it is really sad considering it was life insurance money.  I can't imagine how people would act towards you when you just outright win millions. 

 

One also has to wonder what would be gained by him making a formal announcement of paying people's rent.  He wants to be glorified as a saint.  This is not true altruism.

Like I said, your NOT in HIS position of living in the hood and wanting to give your neighbors a hand up.

    I Agree! He wont go broke paying peoples rent. Jack gave $1000+ per week to a single person for drug use.

    From what I read it says he'll pay rent for 2 months. Unless others are reading another article elsewhere What?

    That money's gone fo ever

                  I agree 110%.  You can give someone a free fish every day or teach them how to fish.

                  I get the same routine over books. I have a tendency to give very detailed (free advice which most authors will not do) when someone asks me how to get a book deal  (assuming for the moment they can write) and will even go to the extent to give them a battle plan. But it always comes back to bite me in the behind because they want me to do even more and then do the real work for them too...research, pass on my contacts so they don't have to educate themselves on publishing, etc.  Most of these people only see a potential big $ sign only and don't want to do the hard work. I never hear any of them ever say they want to write because they have a good story to tell or want to share their expertise. At some point, I end up having to tell them to take a hike.

                  Your very right, Look at all the stories here on people who lost it all, ended up dead or in jail, on the streets,

                  He's Mr. Big shot now flapping is mouth off, paying rent for 2 months, really nice gesture, but somewhere, there is someone formulating a plan to get the lions share, there's a dee dee moore waiting in the shadow, 2 months of rent will turn into , we need a car, we need braces, we need a new tv, once he starts the free train, it will just gain speed, a disaster waiting to happen.

                  Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                  For a lead role in a cage?

                    Its the "I don't have any money" suburbanites that would feel entitled and sue him for boating money.

                          never lived in the hood but i've lived in the trailer park. 

                           

                          Like Steve Harvey says, the best thing you can do for poor people is not be one of them.
