Technically they should be the ones paying since it was their son who was in the wrong.
Check it out:

The parents of a teenager who was fatally shot by a neighborhood watch volunteer last year have settled a wrongful-death claim against the homeowners association of the Florida subdivision where their son was killed.

The Orlando Sentinel ( http://thesent.nl/YYnBB7 ) reported Friday that an attorney for Trayvon Martin’s parents _ Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin _ filed that paperwork in Seminole County and that portions of it were made available for public review Friday.

According to the newspaper, the settlement amount was marked out in five pages that it reviewed. Lower in the agreement, the parties specify that they will keep the amount confidential.

Sadly, down here close to the event, we have seen that Trayvon's parents finally showed interest in him, only when a profit was involved.....

Even more sad is the loss of this young person's life was utilized by race-addicted opportunists who turned this into yet another black vs white dividing rod (and the shooter wasn't even white!), making a circus out of this tragedy even before the trial.

Obama, in yet another divisive statement, stated "If I had a son he would look like Travon Martin...".

I wonder why Obama didn't make that same statement in regards to seventeen-year-old DeMarquis Elkins, charged as an adult with first-degree murder after he shot a baby in a stroller during an attempted robbery. He was equally "Obama-looking" using Obama's logic. As are scores of victims and shooters in his so-called hometown of Chicago, with the strictest gun laws on the country and neighborhoods so dangerous murder is routine and not even newsworthy.

The truly sad thing about this story isn't the revelation that Trayvon's parents are classless crappy parents, but that an opportunity to bring people together at a tragic time was used as an opportunity to perpetuate a template by people who benefit from the business of racism.

Maybe they know something we don't, and decided to get the cash while they still could?

Agreed, it would only be newsworthy if the races of the shooter's and victims were turned around.

I will admit here, though i support this president overall, i was really let down, when he felt compelled to speak out racially concerning the Martin/Zimmerman situation......

Had the mainstream media reported on that crime, the fanatical members of the NRA would have wailed about them wanting to ban guns.....

Do you think that the two black teenagers that shot the baby in the head purchased that gun legally, and went through a background check?

Doubtful considering they hadn't in any other report of guns in the hands of the wrong people. It's only when you liberal knee jerk opportunists try to use a murder by gun as an excuse to try and pass unconstitutional laws that the NRA rightly speaks out and shuts you down.

Fact is if it was a white kid Zimmerman would have never raised an eyebrow and nothing would have happened. If you don't think race had anything to do with this then you are just another idiot with access to a computer. It's people like you that lower out country's collective IQ.

Zimmerman shouldn't have been able to have a concealed weapon if the police would have done their job a few years earlier when he assaulted the cop! There is no way this anger filled racist should have been walking the streets with concealed weapon. Just another case of not enough gun laws and the need for stricter control over who has then.

We are entering a situation that has been debated thoroughly on this forum, previously.....All evidence so far, including witness accounts show that Trayvon made a fatal mistake, by attacking a man who was armed.....

Fact is if Martin wasn't checking out houses in an area he had no reason to be in, walking around in the rain and simply answered Zimmerman's question instead of attacking him he would still be alive. You may want to check your IQ because blatant facts seem to escape you.

There is nowhere in any part of the entire world where stricter gun laws has reduced crime. Everywhere in the entire world through the history of time stricter gun laws has escaladed crime. So the real question is are you completely stupid or just that ignorant.

A man has a right to defend himself. There is no doubt that Zimmerman is the aggressor here. If he wouldn't have initiated the confrontation there would have been no reason for the altercation and one more human being would be on this planet. Zimmerman went after him simply because he was a black person. If being black justifies someone being profiled and harassed for no good reason then this country has taken a huge step backwards.
