    My dear and respected teachers,

    2: "I'll break your legs and then you'll be on crutches." correct?
    3: "He even can't walk with OR by the support of crutches." correct?

    2: "I'll break your legs and then you'll be on crutches." (He'll only 'be on crutches' if he has some and uses them. 'You'll have to use crutches' or 'You won't be able to walk without crutches' would be clearer. What you suggest is not grammatically incorrect though.) correct?
    3: "He can't even walk with OR by the support of crutches." correct?
