Does anyone know the story behind this? http://www.makemikemejor.com/

I am not real clear on the story.

I'm not too fond off the importing of US-style binge drinking culture here either. I see drunk and rowdy kids all the time now and on Sat. at 6 am there was a huge rumblefish-style street fight with about 30 kids in front of my house . Never used to see so many violent and drunk young people here.

Apparently the grandson of Videla and a few other of his rugby mates slashed this guys neck with a broken glass or bottle.

People found him from comparing photos of him and his mates on the night with photos of various BA rugby club websites.

Sad to see the injury was so severe and that he finds himself with a huge medical bill. I hope he recovers fully.

Does anyone know if the attackers were ever brought to justice?

I was wondering this as well. At the time it got a lot of attention, both here and from the pub crawl guys. They identified them from pictures, and one of the dumbasses posted on twitter about it...

The granson of Videla. I guess it runs in the family. I wonder what happened as far as charges too. One of the attackers posted on twitter about it?

There was a thread on here about the attack at the time - I had no idea how bad it was. Maybe one of the pub crawl people can update if there was ever any trial or charges filed. What a tragedy :(

Why didn´t he stay in Argentina where health care is free?
You can't really compare the free healthcare in Argentina to the level of specialized treatment in the US.

You can always earn more money, but you can never get another body. I would spend every dime I had and take on the most debt possible for the most minimal gains in recovering from an incident like that.

He's (Mike) got some relation to the crossfit guys and I have heard random updates from now and then through them. Last I heard that had identified the guy, they knew who it was (I guess this grandson of Videla), but absolutely no justice was served and they never even arrested anyone. Again though this is maybe 2nd- or 3rd-hand information.

I imagine maybe he went back to the US after having recovered slightly to be with his family, and it's the specialist surgeries since the accident that have put him in so much debt. I sent him 50 dollars a couple of weeks ago, hope it helps!

Good on you tez, I just donated too. I wonder if Admin could set up a link to makemikemejor on the homepage to encourage members to help. Or maybe everyone who donates could add their name at the bottom of this thread to bump it up. Sad story, I remember it from a while back, but at least he's alive and doing well!
