Let me get out my American Ex-pissoff card.

Well, I'm more inclined to care about the sick, elderly parents of a nut-job who had to move around because they were getting death threats. Not enough to send them money, as apples tend no to fall far from the tree, but some.

Consider this: reporting the day after Zimmerman's Hannity interview on FoxNews, Zimmerman's defense fund only received $1500 in donations.

Also consider that of the $300,000 Zimmerman has raised so far, he has spent almost all of it save about $30,000 at around the time of the Hannity interview and that his lawyer confirms that he has not been paid yet and that there were several outstanding debts that would wipe out anything left of what Zimmerman had left.

Also consider that he was demanding that ABC pay for housing for him and his wife in exchange for a Barbara Walters interview because he was strapped for cash. (Walters refused.)

Zimmerman's going to have a lot of financial problems now that he's spent the bulk of what he's raised already on paying off credit card bills and living expenses.

It's like every move this family makes is carefully calculated to cultivate an image of an All-AmericanTM family caught up in some sort of freakish law/media vortex that distorts their innate goodness.
 
2012-08-04 09:49:17 AM  
Wow, it's like a whole clan of grifters.

I'm starting the Buy Me Beer fund.

All proceeds will be used to buy me beer.

Hey, take those suckers for all you can. I'm sure you'll get at least 30 grand out of them.
 
2012-08-04 10:02:26 AM  
How could you not give to this couple who begat such a noble...dare I say it... godlike?... creature as He Who Stood His Ground. Well maybe not HIS ground, but ground that he happened on.
 
2012-08-04 10:05:20 AM  
Violin, etc...

But it raises an interesting point...what is the recourse of a family who has to pay enormous bills brought on solely by an accusation against one of its members, if the family member is indeed innocent?

Can you SLAPP the government?
 
2012-08-04 10:05:57 AM  
Why don't they "Stand Their Ground" and refuse to move? Seems that would cut out a lot of their expenses.

Disgusting people, only other disgusting mongrels would help them.

How does "no" grab ya?

Hold on, let me think about it a 2nd time, so you'll know I've given it careful consideration...

no
 
2012-08-04 10:11:15 AM  
I feel bad for them so I donated. Just enough for a bag of skittles.
 
2012-08-04 10:12:21 AM  
Short answer: no.

You know the rest.
 
2012-08-04 10:13:54 AM  
I'm going to send $25. People threatening the parents of a whack job are the real threat. How stupid can they be? The parents shouldn't be harassed for something they didn't do.

2012-08-04 10:16:48 AM  
What balls on these people. After all that's gone on with that case, to paint themselves as the victim... talk about self-centered.

You deserve $30,000 because someone left you a nasty voicemail message. Your life changed forever on the 26th, Treyvon stole that from you like he stole that candy bar.

Hell, consider this as well:
He was paying off his siblings and sister-in-laws credit card bills as well. The Zimmerman's have been using this to take care of all their problems.

If you were a scumbag "con man" family like the Zimmermans and you saw the way conservative rubes mail off their money to flim flam TV preachers you'd see dollar signs too. Cash in and go shopping for the rest of your drab, boring life.

S.A.S.Q.U.A.T.C.H.: You deserve $30,000 because someone left you a nasty voicemail message?.


If you are an American, you damn well know this is a litigious society. If you aren't American, we are a litigious society.

Yeah. because Liberals never donate to stupid and useless causes.

2012-08-04 10:23:21 AM  
They shouldn't move because of the threats. They should buy a gun and stand their ground!!

/at least in their own house it would be their ground.
 
2012-08-04 10:24:06 AM  

meh...: Why don't they "Stand Their Ground" and refuse to move? Seems that would cut out a lot of their expenses.


Probably cause they aren't the one with a gun going up against an unarmed person in this case. Fair fights are not their forte.
 
2012-08-04 10:24:35 AM  
Yeah, I kinda feel for the parents. It's probably not their fault he's a shiat head, but life is tough and that's why the government has so many teats. Find one and start sucking.

Well they did raise a murdering piece of shiat with a superiority complex....forgive me if my heart doesn't bleed for them. More often than not, shiatty people had shiatty parents.

Why would I donate? I have my own bills to pay. I just think it's childish to blame parents for something their adult child does. I was commenting on how immature farkers are.

There's a big difference between advocating the government help people in need and donating money to people because their son murdered someone.

Nice try at false equivalency though.
 
2012-08-04 10:38:21 AM  
The father is a military retiree (21 years). I was under the impression that they get medical care for life. How does he have medical bills piling up?
 
2012-08-04 10:41:45 AM  
One man disaster area. To Treyvon and his family. To his wife up for perjury. To his parents. At least he's providing us with enough scheudenfreude supply to last us for years.

Yeah, the brand of gun really is the most important issue involved in this whole thing. Good of you to point it out. It hasnt been receiving nearly as much attention as it should.
