farkityfarker: 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?


The military doesn't pay for 'every' procedure or test. VA doctors are NOT known to be the 'cream of the crop'. It's at least possible he has medical bills to be paid, but it does seem unlikely.

RexTalionis: 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.


let him go get a farking public defender like most black teens would have to do then.

They're not the first people ever to receive a death threat (one). But, they are the first I've ever heard of trying to get free money because of it.

Their web site is full of "poor-me" stories about ill health in their old age, and of trying to avoid reporters by living in hotels. Again, I've never heard of anyone trying to get free money because of such situations.

Sucks to be them, but they don't deserve free money. And putting up a "poor-me" website to solicit free money rightly earns them mockery.

The PF9, once buffed and broken in is quite reliable. It'll handle P+ loads and carries 8 rounds. Lots of firepower for a small package. Plus, including holster and extra magazine it'll ring in $350. Perfect for keeping the bad guys away on a budget. Just stay away from the older stuff without knowing the ins and outs of the model. They do stand by their products though, the lifetime warranty is serious business.

Considering the pigs are apt to take any gun they see, carrying an expensive 1911 is stupid.

Limited to veteran care- some conditions have limited resources so putting treatment is your only option if you can't afford treatment. Otherwise, you get regular treatment and rely on your insurance to help out as much as it will.

Meanwhile a third of all homeless people are veterans, and most of the people donating money to this "cause" would probably spit on them before they'd give them any help whatsoever; there are probably a horrifying number of innocent people wasting away in prison after being falsely convicted, but most of them are black and Latino, so fark 'em; there are probably any number of atrocities being committed in Africa, but everybody there is black, so to hell with all that; finally, there's still no cure for cancer. But let's give our hard earned money to the parents of a dimwitted scumbag whose mental issues and gross stupidity has led to the death of an innocent teenager because things are sometimes hard for them.

The police have already proven they will do nothing against the death-threats. The black panthers fit in with the Sons of Obama "narrative" and have not been investigated at all.

Spike Lee re-tweated the threats for farks sake. He should be easy to find, just look for the gigantic mouth.

This can all be easily explained by Foxnews.

Like all real, honest, hard working americans, the Zimmermans deserve whatever assistance they receive from other real americans and the government. They are completely different from the dishonest, lazy, welfare dependant, no tax paying blah people that expect government to pay for everything.

Without doing all the work for you, most bad behavior is a result of impairements to learning in general (also see bad judgement, learning attachment/detatchment, attending to meaning,etc) and not just bad parenting. Children that get out into the world are raised by the world- kids learn to fit in to their world by following social norms of behavior, risk/reward, social interaction. Society will dictate most of the behavior. Bad parenting only applies when the child lives in a bubble and is only exposed to the parent as their only model of behavior. More exposure to the outside world greatly reduces the effect of "bad parenting". Most asocial behavior is part of the individual's mapping and namount of social interaction or good parenting will correct those behaviors.

Please explain your definition of illiteracy other than the occasional incorrect spelling?
I'm also curious about the "crazy asshole" lable you've so decided upon.

Without being a twatwaffle, care to share the work needed to make such a profound diagnosis so that I can get the help I obviously need?

Otherwise- get back under the bridge with the rest of your trolling buddies and STFU.

Did you see the Hannity interview? Just based on Zimmerman's own story, given in a setting that was highly favorable to him and with no cross examination, I would say Martin's actions were entirely justified. He chased after Martin, who first attempted to get away, then turned around to confront the crazy man who was chasing him when he saw that the guy was still following him. "What's your farking problem?" were his exact words, according to Zimmerman. "I don't have a problem," he replied as he reached into his jacket pocket, supposedly to get his cell phone. Consider that: Martin was in a neighborhood he had every right to be in when some random lunatic chased after him, and the lunatic's first action on being confronted is to reach into his jacket pocket- for a gun, perhaps? Of course he attacked him; Zimmerman gave him reason to fear for his life. He was, in fact, standing his ground.

Prior to that interview I was keeping an open mind. Now? Lock him up, throw away the key. I still don't entirely agree with a charge of second degree murder, more like manslaughter in my opinion, but the guy needs to do some serious prison time. He may not have been malicious, but his extreme stupidity got someone killed, and in a just society you don't get to just move on with your life as if nothing ever happened after something like that.

He's not just a veteran, but a retiree (in over 20 years.) They get benefits that ordinary veterans (in for less than that) don't. Sort of like police officers get after 20 years.

Except GZ was the instigator here. HE chased, HE showed aggression first. Trayvon, at first, fled, and then "attacked" as a last resort measure to a perceived threat. Self defense DOES NOT apply when YOU are the aggressor.
