We did it folks! Today’s edition of the Delaware’s leading online news source is running an article, Lawsuit Filed by Attacked Student’s Parents, about the civil suit filed against the six men (I use “men” lightly) involved in Ryan’s brutal beating. Finally, this news is in their own backyard. This will likely hit them where it hurts. No more obscurity and flying under the radar. They now will likely question if people recognize them every time they leave their home. I wonder if they will feel the shame as most everyone else would?
Please, take a few minutes to read it. Comment if you wish, but I ask that you keep it about the topic. In other words, this is not about the Phillies, or people from the Philadelpia/Newark, DE area. I’m a realist and know there will (probably) be many inane comments from people/relatives taking an opposing view. No need for me to engage is senseless banter.

I’m telling you, I just shook my overly hairy head when I read the statement from May’s attorney, Ray Yackel. He said “his client is overwhelmed with remorse and since his release from prison ‘has not had the opportunity to work or provide restitution.’ Really? Is he serious? I kid you not, read the article… he actually makes this statement. Has he ever heard of a yard sale? What is preventing Jonathan May from holding a fundraiser? Hell, bake cookies and sit outside the Kroger supermarket selling them. Maybe bring your fighting buddies along with you. How about going door-to-door seeking donations? To me, these suggestions are nowhere close to being above a common, convicted batterer’s dignity. Well, what dignity might exist, I suppose.
