Drew Carey Pledges $10,000 Reward to Find Perps Behind Cruel ALS Prank


A 15-year-old resident of Bay Village, Ohio, was the target of a sick prank: The boy, who is autistic, thought he was participating in an ALS ice-bucket challenge but had feces and urine dumped on him instead.

Video of the bullying first aired on Fox 8 News Wednesday at the request of the 15-year-old victim's parents. The parents wanted people to see the cruel prank they say high school students pulled on their son.

They said their son thought he was taking the ice bucket challenge to raise money for ALS research, but instead high school students dumped a bucket of human waste and cigarette butts on him.

In response, Cleveland native and Reason Foundation trustee Drew Carey has offered a $10,000 reward to people who uncover the people behind this awful action.

If the Bay Village PD wants to start a reward fund to find who did this, contact me. I'll donate $10k.

  1. I’m convinced that the people responsible will be caught. It’s a only matter of time

    Other than a public shaming, what can be done? Charging them with battery?

    1. Other than a public shaming, what can be done? Charging them with battery?

      A misdemeanor charge of improper disposal of biohazardous waste?

      Then again the EPA hasn’t been too good about that lately.

      1. Without clicking on that link, is that an article about the feces and menstrual blood smeared around by the EPA employees?

        1. Close. A link to several of those articles.

          1. It is depressing that a google search for “EPA shit” leads to instances of EPA employees literally shitting on the floor, rather than partisan rantings about the injustices of the EPA.

      2. And the EPA has a swat team. I think you know where I’m going with this.

    2. The civil litigation is where they could be made to suffer for years to come…


    3. Other than a public shaming, what can be done?

      Give them to Warty.

    4. It’s basically fraud, which results in force. They tricked him into thinking he was consenting to one thing, then turn around and did something else.

      I don’t like defining crime by the state and charging them with battery does no good.

      The principle of the weregild provides a just response i.e. “You fuck with me, I fuck with you.” (proportionately)

      Or the corollary of the golden rule–the karmic rule if you will: “I shall do unto you what you do unto me”

      In other words, since every action has an equal and opposite reaction, the answer is a taste of their own medicine. That’s it, no legal positivism, no trying to find various statues to charge them with. Just the logical application of the principle.

  2. What does autistic have to do with it? Aren’t all kids autistic these days? The new ADD?

    1. It may be just as over diagnosed. It’s a spectrum, and in this case, the kid was possibly severely mentally disabled, or, what would have been called retarded 30 years ago.

      I know that the school yard can be cruel, but it takes a special kind of asshole to dump feces on a trusting, mentally handicapped kid.

      1. A very special kind of asshole that needs a very special ass-kicking.

        1. They’re going to a very special level of hell. A level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theater.

          1. Well, isn’t that special?

          2. I’d have kissed her on the mouth, too.

      2. Is there evidence that the kid was the mentally handicapped variety or was he an asshole who got the diagnosis of autism because he’s an asshole?

        Need moar info.

        It’s a shitty thing to do, but it’s kid shit. Although it’s pushing the kid shit boundary. Punish them. Leave the justice system out of it. I think the parents made a mistake by going public.

        1. was he an asshole who got the diagnosis of autism because he’s an asshole

          Autism is not usually (mis)applied that way. Assholes typically are assigned ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, or borderline personality disorder.

          1. My brother in law has all of those in small doses, as well as being slightly autistic, though I am unclear as to the exact diagnosis of each of these individual traits.

            He is one of the sweetest, most pain-in-the-ass people you’ll ever meet. he’s made me angry enough to turn my face purple sometimes, but he’s never done anything to warrant something like this.

            Fuck those guys, in the ass, prison style.

          2. Autism is not usually (mis)applied that way. Assholes typically are assigned ADHD

            Aspergers which is on the autism spectrum is one that sometimes muddles asshole and mentally disabled. Especially on the high-functioning end of the spectrum.

      3. I’m not sure those assholes were all that special, frankly.


    2. My neices aw bowf vewy autistic.

      they draw, they paint, they do musical theateur

      1. I have ADD. I like shooting guns and blowing shit up.

        1. I like those! I guess I have ADD.

          Should I, like, tell someone?

          1. Just enjoy yourself.

  3. Good for you, Drew Carey.

    This is felony assault and battery, just shy of a South Asia-style HCl acid splash.

    1. This is felony assault and battery

      Is there misdemeanor assault? Is there a difference between assault, and assault and battery? If so, why does this reach the level of assault and battery?

      1. Assault is a threat of harm.

        Battery is actual harm.

        This is battery.

  4. my classmate’s mother makes $81 /hour on the laptop . She has been unemployed for eight months but last month her check was $12594 just working on the laptop for a few hours. why not try here….


  5. Its a rocky road indeed dude.

  6. lol, that dude is SO full of himself.

  7. lol, that dude is SO full of himself.

  8. I think this is a far better “challenge” than getting measely old cold water dumped on your head.

    They should totally change it to feces instead of water. Maybe add some rusty old razor blades or hot cinders to the mix.
