Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, is seeking compensation money from several sources due to the death of her son. But her dead son may still be proven in a court of law to have been beating up George Zimmerman at the time of his shooting.
And that would mean that Fulton's son was not a victim, and thus she is not eligible for any money from state victim's funds.
Unfortunately for the citizens of Florida, however, several state officials have already deemed her eligible and will make an undisclosed amount available to her and her ex-husband before the trial ever occurs.
If Trayvon Martin was the aggressor and George Zimmerman the victim, which appears to be the case when one considers the beat up head of the shooting suspect, then it seems questionable that the youth's mother and father are seeking to gain financially from the situation.
And even more questionable that they are receiving funds before his innocence or guilt is even known--and that the amount is being shrouded in secrecy. Which is especially concerning after a judge took George Zimmerman to task for not disclosing the total of monies he has received.
Why should one person in the case be held to a higher standard than the others?
NBC News reported that the amount of Fulton's claim against the insurance company that insures the Retreat at Twin Lakes--where Zimmerman lived, and which is being sued by Trayvon Martin's mother--is also shrouded in secrecy, and is such a large amount that they can only say it exceeds $75,000.
The insurance policy has a limitation of $1 million dollars, which indicates that the mother of the deceased teen may be shooting for that high dollar amount in her claim.
All in all, it appears that the public outcry about the death of Trayvon Martin may be more money motivated than a push for justice, especially since it appears he beat his shooter before his death.
