Frank Taaffe's Son Killed in car accident

Vincent "Vince" Taaffee
Vincent Francis Taaffe, the son of Frank Taaffe who is an outspoken friend of George Zimmerman, was killed today after crashing off an Ormond Beach-area roadway early Friday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Orlando Sentinel:
Troopers said in a statement that the pair were southbound on John Anderson Highway approaching a right-hand curve to Walter Boardman Lane when in a 2004 Jeep when the 30-year-old driver Vincent Francis Taaffe "failed to negotiate the curve."
The Jeep went onto the shoulder, troopers say, where it struck a warning sign and a large tree. Taaffe, a resident of DeLand, and his passenger, 31-year-old Everson, Wash., resident Justin Thomas Head, were declared dead at the scene.

Vincent served in Iraq 1st Marine Expeditionary Force.  Many who are commenting on this story are being beyond vile and disgusting.  One comment, on the Orlando Sentinel article, says it all.  Vince was not just Frank Taaffe's son, he fought for his country.

RIP VINCE and JUSTIN, and all the angels and Marines in heaven formed up as Gabriel announced "TWO MORE MARINES REPORTING SIR". My condolences to the TAFFE FAMILY, no parent should ever outlive  a child. It's a shame to go to a combat zone  and survive only to be killed here at home.
Frank lost another son a few years ago to prescription drug overdose.  I am so sorry Frank.  My prayers are with you and your family.
