Yesterday, Tony Mead posted on his Facebook page a YouTube video of 15-year-old Kyle Laman, one of the wounded in the February 14 mass shooting incident at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
See Mead’s guest post of January 17, 2018: “Satanic Pedophilia Within Our Society”.
If you go to the link of Mead’s post, you now get this message:
So what was so offensive about Tony Mead’s post?
This is the NBC Today news video that Mead posted:
As Americans, whose exercise of free speech is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, we respectfully ask the following four questions about the NBC news video:
(1) NBC reporter Kerry Sanders said “a round of AR-15 tore through” Kyle Laman’s ankle.
New Health Advisor has a page, “Can I Walk on Fractured Ankle”. A fractured ankle is defined as “when a bone at or near the ankle joint breaks.” Kyle Laman’s ankle was more than fractured, having been “torn through” by “a round of AR-15”. Kyle Laman’s ankle was shattered.
In the case of a fractured ankle, New Health Advisor says:
“It is usually very difficult to put weight on your fractured ankle and you should not put any weight on your broken ankle for the first few weeks at least (most commonly 6-8 weeks). Just walk with assistance and shifting weight to the good foot . . . . Some people even feel dizzy or sick mainly due to the pain and shock of breaking their ankle.“
In Kyle Laman’s case, his ankle had just been “torn through” by “a round of AR-15”. How did he manage to not only walk, but “run down three flights of stairs”? He even had the presence of mind to give authorities a “complete description” of the shooter — what the shooter was wearing, and even the type of weapon he was using.
Here’s a closeup of Kyle Laman’s ankle wound — a vivid visual of how his ankle literally was “torn through” by “a round of AR-15”. This makes it even more unbelievable that he could have “run down three flights of stairs”.

(2) According to New Health Advisor, a fractured ankle is treated with a plaster cast — “It is important to put your fractured ankle in a plaster cast for at least six weeks“.
In the NBC Today video, which was published to YouTube on March 2, 2018, just 16 days after Kyle Laman’s ankle had been “torn through” by “a round of AR-15,” his shattered — not fractured — ankle is not in a plaster cast. Instead, in the screenshot below, from the 0:41 mark in the video, Laman’s leg is fitted with what appears to be a metal leg-stabilizer.
Below are two closeups of Laman’s wounded ankle between those metal braces or stabilizer (source: TMZ). Is this the way to treat a “torn through” ankle? I would appreciate the expert opinion of readers with orthopedic surgical knowledge.
(3) The above image is curious for another reason — Laman’s foot doesn’t seem to have toe nails. Why’s that?
I’ve cropped the image and enlarged it:
Is the foot a prosthetic?
Below is another closeup of Laman’s injured foot at an earlier time, which I’d cropped and enlarged from a CBS Miami pic (h/t yyz:
(4) Then there is the matter of Laman’s wandering wounded leg.
Here’s a screenshot I took at the 0:12 mark, showing Laman’s wounded leg to be his right leg:
But in the screenshot below, at the 1:56 mark, the curvature of Laman’s body suggests the wounded leg is now his left leg. I had to really slow down the video in order to grab that screenshot because right after the camera shows Laman’s wounded left leg, it quickly cuts away.
There is a Go Fund Me soliciting donations for Kyle Laman, with a goal of raising $50,000. As of this morning, $38,820 have been donated.
There is also a GoFundMe campaign created by the Broward Education Foundation, with a goal of $3 million, which will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families, including Kyle Laman. As of the afternoon of March 10, 2018, $2,779,740 have been donated.
