No one was beat up and there was not blood everywhere. You people don't need to be posting about things you know nothing about. Matt was actually filling in for someone that day. He wasn't trained to work with people like mikey. He was supposed to be working with the younger smaller people but they decided to make him fill in that day. If you knew him you would know he didn't do it. It was an accident. The kid died in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. All the hospitals and medical centers in the area actually refused to take mikey b/c he was hard to handle. So if he was having a heart attack and throwing a fit what can anyone do?? They took a plea-bargin just to get on with their fucking lives and to put it all behind. Matt is innocent. He is one of the most caring individuals you'll ever meet. get the facts before you run your fucking mouths about shit.
You are a dirty filthy mouth person, Why don't you act like you know something instead for acting like a vulgar mouth idiot

Matt was crying because the big baby was going to have to go to prison and face people that would beat him like he done Mike, If he was as good as you say he is he wouldn't be where he is now, He deserved more than what he got. He has been a big spoiled granddaddy's boy, The reason he didn't run his grandfather would have had to forfit his bond and he would have lost his home,, Open you eyes You are a idiot,

I understand that you lost your grandson, i know what it feels like to lose a loved one. It was very sad mikeys passing, but in my heart i know that matt would never do such a thing. Coming after me peronally is not going to solve anything. I know your hurting, but theres nothing i nor anyone else can do to bring him back. You were not there that night and you can only believe what you feel is right. That is the diffrence of our opinions.
Evidently you didn't see the tapes like Mike's family did. If they had changed the charge to murder like they wanted to they could have gotten 45 years insted of 8 years, Why do you think they pleaded guilty It was to get a lesser offence,
Dont comment on something you don't know much about.

Why plead guilty when you are innocent? Well since you seen them. Show them to me, let me make my own judgement.

No one beat anyone, restraints were used, Mike was an aggressive man. Several residents and employees were wounded by him. People were at the wrong place at the wrong time. Mistakes happened, it costed to boys time in prison, and threatens several more. Don't place judgement if you don't know the facts. He who hast not sinned, cast the first stone........
Their mistakes cost Michael his life, he doesn't get a second chance. he is gone but not forgotten.
You need to go by his little grave and get down on your knee's and ask his forgivness and his family's forgivness,, None of the ones charged have ever told the family they are sorry for what they done

I knew Michael Price and his family. When Michael was about 15, his Mom told me that she could not take care of Michael, because he "gets mean" and she could not handle him. Michael was a very big boy, I'm not sure how the young man was supposed to have caused Michaels death, but if his parents could not handle him, how could anyone else???? Maybe the other young man was defending himself.
people are trained to take care of people with behaviors. I met mikey several times. If this young man couldnt do his job in the propper way he needs to be charged. Like i said people are trained to do this work.

I also agree with this post.
He's innocent. For you all who don't know the kind
of person he is shouldn't be posting negative comments on shit you don't know about. Matt is a great person, He's one of the nicest people i've ever met. Would always go out of his way to help his family, or friends.
Yes, it is very sad that Mikey died but, it wasn't Matt's fault.
Try and picture everybody staring at you or whispering behind your back in public about a crime you didn't commit. How would it make you feel?
He shouldn't be in jail. Everyone he loves and who loves him are heartbroken that he's not home.
I don't give a damn what any of you think.
I'd stand up for Matt as will many of my friends.
You should have been there the day Thompson was tried by Jury when all of the films were shown. It was one of the most brutal things i have ever seen, There were setting on Michael, One on his head with his face mashed to the floor, One on his back and one on his feet an legs spproximately between 550 lbs and 600 lbs. I talked to a man thet was there a week later and he told me he could not even sleep for a week afterward, he thought they should have got life in prison.

Well if people and employees were wounded by him and people were at the wrong place at the wrong time then why didn't the CEO step in and do something about it? Those 2 boys had choices.They had the training and if he was so out of control and couldn't handle him then why didn't they just call the police? There was no excuse for what they did. None what so ever.
Maybe those guys that were beating Mike should have gone to work at a day care for infants Maybe they could have handled them. Or they might have beat them to death also
