I think they should put a board between his ankles (like on misery) and take a sledge hammer to him he may not be paralyzed but it would make him wish he was. then he could think about all the people he has wronged and stolen from.

If your going to do that to everyone who is abusing the system in BC, your going to need a lot of lumber.

Abuse of the system seems to be the Norm in Buchanan County.

Not everybody abuses the system.. Some do I agree.. And that fellow was not alone.. His parents enabled him to do that.. Some smart cookie... Also I think he must have had some pretty dumb doctors... Did they just take his word that he was paralized? I wonder about these things. I was under the impression that they test with maybe a pin or something. How did he sneak this by the doctors? did they not run any tests at all? Just wondering....
