I also believe he sensationalized his story on purpose.

Totally conjecture, but this is how I imagine it. After maybe a couple days, he realized that they forgot about him. He then devises a plan to make them pay for it, so he actually stays quiet and avoids being detected for as long as possible. It doesn't make sense that he can hear the others, and nobody can hear him. It also doesn't seem like natural human survivor behavior to try and kill yourself if you've been forgotten about for five days. He feigns to try killing himself to add more credibility to his pain and suffering to sue for more money.

have you ever purposely tried to get in a collision or do you slam the breaks/evasive driving when something unexpected happens on the road?

lol yeah.... he plotted to do more damage than his partial kidney failure... instead of worrying about living he's like "hey i know i'll start smacking my head on the wall and really fuck myself up that'll learn em... whenever they find me and then I can sue them for money"




as for cutting himself, I think that may have had to do with the meth he took while in the cell, but im not too clear on what exactly transpired in his cell with that bag of meth that he claims was found in there

maybe he had the bag on him and he thought he should try and get rid of it? and due to the lack of water the meth just fucked him up even more and since he was hallucinating he just started cutting himself; who knows


that's all really beside the point though, he shouldn't have been locked up without food/water/contact for 5 days, period.

Hey! Let's lock you in a closet with no food or water and you tell us after 5 days if the insanity you are feeling is real or fake.

Mmm...hand full of urine? Delish!

You are suggesting that he was purposely trying to put himself in a worse position, and thus possibly setting himself for death, so that he could sue IF/WHEN they finally would find him...

How is that any different from purposely trying NOT to avoid an accident in which you would not be at fault in, and thus could get plenty of money for through ICBC? It's the same thing. You'd be risking your life in order to maybe get some money....do you see people doing that? No; so I'm pretty sure a guy wouldn't purposely hide in this jail cell hoping that nobody remembers about him for 5 days.....

It's very different. Not avoiding an accident is a decision that's made in a split second. He had probably at least 2-3 days sitting there alone deciding what to do.

Okay, let me say that I have no idea whether his story is completely legitimate or it's been sensationalized. No doubt it was a terrible situation to be in and that he legitimately suffered, but I just think there's a possibility it didn't have to be as bad as it was, and maybe he made it worse than it was to get more money out of a lawsuit.

Well, you can add this to your conjecture of his motivations.

He's suing...for 20 million.

What an articulate statement.

You don't think it's even within the realm of possibility he sensationalized what actually happened?

It may be with in the realm of possibility.. However, I think you're overestimating your level of sanity when you're locked in a windowless room with hands tied behind your back with no food or drink for two days.
It's *possible* that he faked it all, but I think Majin was trying to say, do you really think someone would go through all of that and still be rational enough to risk their own life by subjecting themselves to starvation and liver failure for the hope of a payout?

I never said he faked it all. I'm just saying maybe it didn't have to be as bad as it was told to be.

Maybe it was even true that the guards couldn't hear him, or maybe even they did hear him and chose to ignore him.

Maybe he really did all he could to get noticed in those five days.

Even if all of that were true, he still could have feigned some aspects like trying to kill himself with his eyeglass lens to make it look even worse.

I guess the only one that knows the truth is himself.

I browsed back and didn't see it. Just consider me like a reality show host updating you on everything that happened before that commercial break, because your memory is so poor from watching tv, you can't remember.

For those that are just joining us, the pee kid is suing for 20 mill

who cares if he sensationalized it? wouldn't you have done the same thing? otherwise the ramifications could be just a slap on the wrist. you want to make it a big deal because IT IS. bottom line... 5days without food/water/facilities is a BIG MISTAKE on the DEA's part.

I personally don't think 20M is much for what the guy had to go through. I mean, he could have easily died if he wasn't discovered.

And imagine the fear he had to go through. I don't think people can pay me enough to go to such extreme.
