Tanner's is a wonderful boy who is just starting his life. We won't let injustice keep him from it. People need to know what is happening. And so few know right now. We can change this! We love Tanner!
Almost a year ago, I received a phone call from my father. He had called to tell me my brother was dead.
5 1/2 hours later his flatline started to beat and he grabbed my mother's hand. After a coma and months of physical therapy my family couldn't afford, a different version of my little brother re-emerged.
His brain badly damaged with no short term memory, he had to relearn everything. He tried to grasp what had happened. From what we had been told he had been in a car crash, on his way to play airsoft with 3 of his friends, and they missed a turn barreling into a ravine.
Two of the boys died in crash.
In school, he was always drawn to kids who needed a friend. His best friend from 6th grade through high school suffered severely from Cerebral Palsey. Tanner was always there for him, helping him and making sure no one picked on his friend. Tanner is a photographer too. A really good one.
Just a week ago he received an acceptance into a photography academy in our hometown of Casper, Wyoming. Even in his new state, he has consistently been taking beautiful photos and has been noticed! Three days ago, my Mother received a phone call from the Casper police saying they wanted to take him into questioning concerning the wreck. She brought him in.
He was detained and is in prison awaiting a preliminary hearing Today!
His diagnosed mental state is the equivalent of a 10 to 12 year old. He called my mom at home yesterday: "Mommy, I want to come home." my mother tried to comfort him. "Can you bring me my stuffed animals?" Do you think this boy should be charged with aggrevated vehicular homicide? Please sign this pettition (it won't sell your info) we need to make this heard!
