Gov benefits @ work
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a convicted killer who gained notoriety for having a murder scene tattooed on his chest received unemployment benefits while he was in jail.
Sheriff's Capt. Mike Parker said Saturday that Anthony Garcia, nicknamed "Chopper," received more than $30,000 in fraudulent unemployment while in Los Angeles County jail from 2008 to 2010.
Parker says Garcia's father and two girlfriends would get the checks then cash them and deposit the money in the inmate accounts of Garcia and fellow gang members.
Garcia's father 47-year-old Juan Garcia, and girlfriends 45-year-old Sandra Jaimez and 25-year-old Cynthia Limas, were arrested Thursday on charges including grand theft.
Parker says authorities have not decided whether to charge Garcia.
He was convicted of the 2004 killing of a gang rival in Pico Rivera. The evidence against him included a tattoo on his chest of the crime scene.
LORDZ take..... wow just wow.... who says crime doesn't pay.
I can already see bleeding hearts say George Bush or some other rhetoric...
So exactly how does a convicted killer imprisoned get unemployment benefits ???
About as sad as the millionaire who kept using his gov-ment bridge card to continue buying food.
So what can we expect from over overfunded over-paid gov-ment ??? more bs.
I know lets house and feed Choppo's father and two girlfriends for the next few years, lets offer them free health care and job training so that next time they can better steal more money.
