Looks like he has more holes from body piercing than the wreck.

Good way to talk about someone who was hit by a vehicle and left in the middle of the road. Who cares about the piercings, that doesn't mean that this kinda of things should have happened to him!!!!!!!!!!

What do you mean who cares about the piercings? In my experience as a well-educated Mormon man most people with piercings are immoral minorities.

OMG - what kind of people are you that you're more concerned with piercings than you are with this man's life?! This is crazy! I hope if something like this ever happens to you you find out what it's like to have people judge how you look instead of being concerned if you lived or died. Wow - how Christian of you!

Just beacuse someone has piercings does not mean that they deserve to be hit by a car and left for dead! Who are you to judge a book by it's cover and say that because of his looks he is an immoral person? This man was hit by a car.. and they person who did it left him and did not even stop!! NO ONE deserves that to happen to them, no matter religion, skin color, age, gender, or style. Grow up and stop judging others and have some sympathy, or do they not allow that in the religion you practice?? Thank god he was ok, and i hope that they find the person who did this to him.

Jaycee, I agree with you 100%. How can these people preach about their religion, and then judge other people, as if they were God themselves. What gives you people the right to judge anyone. Try looking in the mirror before you comment on someone you do not even know.

If he had of died then he'd been worried about religion,it is a shame that the love for our fellow man,has waxed so cold that one would do such a thing. my question is, was the driver drunk or talking on a cell phone? what did he have to hide? did he run the man down for kicks? or maybe a religious fanatic who did not like ear/body rings?irresponsable people in our society . may that victim have a fast and speedy recovery.

Thank you everyone who responded on this.... This is my husband who was hit by the car... last nite after this aired i saw the comments that were being left and it really drove me insane.... my husband was less than 5 mins. walking time away from our house and this fool hit him and left him lying on the street, my husband's first instinct was his familt we have 4 boys at home and he could only think i need to get home to my family so he tried crawling but realized that he was hurt too bad to crawl home...So how dare anyone judge him on the way he looks he is a man with a family that loves him very much and he didnt deserve this at all... My husband has alot of problems now and we have no clue how long this will go on for.. and you say cause of the piercings he deserved this... I DONT THINK SO!!! I am a body piercer and that doesnt mean i should be looked at any different than the rest of you and neither should he!!!!!

There were just a couple of idiots who don't have hearts that posted the negative comments. I've got to believe that most people would be horrified at what happened to your husband. God bless all of you and I pray that he will recover very soon.

Hi, This is Dennis's mom again. Why is everyone judging the victim? Why is the victim always wrong, why, because of the system.

Why hasn't anyone asked about the driver of the car, was he or she drunk, did they hit another person, will they get away with it again,

Hey you out there, do you know what you did to my son and his family,

Do you even care? The problem is they drink and drive, and get away with it , and they keep on doing it, this is the system again,

I don't want to talk about the victim, i want to talk about the person who did this,

I know the victom Dennis Stumper Jr, He is my son, I want to know who did this,

What about the rest of you out there, aren't you concerned for you and your family, this could happen to your son or daughter, or your mom and dad, and they could get killed.

What do you think about this, Cause it has happened in the family, DJ's Uncle Ron was 37 years old and killed by a drunk driver, Dennis is 30 years old, he was able to talk to his wife and kids, Ron wasn't, Will these people keep getting their licenses back, and keep driving, a keep getting a slap on the wrist,

Dennis and his family will never be the same, I know I am not the same since this happened to my son, and I want the person to come out and say, I hit your son, I am responsible, I was drunk, or I wasn't drunk, I was wrong for leaving the scene of the accident, your son could have been killed, and left his 4 sons and his wife,

Come on who are you, are you ready to face this whole family, and say i did this to Dennis, no you aren't, cause you know who you are and you were wrong, doesn't every one agree,

This isn't about piercings, a human being my son was hit by a car, so what if he is pierced, or tatooed, he was hit by a car, now lets get some comments, and please rate mine, Thanks for letting me give my opinion,

My sister and her son were never the same since they lost their loved one,

I know this is different, but i want to know what was the person thinking, when they kept going, what are they gonna say to Dennis , Kelly and his children, when they come forward,
Thanks again, Linda A Stumper, of Lexington, NC

Sorry that Dennis got hurt and the issue was not piercings. However they are designed to be bring attention to the person with them. That attention can be negative or positive depending on the person viewing them. My opinion is that they remind me of images in National Geographic OF natives in Africa.
Bottom line is that if you are going to draw attention to yourself then be prepared for it.

Piercings are no longer a minority, how many people in this world now a days have piercings! I mean i dont understand you people all your concerned with here are piercings and tattoos when a human ws hit by a car and left for dead, you people have some nerve to talk about the little things..JUST PLAIN OUT STUPID if you ask me.. Thank God my husband has somewhat recovered from the accident and will continue to get his piercings and tattoos, and to those who are so hung up on it we are all the same and my husband and I dont judge others for there uniqueness but yet you are so what does that say about you!

That is the spirit!!! Get them tats and holes. I assume that the medical bills and loss of income have all been taken care of since there is money for the finer things in life.

Well educated?..In what?..What is the definition of immoral?
Immoral - deliberately violating accepted principles of right and wrong .. Who are you to judge anyone or to decide whats immoral or whats not? I thought Mormon teachings teach " Do not judge others that do not believe the same way they do. And this is what Jesus Christ Taught. Jesus taught the truth!"?

You might want to go to attend a reprogram meeting and leave your cult because evidently you havent learned anything morman like.
