is where we are. Much like the offense at the word “picnic.” If the kids won’t learn, the adults can’t be bothered to learn, and those who DO have an education are hog tied and four fenced then, obviously, the uneducated win. Now we have to watch what they do with alarmingly stupid, ubridled power. Besides, that is, launching juvenile deliquents like missles against innocent schoolkids, teachers, and communities.

Rachel(DD) is a good example, she disrespected the court, lied and was awarded with a full scholarship, she is after all was just a baby, only 19 yrs old, how dare anyone expect her to be respectful and honest. Only racists and haters would expect that child to behave in court. Not sure how she will use the scholarship though, she dropped out of high school. What type of message does that send to all the other 18-19 yr old babies in this world.
    The schools that participate in these diversionary programs are not helping their students by covering up crimes and bad behaviors, they’re setting their students up for failure and a future in a 4×6 cell. Raise any child without consequences and see where he/she ends up.
