With the progressive socialist democrats, behavior doesn’t appear to matter as much manipulating the statistics for public consumption …
How many people remember the circumstances surrounding Trayvon Martin’s death in Florida. That Trayvon Martin’s alleged criminal activity was never reported to the Miami-Dade Police Department because the Miami-Dade School System police implemented a policy of not reporting crimes involving black students to reduce the numbers of blacks in the criminal justice system.
It appears that Trayvon Martin is alleged to have been found with stolen property, but never brought to the attention of the Miami-Dade Police Department due to a School Police policy of reducing the number of crime reports involving black youngsters. The Miami-Dade School System maintains their own police department independent of the Miami-Dade Police Department.
On October 21st 2011 a burglary took place a few blocks from Krop Senior High School where Trayvon Martin attended. The stolen property outlined in the Miami-Dade Police Report (PD111021-422483) matches the descriptive presented by SRO [School Resource Officer] Dunn in his School Police report 2011-11477.
However, there was ONE big issue. SRO Dunn never filed a criminal report, nor opened a criminal investigation, surrounding the stolen jewelry. Instead, and as a result of pressure from M-DSPD Chief Hurley to avoid criminal reports for black male students, Dunn wrote up the jewelry as “found items”, and transferred them, along with the burglary tool, to the Miami-Dade Police property room where they sat on a shelf unassigned to anyone for investigation.
A separate report of “criminal Mischief” (T-08809) was filed for the additional issue of writing “WTF” on a school locker. [It was the search for the marker used to write the graffiti that led to the backpack search].

Miami-Dade Schools Police Chief Reassigned, District Says -- Police Chief Charles Hurley has been reassigned pending the outcome of an investigation
In one of the letters obtained by NBC 6, a senior detective wrote, "He [Hurley]asked that I reduce the number of arrests I affect of all black juveniles. I told him regardless of the race of an individual; if probable cause existed for an arrest that individual would be arrested. He was not happy with my response to his request."
That detective also claims Hurley orders officers to send students for psychiatric treatment under the Baker Act as opposed to sending them to juvenile detention. The officer says it's an effort to reduce the crime statistics in the district.
"I firmly believe that the crime statistics in my department are being manipulated to show a reduction in crime," he wrote. <Source>
This appears to be a pattern and practice with progressive socialist democrats …
Too Many Black Students Suspended Leads Oakland Schools to Stop Punishment -- Feel free to cuss, mouth off, leave class
Board members of California's Oakland Unified School District unanimously voted on Wednesday to cease suspending students for what they call "willful defiance." Those behaviors can include swearing/yelling at teachers, refusing direct orders, texting, and storming out of class, to name a few.
The reason? Concern that too many black students are being suspended for willful defiance.
Along with suspensions, the new policy will also include bans on expulsions and transfers of students to other schools for multiple infractions.
According to the SFGate, the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights has been investigating Oakland schools' "disproportionate suspensions" for several years. The district signed a voluntary agreement in 2012 that brought in Manhood Development classes for black males to address behavior issues and to begin discussions on "restorative justice." These programs, dubbed "alternative discipline," can cost districts upwards of $2.3 million dollars per school year.
Oakland is joining a handful of other California districts who already have suspension restrictions in place.

Where have we heard this before?
Disproportionate. Restorative Justice. Alternative Discipline. All code words for managing the statistics and implementing the progressive socialist agenda; including supporting the teachers’ unions that are siphoning off money from the classroom and doing everything in their power to protect incompetent teachers or those who have committed criminal acts. Unions who believe they own the public’s students and that allowing voucher programs or charter schools siphons off the money that they believe should flow to their coffers.
Where is all the blather that “it’s for the children?” Where is all of the bafflegab that money is the issue?
The truth is that disruptive black students are more likely to disparage and bully high-achieving blacks who excel at school, avoid outlandish dress and mangled language, or exhibit exemplary behavior. In addition, it is these troublemakers who are more likely to be involved with guns, gangs, and drugs – not an uncommon situation in Oakland, California.
Bottom line …
The progressive socialist democrats have governed the inner cities for decades; with billions of dollars that have gone missing or into the pockets of politically-connected special interests in return for suitable kickbacks (campaign funding) and voter support.
Why do we continue to tolerate these educational charlatans who refuse to test a teacher’s teaching skills or subject-matter knowledge? Why do we allow incompetent teachers to remain in the classroom? Why do we support more funding for a failing school system?
The answer is simple. Money and politics. Politics and money.
The progressive socialist democrats speak about students being able to compete in a global marketplace. But the truth is that the majority of them, the ones that are functional illiterates and who have been failed by the educational system cannot even get a job at the local big box store – the one they don’t want in the community unless it is unionized.
It is time to stand up for the children. Remove these progressive socialist democrats from the school boards that are little more than political stepping stones. Remove these minority asshats that see education through the prism of race, not noting that the children are becoming more illiterate and ill-educated as time goes past.
You want equality.Treat everyone equally and protect them from the corrupt politicians and criminals in our society – be they in public or public school.
