I don't buy it. He seems to have plenty of excuses for not taking pictures right away.  It would be funny as hell if someone just told him he had kkk on his chest.

"Rapid City, South Dakota – A member and resident of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe of South Dakota came home from a 14-day stay in the hospital to find he had been horribly mutilated.  Three Ks can be easily seen carved or burned into his abdomen in the shocking photograph taken the day after he came home.

 Vernon Traversie, who is completely blind, said his nightmare began when he had a heart attack while at the Heart Doctors office in Rapid City last August.  He said they immediately sent him a few blocks away to Rapid City Regional Hospital for emergency surgery.
 Traversie is a 68-year-old Lakota elder who told Last Real Indians, “I was supposed to have emergency surgery on my heart, but they (hospital) had scheduling problems.  Every night they would prep me for surgery which went on for four or five days.  Every night they would shave my chest and stomach and wouldn’t feed me.”
 Being blind, Traversie said he didn’t even know what was done to him until a RCRH employee came into his room and advised him to have pictures taken of his chest and abdomen as soon as he got home.  He says she told him that she could not testify for him, but that her conscience got the better of her and she didn’t agree with what they did to him.
 Last Real Indians asked retired nurse, Joyce Anderson, to view the photograph of Traversie’s injuries.  She was a surgical nurse for nine years and worked on the heart team at Baptist Hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas.  She said, “It appears the area under the incision was done with a scalpel for drainage of the incision.  The other wounds seem to be necrotic, meaning the tissue is dead.  This could indicate the wounds were burned into his skin.”

The nurse can't testify for him???  Because she is afraid she will lose her job? Not plausible.  Umm if this was true that nurse would lose her job anyway.  Why weren't pictures taken BEFORE HE LEFT THE HOSPITAL.

Hoax at best, but likely an attempt to file a frivolous lawsuit. High stakes slip-and-fall job here.

Definitely sounds like someone is reaching here trying to get a quick buck.

What evidence, do you base your conclusion on?

It's hard to comprehend the lack of compassion some have for a completely blind man in a hospital having serious heart problems and not being able to see at all what is happening around him.  What a horrifying ordeal.  Someone had a mental problem to just carve into another human being like that and what a coward to choose a helpless, sick, aged blind man.  I hope he gets justice!! https://www.facebook.com/JusticeForVern

I base my conclusion on the fact that there is no evidence that any of this happened at the hospital.

LOL

1) That's not even clearly KKK
2) Zero proof it happened at the hospital
3) Zero proof it's even his body

"A group of about five people is believed responsible for stuffing hundreds of pieces of Ku Klux Klan literature into merchandise at Rapid City stores in October.
Three stores – Walmart, Scheels and Best Buy – notified the Rapid City Police Department that white supremacy cards declaring South Dakota as “Klan country” were slipped into items already on their shelves and racks, according to Tarah Heupel, community relations specialist with the police department. A number of other stores in town were apparently targeted by the group as well, according to local managers from Scheels and Best Buy."

So since some people MAY have stuffed fliers into a mailbox... this proves that some random cuts on an unnamed torso clearly read "KKK"?
