Phillip Aaron Thompson grew up in and around South Austin. He attended Kealing Middle School for a few weeks until his mom ran out of money and was forced to move. He was beaten by a gang member in Houston, and suffered debilitating injuries. His friend Dale Elizabeth said he's a strong man. "There's a trooper right there. He has survived things others could not." Phillip was photographed at the corner of E. 12th St and Comal St.
