    PHOENIX —Arizona will pay a total of $670,000 to the families of the 19 elite firefighters killed in the country's deadliest wildfire in 80 years and has agreed to reform the way it fights wildfires, state officials said.

    Under two agreements, the state will pay $50,000 to each of a dozen families to settle their wrongful death lawsuit filed last year stemming from the deaths of the 19 men.

    Another $10,000 will be paid to each family of the other seven firefighters who died in the Yarnell Hill Fire in June 2013.

    On 19 June 2015, a Department of Justice (DOJ) spokesman confirmed to Reuters that the agency would “fast track the sending of $29 million to South Carolina” to the families of the victims of the 17 June 2015 Charleston church shooting. The news was reported in an article that was exceptionally brief at two sentences long:

    Whatever get's the most media attention will bring up the most cash. Oh and it helps when you have Jesus on your side i suppose. Disgusted with humanity once more.

    The firefighters should have gotten more attention.

    Why do the families of the (Charleston) dead become instant millionaires?

    What the hell good is $10,000 to the family of a dead firefighter? That'll last a couple of months.


    So I'm sure that our government is being uniform and fair, RIGHT? The dead from the Colorado movie theater shooting all got millions, too.....RIGHT? Sandy Hook families....now rich, also?



    Please tell me that the Charleston families didn't get rich for being black. I see the amounts disbursed for each event, and the Charleston amount dwarfs the other amounts.

    :rolleyes:

    The Federal Government or the DOJ did not seem to concern itself with 19 dead firefighters.

    I'm just amazed at how quickly our Federal government throws around money these days.

    We have plenty of money available to fix our nation's finances AND our infrastructure. We just need responsible people holding the checkbook.

    29 million divided by how many people?

    Fucking bullshit...

    It'll all be spent within a generation.

    Like most nutty right wing retards, you forgot to add all the information...

    "An unspecified portion of the money, allocated under the government's national Crime Victim Assistance Formula Grant program, can be used to provide services to the families of victims of the shootings at Emmanuel AME Church"

    So the money isn't going directly to the families... go it.:up:

    I do find it interesting that the DOJ will spend endless amounts of taxpayer money on fighting the State of Arizona when they wanted photo ID to keep their elections honest, but not one penny of taxpayer money for the families of these heroic firefighters in that State.

    What do you think of that?

    Can these millions count toward the impending Reparations tax?
