So sad:

George Zimmerman has no job, no home, no income but spends $100 a month on vacations and $200 a month on psychological counseling, according to a financial affidavit he recently filed in his divorce case.

Zimmerman, 30, is the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer acquitted last year of murdering Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old.

Immediately after the shooting – Feb. 26, 2012 – he quit his job and went into hiding with his wife, Shellie, but two months after his acquittal, she filed for divorce, saying he had taken to the road and would not tell her where he was and what he was doing.

As part of the divorce case, Zimmerman filed a financial affidavit last week, spelling out his income, assets and debts.

He listed his total assets at $14,000 – most of that is his 2008 Honda pickup. His debts total $2.5 million, most of that is money he owes criminal defense attorneys Mark O’Mara and Don West.

According to his paperwork, Zimmerman has no job, pays nothing for rent or a mortgage and has no health insurance.

He spends $350 a month for medical care plus $200 a month for psychological, psychiatric or mental health counseling.

He also spends $100 a month on vacations, he wrote.

Zimmerman’s legal defense fund, which raised more than $400,000, now has a balance of $300, according to the affidavit.

It is not clear what happened to any money he earned from the sale of a painting on eBay in December. The winning bid was $100,000. There is no mention of it in his affidavit.

His banking account has $650, he reported.

This makes me happy.

    $350 per month in medical care, excluding psych treatment? Here’s hoping that’s to treat a particularly nasty case of genital warts.

    Well where are the wingnuts offering him a post in their welfare circuit? I mean come on, he was the poster child for Stand Your Ground laws and making sure “dem negroes” know their place. You’d think for all their original support they’d put him on a pedestal, not just abandon his sorry ass. Not that he deserves their help, just surprised that the RW loons moved on to their next shiny.

    @ronin122: I think they were happy to early on. The visit to the gun manufacturer seems to have been a turning point, shifting public perception over a line from ‘self defense’ to ‘ammosexual’. That and the fundraisers to buy him guns seem to have made him politically untouchable.

    Zimmerman has specific history about that – didn’t Shellie wind up taking a perjury rap for lying to keep him eligible for a PD. It would pretty reckless for him to take that chance again, in other words completely in character.

    @Jim, Foolish Literalist: their whole defense was to sh*t all over Trayvon Martin, & completely destroy his memory. It would be justice if their firm went under, but of course it won’t.

    Carrying that stupid slab of concrete into court & saying ” Trayvon was armed with this” was so stupid, but apparently effective. So infuriating.

    That was the turning point for me.
    My opinion went from ‘situation escalated out of control due to his actions, but he had no intent to kill’ to ‘the motherfuck started the confrontation wanting an excuse to use his gun’.

    @Schlemizel:

    There is a logic to that thought, but as you noted there are significant legal, moral, economic, and psychological issues that someone who kills another, even if it’s totally justified self defence, has to deal with .

    Unless you’re a sociopath. Then you don’t care about the moral, ethical, and psych issues.

    There are reasons why cops who shoot someone get mandatory time off and psychological counseling.

    I’m not sure it means he actually takes a $100 vacation every month. It could mean that he takes a week’s vacation once a year and spends around $1200 on it.

    But now I think about it, I doubt he’s smart enough to grapple with the concept of “budgeting.”

    Nobody in their right mind would extend a $2.5 million line of credit to someone like him, and actually expect to get paid. And I’m just talking about ability to pay, not character. I suspect they did it for the publicity, and probably with the expectation of writing most or all of it off as a loss on their taxes. Wonder if they’re just waiting to forgive his debt until after the divorce, so he can hang onto both halves of that $650.

    Just saw this story, how does this not violate the doctors’ contracts with the insurors?

    After being without health insurance for two years, Miranda Childe of Hallandale Beach found a plan she could afford with financial aid from the government using the Affordable Care Act’s exchange.

    Childe, 60, bought an HMO plan from Humana, one of the nation’s largest health insurance companies, and received a membership card in time for her coverage to kick in on May 1st.

    But instead of being able to pick a primary care physician to coordinate her healthcare, Childe says she repeatedly ran into closed doors from South Florida doctors who are listed in her plan’s provider network but refused to see patients who bought their coverage on the ACA exchange.

    “I just felt that I wasn’t being treated like a first-class citizen,’’ said Childe, who eventually found a doctor with the help of a Humana counselor. “Nobody, I don’t care what kind of degrees they have, should ever be treated that way.’’

    Nearly one million Floridians enrolled in a private health plan through the ACA exchange but some, like Childe, are finding that some physicians refuse to honor their coverage — even when the doctors are included in the plan’s provider network.

    Some physicians say they’re concerned they won’t be paid for their services by either the insurer or the patient, and that insurers are not adequately informing doctors of their inclusion in exchange plan networks.

    “You don’t want to be in a situation where you provide service, and turn around and there’s no contract in place to reimburse you,’’ said Jay Millson, executive vice president of the Florida Academy of Family Physicians.

    For some patients, though, the elation they felt about being insured has been tempered with rejection at doctors’ offices.

    Sal Morales, 48, of Kendall, said a physician and her staff humiliated him when he tried to make an appointment at her Hialeah office earlier this year.

    Stories get even worse. Doctors are so fucking ignorant sometimes.

    @Schlemizel: Marc MacYoung has been preaching that for years. He just released a new book on the legalities of self-defense. I haven’t read it yet but it’s in the pile. The main point is that if you keep weapons, study a killing art, or both it behooves you to be conversant with the self-defense laws of your state. I myself have never had to use a weapon, although I do own a Chicago burglar alarm. It plays the sound of a shell being jacked into a 12-gauge–alarms burglars no end! Grin.

    Zimmerman’s travails would make the material for a really good blues song “Just Can’t Do No Right”.

    Where is his good buddy Sean Hannity? Surely Sean will help a brother out, seeing as he took him up as a cause when ol George was good for ratings.

    One observation is that none of our taxes are being used to pay for his incarceration. The guy probably is suffering much worse than if he was in jail, I reckon.

    @ASV: the way those financial affidavits work, it’s like any yearly household budget, you take your annual estimate and divide by 12. Assuming once a year you fly to visit your mom, $1200 wouldn’t be out of line for most people I guess …

    … Of course, this is GZ, so, ..

    @Betsy: ETA:

    Or, I could just read all the comments one time and divide by 12 to get the number of times people have already made the same observation by the time I pile on … * sigh *

    He spends his time “on the road,” has no income or assets, but has $650 a month in listed expenses, which do not include food, clothing, lodging, or anything of the sort?

    First, yes, this is an obvious fabrication for divorce purposes. Secondly, even the destitute have to eat sometimes, and sleep somewhere, and even if he were living in his truck he’d still need money.

    Someone is supporting him, and in all likelihood several someones. I suspect there is an underground circuit of GZ “fans” who are underwriting whatever his real expenses are … people who are comfortable in white robes and pointy hats, and think GZ performed a public service. So no, this does not make me happy. Not at all.

    @Gene108:

    I am assuming the money is stashed somewhere. I doubt anyone is truly honest on disclosure of assets in a divorce.

    My first reaction, too: This, like most things conservative heroes say, is bullshit.

    @Glocksman: I would imagine there are some long-term consequences of killing another human being, even in self-defense. I guess I even hope there would be, for any healthy human being. Sure, military works to get you over that cultural taboo, so you can shoot and slice and stab with abandon, and stay alive yourself. My sense is, lots of soldiers have some guilt about it. As a nation, we are mostly okay with the psychological price they pay.

    The only time we need to worry about guilt for ending a life is when an innocent , foolish, woman aborts her full-grown human fetus. She might suffer for her choice to stay alive, and we want to save her from that by forcing delivery.

    Sorry, there are times when this country drives me insane.

    If I could believe one word that comes out of that lying psychopath’s mouth, I would be happy. But it’s for certains that Zimmerman’s financial statement is as much science fiction as any other sad sob story he’s ever come up with for why he’s the victim, not the perpetrator, of whatever assholery he’s currently manufactured for himself.
