Guess What Chris Kyle’s Killer Is Still Getting?

How can he be getting $2800/mo? I have a permanent, service-connected disability, too, and only get $130/mo.

During the trial of Eddie Ray Routh, a surprising fact came to light while Routh’s mother testified: the VA has classified him as disabled, and he is still getting $2,800 in monthly benefits.

That he had been treated by the VA and released, despite being diagnosed with schizophrenia and PTSD, was not new information. Routh’s parents have been managing an account that contains the money he’s received over the two years he’s been in custody.

If convicted of murder, the benefits will be reduced by 90% and Routh will receive $280 a month.

Technically… he’s innocent until proven guilty, so I can understand him still getting the payouts right now, although they should be reduced. If he’s convicted, they should cease completely.
