Do you people know what kind of life this young man has lived? Do you know this young man asked for help and none was given? Do you know this young man has a terrible drug issue?Did any of you that know him and knew what he was going threw did you ever offer him help? Did you know any of these things ? I'm sure you didn't. When you go into an ER in pain what is the first thing they offer you? Nine times out of ten it's not tylenol it's Norco or Dilaudid anything but good old tylenol. I'm not blaming society I'm sure this young man knows right from wrong and he felt this was the only way to get the help he so needs.So before everyone gets on their high horse stop and think someday,God forbid, this might be your child. What he did was so wrong. Ryan I pray that you now can get the help that you so need.

I think that someone needs to understand the difference between a victim and a criminal. I'll give you a hint; the victim is not Ryan Bodecker. He is the criminal.

The problem with the world today is everybody blames everybody else for their problem. Everytime someone gets in trouble they blame the town or everybody else because they didnt help them. If nobody will help you with your problem then grow a setand help yourself.Even though the ER prescribes the pills does not mean you have to take the pill.If the ER only prescribed Tylenol then everybody will complain that they dont prescribe the heavier stuff.

Most people know the chances of addiction you take before you start using. They teach this in elementary schools all around the country, and parents should always educate them as well. so I have no sympathy for people who choose to abuse drugs. As for the ERs, You have a choice. You can decline narcotics and ask for non-narcotic pain killers.

If he only robbed the place just to get help, then why did he run? I'm sure if he would have waited there, they would have still arrested him.

I'm sorry but if he needed help, somewhere, somehow help could've been found. We've all gone through bad things in life, had bad things happen, experienced pain. Robbery wasn't the answer here no matter how bad the issue is. He did NOT exhaust his options. The last resort could've been calling someone to say "I'm so bad off I may just commit a crime to get what I need". If that fails, then shame on who he called, and still, shame on him for going through with it.
On a side note, I'd think that someone who was in so much physical pain they needed to steal morphine would NOT be someone very apt to go for a run.

You're partially correct, the last time I went to the ER for a pretty serious issue they offered me some type of narcotic pain killer. All I did was tell them no and asked for strong Tylenol so I could go back to work the next morning and that's what I got. Wasn't a hard situation to avoid.

My favorite part of small towns - judgemental hypocrites. And yes, that is sarcasm. I believe this is the young man who was electrocuted a year or so ago. If I remember correctly he almost died and was in a Pittsburgh hospital for weeks. If that is the case, he has survived more pain than those who have criticized him on here combined. Perhaps he has residual pain that has not been properly treated. We have no way of knowing from what little information is provided here. Yes it was wrong but desperate and scared people do desperate things. Remember folks - There but for the grace of God go I.

"He has survived more pain than those who have criticized him on here combined."
Didn't know you knew the situations of everyone posting here.
Good to know.
I don't see any of the above as criticizing the person, but the action he chose, which was wrong. Period.
There's always a better option than addition, and always a better solution to addiction than breaking the law.

Yes I know Ryan well and I don't feel sorry for him at all. He used long before he was electrocuted. Something needs to be done about all those people selling their pills. They obviously don't need them!

Yes subtraction is a much better option than addition.Just ask my bank account.

This is my son. Yes. He had problems. Yes. He was electrocuted and killed instantly. Yes he was on life support for a very long time and during that time he was given massive doses of fentanyl, among other things, to save his life. That's not an excuse. That is a fact. I have tried everything to get him help. I called drug and rehab, mental health, anything I could think of to make him get the help he so needed. The bottom line, he is an adult and I could do NOTHING except stop enabling him which is why he is in jail now. He got out of detox that day and had no ride home. Anyone that really knows Ryan knows what a loving, caring boy he is. He always cared so deeply for other people. I've seen him help strangers. He worked at kwik fill and so many people asked about him after his accident and told me what a wonderful kid he was and how concerned they were for him. And now everyone wants to turn their back on him? I've seen him walk old ladies across the street!! So please, before you go and judge him just remember : this could happen to your son or daughter. When Ryan was 3 years old, blonde hair, beautiful blue eyes, he would hug me and say "I love you sooo much mommy". Would I have ever dreamed he would be where he is now? God no! You guys all see another drug addict, but I see my son. My baby boy. And I love him more than words. He has made mistakes and he will have to pay for them. On his own. But my love for him will always be right here because I am his mother. And because I couldn't have asked for a more respectful, polite, well mannered child. He needs help and support, not bashed. He has a beautiful 7 month old son that needs his dad to be healthy and raise him like Ryan never had. Drugs are a huge problem in this era but also the lack of empathy in our community is just as sickening to me! And for the record, yes, he did have to break the law to get help. When I made all those phone calls last summer that's exactly what they told me. I couldn't believe it. Because he wasn't in trouble legally there was no help. I even said " you mean to tell me he has to break the law or hurt someone before I can get him help?" And the answer was "yes, unfortunately, that's true". I was dumbfounded!! I was watching my son slowly kill himself but as long as he wasn't hurting other people, then it was ok according to all the experts I talked to. And I watched my son die before. Several times. I was not wanting to live that hell again! My family and I got together and did all we could do. We didn't give him money. We didn't give him rides anywhere. We stopped enabling him because that's ALL we could do. I cry everyday with guilt. Hoping I did the right thing. That now he will finally get the help he needs. I haven't seen Ryan since saturday when I dropped him at detox. I haven't talked to him since monday before he left detox. I would ask that if any parent out there that has gone through this could contact me with any advice I would greatly appreciate it.

Please remember Ryan is a human being. He is a son, a brother, a nephew, a grandson, an uncle, a cousin, a husband, a step-father and a father!

If he was just out of Rehab that day, then someone WAS trying to help him. Your right, he is an adult and making adult decisions. The rehab centers cannot force you to stay, so he chose to leave and find a way to get high. Ryan wasn't a bad kid and people aren't bashing him, but people are sick of the drug abuse in their communities and feel the need to bash all abusers. When he was a liitle boy hugging you so tight, you never thought he would go this way in life, but I am sure you wouldn't have wanted to raise him around people who are drug addicts either. As a mother, I understand your need to defend and protect your kids. We all would, but part of protecting is being concerned with whats going on around their communities just like you were at one time. Look at this from all directions and don't accuse people of being judgemental.

Yes people are not bashing him. They are sick of the drugs. His drug problem started way before he was electrocuted. Why isn't the mother lying about it?

How many of you have dealt with addiction personally? How many of you have gone through withdraw? How many of you have watched someone you love go through withdraws? I do not think that any of this is okay. I love Ryan very much and me and my husband did everything we could possibly think to do to help him. Let me just explain this to you because this is how addiction truly is. Ryan wanted help, Ryan reached out several times to a few people, but every time Ryan went to get help the withdraw was so overpowering that he could not see past it. That's how withdraw works! It is physically, mentally, and emotionally painful. It completely takes you over and you cannot do anything about. Our doctors would not make him stay because he had not committed a crime and had not hurt someone else. Why is that? Why is it that he goes voluntarily and they know that he will want to leave in a day or so when he can't stand the withdraw anymore that they can not make him stay. I do not condone anything that Ryan has done, but before all of you sit there and bash all the 'druggies' out there you should stop and think that maybe, just maybe, you do not know the first thing about what these people are going through. Until you have walked a mile in Ryan's, Paula's, his wife's, or me and my husband's shoes then maybe you should keep your negative opinions to yourselves. For those of you out there who have gone through what we are going through then my heart goes out to you and your families. Addiction is a disease, it is a real illness. Once it has you its no longer black and white. You belong to addiction now and its not so easy to just say no more. So all I'm saying is have some compassion for those of us who deal with up close and personal, because had we just kept enabling him until he overdosed then we would be getting bashed for enabling him.
