Wow. This guy sounds really stupid. The Columbian government is probably really happy this guy can't talk, or eat, or puke. Sounds to me like his better option would have been to get a dang ol' job. But what do I know?

ya like i feel bad that he is that poor, but if u dont pay rent obviously you're gunna get kicked out, if you're and american and decided to buy your kids cars instead of paying rent then ya you're going to get kicked out, its not like they're getting treated differently than anyone else would in this situation. I mean can't he get a job or do something to help pay for wat his family needs while paying the rent too?
He is being stupid by sewing his mouth shut and shackling himself in chains, that is just a cry for attention and if he is to die his family will not have him there to buy them more shoes :[ that poor family, they're probably better off without him.
