I wonder if she aksed for this money before or after she filed copyright privileges for her son’s name.

I also wonder if every parent of a person who bashes a person’s head until it is bloody and breaks their nose and then is shot dead is going to be entitled to some cash.

That’s disgusting. What’s worse is she’ll probably get it.

State victims funds usually wait to establish whether a crime was committed (not just alleged or charged).

Also the alleged victim has to be shown to not have contributed to his injuries.

This claim is premature and probably frivolous.

As for "counseling",she can get that from her personal injury lawyer.And as for crime *victims*,the evidence currently at hand suggests that he was more likely the *perpetrator* of a crime than the *victim* of one.

This was never about ‘justice for Trayvon’ - it was always about the money. If it was about justice, she never would have hired that race-hustling attorney she hired.

The reality is her kid was headed for an early, probably gang-related death. She’s just turned it into a race-based media circus so she can cash in.

No sympathy for her. Sorry.

Can’t she just put her son’s Nobel Peace prize on eBay?

What about those many patents Dr. Trayvon earned - certainly there must be royalties?

Or maybe the reality is that the shakedown from Jesse and Al only lined the pockets of... Jesse and Al?

Perhaps if they had saved some of the cash they used to take their European trip a few weeks back they would be in better financial shape now.

Just sayin’

In a March 29 letter, a claims analyst with the Attorney General's Office notified Fulton that she had been deemed eligible for the compensation benefits. However, no check had been issued to Martin's parents as of early August.

This letter is dated March 29. Hopefully the AG's office by now has all the discovery in the case showing TM as the head banging MMA marijuana-smoking assailant that he was along with the pictures and medical reports of the injuries that his fists caused that night.

If not then perhaps the people of Florida whose taxes fund this will send it to them, and remind the AG that the fund is for "innocent victims of crime" not the perpetrators of assaults. Ignorance of the facts of this case is no excuse -- especially for head in the sand AG Pam Bondi.

Pam Bondi is the one who pushed getting a special prosecutor...and is also friends with Sybrina Fulton’s attorneys Ben Crump and Darryl Parks

Pam Bondi is part of the lynch mob...she is going to make sure TrayMom gets her money

It would be consistent with Zimmerman’s self-defense position, for him to request victim-assistance aid.

sadly.. the verdict has already been handed down. GZ is guilty as charged. The trial is just a formality.

I'm unaware a crime has been committed. If anything, it's Zimmerman that should qualify for a disbursement from this fund.

<>Pam Bondi is part of the lynch mob...she is going to make sure TrayMom gets her money.<>

You’re probably right. Which may explain why the lynch mob’s attempted shakedown of the Home Owners Association’s insurer Travelers has ended up in Federal Court:

She already had donated paid leave granted to her. Now she wants another hand-out for funeral, counseling costs? When has she had time for counseling? She’s been traveling across the country, appearing on TV shows for months now. Nothing but a grifter.

Interesting, if true. Can any of you Florida FReepers confirm or deny these statements?

I think this is only half true, and it implies that she did this for personal gain. She did call for the special prosecutor, and word is that she is “friends” with Crump and Parks inasmuch as she was seen taking pictures with them at fundraisers.

For her sake, I hope this isn’t true. She’s a rising star in the party, but she’s def. a little more left-leaning than your run-of-the-mill TEA partier.

The HOA didn’t buy insurance until March 1st? Oh, my . . .

I see George’s mom and dad have hopped on the “Gimme” train too. I guess their pensions, social security and medical benefits just aren’t enough.

Sure didn't stop Sybrina et Crump from trying to shake down Travelers for February 26th, did it???? Ahhh what's a couple of days or weeks to some swindlers???

I guess their pensions, social security and medical benefits just aren’t enough.

They're not enough when they are driven out of their home by Trayvonista thugs threatening their lives.

But atleast they haven't stooped to the depths of Sybrina et Crump, and they don't travel the circuit carrying trashcans into churches.

Where's that tox report??? and those phone records??? I hope they're being well taken care of.

Oh, they've stooped, but not as low. You're too funny, but okie dokie.

Yeah, I'd sure like to see those phone and text records too. I remember Bernie de la Rionda asking Georgie what he said in a text about Tracy Martin. Humm . . .

I'd be more interested in tox reports if they had tested the killer ... ya know, the guy who's on psycho meds. Smoking a joint isn't a big deal now-a-days.

You ought to go here; I'm sure they'd appreciate your input.

Meanwhile, her son is still dead, and she finds herself in the middle of a media and “justice” circus.

I really hope none of my fellow FReepers ever have to deal with the unnatural death of a family member, through our legal system.
If you ever do, you will find that asking a simple question will result in so many variations of the truth, many egregious lies and evasions, to the point you quickly learn to distrust any answers anyone supposedly in authority offers.

Tread lightly here, those of you who have never walked this path.
And read the last few sentences in this worthless article. The ones that say the parents have not filled out the required paperwork.

Sheesh people!

One side is begging for donations . . . and hiding them.

The other side is giving donations.

Travyon Martin’s parents said any money they get from the state trust fund because of their son’s death will be donated.

You’re joking, right??? donated where??? to their foundation:

http://wearetrayvonmartin.com/index.php/component/content/article?id=10

and who is all the money in their foundation for??? Did you actually read it??? It’s for the Martin Family. It’s not a charity. It’s a sham — a scam.

Fulton hasn’t had time to fill out the paperwork needed to process the claim, said Ben Crump, an attorney for Martin’s parents. She didn’t want to disclose how much she was applying for and what expenses the money would cover, Crump said.

So which is it??? She hasn't had enough time the last 5 months on the trashcan trail or she wanted to do it all on the sly so no one knows???? Out of Crump's mouth to our ears.

No wonder she hasn’t filled out the paperwork and no wonder Crump won’t help her. He doesn’t want to lose his license and she doesn’t want to commit perjury. See section 9:

http://myfloridalegal.com/webfiles.nsf/WF/KGRG-8E4KRV/$file/VictimsCompApp-Eng.pdf

The question is why did Pam Bondi’s office approve this claim on March 29th before Corey charged GZ. Was this premeditated???

I can’t confirm it but it wouldn’t surprise me. I assume she also vetted the disaster of a special prosecutor that Scott appointed. I hope he sees that Bondi blindsided him and will remember that she can’t be fully trusted.
