Not only that, the defendant was getting $20,000+ for his tuition a year so he can study music. Government money being wasted on this loser so he can get a music degree and pursue a career in what? Plus grants, a rent allowance, ect.. No wonder why this country is broke.
I am all for government aide for college tuition, but they should be paying for degrees our society needs. I love music but this guy has been given over $70,000 in government aide so he can study music.
I have a background in avionics from the Navy and I can't get a penny of free money from the government to pursue an Electronics Engineering degree and I already have over 100 college credits. Maybe I should re-apply for aide after I switch my major to Music studies.
This is exactly what is wrong with my generation and our government does enable this kind of waste.

Well thank you for ruining my mood. lol. This is just another fine example of the result of affirmative action and taxation without representation. First of all this worthless tool will be freeloading off of society for the rest of his meaningless life. I agree with helping people but not enabling people. We as tax payers give a third of what we produce to a government that squanders our contributions on all fronts. Be it the limitless defense budget set aside to combat boogey men that we can't even confirm exist, schools that serve to indoctrinate our children instead of teach them critical thinking and to look at history objectively, or entitlement programs that are almost impossible for a struggling white american family to qualify for but blacks and hispanics are encouraged to stay on and abuse like the fellow in this video. These days as a white middle class american born citizen I am beginning to feel more and more like I am the victim of racial profiling. Why does a black or hispanic guy get a job that a white person is more qualified for simply because the employer needs to call itself an "equal opportunity employer"? Is it really equal if you deny candidates because they are white? Don't get me wrong I am in no way racist and in fact have black family members. Blood relatives. Whom I love dearly. This is not an attack on minorities it is an attack on a system which cherry picks who it helps and who it hinders, all the while the people who contribute and support said system are the least likely to qualify should they ever need to utilize it. It really does disgust me that this guy can go on television announcing that he is robbing the system and no criminal charges are brought about. You just get a very mild light hearted brow beating by an elitist rich snob like Judy who then rules in your favor.
