U.S. to Fast Track $29 Million to Help Charleston Shooting Victims' Families

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Justice Department will fast track the sending of $29 million to South Carolina to help families of victims of the mass murder of nine churchgoers at a historic black church in Charleston, a Justice Department spokesman said on Friday.

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 atEmmanuel AME Church, spokesman Kevin Lewis said.

How does that work? The government just throws 3 million per person shot at something? What something? Where is that money coming from? What fund? What is the goal besides waste? There are no riots. When did we start giving lottery sized "donations" to the victims families and why?

This is getting ridiculous.

I didn't know people could collect money from the DOJ for being married?? What about white people? Are they eligible to be compensated by the DOJ for being murdered by a black thug.
