The things you do to try and reinstate your benefits.
To say that Johhny Licks the gunman who shot dead a security officer and wounded a US marshall on Monday in a Las Vegas court room was pissed would be an understatement. Riled up that his monthly social security benefits had been reduced by $317 because of his race (his idea) Johhny spent the last 2 years fighting the reduction when at the last moment he couldn’t contain himself.
Reports the Las Vegas Sun;
Wicks likely was surprised and upset to learn that his Social Security benefits would be reduced due to the move (from California to Nevada) because he would be losing a “California State Supplement’’ of $317 a month to his federal Social Security benefits.
Wicks of course isn’t stupid because he had this to say:
“Lots of state workers and agencies have taken part in this scam, mainly for old blacks who are not well educated,’’ Wicks charged in the lawsuit, in which he had no attorney and represented himself.
Foley’s report recommended Wicks’ lawsuit be dismissed because Wicks had failed to exhaust the administrative appeals process.
Of course in the end in his frustration to show the courts how asinine they really are (because unlike him they don’t understand all the rules, never mind the rules of shooting and killing other people…) Johhny just flipped.
In the end Johnny Lee Wicks was mortally wounded in the ensuing shoot out.
The moral of the story- being black and uneducated and a touch violent doesn’t go down too well in America.
