    I hope it was expensive... Some people are slow learners and Mr. Lee seems to be in that category.

    "He was really kind," Elaine McClain said. "And when he called us, you could just tell he really felt bad about it. And it was just a slip, and I just know that he really, really has been concerned."

    As soon as she shut the door after that quote and after cashing the check, I hope her and her hubby were rolling on the floor laughing their asses off.

    Wow, that was really fast. You know Lee's first reaction was, "Sheeeet, I ain't giving them (white expletive deleted) nuttin!!". Lawyers must have sat him down told him, "Listen you stupid SOB, this goes to trial and you're toast". I hope they took the racist moron for 7 figures at least.

    He made a mistake, owned up to it, personally called and apologized, and made restitution. He manned up in this case. I still don't like him, think he is a race baiter, and he showed (and continues to show) bad judgement. He should of done so sooner.

    Moral of the story is if they have the cash, people can pretty much do as they please. If offered enough cash, people will accept just about anything. Nothing new here.

    Very true. But that's the only recourse the couple had. He wasn't going to be charged with a crime. The only option they had was a civil suit.

    Imagine if that was your elderly parents.
    You stand outside all night looking at every car that comes past hoping it isn't someone comming to deliver some payback for a crime your parents never commited.
    He is a racisit and a fool, I wish someone would have got to them first and did a pro bono case just to drag his skinny butt to account for this crap he does.
    Where is the outrage?

    All saved up for poor, little, innocent Trayvon. He meant no harm to anyone while he was beating that guy's head in against concrete.....

    The big sad part to this whole debacale is that, both sides, no matter who is right or wrong are making victims. The whoring media is to blame, it gives voice to fools.

    You can just see it.

    Publicist/Atty: Spike. You gotta fix this. You screwed up!

    Spike: I'm not gonna give no MF money or no MF apology to no MF whities.

    Publicist/Atty: Spike. Do you want the last 3 people that watch your films to stop?

    Spike: Fine. What's their phone number.

    Wanna bet? Don't know how to find out but he's a racist, arrogant, vitriolic pos and I'm sure his first reaction wasn't, "Oh dear, yes, I was out of line. Find out what would make those dear gentle people feel compensated. And give them my sincerest apologies for the unintended error".

    He didn't make a mistake. He intentionally tweeted that address hoping someone else would do what he was too much of a wuss to go do himself.

    His intention was the same regardless of the address.
