I saw this on Facebook. The first thing that I did was to check it out on Snopes.com to see if this was for real. Nothing there showed up. I just couldn't believe that anyone could be so cruel. But unfortunately there are some real creeps in this world. What this jerk should think is, "But for the grace of God, go I". Wait until trouble strikes you and see how it feels. What a piece of slime!

That was terrible! I hope they find this gut-less turd too and that he or she is driven out the community the same way they wished this child out. People forget how fragile life is and that they might be in a similar situation someday.

Oh No

As an autistic...I must say "WHAT THE ****"?!

So I might as well go and die?! I'm highly-functioning for an autistic so much that in the introduction to Funkadelic's "Maggot Brain"...

Yes...I can be an Angry Young Man, but I can be as normal as normal can be!

A real classy person. Just the way she signs the letter tells one she has no compassion. What if she had a child? How would she feel if neighbors complained. Instead of helping the woman all she can do is complain. I wonder if the letter was taken to the police.

As much as that letter was unnecessarily cruel and mean, I have to wonder if that boy really was a disturbance. I can totally see how someone, who has no experience with autistic children, can be really annoyed by them.

Then the sensible (and sane) thing to do would be to meet w/ the family to find out more about autism and why he behaves like he does.

Indeed, even if the boy was a disturbance, this person went about it the wrong way.
