MORE TO COME…
How can u say that Austin wouldn’t hurt a fly he killed a young man leave n only his body to live that’s the dumbest thing I’ve herd an as far as u say n “If it makes us feel better to call him a monster” if the shoe fits lace that mother fucker up an wear it cause that’s exactly wat he is …..
How is Austin a scapegoat? He made a conscious decision to kick Ryan, who was already on the ground and unconscious, in the head. Why don’t you, as a family, set up a trust fund to help with the Diviney family with the expenses they are saddled with because of Austin Vantrease’s actions. The picture posted on your Facebook page shows a good looking family. I wonder if a day goes by that any of you think about what the Diviney family picture looks like since the day Austin kicked Ryan in the head. Rather than trying to make excuses, say you are sorry and help the Diviney family.
The young man that was kicked in the head when already unconscious is still fighting for his life. I read that he is back in the hospital fighting MRSA. Austin Vantrease should be forced to pay restitution to this family for all the expense that they have incurred. They is NO excuse for his actions!
To AV family,
I understand you love your son. Nobody doubts that, but wake up! Your child did a TERRIBLE, Terrible thing and he needs to make restitution. Your family could do more than just sweep it under the rug and move on… You could assist in raising funds for Ryan. Something!
Wrong is wrong. You wouldn’t believe how far an honest and heartfelt apology can go. I would be on my knees BEGGING Ryan’s family forgiveness. What is wrong with you?!?!?
You people should be ashamed, the video clearly shows this heartless pos kicking Ryan in the head when he’s already unconscious!
Lady we’re not calling your brat a monster you raised him to be a monster!
Now that Ryan has died from his injuries your son needs to be jailed for murder!
