Since my every email address is banned from |SHOforum... Someone tell the kid to get a file folder, organize everything and go to the police... Now. The children talking violence and crap have no idea how life really works obviously.
The victim needs to get to the police ASAP. That's it end of story. After the criminal conviction he can sue the guy for all he's worth, with no chance of losing and at the perps expense and if he (the perp) still lives with mommy and daddy or they still claim him on their tax forms they can be found as liable also for aiding and abetting in civil court.
Pain and suffering is collectible and the kid is looking at at least five to six grand in awards right now. i.e., federal level already.
