WILL DIVISIVE PARTISAN POLITICS KEEP KANSAS CITY FROM CONTRIBUTING TO MEMORIAL FUND FOR THE CHILDREN OF SLAIN BROOKSIDE LAWYER TOM PICKERT?!?

Middle-class debate over gun control and tort reform have overshadowed the consequences of tragic killing in an otherwise nice Kansas City enclave . . . In the meantime, witnesses at the scene say David Jungerman matches the description of the man who killed Mr. Pickert and debate over the legal tactics of the the dead man gunned down in his front yard after walking his children to school has proven to be a much more controversial than the rising quotient of KCMO murder.

For those with a bit of cash to spare, here's more info about the memorial fund . . .

Are you fucking kidding? These kids already have plenty with two professional parents. Sorry for the loss but not contributing to this. These days they collect money needlessly. No mention of collections for families of murder victims on the east side. Theres a real need there. This doesnt pass the mustard.

Doc might have to give a few paid speeches for the drug companies.
Maybe order a few unecessary tests on patients for a while.
They'll be fine.

a charity fund for rich kids?

Democrat greedy weasel trial lawyers be scammin'

even from their graves.

It’s probably not partisan politics that will keep people from contributing to the fund. It’s the sentiment that the fund is not necessary per the perception of affluence of the parents.

How about making a donation in his name to a charity that supports kids whose deceased parents aren't at the top of the proverbial food chain.

Political faction has nothing to do with this; I'm a Democrat and think its ridiculous. It's called being human.

Cash fund for the children of an attorney who recently won a nearly $6M settlement, and their mother is also a physician?

WTF?

I'm sure someone was well-intentioned when setting this up, but most people who know the facts will question the need.

12:23 - I question their need as well but keep in mind that winning and collecting a judgment are two separate things.

^^^ Excellent point. Getting the cash isn't really that easy.

He and his family have been very good to the community, I hope some of the more generous souls will help them!

Fuck this guy and his fund. He fucked with an innocent guy and took his money. People should not be able to sue if they are injured while committing a crime. Should be the same in Kansas too.
