Real simple here...
1.Have the police make a report.
2.Have the parents charged appropiately with wreckless "whatever"
3.Contact your attroney and FILE A SUIT.
Bottomline: Get the cost of the kit and your time expended back, plus any injuries suffered physical or emotional.
Im sorry I have no soft heart where the life of a child was risked to the degree this individual did.
Kit? $800 Time? $800 Emotional and physical distress to a minor of that degree? $1000
Total is $2600, but demand $5000 as the judge always knocks it down Im told.
I cant see awarding the pain and suffering costs to yourself, if only becasue we are adults afterall, but that same horror subjected to a child? Sorry thats off the scale.. Im a dad you might be able to tell.
Yeah...ask for $5000... maybe the idiot parents and kid will have to sell the damned thing as a result - and theres a plus to the whole community.

Get a lawyer... plain and simple. Consultation is often free.
