So now they are lying because they shouldn't be able to write about it?

They posted their story 3 days after the occurrence, asking for money and help. It has been over a month and I have yet to see any official documents posted anywhere. In fact, other than their TV appearance, and a "thanks for all the money" post, there doesn't seem to be a peep. Kind of strange for folks with such an intardweb presence to keep quite for so long... especially now that they are back in the US. Just sayin...

asking for money and help

Didn't their friends make the donations page for them without their original knowledge.

They said they never asked for money.

Am I wrong?

They have a Facebook page they have been updating: http://www.facebook.com/MegaJed?ref=ts&fref=ts

Why should they update anyone on the internet if they didn't even ask anyone on the internet for money?

All this speculation is just that, speculation.

I prefer to not pass judgement because I don't have all the facts. Neither do any of you.

And yet, through the grace of the Today Show and a 1 sided account repeated over and over, any 'Merkin who saw it already has passed judgement. The Peruvians' unprovoked attacks on perfectly innocent US citizens WILL NOT STAND... mahn.

As someone said on their fb page:

"Is there any chance the US could send in some troops to round up those criminals and arrest them? They need to be held accountable for this crime against America."

Yes, when 'Merkins travel to YOUR village and things get out of hand, YOU have committed a crime against 'Merka.


Pat, that was done by a rock... where have you been? Shut up Donny.

They were on the today show?

It's just me, but I'd never, ever, discuss a traumatic experience on camera for the world to see.

"Pat, that was done by a rock... where have you been? Shut up Donny."

I guess I am referring to this comment:

"The one (dent) on the driver's side is from a rock. But look at the other one... clearly a much broader object caused the one in the middle. I'm guessing it was the dude's head. It all makes sense... a chick was driving (which is why they ended up in the ditch). The dude was sitting in the back, between the seats and bloodied his head when he hit the glass, then banged his jaw against the dash or other person's head."

That's the story that popped into my head and I'm sticking to it.

"Pat, that was done by a rock (referring to a photo of the guys injury)... where have you been? Shut up Donny."

So fair to say this was sarcasm? Fine, the injury doesn't fit the mechanism of action but whatever, tell the story you want to tell. Its easier than having to separate your dislike for three people based on a knee jerk reaction from holding any sort of real consistent morals that apply to everyone.
