Holly Benton Wickersham  JANESVILLE, WI

Hi I'm trying to raise money for my friends Bou and Alecia for their baby who is in intensive care in Atlanta.
He needs lots of surgries and I wanna help raise money to help with bills and food and other things they may need..
They are in Atlanta hospital now but are from Wisconsin.. they had to go stay with family members in Atlanta because their home here in Wisconsin burnt down. I'm asking for more prayers for the family as little bou remains in a induced coma until his lung heals and he becomes more stable... the family thanks you in advance for the donations and prayers...
                                                                       "Bou" is  in a medically induced coma, and it could be weeks before it’s known if he’ll survive and what treatment he’ll need. The family was only supposed to be in Georgia temporarily after a fire at their Wisconsin home.
Now, the family of six faces weeks of uncertainty, unsure how long the boy will be hospitalized, and where they’ll live in the meantime.
“The dad said they have nothing to do with (drugs),"
The family is angry, but hopefully the boy makes a full recovery. His sisters, ages are 3, 5, and 7.

There ought to be a law that if the SWAT team (or other law enforcement ) officials cause personal injury to innocent household members during a 'dubious' raid - that agency should be held responsible for any and all damages to the building and to the people - if the law enforcement agencies don't have any kind of consequence for these actions they will continue to make raids on innocent homes. This is outrageous - and it happens every day - here in the land of the free and home of the brave (sigh)

Tara Alamade, you should read the facts of the case before spewing your ignorant hatred.

Such an unnecessary tragedy! They need to be held accountable on every level and not just blame their actions on the man accused. My prayers go up for this baby and his family, who are in the midst of their troubles.

I am very happy to hear that he's out of the hospital. I have felt this tragedy on a personal level as the father of twin sons, who look a lot like Bou. Here's what he looks like now, hopefully the scars will fade completely, even know it does not look so bad, he has healed at an incredible rate. Truly a miracle. http://www.cbs46.com/story/25929695/baby-bou-bou-makes-first-public-appearance

If anyone in America is deserving of the term "terrorist," it's these SWAT teams that brutalize innocent Americans. This is disgusting. If you think the presence of drugs somehow justifies this behavior by the police, your sense of perspective is seriously messed up.

I feel so bad for this innocent little boy.. but innocent family? No you knew drugs were involved in that home. How could you possibly want to sue the police for this?? You should not have any children inside a home where you know there are drugs. The parents are the ones that have done wrong. I pray that he gets better. I can not imagine explaining to my child how they were injured. This breaks my heart.

My fiance were so disheartened to have read your story-- As new parents of a beautiful baby boy ourselves, we simply cannot imagine what you must have felt to have your son in such a condition because of a careless mistake that could have easily been avoided. We know it has been over a year since this incident occurred and we hope that Bou is recovering quickly! We sincerely hope that justice will be rightfully served! We will continue to follow your story-- best of luck to all of you!
