Why can't anything be done for Benjamin Kyle (see details)?
Benjamin Kyle is a man who somehow survived a savage beating that left him with no memory of who he was before he awoke from the coma. He can’t establish a new identity because somewhere, his previous self has a social security number, so the Social Security Administration will not issue him a new number. That means he can’t work, he can’t get a state ID, he can’t even be admitted to homeless shelters.
Watch his amazing story in this short video and consider his plight. When we all see that the rules need to be bent for an exceptional case, why can’t someone just bend them? If this story gets shared enough, perhaps someone somewhere will recognize him and give him back his stolen past. Robbing someone of their lifetime of memories is a pretty hideous crime, isn’t it? Imagine the joy a person would feel if they could recognize him and give him back his lost life.
