      well, not if it was in a will. but, even if he could still get it, a lot good its gonna do him in prison. but of course, his attorneys will use up most of it. can you hear the defense, mental issues or or or, self defense from a dead man who can’t argue it wasn’t.

    another trust fund baby who worked so hard to get where he was at, just could`t wait that little longer to have it all.
    but after all he did work his butt off and sweat his way though a career to be able to received his hard earn trust money.

    i don’t get people like this. i am about as “broke as a joke” and nothing really, regarding monetary. that being said, i have always told him (he’s such an awesome and sweetheart of a kid) that if anything happened to me, everything from my curlers on top of my head, to the nail polish i put on my toes, belongs to him. EVERYTHING. its easy to feel comfort in that decision because, he’s my heart and he’s a great kid. and, he’s not a greedy child period. just because i can give him what he wants, doesn’t mean he can have it, especially when he doesn’t NEED it. but, i sometimes, even when i have the money for a want even though he didn’t need it, i give. considering i couldn’t afford a x-mas for him, and for him to say, no problem, love was enough, that’s a kid with understanding and compassion. i’m very lucky.

    it doesn’t get any worse then this
    First of all this shooter is a Princeton university grad who sits at home soaking his rich daddy for allowance cash @ $400.00 a week ( $ 200 before junior went full retard ) If that isn’t bad enough junior, who’s 30 yrs old sends his mother out for a sandwich so he could knock off daddy
    Last I heard this simpleton might get off with only manslaughter So expect him to be your boss someday as our educational system dictates who’s colleges prepare their grads the best to lead this country
    No wonder we are 19 trillion in the hole and sinking fast Our government is filled with idiots like this clown Truly pathetic !
