Walking into the Diviney residence, it’s as if someone cobbled together the major features of a hospital ward into a typical family home. At the doorway, guests are greeted by a small wheelchair ramp. Once inside, a hospital bed and physical therapy table are immediately noticeable, as is a dining room piled high with laundry and medical supplies. The kitchen is likewise stocked with everything Ken Diviney needs to care for his son Ryan, who was severely beaten outside a West Virginia convenience store in 2009.

Something that bugs me. Have the parents of the kids who did this to Ryan been help accountable for their kids actions; I mean financially. Also what law suits will be leveled against the idiots who did this.
Yes, this bothers me too. The parents and convicts haven’t paid a red cent, despite court order.
What about garnishing their pay or a lien on the house! Can you get a collection agency to constantly call their house and work. Can they be arrested for ignoring a court order. There has to be someway of getting them to start paying. Here is an idea. In a village not far from me a home was vandalized while owner’s were on vacation. They put a gigantic sign on their front lawn stating what happened and how. It is all legal because it is far enough from the street. Not much different than a politicians sign during elections. Do that!
I like the way you think!
