READ: Hateful letter sent to family with autistic child

Yesterday, TheBlaze reported a “shocking hate-filled letter” was left in the mailbox of a family with an autistic child by a neighbor who felt the child was an “idiot” and “nuisance.”

According to TheBlaze:

A shocking hate-filled letter attacking a Canadian family’s autistic child has sparked outrage in an Ontario community and beyond. The letter, sent by a cowardly anonymous neighbor, accuses the “idiot” autistic child of being a “nuisance” because of the noises he makes while playing outside.

“The world is upside down. And the good news is it’s not just America,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Let me give you this from Canada. There was a woman who apparently just doesn’t like her neighbor. Let me be real specific: Doesn’t like her neighbor’s child. Let me be more specific: The neighbor’s child because they’re handicapped.”

The letter, which could be described as malicious at best, begs Karla Begley, the mother of the severely autistic 13-year-old, to move out of the neighborhood.

“You selfishly put your kid outside everyday and let him be nothing but a nuisance and a problem to everyone else with that noise polluting whaling he constantly makes!!!” the letter reads. “That noise he makes when he is outside is DREADFUL!!!!!!!!!! It scares the hell out of my normal children!!!!!!!”

The hate continued:

He is a hindrance to everyone and will always be that way!!!!! Who the hell is going to care for him?????? No employer will hire him, no normal girl is going to marry/love him and you are not going to live forever!! Personally, they should take whatever non retarded body parts he possesses and donate it to science. What the hell else good is he to anyone!!! You had a retarded kid, deal with it…properly!!!!! What right do you have to do this to hard working people!!!!!!!! I HATE people like you who believe, just because you have a special needs kid, you are entitled to special treatment!!! GOD!!!!!!

Ultimately, the neighbor suggests Begley “do the right thing and move or euthanize him.”

“Welcome to the City of Ontario, Canada. That’s not an American problem,” Glenn said. “We’re all outraged by this, right? But if you were a neighbor, are you going to say anything? If you’re the parent, what are you going to do… First response is, ‘I don’t want to live in that neighborhood. I just move.’ No. I don’t think so. Haven’t we given up enough ground?”

Pat and Stu struggled to decide what they would do if faced with this situation. This story has gained international attention because the mother who received the letter posted it on social media, and Stu believed this was probably the most effective thing to do.

“Isn’t what they did a great way to advance this,” Stu asked. “I mean, they put it online, now thousands of people have shared it. People, millions of people are hearing about it right now… I mean, how long is it going to be until they dig up who this person actually is and they really get shamed for it? People are going to be looking around in their neighborhood. Any suspect that they have, they are going to look through all their Facebook comments, look for comments about, you know, some kid in the neighborhood they don’t like. I mean, you can’t do this stuff anymore, and that’s probably a good thing.”

Glenn had a slightly different approach. He recently shared that he has placed a moratorium on the use of electronic devices in his house primarily because he felt his family was becoming desensitized to reality. Glenn said he would hold a neighborhood meeting to demand accountability.

“I have a neighborhood meeting. I hold a neighborhood meeting. I put that letter in everyone’s mailbox and say I want a neighborhood meeting, even if it didn’t come to me,” Glenn said. “It’s time to hash this out. Who are we? I mean, look at that. Look at that… Look at what we’ve planted. Now, these seeds have been planted all around the world. This is in Canada. What are they talking about? Euthanize your kid. Euthanize your handicapped kid. We used to have real feelings for each other, real feelings.”

    I speak on this matter as a Chaplain:

    Ultimately vengeance and final judgement belong in the hands of God and God alone; yet, we are called upon to condemn the ACTIONS and DEEDS of evil done by an individual, not to condemn the individual themselves. 

    Mercy is one of the true gifts of God and demonstrated amply by the Lord Jesus, yet recall, he also rebuked the deeds of evil doers, especially the deeds of the Sadducee and Pharisee priesthood. That is the key difference.

    It’s always nice when claiming to be calling out morons, to spell your insults correctly.  It lends a certain credibility and authority.  The child might “wail,” but I seriously doubt that he “whales” in the front yard.  That would  be quite something if he did, wouldn’t it? Excessive punctuation also exhibits a lack of imagination and eloquence, as does profanity and obscenity.  None of these things begin to be a replacement for wit.  This author is in no position to be calling anyone an idiot.

    Yes, it is deplorable!     However, the person who wrote the letter and sent it thinks he/she is correct in doing so.   This person cannot see the sunshine for the black fog covering his/hers eyes.   If he/she has children (and I presume that is correct) the person should feel blessed to have a child who doesn’t have special needs.  The child born to them with special needs would no longer be around!   For
    the family who does have the special needs child, God put the child into your loving hands for He knew you could handle it.   You are special!   Thank you for standing for your rights.    And yes, I think a block meeting would be a grand idea to dig this person out of his/her hole and just stare them down.  You probably can’t shame this person for he/she feels nothing wrong was done.     Totally selfish – totally selfish!    You stand tall!

    Truth being said, Obama’s dogs live better, and have more rights than the king’s pawns in the inner cities across this nation. And the ironic part is that Obama is taken for a defender of the poor. Of course, few understand the old lie of socialism-comunism-marxism, therefore, entire nations fall in the trap. Take a look at Cuba. In a census, over ten years ago, Cuba was still 95% Catholic. Before you get irritated, let me clarify the point I want to make, which is this: The results of the revolution is  proof positive of the lies of corrupt individuals like Fidel who promised, (I remember clearly) to eradicate the “evil Catholic church” and all signs pf religion….Fifty years of revolution, and nothing, not even enough bread for everyone in the island. Chavez from Venezuela was until his death (presumably) a Catholic, but he also was a socialist.
    When is going to be that the media, and the people, would call the Democratic Party by its real name, which obviously is, The Communist Party? IF WE DO NOT WANT THE SAME RESULTS, WE HAVE TO STOP DOING THE SAME THINGS.

    them know that you don’t take the life of a child just because of a defect.  By the grace of God, the sickos children must be perfect.     Perfect?      None of us are anywhere
    close to perfect.    Wonder if the grand parents are in the same mind set as the sickos?

    Although what this letter writer said was not nice, maybe there are circumstances we are not aware of.  Yes it was a poison letter and could have been done much better,  but I would like to hear the entire story from both sides before calling anyone names or condemning the letter writer to hell and burning houses and drop dead messages.  When my kids were young we had neighbors with a special needs son who made noises which didn’t bother me as much as this mean, hateful, and dangerous anger he possessed and his very strong strength in which he would use to harm my children.  We sold and moved to a safer place and maybe for the letter writer their is no alternative.  I do not know what is taking place there but we should not make such horrible statements to the unknown writer that is so awful.  You know the old saying, walk a mile in my shoes.  Sometimes the parents of special needs children are not perfect and believe everyone needs to bend for them no matter what and the truth is the parents need to be responsible for their children.  It really is something one must think about.

    First off I would like to thank you for playing “devils advocate”.  That being said…..here is MY opinion for what it’s worth.  I would FIRST want to know HOW LONG this child is allowed outside and is that child supervised?  Now…..IF that child is out for a total of an hour or so daily then my advice to this letter writer is: Pull up your big girl panties, suck it up buttercup and DEAL!  This individual no matter how mentally flawed has a RIGHT to exist and guess what?  That child is a perfect creation/being in the eyes of God.  Now, I am going to give you the flip side of this.  I live on a street that used to be quiet…..it now carries a LOT of traffic and people blast their radio’s and don’t even get me going on the motorcyle noise. (can you say MUFFLER?!)  SO…..I get to listen to that ALL DAY and it starts about 7 a.m. in the morning….EVERY MORNING from sun up to well past sun down.  Should I move?  I can’t afford to……but let me say this.  I would much rather live next door to that child then put up with the noise pollution I get to hear daily……all day and into the night.

    This is apparently an attitude brought forward by the socialist agenda of removing the moral fabric from the Western Society. The Fifth Column evidenced in this egregious letter. And here I have been told Canadians are more humane than these United States citizens, seriously. Eugenics appears to be alive and well, in the hearts and minds of some folks unwilling to learn from those mistakes of our human past.
    Imagine if history does indeed repeat itself, then a question remains to be answered: How can it be true then, that these current day parental units have evolved, much less learned from the mistakes of the previous generations?Certainly, a  situation where the Master Race Mentality is so copiously ingrained with this society, which so richly deserves the behavior it tolerates.Germanic Society tolerated nefarious infractions of humane behavior based on eugenic logistics & language, right up to the commencement of the Nuremberg Trials.

    I have an autistic sister who is just 15 months younger than I am.  She is a savant, meaning she has an extraordinary memory.  Meet her once, she will remember your name and anything you tell her such as your birthday or where you were born years after she has met you.  Doctors are fascinated by her.  Yes, she makes noises and jerks her hands around sometimes.  Its called pattering, once explained to me that something  in her brain is speeding up somehow.  She works at a workshop doing recycling and some small things that the local paper mill hires her shop to do for them.  Some days they even go clean the parking lot at the local hospital.  She hadn’t missed a day of work for over 20 years.  And cries if she can’t go to work.  Name me some normal bozo  that happy to work.   This woman is just plain evil.  She is the one who is handicapped.  She has no heart.

    I worked with a severely handicapped child – and i use the term loosely.  He was over six feet tall, probably weighed 200 pounds.  I was very afraid of him.  They finally found the right aide to work with him, and that child – who would scream and make horrible noises – learned to handle a job – picking up our attendance sheets.  I would give him a piece of candy and thank him, and he was required to say “you’re welcome”.  What a deal.  At the end of the year, he gave me a huge hug – pracically lifted me off my feet.  We had both learned.
    Wouldn’t it be better, neighbor, if you tried to be friendly, taught your children to be friendly, and all of you learned from one another?  I know it’s scary.  But the hurt you deliver – not just to that child and his/her mother, but to yourself and to your children.  I believe it’s beneath you.

    isn’t leaving a special needs child out in the yard on their own a form of child abuse?  everyone is so focused on the vitriol of the writer they are possibly overlooking an actual crime committed by the parent.  just askin’ the question.  (autism is individually tragic and yet societally perfect for the authoritarian, because although autistic people will have some amazing knowledge of specific trees, they will never understand the forest at all, end of story)

    Dear Lonni, 

    I hate to have to tell you this, but you could also use a primer on grammar.  You said 
    “None of these things begin…”  The correct usage is: “None of these things begins…”  None is a contraction of “not one.”  Therefore, “begin” must agree in tense with “none.”  I know you believe you’re an expert in grammar, but it just goes to show you that knowledge is relative.

    The RCMP should go around the neighborhood looking at everyone’s printers to ID the one that printed the letter.  Yes, they can do that.  Once ID’d, the perp should be checked for mental illness during a 72 hour evaluation at a mental health facility.  If no mental illness is detected by the mental health professionals after the 72 hour evaluation, then charges should be filed using one of Canada’s many “hate crime” or anti-intimidation laws.  If Canada is going to have a nanny state, then the nanny might as well look after the safety of the least among us — a disabled child.

    This
    letter was very hateful. I would never write such a thing. I do, however, live
    in a neighborhood that has a severely autistic teenager. His parents put him
    outside – alone – 3-4 times every day for at least two hours each time in a
    fenced-in yard. They put him outside early, sometimes at 5:30 a.m. He’s often
    out there until midnight, sometimes later. They even leave him outside for
    those same lengths of time in the winter. He’s all by himself and he does
    “wail” loudly and solidly for those hours that he’s out. Now the
    “compassion” issue works both ways. Why is it okay to let the entire
    neighborhood be subjected to the noise – and it is the noise that’s the issue,
    not the person. Can’t anything be done, like keeping him inside? Finding a
    rural provider to watch over him – and yes, maybe even pay attention to him – during the day? Or how about his own family members stay outside
    with him, as he’s usually much quieter when a family member’s present? Let’s
    examine this problem from both sides and come to a good solution, for
    everybody. Compassion works both ways. Until you’ve had a person such as this in an
    otherwise very quiet and respectful neighborhood, you cannot understand. To
    those who cast aspersions and call us compassionate? Walk a mile in our shoes.

    The progressives have made it “ok” to want to abort Downs Syndrome babies…..the slippery slope of euthanasia.   And many people have aborted them, since now you can do genetic testing in the womb.  BUT, just a couple months ago I saw on the Sun. morning FOX Medical news show, there’s been a breakthrough genetically for D.S.  After some final testing, they now have a way to cancel out the extra chromosome, so the babies can be cured in the womb.  Also, even after being born with the condition, the extra chromosome can still be disabled so that the premature death rate is diminished into adulthood. 

    So, imagine this….you’ve aborted your D.S. baby, and now they have a way to cure it. 

    We’re all a step away from some disease in this broken world.  That neighbor could, God forbid, have a stroke and spend the rest of her life needing assistance, drooling, and perhaps, making unrecognizable sounds herself.  “Mercy given is mercy received” – the Good Book.

    I just brought my 20 year old autistic son home from the psychiatric unit of a hospital.  He was there because he so badly wants to die.  The night before I took him in, he was literally begging me to kill him.  I have spent the last 20 years desperately trying to improve the quality of his life and convince him of reasons to live.  Autism can suck the life right out of the people who love a person with autism…we REALLY don’t need any neighbors’ advice who haven’t walked in our shoes.  SHAME on that woman who wrote that note.

    Every child is a gift from God, every one of us, and no one has a right to condemn a child with any health condition.  I believe that God allows these children in our lives because they, despite their health or condition, can teach us what real love is all about.  I have a nephew who is Autistic, and though he is an adult now, he brings joy, laughter, and a spiritual presence to his family and those who know him.  Unfortunately his dad, my brother, is dealing with cancer.  God bless

    I personally don’t care about what will happen to the person who wrote this.  My heart breaks for the mother that received it.  It is devastating to have a child with a disability.  We all have hopes and dreams for our children. Not all of us are so lucky to get them.  To already be dealt a blow of learning to cope and make the best life for a child of autism, in which there’s not a lot of help,  is extremely difficult. Then to have someone so completely unfeeling and nasty, just scares me.  Where is humanity, feeling, compassion? What if one of their children suffered a brain injury? Everyone has a story.  If I had a wailing child that was scaring my children, I would go to the mother, ask if I could help, learn her needs, tell her my concerns.  People don’t do that any more.  They write anonymous letters with a complaint but no offer of compassion or help. I start with me and mine, teaching them of others needs and being compassionate.  That’s all we can do. It’s a start….

    Actually, Broom, you are not strictly correct.  Using the Oxford Online Dictionary as reference in this case, “It is sometimes held that none can only take a singular verb, never a plural verb: none of them is coming tonight rather than none of them are coming tonight. There is little justification, historical or grammatical, for this view. None is descended from Old English nān
    meaning ‘not one’ and has been used for around a thousand years with
    both a singular and a plural verb, depending on the context and the
    emphasis needed.”  Hence, though it is true that “none” can be used as a contraction for “not one,”  it can also be used as a contraction for “not any,” as can be implied in the use of “None of these things…”  Before criticizing someone perhaps you should do a bit more research yourself.

    Don’t you wish this “mom” was yours? It would probably be fairly easy to find out who this is because a personality this depraved does not have the ability to mute their words, their feelings or their actions. This has happened before with this woman, I guarantee it. 

    I have to wonder if she considered the possibility that if she was ever found out, her life could be forfeit or her family could be threatened. Remember the mom, Lori Drew, who “anonymously” posed online as a boy to get back at a girl named Megan Meier who had offended her daughter? After successfully beginning an internet relationship with Megan, she “dumped” and mocked her, posting some of the private things the girl had told the fake personality, “Josh”. Megan’s last post to the account said, “You’re the kind of boy a girl would kill herself over.” A few minutes later, she hanged herself in her closet. Lori Drew’s family has had to virtually disappear because they became the subject of numerous threats and voluminous hatred. The neighbor that wrote this hate-filled tirade, if found out, will probably be the one who ends up moving because the rest of the neighbors and the world, in general, will make their lives miserable. Perhaps rightly so, since the most appropriate punishment is to suffer what one has inflicted on others. Like Lori Drew, I believe that she will find that there is no excuse, no reason and no justification that anyone possessing any modicum of rationality will buy. She will experience in a very public forum, the lack of compassion and venom she believed she unleashed anonymously. 

    I would like to see the neighbors rally around this family and denounce whoever it was that sent the letter. If they don’t, I would agree it would be better to move to a neighborhood where there are fewer sociopaths to deal with.

    I’m not sure why we are so surprised by this. We live in a world where parents are encouraged to abort their less than “perfect” unborn children. This woman is merely taking it to the next logical step. She clearly believes that aborting challenged children is a good thing and recognizes that if it is right and acceptable to murder a human being at one point in their life, then it should always be right and acceptable to murder that human being. The great hypocrisy comes from those that would have supported the mother’s right to kill her autistic son before birth, but are now outraged that someone would suggest that he be euthanized now.

    How sad that there are what we call still ‘people’,( those with psychological problems which are literally evil). Those who believe from ‘this’ group, that children should be euthanized because some children happen to be autistic…literally don’t have a heart.

    When people don’t have a heart, then they are like zombies…will they be judged some day? There’s no doubt about it!

    I think a nice thing to do would be for everyone in the neighborhood go to the door of the family and tell them that it wasnt them that wrote the hate filled spiel and let the family know where they live ( give the address) , that way it would eventually single out the offender.. it would be a good start.  the offender might try and go to the neighbor but this particular person wouldnt be able to sit long enough with the child in his presence to not be able to keep his or her cool about them.. then the parents would be able to file harrassment charges .. people today are so cruel, and so full of hate.  the world is upside down..this ugly person also has the choice to move if dont like the neighborhood.. just a thought

    I believe Lonni’s point is: here is this individual calling a child an idiot and a retard while at the same time composing a letter which is very poorly constructed. I’m not sure they understand how to correctly compose a APA style letter or MLA letter. This women’s letter is extremely hateful. I wander if this is the first time anyone has approached this subject of her wailing child. This writer talks about hard working, yet she’s home during the day. Is she a home maker, maybe she works nights. I work nights and know that if my neighbor had a wailing child it would be a problem. I would most definitely take a different approach. I would go next door and have a civil conversation while explaining my situation and politely aske that something be done if at all possible. If nothing, in her opinion, could be done is have to look towards code enforcement. The thing I would not do is hate on this poor unfortunate child and family.

    We don’t know the situation that the letter writer is in. Yes this was handled extremely poorly. It’s possible that this is a person who works nights. If this is the case a sleep deprived individual may in the fog of desperation have written this letter. Don’t get me wrong what this person did was extremely ridiculous and in poor taste. However, if it is the case that they send this child to the back yard to wail than this should be curved as best possible. Other thoughts, besides being autistic is this child being abused(this child is at high risk to be abused). Are they sending to the back yard without supervision? Are they being neglected, hit, or yelled at? My point is we don’t really know what’s going on here and we all should not judge any of the participants in this matter.

    This is how people who believe in abortion sound when giving their reasons for abortion. I have a neighbor who thinks girls who get pregnant out of wedlock should have abortions, so people don’t have to help support them.  People are like bugs, if they don’t like the way they look or having to deal with them, they choose to squash them out. People with a dead heart and angry energy.

    So what’s new?  The autistic boy is a nuisance to someone so the logical solution (to that “someone” anyway) is euthanize him.  Got pregnant? Didn’t plan for it? Don’t want it? Euthanize it!  And the best part? The Gov’t will reimburse you for doing so. Now just think.  When “someone” becomes old(er) and is a nuisance to “someone else” it’ll be their turn to be euthanized.  Is there anyone who does not understand the immorality of this thinking? And placing the responsibility for determining who and what is a nuisance on a “Death Panel” (oh, how I love Sarah Palin) does not absolve any of us for allowing it to happen.

    This is what I would do. I would not write a letter and say nasty things. I would go to my neighbor and talk face to face. If I worked nights and had to sleep in the day. I would let my neighbor know. All this depends on just what this mother is letting the child do. But you still can not be nasty about things. You must try to work things out. Even cities state that loud noise can not be after 10 pm. So if things can or will not be worked out, then you must make a move to what it is that you need to be peaceful.

    Yeah, but Glenn, what we used to have is no more because of the life style that all of us have seen portrayed on Television and in the movies.  Then we have the same sort of portrayal by our elected officials in the cities, states and national capitol.  We have finally harvested what we paid for.  Or in other words, the harvest of our seed sowing has come home to roost. 
    But don’t even think that there was never any hate filled people living in all of our neighborhoods because there were.  If it was any other way, none of those TV programs or movies would have any audience to show their products to and we would still be seeing movies like we see being rerun on the cheap TV stations. 
    It is all a heart problem and the creation of the “All about ME” generation.  Selfish mean spirited people have been given a very fertile ground to grow in and now they are more numerous than dandelions.  Not even Roundup will rid us of their poison and for heavens sake, no one would even consider sharing God’s love with the hate mongers.  Next thing that will happen is a major clamp down on anyone and everyone who even thinks of sharing God’s love with them.

    That evil letter is a microcosm of modern-day society.

    People born after 1972 have never known a world without on-demand baby murder for convenience (see Roe vs Wade) — all “legitimized” by the Supreme Court of the United States acting well beyond their authority.

    Then followed assisted-suicide allowing your doctor to kill you at your request if you were suffering a terminal illness and were going to die eventually anyway. Dying sooner rather than later ended the pain that the doctors weren’t treating (control the pain and the urge to die disappears), and it made things more convenient for family members who didn’t want to be inconvenienced with having to tend to the sick parent’s needs.

    Then right on cue began the mass murders — students killing students. Kids killing kids. Children killing parents. Proof positive that they were hearing and understanding the message of their parents loud and clear — LIFE IS CHEAP AND DISPOSABLE.

    What a very sad thing for this person to persecute their neighbor. When a child has authistism then they are very special children. The parents has a lot to do for this child, but in the end it will be worth it. That so called neighbor could have come to her neighbor and visited with her and learn about that child. She could have learned and helped the neighbor. This neighbor has been very selfish to her children. What gives her the right to be judge and jury over her neighbor? As far as I am concerned everybody has access to the air that we have. It is for everyone to enjoy. I am very glad that the letter went to the world. What an injustice slamming the neighbor did to that child. She should go an apologize to her neighbor for being such a hypocrit. She better watch out that her children stay healthy and not get in an accident of any kind, otherwise her precious child could be seen as bad and no one wants them outside to play. She hasn’t been by disabled children and she had a great opportunity. She better pray that she doesn’t get karma, because it will come to her.

    The child doesn’t seem to be out of control. It appears that the author of this letter simply does not like to hear the odd noises that this autistic child makes. You know, the last thing that the mother of this child wanted in life was to give birth to a child with such special needs. It can’t be helped, it just happens. I am sure that this mother has thought, time and time again, about how her child will not grow up to experience the same pleasures and happiness in life that a lot of us take for granted. The person who wrote this letter needs a serious dose of karma to come their way, and it needs to be three-fold! People who spew such hateful words will only make it so far before something really horrible happens to them or someone they love. My own child has a severe peanut allergy, and as an effort to combat an issue in his 4th grade class this year, the teacher sent out a form that requested the signature of each child’s parent. With this signature, the parents would acknowledge that there is a child with an allergy and that they will NOT send any peanut butter or peanut containing products into the classroom, for lunch or snack. Well, as to be expected, several of the parents freaked out because their kids “only eat PB&J.” Here’s a thought… maybe these parents should recognize that the death of a child is more important than their child’s pickiness! Make your kid try different foods for lunch, or send them to school with other snacky stuff that they like, and feed them the PB&J when they get home… my God, elementary school gets out at 2:45 PM… I think that their children can live a couple of extra hours before they get their “nutritious” lunch. Sorry for ranting, but I’ve just had my fill of inconsiderate people for today :/

    That is quite a leap to assume that a child that makes atypical or reportedly distracting noises is out of control.  The children with autism in the school that I run who make noises would not necessarily be considered out of control.  Every child and situation is different but I’ve never seen the noise a child makes endanger anyone.  Perhaps the family is unaware of any resources that may provide an intervention that would help curb this behavior.  Above all, loving people is a superior choice to hate.

    I’ll speak from experience here.  This is as bad as when the mother with 2 kids grabbed her kids who were connecting with my 4 yr old daughter (autistic), and hid her children behind her own back, away from my daughter; while in line at the grocery store.  Everyone saw it happen but Mom just didn’t care.  Mom was scared of my daughter, a 4 yr old. and created fear in her own kids.
     
    My daughter didn’t know the difference, but Mom, on the other hand, had just taught her kids to fear those that are different.  Her own kids were fine until she stepped in with her predjudice.
     
    Want another one?  Do you know how many times I have seen adults get up and walk out of a business when we have walked in and it becomes apparent that there is a intellectually challenged person there?  My daughter is now 27, and she knows when people laugh at her and say things about her in public. She knows. She just can’t express it.
     
    Feels terrible to witness it. Must feel even more terrible to her.
     
    One thing I have learned over the years: This is all about fear. Fear of those that are different.

     Marcus, even the devil, I mean letter writer, didn’t indicate any danger from the child. Just noise nuisances. Lets not blow it into something its not by trying to sympathize with the devil, er, letter writer. We all know that some kids with disabilities can be dangerous. But I would think that the devil, ahem, I mean letter writer surely would have jumped at the chance to bring that up if it were an issue. Besides, I definitely fear some folks “regular” kids much more than any handicapped kids I know. Take for example the several teens who just shot and killed a jogger because they were “bored and didn’t have anything to do” so they decided, “Heck, lets kill some one!” That should be fun. There are no words for stuff like this.

    I can understand the letter writer’s frustration since
    living in close quarters with people not in your family can be frustrating. One
    has to put up with all sorts of noise, clutter, bad smells, and over-grown
    vegetation from those that do not pay attention to those details. However, I
    feel bad for the mothers of autistic children; it is truly a heartbreaking
    experience. While the letter was probably not necessary, it could be argued
    that the letter writer needed to vent her frustrations and did not know who to
    turn to or unable to reach out for professional help. At the end of the day,
    this issue is not news and is not deserving of international attention. Neighbor
    squabbles belong to the people with the issue and it is none of anyone else’s business.
    It is obvious that the mother of the autistic child wanted some attention, which
    would explain why she posted the letter to her social media account. Both women
    may need some professional help to deal with their issues.

    And once again, we stumble on yet another complete, fool jackass who feels more compassion and understanding for a vicious sociopath than for the victim. Only sociopathic personalities could empathize with the letter writer and immediately jump to the conclusion that the parents might be locking the boy out of the house and abandoning him outside. After all, why would ANY parent send a child outside to play? Of course we don’t know all of the circumstances. Perhaps we should all just refrain from condemnation of ANY act until we are able to literally occupy the mind of the aggressors. That kind of paralysis extends from the neck UP.
    There is NO excuse that could possibly justify the psychotic rant of the letter writer. I couldn’t care less if the writer works at night. What in the world is wrong with you that you believe that sociopathic behavior can be justified by insomnia? I couldn’t care less that the boy’s neurological ticking by wailing is unacceptable to her. Empathy and compassion end at the point that someone acts in such a cowardly, filthy, evil fashion. The writer didn’t just express frustration, they unleashed hatred, condemnation and callousness to a degree that voids any expectation of empathy on the part of others. Desiring the death of a child that doesn’t fit into their definition of “acceptable” qualifies them for nothing more than contempt…NOT compassion.

    I beg to differ with you.
     
    Any venting should have been done in the privacy of the letter writer’s home and not gushed out to the one person that lives with this daily.

    And to let you know, It is not all that heartbreaking living with an autistic person. What is heartbreaking is hearing someone else say that because a person gave birth to a person with disabilities, they need professional help (because we all know what you really meant by ‘professional help.’) Parents of autistic individuals have to deal with others saying things like this all the time.

     It could also be said that those pointing out others whom they feel need professional help, actually need to seek professional help themselves just to understand why they feel the way they do about others.

    Canada is just as up on autism as the US, and most parents already have professionals working with them. So I will choose to dismiss your lack of awareness and chalk it up to being young and inexperienced with the human condition.

    This parent was just living life. God help the person that wrote this letter, and that they never live next door to an opera singer or a kid learning how to play a saxophone.

    Understand that everyone is disabled in one way or another, it’s just easier to point out the ones that wear it on the outside. Many carry it inside as fear which poisons an individual globally. Think of life as a pie. Everyone has a wedge cut design of disabling situations. It is so easy to attack others because of the way they look or behave on the outside.  Remember if the majority of the disability is on the outside, there is minimal disability on the inside.  They are more pure in their thoughts and feelings.

    Personally, I think this letter was written by a teenager, and I bet their parents have no idea that they did this.

    You are the epitome of the admonition to keep your mouth shut in order to keep people guessing whether you’re really as much of a moronic jackass as you appear to be from looks alone. You’ve now opened your mouth and demonstrated the truth of what, I’m sure, everyone you’ve ever come in contact with could easily confirm. There’s no question left at all.

    These sounds are not a label of autism, rather it is indicative of a developmental disability. Many persons with autism speak clearly. But if the brain does not function correctly sometimes the words are garbled. Many people with intellectual/developmental disabilities make odd sounds. Many people that make the odd sounds have no autism at all. 

    I have seen many levels of autism and I/DD. For example my daughter runs all her words together. One of her friends has no speech at all (and is not autistic) and she screeches and whistles and makes strange sounds. Sometimes it hurts my daughter’s ears, but I remind my daughter that every one has a right to speech, and that just because her girlfriend cannot speak correctly, this is how it comes out of her mouth. She is speaking, we just can’t understand it. (I also remind my daughter that we can’t always understand her words).

    Babies can’t speak either, and they cry to get their message out, but they develop the ability to speak on a rate differently than someone with I/DD.

    There is nothing horrible about this. Have you ever heard a non hearing individual speaking? It is also different than a hearing individual.

    You are absolutely correct. As a father and grandfather, the kind of ignorance that comprises the mentality of such people makes my blood boil. You’ve obviously handled it well over the years, but I would venture to say that you probably feel every single one of the hurts that you have seen her suffer. I’ve treated many, many developmentally disabled patients in my practice and the love of their parents and caretakers never ceases to amaze me. Of course some are better than others, but I have often witnessed quiet resolve to love and courage of gargantuan proportion in those families that allows them to go on. May God bless you for those qualities.

    Many autistic children have neurological “ticks” that are manifest in noises that they make that are self comforting. The noise serves to exert a sense of control over their environments. Many autistic children cannot tolerate touch, disruptions in their schedules or too much human interaction. Their worlds are very lonely places and the noise helps to “center” them. There are other repetitive behaviors such as rocking, that some of these children exhibit as well, but the noises are the most obvious and notable in public. Of course, autism comprises a vast range of conditions and a broad spectrum of deficits, behaviors and functionality. Because of this, we are only scratching the surface of understanding it.

    I wonder how this “pissed off” mother who wrote such a caustic letter would feel if the autistic child belonged to her?  You can bet that she’d be complaining and writing nasty letters about people who did not have autistic children and didn’t understand the difficulties.  The pissed off neighbor will never be happy, even if the children outside are normal.  I find Ms. Pissed Off neighbor’s attitude extremely offensive because she claims to speak for others, when her primary concern is her own selfish desires.  She certainly would Not speak for me!  (I’m the type that invites the autistic child and parent into my home for cookies, milk, and conversation.)

    You see, people with autism may understand exactly what you typed, and perhaps you’ve had some experience with someone like what you are describing, but here’s the key to what you keep alluding to: 

    There are just as many people that would likely do this to you, as the person with autism, especially if you go around saying things like you do, in public. The difference is that there are less people with autism around and more people without autism around, but that doesn’t change the way others experience you. You run a higher risk of being clobbered by a rake, a shovel, whatever… all because of the way you handle yourself.

    Your tolerance level could use a lift.

  • Amanda Altamirano

    I think that you might have missed the point of the letter. The writer was saying that the parent of the child was pushing that “disturbance” in her face. She was saying that the noise and behavior crossed the boundary. Perhaps like someone having a dog kennel in their back yard and not keeping it clean and the smell and noise crosses the property line to the nearby neighbors. Tolerance is one thing. But trying to be sensitive to your neighbors is important too. Perhaps the neighbor wouldn’t have been upset of the sight and sound was confinded to the parent’s property. I don’t see alot of difference between what this writer is miffed about and the gays trying to force their livestyle down our thoats. The writer wasn’t complaining for no reason at all. It’s not as if she looked over the backyard fence and saw this kid acting this way. She is just saying you want me to be tolerant and I want you to be respectful of others- keep your kid who behaves that way out of my sight and earshot. It’s no different than someone blaring their loud music at 2 am in the morning. Keep your stuff to yourself. Tolerance has limits.

    You and the others who are posting empathy for the letter writer on this thread need to start thinking on a deeper level. Expressing a desire to see the euthanization of those who do not qualify for life according to their own way of thinking is NOT NORMAL. It is not simply venting, it is not something that should ever be expressed and it does not matter whether the person has access to professional care or not. Your “understanding” of the feelings of the letter writer are indicative of a pervasive problem in society. That problem is moral relativity. When there is no line that can be crossed morally, any act can be “understood”. What it comes down to is that your ethics are demonstrated far more, not by what you stand for, but rather by what you WON’T stand for.
    You have a long way to go and I’d start by suggesting that you reserve compassion for the victim first. Condemning the act of the perpetrator by the measure of the most basic moral and ethical standard is the appropriate response. Compared to the effect of the act on the victim, the motivational “WHY” is of far less immediate import than the “WHAT”. The WHY is what comes later when the perpetrator is made to answer for the act and is given the chance to explain themselves, however insignificant a role that should play in their fate.
    It’s good that you can feel empathy for parents of autistic children. However, the fact that you can’t seem to place your empathy in a superior position to the motivations of the perpetrator (like so many I am reading on this thread) shows that you are indicative of the malady that commonly seems to affect society today…a disproportionate identification with evil and a lack of self awareness as to what that says about you as a person.

    No both people do not need professional help. Only the mother of the autistic child needs professional help. #1 she caused the autism in the first place.  She is the reason that that child is autistic. It is envirnmentally genetic. Co-dependent parents produce autistic children.  By her placing that child in the front yard seeking attention and then sending the letter to Glenn Beck, she is showing how much of an attention seeker she is. #2 The letter writer has a right to be angry when someone abuses her. And this is what that was. Sure her anger built but she did direct it at the appropriate person. So what if it was harsh. I bet that child hates it’s mother just about that much too. Read Bettleheim on autism. He was 80% right and 50 years before his time. He is discredited only by those with self-serving agendas and parents in denile. I was autistic and I am speaking from experience. Healed from autism. 

  • Amanda Altamirano

    God help the mother of the child for being a selfish attention seeking moron and causing that child’s autism in the first place. Selfish parents, codependent parents cause children to have autism. Speaking from experience as a cured former autistic. Don’t force your crap on us. We aren’t buying. 

  • Amanda Altamirano

    No you haven’t learned. It is about fear alright. The fear is in the autistic person. And the parents are the cause of the autism. So don’t start telling us that we need to accept you. That’s like saying we need to accept two gay women kissing in public. I would have pulled my child away from yours too. And I was autistic.

  • Amanda Altamirano

    This person’s letter sounds as though lots of the neighbors feel similarly or at least she makes it sound that way. Look, why would a person with a noise-polluting child want to live in a neighborhood that is closely packed homes?  The letter writer may have some very valid points. The parent of the autistic child may have really crossed some boundaries and is expecting the world to bow down to her and is rude to push this on her neighbors. Doesn’t she have a backyard? Why does she want ALL this attention?  Is Beck going liberal? Look, I tolerate a person with body odor in the check out line, I tolerate my neighbors barking dogs (if it’s once in a while) but there are limits to tolerance. The parent of the autistic child seemed to have no respect for anyone else around. She is the reason for the child being autistic. Obviously, her world is as small as she is and she is some type of narcissist. Throw the letter out and put the kid in the backyard or put up a fence or some bushes. Involving Beck was just another attempt by the mother to get attention for HER. She is a pathetic excuse for a parent.

    I guess you don’t realize that Bruno Bettelheim’s views were deemed as old fashioned and out of date, since he is the originator of the term of “Refrigerator Mothers.”

    Do some due diligence and you will find that his views were thrown out back in the early 70′s (uhhh, that was over 40 yrs ago). We have newer knowledge these days, so if you were considered Autistic …and “cured” good for you. But even so, I would never, ever, EVER blame your parents for whom you’ve made of yourself. And if your anger carries you so far as to make antiquated accusations at others, well, you live with it, you own it.

    One more comment this one is about Glenn Beck. He never should have made the letter public. IMHO, Beck is a whore. The parents who received the letter should just have discussed it amongst themselves and then thrown it in the trash. But NO they are attention seekers and “victims” so they send it to Beck. And Beck buys the “victim” crap and gives it validity. Isn’t that the exact opposite of what he preaches?  But Beck preaches God from his Moron view point. He doesn’t even know God. This shows how counterfeit he is. He had an opportunity to make a difference but he chose to be a divider by giving this attention seeker the platform she wanted. If she would have been a good neighbor in the first place, maybe someone would have told her in private. You just wait there will be more come out about this parent. Beck is an alcoholic. If he knew God, then he wouldn’t be just a dry drunk. If you know God, he will heal you completely to the point where someone once in bondage to alcohol does not have to abstain but can drink like any other normal person and will not be overcome again. Absteinance does not mean the person is healed. God doesn’t 1/2 fix anything. Also, Beck says he doesn’t hear God much anymore and that his Spiritual advisor said that was because he was growing and God was giving him room. BS. If you know God, you know his voice and you listen to it and hear it daily. Can you imagine Jesus not hearing from God for weeks on end?  Beck is lost to the Devil in that Satanic man-made religion. He just found a religion that suited the way he wanted to live and that would make him “feel” good.

    I don’t know that much about autism, but evidently I know much more than you!  I recently read a story about an autistic girl – who also made “abnormal noises.”  Once she learned how to communicate, through a computer I think it was, she was able to talk very intelligently and “normal.”  I learned ALOT about autism.  The story also included a video of her & her father communicating.  She explained how she ‘acts out’ (again, makes ‘abormal noises’) when she has to drown out the noise of her surroundings.  The noter who said something about it being a ‘communication problem’ sounded closest to accuracy.  I believe autistic people are very in-tune with all around them–that it gets overwhelming & they make a ‘noise’ to drown out the interfering noise they hear.  When this girl was able to ‘communicate’—she was able to control her outbursts.  It was the most fascinating story & was good because it had video of when she was a baby & her today.  I wish I’d saved it now….but I look at autism completely different & there is much MORE to be understood about autistic children/people.  I agree with others…your supposedly “normal” people are more dangerous than autistic people any day.

    Let me educate you a bit. Do you know why ASD people have
    meltdowns? Because they haven’t learned or acquired the skills to cope with the
    world around them. Any type of stimuli coming at you, which we take for granted
    in selecting which one we’ll respond to, they accept all at once; without a
    choice. Ever been extremely tired, a few days without sleep, and simple things
    really irritate you – that is an ASD person times 10. So everything coming at
    you, like an overwhelmed hardrive receiving 10′s of 100′s of signals, gets
    really confused and says “shutdown”. The meltdown is a physical
    representation of these multiple signals and operates as a check-valve for the
    stress….. it just comes out being noises and actions that we, the unspecial
    people, can not comprehend nor know how to cope with a behavior that is
    alien to us in our world.

     

    To these special people, we are intruding into their world.
    Its up to us to be patient, understanding, and find a way to communicate, build
    a bridge so they can cope and operate in our world.

     

    Think of it this way – what if you could be a person of Two
    Worlds, Two Continuums? Now that would be exciting, wouldn’t it?!!

     

    ASD varies by person. Last factoid and I’ll leave you with
    your thoughts, maybe even research this a bit more, aey? ASD effects, depending
    on the source you reference, effects 1 in 67 to 1 in 88 children. If you work
    that number through our US Population – that is what you would call an
    EPIDEMIC, yet if you want help it takes upto 1/2-3/4 year just to get an
    appointment to see IF its ASD. If you think the parents of ASD children are
    being negligent or not actively seeking speech & occupational therapy
    to help them – you are mistaken.

     

    I’ve got tones to say on this but I think I’ll leave
    it there for you to ponder and explore further into ASD.

    I can offer no opinion, I’m not there. The letter is clearly over the top with the “move or euthanize”, but there is the question of the care that the parents of the autistic child are giving him/her. If autistic children are special, as some respondents say, then the parents should take special care of them. If the writer is right, and the parents are putting the child in the yard every day unattended, then the parents are not taking care of that child. Dog or cat, normal child or “special needs” child – all need the affection and attention of the parents. If the writer is correct then the parents are “warehousing” their child in the yard for their own convenience.

    I repeat, the letter is full of hate -  but the first sentence says “you selfishly put your kid outside every day”. If the parents are putting the child in the yard unattended to get him out of their hair then they are the ones who are harming the child. If they are letting him play outside and paying attention to him then they are in the right.

    I spent a lot of time alone in the yard at age ten. Crippled by polio I was carried to a chaise longue and given books so I could be outside in the sunlight. I wandered the world in the world of books and imagination – but couldn’t disturb the neighbors. If the parents of this child see him finding himself in the world of their yard then more power to them, but if they are merely getting him out of the house then they are the offenders, against the child and the neighbors.

    Someone deplored the comparison to a barking dog, but if the parents are treating the child as a barking dog then the comparison is correct. We have no way of knowing the exact circumstances, although we can all deplore the wording of the letter.

  • Steppin on toes

    Hmm, this is what socialism brings, hatred for your fellow man, (and children) the utter disregard of the sanctity of human life (Abortion) and the tolerance for people who unfortunately have disabilities.

    Margaret Sanger would be proud of this particular denizen of the neighboring country to the north of the US along with Adolf Hitler and his “Useless Eater’s” propaganda. There is a Leftist Lawyer in Colorado trying to get retro-active abortion put into law along with a human/medical ethicist with the Idea that a child can be put to death/euthanized/aborted even after birth due to the not a fully developed human being argument  up to the age of last I heard was 18.

    Bill Cosby joked about, “I brought you into this world and I can take you out!” What was a comedy routine is again rearing its ugly head in the real world. I noticed that the letter included the line, “Nobody wants you here but they don’t have the guts to tell you.” I would say that there is more than just this wonderful human being in that neighborhood that feels the same way.

    I would suggest to this lady to move away from these morons for her and her child’s safety. It is just a short step from receiving a letter of this type to the type of idiocy of the Anti-Irish, Anti-Chinese, Anti-Italian leagues found in this country during the great European and Chinese migrations to the US during the latter and early part of the 19th and 20th century.

    This angry neighbor is the mindset we all we fought against with the Hitler regime and with Margaret Sanger’s planned parenthood. here are a few quotes from her writings to chew on when you start to think about Planned parenthood being a good organization.

    On blacks, immigrants and indigents: “…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ‘spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”  Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people
    On sterilization & racial purification: Sanger believed that, for the purpose of racial “purification,” couples should be rewarded who chose sterilization. Birth Control in America, The Career of Margaret Sanger, by David Kennedy, p. 117, quoting a 1923 Sanger speech.
    On the right of married couples to bear children: Couples should be required to submit applications to have a child, she wrote in her “Plan for Peace.” Birth Control Review, April 1932
    On the purpose of birth control: The purpose in promoting birth control was “to create a race of thoroughbreds,” she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)
    On the rights of the handicapped and mentally ill, and racial minorities: “More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.” Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12

    We must fight against socialist thinking on all front and never surrender.  One day if you become disabled like myself after working ever since I was a kid 12 helping my grandfather with his sandblasting business as a summer job, You may be declared a useless eater and euthanized for the good of humanity. Can we say Obama care and the “death panel” if you want to see this in action just look at England’s medical system. See how they deal with elderly patients who have had one operation too many or even how they treat patients in the hospitals unless you are the Dutchess of York with the world’s media looking upon you.

    As Paul Harvey would say, “Good Day!”

    Content of the letter reviews here? There is only one content. Pure and unadulterated hatred for an innocent human being with a disability. Whoever this person is has the freedom of expression and speech to say these awful things, but we also have the freedom to be disgusted, to voice our outrage, and to discuss that person’s suitability for associations in the neighborhood as well. This evil and heartless person chose to single out an innocent child who cannot “fix” what is wrong with himself/herself and that could in a decent neighborhood cause the same ostracizing to be directed towards the author of such a vile letter. The best way to deal with it is confrontation, kindness, correction, and support to get help with anger management for the real handicapped person. The author of the letter.

    Yes….but that isn’t even a concern of the letter writer. It’s the sheer inconvenience of having to deal with that type of child that bothers them.

    If the neighbor has a problem with the child, why didn’t he/she go talk to the family? From the wording of the letter, it sounds like the sender has a bigger issue than just the noise.

If I lived in that neighborhood, I’d be far more worried about the person with so much hatred in them than the autistic child who may or may not be making annoying sounds.

    It may not have been an adult who wrote this horrible letter. It may have just as easily been a very immature, pot-stirring teen living in the neighborhood. The behavior and attitude written in this letter is so sophomoric. Perhaps a teen writing under the cover that it would be assumed it was authored by a homeowner.  That letter not only caused destructive damage to that poor family, but it would also cause a casting of accusing fingers toward everyone who lives in that neighborhood. Now everyone would be suspicious of everyone next to and around them. A lot of collateral damage all the way around.

     I noticed she spelled vamose incorrectly…It needs two o’s.  :)  Yes that was a hateful scary letter and hurt the mom’s feelings so very much I am sure. Yet I do wonder…what does it mean by “you put your kid outdoors”…does the mother stay outside with the child or just push him/her outdoors to be alone and possibly afraid. I don’t know the circumstances but there may be another side to this story and maybe child services (I don’t like them either) should check in to the arrangements and care giving of this child. Perhaps there are programs available that are not being used by the family that would benefit the child. I don’t know, just making suggestions.

    To the pissed off Mom: You ought to be ashamed of yourself making fun of autistic children! If you can’t say anything nice then don’t say anything at all!  I have an 11 year old nephew and He is autistic.  He is absolutely precious.  He is very gifted and talented.  He is so smart and He is an artist!  He can draw anything just by looking at it.  He will be in 5th grade next Tuesday. Do you have children of your own and Do you constantly put your children down too?  You must have had a very unhappy childhood while growing up. Did your parents ever compliment you or Did your parents constantly put you down and just criticize you? Maybe that is why you have a lot of hatred towards autistic children!  So why don’t you go to the website of http://www.lifetime.com and Rent the movie, “Miracle Run.” It’s about 2 twin boys who were born autistic.  With the love and support of their mother, they were able to get Speech Therapy, Etiquette and Manners therapy, Social Skills Training and They had an excellent education because their mother fought for both of her twin boys to get a proper education.

    punctuation, spelling, I am not an expert at either. But I will share this with you, that 92% of unborn babies are aborted when diagnosed with down’s syndrome or other disability. Currently, only 8% of women carrying a handicapped child  carry the child to full term. Apparently, many more people would perhaps agree with the letter writer, and that is the truly scary part.

    This person has no idea what life may offer them.  Perhaps an illness or injury leaving one of their loved ones handicapped/brain damaged.  Or perhaps an Autistic grandchild.  Seriously, people are just rude.  I find it funny that it was a note and not in person, just like the internet today, we say things that we may not say in person.  It is easy to be mean when not seen.  Cowardness at its best.  As a parent of a high functioning Autistic son, they are the most honest of a person you will ever meet.  They will tell you how they feel about something because the will not spare your feelings just to follow the social norm.  I wish at times I had the courage to say the things I really mean.  People do not realize how limited your life is, Autistic people see, feel, hear, and taste all colors of the rainbow.  We are the ones not normal.  I feel they came from GOD with all their sense of being intact, and we have lost ours somehow.  So we judge these poor individuals for being the true angels they are.

    I find the basic lack of empathy very sad.  I find the cruelty overwhelming and frightening.  I find the anonymity cowardly.  Those three items often add up to violence and could indicate the author has a serious mental illness, as well.  Glenn, there is real emotion, just not the emotions that lean toward understanding or helping your neighbor.

    even if this child is out of control doesn’t justify this hate filled letter. Any child technically could become a danger if they behaved in a manner that provoked it. Just because the child is different doesn’t make the idea that they should be euthanized right. If this person is going to write that then they should write that about rebellious teens who seek out danger. A person with good morals could have simply approached the mother of the child and explained their concerns if they felt the child was out of control. This person is just full of hate and they are the one being selfish

    My husband and I have custody of our nine year old grandson, who has autism. We have had him since he was two. I am in tears over this letter. I wish I lived near this cold-hearted person. She is truly the on with the handicap. Euthanize him, a child, a human being??!! The good news is this child can be taught to succeed, to live a life full of accomplishments. He can find someone to love him, apparently this woman has not found that yet. He can get a job, and probably will be very successful in life, unlike this female and everyone else who feels the way she does. It’s pure evil and hate that is taking over this world. The even better news is that the same Jesus that died on the cross for this child, did so for her too. The child will live eternally with Him, she needs to find Jesus.

    Whoever the writer, they are the one with the problem.  People that move into neighborhoods need to expect that other people will be there along with incidentals that they might not find to be normal.  But it goes both ways and people might find certain things about you to be abnormal.  If you aren’t willing to accept this risk, then you should move to a place where neighbors won’t bother you.  

    That said, most communities have code enforcement, and there are time limits on what noises can be made.  People need to have respect for their neighbors who may have different schedules.  If I had to work third shift, yeah, I’d be pretty annoyed at a neighbor who had a kid wailing outside my bedroom window.  But a letter like this is inexcusable.  Go talk to the neighbor and explain your situation, and try to come to a resolution.  If they are not receptive, then let the authorities do their job.  I have a lot of respect for people who take care of family members with disabilities and will gladly give them an extra wide swath.  However, having a family member with a disability doesn’t give anyone the right to run roughshod over others and purposely inconvenience them either.

    @jpeters3270:disqus It is true that the other side is left out of this. It is possible that She has been approached by the neighbor numerous times. It could be that the neighbor just has short nerves and has a Victorian disposition.

    Sometimes its a bit disconcerting the way ASD children act out, stemming, or non-coherent verbal babblings, even out of the blue meltdowns occur at random. These issues are all caused by the environment we reside in, our world, not there’s; we and the world we have created are the problem to them. Coping with it is what you see externally. Their minds are running wide open, all day long.

    ASD children also act out physically to the degree of input they receive. If its negative they sense constantly, they will try to spill off that energy into physical activity or louder babblings to try and block it out.

    if the ASD child can not handle being touched or hugged….. the meltdown just needs to happen and will eventually diminish. Violence, generally, is not in their makeup. Sometimes its a song, humming, a line from a movie, a complex or simple object that can break a meltdown.

    Its nice and all people try to understand, but did this neighbor truly try to understand…. or just continually call names, or did her children, in fear taunt him, call him a freak or wacko numerous times? Did they even try the compassionate, calm route, or understand who he is and come down to his level? Even be educated about the a-typical development?

    I’ve witnessed, first-hand, not 4 ft from an ASD child, three typically developing children say within hearing distance, “he’s wacko, crazy, loco”, and get all the hand gestures along with it. The parent didn’t even try to correct the activity of their children or even explain, ask, take into consideration the feelings of the parent standing right there witnessing the event. Its a rare event to see a parent, the father in this situation, drop a few tears in this venue, smile, and in kind, thoughtful response say, “he’s just different from you and me; special, has an insight and openness to the world we don’t.”

    People think its hard hearing it, seeing it, being tormented by the shrills, whatever, as the Neighbor describes for a few hours a Day. WELL NEIGHBOR – COME SEE THE OTHER SIDE OF LIFE SOMETIME when its 24/8 with no breaks, no one to help, even grandparents desiring to have grandchildren reject them but joyfully accept the typically developing sibling, struggle each day with phone calls to get help to wait 6 months at a time between appointments, what specialized schools are in the area [none], where eating is 1 1/2 tasks, read to them in hopes of a glimmer of verbal communication, hoping for the first question, will they allow you to touch them this Day, trying to teach them Sign to communicate & calling no joy, potty training, dressing, how to sit, how to act, reinforcing positive behavior hoping they catch on, along with multiple meltdowns each Day. Even with all that delayed development and more they surprise you at times with great gifts of compassion, seemingly incredible joy in certain situations and a laugh only an Angel could produce. Those are the moments that give parents hope. You just got to love them no matter what and I’m sure these parents do; very much.

    Other side of the story? Come now. Go volunteer to help one of these couples that have an ASD child for 2-3 Days whatever they do, go or see. Most people operate out of fear, ignorance, complacency, or down-right indignity concerning “different” people outside the mold of their lives.

Noise scared her. She had no speech until age 4, but now she is 23 years old and speaks well and has graduated from a regular high school. Three days a week, she helps her sister in a school for autistic children. She is still learning. She is very talented with art, has a beautiful singing voice and is a joy to be around.

    I sympathize with the lady who wrote the letter.  I’ve been shopping and listened to an autistic child.  You could hear his scream over the entire 60,000 sq. ft. grocery store.  It was horrifying.  I didn’t think to myself that he should be removed, but I was sure glad that my shopping trip was only an hour.  Both sides need to be sensitive to each other.  We chose to live out in the country so that when my husband works outside on an engine, maybe banging around, and playing his radio until late while he works, there is no one around to be disturbed at all.

    What is so amazing is that while being made aware of a letter written with so much hatred and venom, the comments to such are mostly filled back with hatred and venom, either directed towards the letter writer, towards spelling and grammar, towards each other.  :-(

    I have a son with an ASD (Aspergers) and I BEGGED to get him help.  He was diagnosed and misdiagnosed.  At 3 years old, the organization Birth to Three told me nothing was wrong with him.  At 5, having been thrown out of three daycares, the doctors “guessed” from watching that it was Aspergers and a load of other diagnoses, but they do NOT medicated under 6 so I was told.  After pushing on this, the drugs found to be good and safe for kids were excluded by my insurance UNTIL I tried the more dangerous approved drugs first, to which he had side effects and then they put him on the one the doctor suggested first.  Behavior Therapy wasn’t covered by his insurance until just this year (approved last month).  I’m now trying to start him in that and he’ll be 8 in October.  They finally tested him when he was 6 and found that some of the guessed diagnoses were incorrect.  But that was only because of my insistence.

    I’ve spent more time at the schools and picking him up being sent home from daycare than I have at work most days and doing this all myself.  But my son is GENIUS level IQ….141 and they said if he focuses better (ADHD) it could easily be 150 or better.  Moron?  Not at all.  He simply has social problems and aggressive behaviors because of being unable to communicate in a manner the rest of us do.  Who determines who is a moron?  Is it the one who cannot learn the simple task of not eating with their fingers at nearly 8 years old or how to ride a bike or tie their shoes?  While that same child can perform math functions better than many high school students. 

    I think the person who sent the letter is highly misinformed and suffering from anxiety that they need diagnosed and medicated for before they give themselves a stroke.  Maybe this little stunt will get both this child the attention he needs and this neighbor the help they need. 

    And no…I don’t care about my spelling or grammar thank you.

    In the dark ages, children with mental disabilities were kept hidden from society in corn cribs. Thats where they spent their lives. Is that what you, and the author of that letter, think we should go back to? Sounds like a modern day horror movie to me,and shows the typical liberal IN-tolerance. Liberals preach about tolerance yet are always the first to display their intolerance to those who are different.Its obvious that the author of that letter does not value life, or they would not suggest taking a child’s life because of a disability. Who are we to say which life is worthy to be lived or not? Those children living next door, who I doubt really exist, are not in any danger from the autistic child simply because the child makes noises while in the yard. By your logic, I must be in danger from the children living many houses down the road from me,none of whom are disabled, simply because all I hear during the summer while sitting out in my backyard is the noise coming from them. My children are grown, but my now adult son was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder called Aspberger’s Syndrome. We knew he was different from the time he was young, but the actual diagnosis wasn’t made until he was a junior in high school. He went all through school, regular mainstream school,  with little intervention or assistance from pre-school through the 12th grade and graduated with honors. What were we, his parents, to do whe he was diagnosed with Aspbergers at nearly adulthood? Say to him, ‘Sorry son, but we are going to have to put you down, like a dog who has outlived his usefulness’? Really? Is this what we have come to as a society? I hope you, or the author of that letter, never have to deal with a disabled child. Or better yet, I pray that you do,then maybe you will see that God doesn’t give us more than we can handle, and that everyone has a purpose.

    There will always be stupidity and cruelty in this world, but the world could be a much more even playing ground for all if parents/adults taught children to respect others, that life is not fair and that nothing is “promised” in this life, everyone carries burdens, some far more than others. We are doomed as a society without civility, kindness and understanding ! Parents and other adults should educate children of the challenges others face and model behavior that is patient, tolerant and helpful towards others, especially those who are mentally, physically or otherwise challenged . Children of even a very young age can grasp the meaning and rewards of kindness…and thus with continued guidance grow to be caring adults. Of course, it is not all as simple as this..Kindness can not erase the many sources of the world’s pain…But it is the right place to start !

    This is discussting. and to those people who think they know about special needs or autistic children and say that they are a danger, you are ignorant SOB’s who deserve to be humiliated. I mean come on, i have worked with people with developmental problems my whole life in one capacity or another, and the writer and some of the commenters on here , need to be educated. VERY VERY VERY few are ever a danger to anyone, and if they are it is because they have other problems such as PTSD from abuse or some other secondary issue.  YES some to have what is know as “crises’s” but so do normal people. they just have them a little bit more often. but when a “normal” person has a crises we just walk away, or say they must have had a really bad day that is out of the ordinary for that person. it is the same with these people. For those of you talking about Developmentally Challenged individuals, please go take the class SOAR and learn all about crisis’s, how to handle them, and how you can avoid the situation in the first place.

    Instead of having the focus be in correct spelling……you need to look at the meaning and focus on the hate and ignorance behind it. I can understand being frustrated by a constant noise like a barking dog. But this is a human life. He didn’t ask to be born that way, and the letter makes it sound like the Mom just tosses him into the yard alone to run the backyard like a pet. I seriously doubt that this is the case. If it were, then child protective services should be called. If the neighbor is worried about how her children feel, then maybe some education is in order. If she or he is a day sleeper, then perhaps some earplugs are the answer. But to focus on the spelling….is an insult to the greater meaning. And that is of ignorance and a hardened heart. We as a “world” lack compassion. And that is the real tragedy.

  • Amanda Altamirano

    Did anyone read the entire letter and listen to the interview with autistic boy’s parents? First Glenn Beck is the coward and he is a whore for using this for his benefit.  The letter writer stated exactly what she hates and that is the “attitude of entitlement” that people like the person to whom the letter was addressed to. She wrote: “I HATE people like you who believe, just because you have a special needs kid, you are entitled to special treatment!!!” She didn’t say “I hate you” she said “people like you” with the entitlement mentality. So the writer is complaining that this “so called neighbor” is really not a good neighbor at all but is “selfish” by forcing her “baggage” her “responsibilities” on other people. She offered a suggestion “let him play at the park”. I do not find this letter hateful. I find it truthful. The author is much more honest than is Glenn Beck. The parent of the child plays the “victim” card every chance she gets. Did you see how she brought up that she has MS in the interview and can’t keep the boy from running away at the park. Well good for her for knowing her limitations but she played the “victim” card just like racists play the “race” card. She could just have easily have said that she could not keep him from running away from her at the park or she would have taken him there without ever mentioning the “poor me, I’ve got MS” part. MS and autism are related by the way.Both disorders are caused by codependency. Here you can plainly see the selfishness in the mother of this autistic child. First she disregards the feelings of her neighbors (sort of like an autistic can’t empathize with others. She is in her own little world). Second, she puts the boy outside in the front yard every day to get attention for her and to shove it down her neighbors throat. How much tolerance is a good neighbor supposed to have?  Why provoke your neighbor to have tolerance for you?  Certainly, a reasonable amount of tolerance could be expected, but the letter writer is saying that this woman crossed the boundaries and is seeking attention for herself by using her child and is being selfish with respect ot everyone else. THAT IS ABUSE AND WE SHOULD HAVE NO TOLERANCE FOR ABUSE!  I agree with the letter writer. Sure she punctuated her position with some inflammatory statements. And good for her!.  It got it the attention it deserves. She didn’t say euthanize the boy. She said move or euthanize him. But what she was really saying was “lady you are a selfish pig and I wish you would get the hell out of here.” She is not the evil one. The evil one is the mother of that autistic boy for using the child and then for sending this letter to Beck for more self-serving attention and Glenn Beck for whoring himself out over this. The best solution would have been for the parent of the boy to read the letter, be upset by it, do some introspection, look for solutions with her neighbors, ask if any other neighbors were really that offended, and then make the approriate changes and throw the letter away. But no, the drama queen, self appointed, perpetual victim had to cry foul. Let me tell you what hate might have looked like. Someone offended by the childs wailing could have turned loose a couple of pit bull dogs that had been abused for fighting and the dogs would have chewed up the child and the mother. The letter writer did  not talk about violence. She just expressed her anger at the inappropriate, self-serving and abusive actions of the mother. Now it should be plain for you to see why this boy has autism in the first place– just look at his mother. And she had the MS long before the letterwriter pointed things out to her.

    This is just horrid and people are going after the text and not the subject. WHO CARES if it aint spelled gooder than it should be? < You still get the point. Vile, heartless, self absorbed, creatures roam the earth in a people body. Time to call them out and make them feel shamed for their inhumanity. Some poor kid that probably enjoys living and the simple things like watching the clouds go by OUTSIDE or a butterfly flittering past and wishes he could express his joy offends someone with that ability and spews out puke from their bowels is cause for the rest of humanity to stand and speak for him.  SHAME on them and may God bless this kid greatly so he can feel the love people have for him and not the ugly of the few.

    The parents of that kid need to sit back, take a long breath, and think hard what they want to do with this. Broadcasting this to the world and screaming about it won’t solve much.
    I advise they think twice before they have neighborhood meetings, or confront all the neighbors trying to figure out who did this. Why? Because, they risk making innocent neighbors feel uncomfortable about this, as if they are being accused. While it’s clear there is at least one neighbor that doesn’t like them, why go and risk alienating more?
    It would be much wiser for them to seemingly ignore the letter, all the while filing a police report of harassment(from an unknown source). And then, go consult with an attorney on next steps.

    Autistic people can be a danger. Look what happened back east when that Aspie boy had a meltdown and killed his mother and 20 some kindergarteners. If you would read Bettleheim’s book The Empty Fortress, he spoke of exactly this. When the feelings first start to thaw, the first thing that occurs is uncontrollable rage!  Bettleheim was years ahead of his time and he had been rejected by parents in denial.They are in denial because it serves them to be in denial. They feed off their autistic children, as the parent of this autistic boy is doing.  A 200 pound adult male with autism can do some very big damage to other people. This mother said that she couldn’t keep her son from running away at the park and he is 13 years old. How will she be able to restrain him when he is 20? Most cases of autism are a software problem unlike a stroke or cerebral palsey which are hardware problems. The cause is the parent’s codependency which is why is “seems” genetic because codependency runs in families. It’s certainly not air pollution, how many puppies, kittens or other animals that live outside in our environments and are exposed ten times as much as their human companions have autism like disorders?  Autism is environmentally genetic. http://www.autismcauseandcure.com

    You are entirely possibly right!! Something like the Munchin (sorry the name slips my mind) Sydrome where the parent fakes a child’s illness to get sympathy and attention. WOW that was very insightful of you!!. I am embarrased that I missed it. Brian you are quite bright. That also brings up, why didn’t Glenn Beck consider what you just mentioned? What if this letter was written by the mother or the father or the grandmother? Even if it wasn’t, it is WAY more honest than anything the parents have done or said and anything the Glenn Beck is doing. Glenn Beck has a dirty vagina and his mother was a whore too.

  • Amanda Altamirano

    Exactly right!! But the mother is a self perpetuating “victim” and needs all the attention she can buy.

  • Anonymous

    No excuse for this incredibly hurtful letter, none.  But there needs to be a balance and consideration for the sensibilities of others.  If this child is chronically disturbing the peace of the neighborhood, that is not fair either.  Beck’s neighborhood meeting is a good idea.  One of the things that seems to be happening is that the pendulum is swinging from a total lack of consideration and accommodation for the handicapped to accommodation and consideration of the handicapped without any thought or consideration for everyone else.

  • Colby Johnson

    I am not convinced that the composer of this letter is “one pissed off mother” in the neighborhood.  Due to the way the letter was composed, its choppy flow, grammatical errors, immature derogatory terms, and excessive use of exclamation marks, it is obvious the author is uneducated.  It is quite possible this could be an uneducated middle aged mother, however the product seem more consistent with a mal-intended teenager.  Regardless of the author, the hateful message is not justifiable.  However, the crime does seem more consistent with a malicious teenager and if that were the case the problem would be more easily correctable.

  • Amanda Altamirano

    What I heard the letter writer saying is that she hates abuse and that she feels that the parent of this child is abusive to her neighbors. I heard nothing from the parent that she tried to go to her neighbors (indicating a relationship or even concern) to see if they were bothered. She just cried “foul” at the first opportunity. Kind of like Oprah did about the incident she claims was “racist” in Sweden over the $38K handbag. I think Oprah is the real racist in that situation and in this situation, I think that the mother of the autistic child is the real abuser.

    What danger? 

    I can see a danger that an *out-of-control* child with autism could pose to himself, such as running into traffic, or wandering away.  But this letter, as pointed out by others, wasn’t about the danger of this child–it was about the “noises” that the child made and the inconvenience this child posed to that neighbor.

    I have a child with autism.  Anyone who wants to comment about the behaviors of a kid with autism . . . well, come live with an autism family for a day.  You will get a lot better understanding of said person by the time the day is over!

    To the letter writer I would respond:
    Your barking dogs and crying babies may be normal sounds in a neghborhood but they are annoying as hell, should we euthanize them too for thier natural behavior? We are expected to be tolerant of dysfunctional families, Forgive criminals, “immoral” behavior, Godlessness, cheaters, liars, thieves, and corrupt businessmen and politcians.
    If we “euthanized” everyone who behaved in a way or made noises that were annoying to me I would be the only one left in my neighborhood maybe even the world. The writer of this letter would be the first to go. People who have no compassion for the innocence of a child born with this affliction are bad enough, people who are as cruel as you definately deserve to be euthanized.

    And yet, you seem to completely miss the point that the letter writer didn’t even try to calmly deal with the situation. The boy is a human being, NOT a dog. It doesn’t matter that he makes noise or that he’s irritating. Perhaps what the parents of the boy need is support, not criticism. Since you seem to feel that the pendulum has swung too far, how would you “cure” this young man’s autism and the noise? Please, enlighten the rest of us…oh, I’m sorry…you know nothing about what it takes to deal with an autistic child. Perhaps someday, the pendulum will swing YOUR way and perhaps you’ll be able to muster a minuscule modicum of human compassion. Or perhaps you would just give the child away because of the inconvenience. Hey, that’s dealing with it isn’t it?

    Yes, I agree with the other person on here who wonders why grammar  and spelling is being discussed when the safety of a child is the main issue.  Yes, it’s obvious that the person who wrote this letter is an inconsiderate, dumbass, but I believe that makes him (or her) all the more dangerous!  This woman needs to make a copy of the letter and take the original to the police.  This is a threatening, frightening description of what this awful person is thinking about this child.  Actions first start as a thought.  Not saying the person would act on it, but as a parent, I’m not going to wait to find out.  Get the law involved and also, sometimes (lots of times) you can do a little detective work, and use  commen sense (who’s got kids in your neighborhood who would be frightened of of your child’s verbalizations?) Then notice who acts hostile toward you.  Actions speak louder than words.  I bet the mother can figure out who it is but she would need proof of who it is.  Glenn’s idea of putting this letter in every mailbox with a note about it is an excellent idea.  Then people would know they’re living in close proximity to violence-minded person.  Finally, HOW DARE THEY DO THIS!  This poor child probably knows what’s going on and is embarrassed and totally unable to comment on it or do anything about it.  This child has just as much right to be out in HIS OWN FRONT YARD as any other kids does.  This makes me ANGRY!  I have an autistic son and if anyone talked about my son this way, well, all I can say is they would get two earfuls from me.  I feel sorry for the city of Ontario, they have one intolerant creep in their midst who has no idea of the small battles and victories that go on in this child’s home on a daily basis.  God Bless this child and his family!

    Then why was the mother of this autistic kid abusing her neighbors by sticking the kid out there in their faces day after day. Is that how she would like to be treated say if she worked the night shift and was trying to sleep during the day or if her little ones were trying to nap?  The mother of the autistic child cared nothing for her neighbors and she was abusive to them. This is not about the child (it could be any other noise for that matter). It is about respect of ones neighbors, tolerance and abuse. Tolerance is good but we should never tolerate abuse. In this case, it would seem that abuse came first. The mother of the autistic child never mentioned talking with other neighbors to see if any of them felt the same way. She is in her own little world and is the center of her universe and she wants the world to bow down to her as god and the godless Glenn Beck, not knowing the truth, bought into this “victim” fabrication hook, line and sinker.

    No she is just passionate and she has balls that Glenn Beck can only dream of having. Glenn calls her a coward when he is the one with the dirty vagina for giving this selfish, self perpetuating victim air time to feed her insatiable need for attention. The autistic boy is not the issue. His behavior is not the issue. The mother of the autistic boy’s “attitude of entitlement” is the issue. She craves attention and she is willing to abuse others in order to “demand” it from them. You have no right to be free of criticism or free of offense in this great country. This mother is what is wrong with society. When she got that letter she should have done some introspection, checked with her neighbors to see how they felt and then acted on a local level either by changing her behavior or just throwing the letter out. But perhaps she doesn’t have any neighbors as friends because likely she has abused them all.

    Yes, it MUST be abuse. After all, no reasonable parent would ever allow their child to go outside, especially if they might make noise. That obviously constitutes abuse. After all, it wouldn’t be abuse to just lock the child in a room. Letting them go outside is MUCH worse.

    What I like about this letter is that it is not “lukewarm”. Glenn Beck is such a mugwamp, pussy he could never write with such passion and truth. (Mugwamp= sitting on the fence, mug(face) on one side, wamp(ass) on the other, counterfeit, fraud).

  • Amanda Altamirano

    It’s clear that you do not know what you are talking about. The sociopath is the mother of the autistic child and you seem to be the one identifying with her.

    For other reader’s clarification, I “listened” to the meaning of what the letter writer was communicating and got past the inflammatory comments which she just used to punctuate her passion. Her anger was directed at the mother’s disrespectful abuse and sense of entitlement; not at the child. Perhaps many divorces would be avoided and autistic kids wouldn’t be autistic if people developed their listening skills. That is why God gave you 2 ears and only 1 mouth. BTW maybe autistic children aren’t speaking because no one is listening. 

    BTW I am a former, non verbal autistic who is 100% recovered and I know what caused me to go “in there” and what brought me “out” and I remember every detail from the time I was 1 1/2 years old and I can tell you what it is like “in there” and the reason for each and every behavior and symptom of autism. And I can go “in there” and bring others like this 13 year old boy out. I can explain it in full. Temple Grandin can not because she is still autistic. Carly Fleishman can’t because she is still autistic. I have been where they both were. I am 100% recovered and I can tell you ALL about autism, the cause, the cure, and how to prevent it.

     She is a ‘passionate’ loser who has no guts to speak of because she didn’t even sign her name. The mother of the autistic child has every right to make it public (probably thinking of the safety of her son) in case anything happens to him. You sound like an unfeeling jerk who is a proponent of abortion, hate crimes and euthanasia for ‘undesirables’. The mother has not abused anyone according to this article, the writer abused the mother ruthlessly and heartlessly, for no other reason than NOISE when the child is outdoors. Children are allowed to make noise when they play!! That is natural!!

  • jesusknight

     If a child wants to play in their own back yard, and the parent is ok with it, what does it matter if the neighbors like it or not?? Its what a child is supposed to do; you know, be a child!! I’ve worked nights too, and if I didn’t like noise from my neighbors, who have a right to do what they want in their own yards, I just put cotton in my ears. It does not warrant a hateful letter like that at all. Your priorities are twisted around. ALL of us have ‘rights’, and we ALL need to respect them. That goes BOTH WAYS.

  • Amanda Altamirano

    You are not required to have a relationship with anyone and most people don’t have “relatioinships” any more. They have “interactions”. She does not have to worry about “bothering” her neighbors.  But she also has to play by the community rules, perhaps they just need to measure the noise volume. Any CCR’s? She has no right to expect tolerance. Tolerance is a gift of grace. Maybe her neighbors should just call the cops on her day and night.  Maybe she doesn’t want to have any friends when the boy gets loose and runs in front of a car. Overall, she doesn’t need anyone. And we don’t need to donate any tax dollars to peoplel like this that all they want is to take from the community but not give back to it. Let her live there alone with her kid. Put up block walls on all the other properties. Never help her. She doesn’t want to be a part of a community that is obvious. That is why her son checked out on her.

     I would call a neighborhood meeting and hopefully the person that wrote this would show up. Then offer help to whoever is not able to handle being around this child. This person is obviously beyond the stress point of reality. Sounds like they are just letting off steam that has built up for awhile now. The screams from the child are hard to handle if the person doesn’t know how to handle it. She has ran out of ways to explain this child to her own children. If she isn’t helped it sounds like it would go onto more serious implications, and her own children will grow up not understanding how to accept and handle a mentally disturbed individual.

  • Toots

    I agree that this is a horrible letter. If I was the Mom of this child I would not put him out side alone . Also she should have a tent set up for him to get in when he feels scared. Most children with this disability have over stimulation problems and are fearful. Maybe that is why he cries out so much. If I was a neighbor I would ask if there was a way I might help her with the child. I bet she is very tired also. Love covers a lot of problems.

    Actually, I’m a physician and a scientist. YOU don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re not a recovered autistic. You’re an unmedicated sociopath. And yes, this mother’s rage WAS directed at the child. Remember Altimorono (you just have to love how a simple play on your name means “the pinnacle of moronic behavior”), she said the mother should kill the child because he would never contribute to society. Perhaps, if you identify with her, you should wonder why your parents didn’t just murder you for the good of mankind. From your postings, it is obvious that you are a non-contributing member of society who offers absolutely nothing worthwhile. Based on your reasoning, you should not be alive. If you feel so strongly about that, are you willing to act on what you advocate should have been done with autistic children in the first place?
    Your attitude is shameful and evil. You actually think you can “cure” autism? You can go “in there” and “bring out” the autistic? What, now you believe you can possess the souls of autistics? You need help. It’s likely medication will never be successful in treating your particular sociopathy, but a long admission to a locked psychiatric facility would at least remove your particular malignancy from the general population.

    In case you retain the possibility of just the tiniest shred of human decency lost somewhere in the deepest recesses of the vacuous void of your soul, the legal system is not based on a person’s annoyance level. You obviously can’t tolerate much of anything outside your self centered existence. How about if we judge you based on how annoying you are perceived to be. Your right to live or die is based solely on whether or not whatever you are supposedly contributing offsets the annoyance that the very fact of your existence causes to those around you. If you happen to live next to a crotchety old lady or someone just like you, you’re dead. Fair enough, right? Because that’s exactly what you’re saying.
    I’m pretty certain though that you have no ability to either feel compassion or conceive of another person outside of your immediate existence. You’re more disturbed by someone posting that placing an unregistered letter into a mailbox is a federal crime than the concept of condemning a child to death for annoying you or, god forbid, your “normal” children. That is what my colleagues in the psychiatric field would call sociopathy. It’s an inability to feel what other people feel. It would never occur to you to offer help to those parents or rally around them so that, through your kindness, they might be able to have a break. That’s inconceivable to someone like you. After all, what’s in it for YOU?
    To you and all of the appallingly compassion challenged people that this subject has brought out of the woodwork to post on this thread, you need to examine yourselves and the motivations that would lead you to empathize more with a sociopathic person than with the parents of an autistic child. Who is truly lacking? I know you believe that your belief in the supreme goal of only caring about yourself is a right that also entitles you to condemn an innocent to death for the crime of not being in abject subjection to your self worship, but it is NOT. There is nothing you have accomplished in your life that entitles you to condemn to banishment or death an innocent child because you find them annoying. I would venture that were I to hold a vote on how annoying other people find YOU, you’d qualify under your reasoning for exactly what you are advocating. But I don’t hold any hope that a person who identifies with sociopathic qualities is capable of understanding why.

    Forgive me if my punctuation and spelling isn’t correct but I thought this was about hate and in justice. This Mother didn’t choose an autistic child but she is doing her best to raise one. Should she hide him in a basement and tape his mouth shut so he can’t disturb his neighbors? I’m sure the neighbors are shocked at this cruel letter and all are looking at those in the immediate neighborhood with suspicion. Man up or Woman up whoever wrote this piece of garbage and address the family in person otherwise, SHUT UP!

     It’s a sad world we’re living in…..I’m just blown away by the hatred.  You know, it brings to mind cross burning on the front lawns of African Americans who finally were able to buy a home in a “white” neighborhood.  It’s the same kind of thing.  More and more children are autistic, what is it….one in 600 now?  When not long ago it was extremely rare.  These children….also by the way are not “retarded”; as a matter of fact they are often very bright.  Even that word…”retarded”…yuck….what an ugly word to apply to a human being. 

    We are God’s children.  Each and every one of us is precious to Him, even the nasty person who wrote this horrible letter.  We should all reach out and try to be kind even to those whom we don’t understand, or agree with, or who maybe scare us a little.  That person has some karma issues comin’ down the road.

    And I just wanted to say to you grammar critics….while I agree that you should at least be able to spell if you are going to call someone else “retarded” or a “moron”,  I just think in this type of forum, though, you should write with your voice…in other words…write it how you would say it.  It helps to convey emotion that is otherwise lacking in the written word.

    i favor the neighborhood meeting scenario, but i would want to have some sort of outside mediator there, such as a local law enforcement resource person, clergy, or city council representative.  a physician or psychologist who specializes in autism would be good to have on hand to educate neighbors.  people’s hearts need to be changed to see all people as truly equal before hate like this will subside.

    It’s said but those of us who has special needs children will sometimes encounter people who are not kind, who become so disgusted they feel that they their space has been violated.  One comment made was all these children should be lined up against a wall and shot,  put them out of their misery.  My daughter had CP. and many other problems.  She never spoke a word but had a beautiful smile  and she was so happy.  Never was able to walk and do any of the normal things children do.  She died at 15 and we miss her just like any other normal family who losses a child.  I say a special prayer for all parents who have special needs children,  and those who have children with cancer.  These families needs your love and support, not hateful name calling.  This so called mother is a disgusting person, and she is a terrible example for her children.  A loving mother would be down on her knees thanking God for her healthy children, and praying for families who are not as fortunate,

    Technically, if I guy takes a piss in his own front yard and makes NO sexual advances towards you, it’s indecent exposure at best. It certainly is NOT a sex crime, dunce.
    ALL kids scream and run into the street, there is no “special treatment.” That is B S. You think someone should call the police and measure one kids “noise” level over another? Whether YOU or anyone else likes it or not, there is NO “special treatment.” They have a right to live also, not like lepers because people like you are free to move also. In fact, why don’t you move to savage country where someone like you is not “tolerated.”

    Dear P’ed off mother, 
     You are a cowardly individual who should be hitting your knees & thanking God for the children you have that do not have any handicaps. However, instead you are making yourself a classic example to your children of what this country needs much less of…………..IDIOTS! It is people like you that makes me glad I was raised by two parents who had the compassion for the less fortunate in the world to help out & assist in the lives of crippled children, blind people and others with needs. My parents were charter members of a local Lions club and past presidents as well and I was taught at a very early age to respect people for who they were not their physical limitations or lack thereof. You are one shallow individual; if you had to voice your opinion at least sign your name if you can’t sign your name to your feelings in  the letter don’t stuff it in your neighbors mailbox. Sneaky worthless piece of work is what you are my dear.But, keep this in mind………God knows who you are & he has the last word! Sleep well Mrs. Pissed

  • greywolfrs

    Wrong again, her and her child have done nothing that any other child doesn’t do, including making noise and running in the street. ALL kids do those things, if you don’t like kids or the noise they make, move to an adult ONLY place.

    Could you educate me and show me where putting mail into a mailbox without being a postal worker is somehow illegal?
    I will use it to avoid getting coupons to this massage place that leaves them in my mailbox every month…I will call the cops on them and tell them jesus [knight] told me I can!

    Obviously the letter writer went overboard. I don’t like to hide behind anonymous letters (notice my post is under my name and not under Jesusknight)but I do empathize with her. My godfather ran a mental house for special kids, and when I went to visit him I got a first hand perspective of how special these kids can be. 

    What she should have done is gone over and spoke man to man or in her case woman to woman with the lady and told her about her issue. If the problem couldn’t be resolved through dialogue then you move on to other means of diplomacy. 

    There is no need to be so flagrantly mean to the poor child, but I do feel bad for her having to put up with this. I wouldn’t put up with it.

    I know she didn’t go about the best way in dealing with the situation, but the mother of the special child needs to care about other people as well…the ones that have a right to enjoy their property in peace. 

    You obviously feel strongly about this case, as demonstrated by the War and Peace you wrote above, and I will not change your mind. Nor do I want to change anyone’s mind; I just wanted to bring a different point of view to an issue that you seem to dismiss because of the way it was brought about, instead of focusing on the underlying issue. 

    On a different note- you insult me and a lot of other people in your post. That diminishes your argument. 

  • jesusknight

     Considering the letter stated for her to donate her living child’s ‘normal’ body parts to science, ignoring the letter seems insane and invites trouble. If the innocent feels ‘uncomfortable’, maybe they should; they are harboring a maybe violent person in their neighborhood who wants to dismember a CHILD who plays in their own yard. Think about that! Would you want someone who harbors such hate and anathema around YOUR kids? She might think like that about ALL kids, not just this one; this is only one she is venting about, there might be more. She needs to be found; and the neighborhood should keep a good eye on their kids, who knows what she will do?

    This is ridiculous. I would sue the writer of the letter for discrimination, Just to let her know that her self centered attitude is horrific.

Considering the ‘pissed off mother’ stated that the ‘normal’ body parts of this living, breathing CHILD should be removed and donated to science shows how far off the deep end she really is. That is scary! Parents should take extra care with their kids in that area, who knows what that deranged person will do?

    It is different for each state; I suggest you contact your local post office to find out. I found out when I was a marketer and was informed by my local police because I was putting flyers in (not on) the mailboxes of my neighborhood, and I was informed that it was a crime, and was made to take them out of the ones I had already put the flyers in. He also told me to put them on the doors instead. In my neighborhood, that is where our pizza circulars go, on the doors of our houses, not our mailboxes, or in the newspaper, which also does not go in our mailbox, but is thrown into the yard.

  • jesusknight

     The ticked off mother said she should take his body parts and donate them to science. This is a living, breathing CHILD, whom she wants to dismember. Then she actually mailed it. Any parent with a brain would consider that a threat. I would think that diminishes HER argument totally.

  • jesusknight

     Complaining?? She wasn’t just ‘complaining’. She said that the autistic living breathing CHILD should be dismembered and his ‘normal parts’ given to science. That is WAY OVER THE LINE, and becomes rather threatening to the receiver of that note. Its very WRONG!

If so, then I, and millions of others, hope the person is found and prosecuted. If they can’t prosecute, then they should ridicule and shame the person.

  • LoveMyCountry

    It is unthinkable that someone would write such a letter of hatred against a special needs child and not even consider how he or she has been blessed with a “normal” child, or whatever. It would serve this person right to become pregnant with an autistic child, or for him or her to have a grandchild in such a situation. Matter of fact, assuming that the letter writer has a child, I believe that someday this evil person WILL have an autistic grandchild. I actually PRAY that they do!!  What comes around, goes around.  They will surely reap what they have sown.

    A child that is Autistic isn’t handicapped and won’t always be like that. Many children who are autistic eventually manage to become productive members of society. I had a college professor who was autistic. Many times with therapy and hard work breakthoughs happen. I think the neighbor is selfish and should be the one that moves. I am shocked at how thoughtless and inconsiderate people have become. I have woke up in a world I don’t understand.

  • Anonymous

    After reading over the nitpicking in the comments below, I almost didn’t leave a comment. Point taken, that the woman is not eloquent, and does not fully control her writing and grammar skills. That being said, she is a fast growing part of the population, and there are several reasons for it. Mainstreaming kids into school, parents of children with disabilities being more willing to take them out in public. And, while I hate to admit it, those same parents feeling entitled to tolerance or special attention. I am a nurse that works exclusively with pediatric, damaged children (broad spectrum). I have that patience. I watch many (not all) pander to these children who could have much  more control over their behavior with just a little training. Yes, they have a damaged child–trached and vented, just trached, heart anomalies, autism, Down;s Syndrome, Treacher Collins Syndrome, and many more. But, while most of these parents raise their children responsibly, many (and I see it first hand) raise monsters, and they take them out in public to restaurants, disturbing the meals and conversations of others, or through a grocery store, where they pull things from people’s buggies, or knock things off shelves, and some are inclined to be very, very loud. Truth is, I understand some of the sentiment of people that have issues with parents “turning their kids loose on a neighborhood”. I love my little clients, and I do this for a living. Not everyone is able to do it, and I feel that when you go to a restaurant, you should not have to deal with other people’s misbehaved children. I would not move, if I were this lady. I would tell her, “when the police cite me for violation of some kind of noise ordinance, I’ll take your venom under advisement.” I Know people will rip me, but I do understand the people that don’t want to deal with someone else’s problem. And, I don’t think it is fair the way some people with afflicted children force them on the world, and specifically people, expecting them to deal with it. That woman above, though, is just mean. She doesn’t know what God has planned for that child. He might be the first cure. Don’t know why I would expect her to believe in God, either. That is the biggest problem in the world today…no faith, and a push to run us all Muslim, atheist, and socialist. Ah well…too long, and just my two cents.

    Silly knight, read the entire letter. She was angry because the mother of the child was crossing boundaries and inflicting abuse on her and the other neighbors. She was also angry about this woman and people like her that feel “entitled” to special treatment. The comments about donating body parts and euthania were just punctuation marks and she was trying to hurt this woman like this woman was hurting her and others. The letter was directed to the mother and not sent to the child.
      If a black woman in a car cut me off while driving and then rushed her car ahead of me into a parking place and I felt abused, I might call her a nigger. It may have nothing to do with race, but I know that it “might” bother her, so for that reason alone I might say it. I am really just angry at a person for being selfish, reckless and rude and not racist at all. It was just an opportunity to hurt her back. I’m not saying that I would do this but some people would and it’s still logical.

    Are you divorced? I bet your codependency score is up around 80-90%. Was the father codependent? an alcoholic? drug user? ADHD? Schizoprenic? BiPolar? I am a Dr., scientist, geneticist, researcher and teacher. My areas of expertise are in genetics, (I was doing cloning research and micromanipulating embryos 30 yrs ago. Some published.), reproduction, and autism. I was autistic. I am no longer autistic. With 100% certainty, the parents codependency is the cause of most (90-95%) autism cases. 

    This statement you made sounds to me like you are patting yourself on the back “It takes strong parents to take care of these children, and GOD must of seen fit.”

    Go take a codependency test. Then do one for the father and for all 4 grandparents. 

    Autism is “environmentally genetic” it runs in families of codependents.

    Maybe the Bible answers the question you posed. There is a parable about a deaf or blind or crippled man (I don’t quite remember exactly) and the question was put to Jesus “Who sinned this man or his parents that caused this man to be like this?” Jesus answered saying that it was neither because of his sin or his parents sins but so that God could be glorified. So it’s a fallen world. Codependency is idolatry. It’s not because of the sins but the sin condition. God doesn’t want any person to be autistic. But you have to come out of codependency to be healed. You can’t end run God. Who would get the glory if that were possible?

  • Amanda Altamirano

    You sure put a lot of it on God. Is He responsible for every rude decision the mother made? Perhaps, that letter was “her sign”.

    Be tolerant of some things but don’t tolerate abuse. If the mother willfully stuck her kid out there to force “tolerance” that is wrong. If she didn’t know how her neighbors felt, then now she does. It she didn’t know, then I wonder what kind of neighbor she was being. You do reap what you sow and maybe this mother just reaped what she had sown?

    You say “back yard” I thought this letter was about the unfenced “front yard”? And even if the letter isn’t to your liking, throw the damn thing out. Don’t step up and cry “victim” for attention of the universe. She is pulling an Oprah in Sweden with this. Wait until more of the facts come out.

  • Amanda Altamirano

    What I heard the letter writer saying is that she hates abuse and that she feels that the parent of this child is abusive to her neighbors and that she thinks the mother thinks she is “entitled” to special treatment that the others don’t get. I heard nothing from the parent that she tried to go to her neighbors (indicating a relationship or even concern) to see if they were bothered. She just cried “foul” at the first opportunity. Kind of like Oprah did about the incident she claims was “racist” in Sweden over the $38K handbag. I think Oprah is the real racist in that situation and in this situation, I think that the mother of the autistic child is the real abuser and that she is in need of an insatiable supply of attention. And Glenn Beck being the alcoholic, drug addict codependent that he is fell for the lie hook, line and stinker!

    My goodness!  Use of irony in my posting certainly did kick over a wasps’ nest.  Do I really believe that poor grammar and unintentionally amusing misspellings are the worst thing about the monster who wrote the letter?  Hardly.  But then that ground has been well covered.  Obviously this person would have been very comfortable with, nay, enthusiastic about the Third Reich’s eugenics policies that wiped out Germany’s handicapped of every ilk.  She has demonstrated the capacity to conceive of murderous plans and to couch them terms of societal decency and obligation.  Himmler or Goebels couldn’t have done better.  She’s in their league.  I rather doubt that she’d have had the credentials to have risen to the top of the Nazi medical/eugenics hierarchy, but I could easily imagine this hausfrau rushing down to headquarters with list in hand.  It would contain, besides the more obviously afflicted, children whose noises were unusual and movements ungainly, the homely, grandpa and grandmas requiring tending, and probably anyone else who ever crossed this woman.  But then, you all know that. 

    The irony is that a very imperfect woman is trying to persuade a loving mother that she is socially obligated to murder her own child for neighborliness’ sake, and she does it in a way that shouts her own flaws.  She punctuates like a speed freak and makes spelling errors, “whaling” for “wailing,” that would be comic in other circumstances. Thar she blows!  And of course the point of all that ignorant and jumbled verbiage is this: Your child is not normal like mine, therefore your child should die for the sake of neighborhood tranquility.  Grotesque.  I have no doubt but that her Maker has life events planned for her that will teach her how truly evil she has been.  Or Hell awaits if she fails to learn.  As for critiquing her writing style, it’s just a use of irony, like the guy who says he’d kill to have the Nobel Peace Prize.  What we think is generally all in agreement, we just don’t all express it in the same ways, especially when others have already said it many times.

    The letter is out of control. However, none of us live in the neighborhood where the “howling” is going on. Maybe all the other neighbors also wish the mom would care for the child herself and keep him inside at least part of the day.
    There are at least a thousand more loving ways this could have been mentioned, however. As for euthanizing handicapped children. Why is that not hate speech?

    I have sympathy for the kid and his family, but how much right do you have to get to disturb the peace and quality of life of your neighbors?   I think the neighbor’s letter was absolutely cruel and there should’ve been a better way to talk about this and resolve it.

    I think you have mis-read my post. Abuse is when a child, special needs or not, is relegated to the yard or a locked room. It is particularly egregious when the child is special needs. Some autistic children can become fascinated by the nature around them and be quite comfortable outside alone, others may demand attention – and lacking it from the parents – try to demand it from the neighbors.

    I prefaced my post by saying we don’t know the real circumstances in this case. Obviously locking any child in a room is abuse, but leaving one who has needs for regular attention out in the yard is also abuse.

    We just don’t know enough to judge, although we do know enough to say the letter was hatefully written. If this child is investigating the grass and the trees, and digging up worms to examine them (I did that) then the time alone outside is helpful. But if he is going a bit batty in his isolation from his parents then it is not appropriate.

    Reading between the lines of the nasty letter my best guess is that the parents are not properly nurturing their child, there is an extra responsibility when there is a “special need”. BTW, I hate the term “special needs” – but it does cover the bases when we are speaking of a circumstance we don’t know.

    A child can be warehoused in a locked room, or in a barn, or in a fenced lawn – the warehousing is the lack of regular attention by the parents. And if the lawn isn’t fenced then they are doubly guilty as the child could wander off and be badly injured in traffic or some other way.

    This letter almost caused me to lose my mind! This is the same type of narcissist that voted for our president. After all, he voted against the  ” Born alive act. ” Every life, no matter how trivial it may seem to this ” Richard Cranium ” is a special life and important to not only this family, but to society as well. I am particularly upset about this letter, because I have a child who is handicapped. He is almost seven years old and we have to do everything for him as if he were a newborn. I will tell you that my son Ezekiel saved my life and helped me to kick my alcoholism. God doesn’t have to explain to us why some things happen the way they do, but He does expect us to love these children with no less enthusiasm than we love our other children with. For people like this one who wrote this asinine letter. Why don’t you step outside of your own little world and walk in somebody else’s shoes for once. As for as you suggesting euthanizing this child. I would be very careful if I were you because God tells us,    Matthew 18:6  “But whoever causes harm to
    one of these little ones, it would be better if a millstone were hung
    around his neck and he were drowned in the depths of the sea.”

    While I categorically disagree with the letter and despicable intent therein, it doesn’t seem that anyone is even trying to look at this from the writer’s point of view.  As a former military member and aviator, there have been many times when I have had to sleep during daylight hours for a night flight or simply wanted to quietly relax, but was unable due to outside noises.  I don’t know the specifics of this situation, but I believe it could be somewhat likened to the barking of an uncontrollable dog in a neighborhood.  Is it not the dog owner’s responsibility, or in this case the child’s parents, to ensure that the child’s autism (if he is, in fact, “wailing”) is not infringing on the rights of others in the neighborhood?  The writer of this letter had obviously reached her limit and I can understand that position even though she approached the situation in very bad form.  And for those who would suggest that the writer move to somewhere quieter, I would pose that she may have been there first and that there are possibly legal noise statutes for the area.

    To One pissed off mother there are other ways of dealing with the situation how about walking up to the door knocking and/or ringing the doorbell. Politely ask the mother or  grandmother could you please keep your child in the house during these hours then  state your concerns. How dare you send such a horrible letter as for your children being normal. Things have been known to go wrong in people lives accidents/illness they may not stay healthy forever. But that is life . This child did not ask to be born this way. I’m sure his parents didn’t ask for this either. You are the one who needs to get off your high horse show a little compassion for these people.

    A mother has received a letter instructing her to KILL HER CHILD; authors of comments below, are you seriously debating over the topic of  SPELLING and GRAMMATICAL ERRORS?!?! That’s pitiful and shame on you! 

    This story is deeply discouraging to me. I work with Special Needs children and the laughs, quirky squeals and sometimes screams can be deafening, annoying and repetitive at times, yet tolerable and enjoyable other times by a compassionate ear and heart when realizing it’s each child’s language. I hope this hate letter is incriminating enough to get the writer convicted of a hate crime with an intent of conspiring to influence another in the murder of a child.

    This is disgusting! The hateful, evil person who wrote this anonymously is a weak, fearful and secretly dangerous person. Someone who had a real concern for the noise and activities that affect the neighborhood should have made a peaceful attempt to meet with the family of the Autistic child and discussed the matters maturely. Instead, bitterness has taken over someone to the breaking point of unleashing unrealistic, angry and hateful propaganda such as this letter.

    The lack of loving compassion and respect of our neighbors is leading to an increasingly destructive world as a whole. Jesus put it quite plainly, but none the less important, “Love thy neighbor as thyself”. The world would be such a better place. Hearts would be healthier. Homes would be healthier. Communities would be healthier and an entirely new epidemic would overturn evil-willed jargon such as this letter.

    Tolerance for the wrong things and intolerance for things that don’t need it… that’s just one of the reasons this country – heck, the world – is the way it is right now. Who the hell does that person behind the letter think they are? Just because their neighbor’s kid is autistic does NOT mean they are defective! His brain’s just wired differently from most people’s, and that’s no reason to even SUGGEST he be put down like a sick dog!! What would happen if everyone even suspected to have autism – kids and even adults – was killed for that simple reason? We’d end up with massive GENOCIDE on our hands, that’s what!!
    That sad excuse for a neighbor needs to get their head out of their rear end. Maybe the fresh air they’d get by doing so will restore what little common sense they might have had.

    This is what I saw posted as the mother’s response to the letter:
     
    Dear “One pissed off mother”,Your letter has left me feeling terribly sad. Not for me, or for my son Maxwell — that’s his name by the way, not “retard” or “wild animal kid” — but for you. In reality, I will never share your thoughts with my son, because he is a happy child who brings an incredible amount of joy to those who know him. And while your words were very hurtful to read, the support …I receive from my family, friends, and my more understanding neighbours lifts me up on a daily basis and outweighs anything you could ever say to me. The fact that you have chosen to address me anonymously gives me some insight that somewhere deep down, you know that what you wrote to me is wrong, and that gives me hope. Because those who know that they’ve done wrong sometimes want to do better, I want to help you know my son. Perhaps then you will open your heart to the beautiful person he is. If not, I will at least know that you have been provided with the opportunity to become educated, and that maybe something good will come out of your negativity and misguided hatred. Maxwell has a diagnosis of autism. He is not “mentally handicapped” or “retarded”. Autism is a disorder of brain development characterized by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication, and repetitive behaviours. The noises he makes that you describe as “dreadful” are in fact the way he expresses happiness. He loves being outside, and shares the right to enjoy the outdoors just as you or I do. Perhaps you find his form of expression unpleasant, but if you took the time to meet Maxwell and got to know him, I would like to think he could bring a smile to your face. Maxwell loves jumping on his trampoline, playing on his iPad, hanging out with his family, and reading books. Most of the time he has a smile on his face, and he has never said a cruel word to anybody. You could actually learn a lot from him. Because of the lack of empathy in your letter, it seems likely to me that you have not had the privilege of having a close friend or family member with special needs. This is a great shame for you and your “normal” children. You do yourself and them a disservice by limiting who you interact with. There is no reason to be scared. In fact, people with special needs have much more reason to fear intolerant individuals such as yourself. My son is a gentle soul who would never want to hurt anyone — physically or with hateful words such as the ones you typed in that letter. A great man named Mahatma Gandhi once said, “A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members.” While you and I clearly have very little in common, we both live in Canada — a nation that passed The Canadian Human Rights Act in 1977, which states, “All individuals should have an opportunity equal with other individuals to make for themselves the lives that they are able and wish to have and to have their needs accommodated, consistent with their duties and obligations as members of society, without being hindered in or prevented from doing so by discriminatory practices based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, disability or conviction for an offence for which a pardon has been granted or in respect of which a record suspension has been ordered.” If you need me to put that in simpler terms for you, the law states that Maxwell has just as much right to live his life without being discriminated against as you do. If you have a problem with that, it seems to me that you’re the one who should move to a trailer in the woods where you hopefully won’t be too annoyed by the sounds made by actual wild animals. Yours truly, Katrina Carefoot, one proud mother

    Richard,
    Why couldn’t this person just walk up to the frond door and explain the
    situation. Why write a note then sign it “ONE PISSED OFF MOTHER”  why didn’t she sign her name to the letter?  SHE (if it is a she) had the nerve to write the letter but she didn’t have the nerve to say it to their faces!!!!!!!  I think that’s one of the things  people are angry about.This person is the real coward here to tell this family to move and the suggest that the family euthanize this child how cruel can one person be?

    Open letter
    to “One Pissed off Mother”

    Dear “Mother”

    I, like many
    others, have read the letter that you wrote to Brenda Millson of Newcastle
    Ontario.  As I understand from your
    letter nobody else in your neighbor hood has the guts to tell this grandmother
    that they want her to move.  You must be
    pleased with yourself that you are the strong one who anonymously wrote this letter
    and then with great cowardice slipped it under her front door.  There are many, many people around the world
    who would like to hear more from you, I am certain that if you contacted your
    local TV news, or for that matter, any international news agency they would be
    happy to let you speak out against this 13 year old boy you have diagnosed as “retarded”.

    The
    terminology you use in your letter speaks volumes about your education and I
    must admit I am impressed with your ability to diagnosis the child as “retarded”.  There are very few professionals who use this
    terminology these days and I wonder if maybe you are still speaking as you may
    have when you were about 9 or 10.  Or perhaps
    this is terminology you have learned from your fearful but “normal” children.  I am even more impressed with your skills
    because I suspect you have never actually met him.  You also speak of “euthanizing” the
    child.  From this I can deduce that you
    are one of the rare revolutionary and forward thinking individuals of our
    time.  You deserve a place among the illustrious
    others who have entertained your avenue of thinking.   Individuals such as Mussolini, Saddam Hussein,  and Adolf Hitler.  Or perhaps you subscribe to the practice of
    Eugenics and would be in favor of everyone who has special needs be either forcibly
    sterilized or euthanized. 

    Did you know
    that 33% of the population either has or will have a disability?  This means that based on your way of thinking
    that one out of every three people should be euthanized.  Do you know how many active and productive members
    of society fall on the Spectrum?  Do you
    even know what it means?  Look up “autism
    spectrum disorder” maybe you will learn something.

    Maybe you
    will learn that people with autism, or people with any type of disability for that
    matter, want the same things that we all want. 
    Love, shelter, food, comfort, education, humor, help, encouragement and
    respect.  Do you have these things?  People do not want to be labeled!  They want to be known for who they are, not
    by how you choose to label them.  I am
    sure that by now you know that you are one of the labeled, you will always be
    known as “One pissed off mother”.  You
    will bare this title for the rest of your life even if no one else ever knows
    who wrote that letter, you know.  And one
    day you will look upon someone that has a disability and it will be someone
    that you love.  It may be a parent, a
    child or a grandchild. But whomever it is, you will want that loved one to be
    respected as a person, for who they are, what they have done and what they will
    one day do.  You will fight to be sure
    that they are given the opportunities that they need, the opportunity to be
    happy, to grieve, to be angry and to express their feelings in the way that
    they need to.  And when that day comes, I
    hope that you remember the letter you wrote to Brenda Millson and that you fall
    to you knees with shame and beg for forgiveness.

    Sincerely,

    Richelle
    Maki

    B S, letting one’s kid play outside is as normal as it gets. Everyone lets their kids play outside. No one asked for “extra.” She simply let her kid play outside, LIKE ALL PARENTS DO. Obviously, any neighbor who had a problem didn’t have the balls to come straight out and say so. None of the neighbors had the back-bone to have an adult conversation about it and figure out a solution, if there is one. Instead, they wrote shitty letter and slipped it under the door, like cowards. You should know something about that, as you defend a coward who does not have the fortitude to be straight up.

    The author of this letter is nothing more than miserable. The person is not compassionate, he or she is not tough, just miserable. People like this are not happy, they enjoy inflicting misery on others. Dickens wrote in a Christmas Carol that In God’s eyes Tiny Tim as crippled as he was, had more human value than Scrooge. The Indians considered someone like this boy touched by the Great Spirit. My question to this person is if we were to take your advice where does it end? Does it end in something similar to the Nazi Death Camps or does it end in an open pit with a machine gun. Does it end in something like the Killing Fields in Cambodia? When and where does it stop? I know he or she would say it’s just this child but that how it all begins, and it always ends in horror.

    The point is we don’t know. How about the per car wreck victim that comes in at night and dies because I’m way to tired to save them because I was frigging awake all day listening to a wailing child. It did not say making a little noise it said wailing. This would definitely be a problem if he was out wailing for 7-8 hours a day. An autistic child in the yard wailing is not a normal thing for autistic children. Is it a hundred degrees out side, is he being attacked by wolves or bees? Should the authorities be called. I deal with idiots that abuse these children all the time. Yep yet another busted head broken arm or some other obvious violence towards these unfortunate children who are very prone to be abused.

    No I’m not. What you are referring to is not a hallmark of autism; it occurs but is not a hallmark. Stop trying to be a Internet expert. Did you get this information which you are referring from the DSM IV TR, the Internet, or did you surmise it from a Hollywood representation of the disease? You don’t know what you are talking about. It is estimated that autistic children are more than 2 times as likely to be abused. Since autistic children do not communicate in a normal manner the way they do communicate is through vocal stimming. In a earlier post you were going on about how you could not beleive that the responses were about grammar; now you start talking about my writing style? Wow hypocrit! There are many things this letter writer did not say in the letter. She did not give her name(coward). Wether it was hot, wether it was cold or anything else. There is too much unsaid for any of us to know. I will let you know that vocal stimming which is louder than a normal autistic child’s stimming is a sign of abuse. Many children that wail like this are doing so because they are not receiving attention. Is this individual a foster parent? If she is the rates of abuse are even higher(now she’s an employee taking this child in for money as disabled children garnish more money than so called normal children). You don’t know the situation so just stop. It’s funny that you are defending an individual who may very well be a pedophile. I don’t defend either. I’m just saying be careful who you rush to defend blindly. Neither of the individuals in this are in the right. This mother choose to use social media as an outlet while her child continues to wail for attention(ok put down the mobile device(ridiculous) and give your child some attention. Better yet, begin to take this child to a qualified training facility where they can learn(yes they can) to deal with the issues which often haunt these unfortunate souls. Don’t pretend to know what I feel and don’t btw; you have no f..ing idea.

    The thing I see here is bad neighbors on both sides. First you have a child wailing(maybe this can not be helped in the eyes of the Exasperated mother who obviously needs assistance and guidance from a professional), next you have a neighbor who deals with this in a very passive aggressive and cowardly way, then instead of going door to door holding the letter and knocking on the doors around her and asking did you write this letter? And please let’s talk about this she choose to post it on a social media outlet. I don’t see these neighbors ever coming to grips with each other. They are both passive aggressive. Both have put cowardice on display. The thing is if she deals this poorly with a pathetic letter written by perhaps another Exasperated person than how is she going to deal with real issues like a autistic child? It seems she deals poorly with things herself.

    The parents are the cause? Are you referring to moms who don’t take folate while pregnant? Are you referring to the age of the parent? Are the false claim that abused women are more likely to have an autistic child(actually the reason for this is because abused woman are less likely to see a physician for prenatal care). This is quite a ignorant remark. Good prenatal care has been shown to decrease the incidence of autism by 40%, but to jump to the assertion that the parents are at fault is just total ignorance and you are making a leap to far (kinda like the leap I made when I surmised you knew any of what I typed earlier about your knowledge of the causes(which are unknown) of autism)).

    Even though what this letter writer wrote is terrible. No charges should be pressed. We scream about freedom of speech and expression but then when someone speaks freely we want them locked up? Yes this idiot has the freedom to say what’s on her mind and everyone else has the freedom to shun her and say what they think to her once her identity is clarified.

    Good thought, but it occurs to me if this person was so cowardly to write a letter not sign it and leave for her to read that this person would also be first in line to say it wasn’t them.

    And she only wrote half her name(MOTHER).

    Now your diagnosing without examination? Nice job(another display of ignorance). I don’t think you know chit about either disease. Next you’ll try to diagnose another mental disability that you know nothing about. Ill call you doc Hollywood since you seem able to diagnose based on how Hollywood has misrepresented how certain mental disorders present.

    I see this differently than how I see the 0bama rodeo clown. He wasn’t harming anyone. He wasn’t hating anyone. He was just observing a time-honoured tradition. Apparently it’s common for rodeo clowns to don presidential masks. I think the fallout from that was ridiculous. But, in the other case, the person went so far as to invade the sanctity of someone else’s home by sending them a nasty letter, in which they were calling for the boy to be euthanized. I would feel threatened, if I received a letter like that. No charges have been pressed, so I assume that no laws have been broken; but at the very least, the person should be shamed for being so thoughtless and insensitive.

    It’s easy to be offended when the target of the letter is this poor mom who through no fault of her own has another unfortunate individual in her care. Would it be equally offensive if it were known that the mom was abusive to the child? This loud vocal stimming can be a sign of abuse. So I a agree with you that it’s possible the mother of the autistic child may not be the saint that many on here have tried to make her out to be.

    Wigglypoff, I don’t know what your training is, but you are absolutely an expert on ignorance and trying to make up for it with attacks. If you don’t like what I wrote fine, but I’d put my diagnostic abilities up against yours any day. You’re great at name calling, but so far, all you’ve done is shoot your mouth off.
    No, I’ve never personally examined this woman, but it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that there are serious issues when someone claims to be a “recovered autistic” and also claims to be a doctor and geneticist, yet she doesn’t even know what Munchausen syndrome is, much less Munchausen by proxy, all while supporting a sociopathic letter writer and attacking the victim of said sociopath.
    I’m actually AM a physician and scientist. While I’m not a psychiatrist, I have had training in psychiatry and I AM an expert in molecular biology, a sister field to molecular genetics….you know, the same field to which Amanda claims expertise? What expertise do you bring to the table? Stick to what you’re good at-being a nasty little witch-and let the grownups talk.

    Thanks for demonstrating that you’re as large a jackass as Amanda. “Stimming” is not a definitive sign of abuse of autistic children. Or perhaps you believe like Amanda that the mother caused the autism. As brilliant a deduction as any I’ve ever seen on this site. You don’t like the diagnosis? Then stop trying to make a diagnosis, genius.

    Glenn, I agree with you.  Hold a neighborhood meeting about this.  We have had crotchety people before in neighborhoods who didn’t like kids, or pets.  They poisoned animals, they stick pins and razor blades into candy and apples and other things to hurt people.  We have always had this type of person in our midst.  They are cowardly and murderous.  How do we get them out? 
    This person has to be close by the child.  Find him, her, they and hound them out of the neighborhood.  These type of people need to follow their own advice!

  • roberta4343

    I was thinking the same thing, maybe the mother is not watching her child or she is just so used to his noises that she can’t imagine that the neighbors couldnt tolerate listening to that for hours on end. sad about his autism,but that is no excuse for not showing consideration for others, but I am against the manner of which she stated her frustration, nothing like face to face meetings to deal with something likethis done in a tactful manner. no excuse for constantly barking dogs either. but I love dogs too no anti dog just anti excess noise.

    I have a son with autism – that letter scares me to death. I know there are people out there that feel that way. And that is why we live an isolated life, he is protected under my care. We do
    live in a quiet cul de sac neighborhood. It is why I chose it, because I know how people are. We have had some idiot neighbors, they are gone now, but mostly we have nice neighbors and no one says a thing. I do have a great story about a Christmas card I sent for him from SANTA and the mail man mailed it, it had NO STAMP, he was supposed to leave it, so my son could get it. it had our address.   So I called the post office and tole them he took it – so the lady I spoke with searched her mail ,, and it was a lot because we live in SA on the NRTH West side- huge mail office.. but a few days later she called and said she found it.. So low and behold, the santa letter was back in the box, and my son was able to get the mail and find his letter from Santa.,,,, so you see, not everybody is bad!   That lady should have gotten something for that, only all I did was thank her  profusely and my mail man was  so nice too . Now., today, I feel like I wish I could have bought her a new car or something!

    Violence can only need to violence. Therefore, violence is not the answer to this the author of this letter.

  • BeckonsAttore

    However, perhaps a better understanding on both sides should be made clear. Personally, I disagree that a child with autism should be sheltered as such but I do not know of the severity of the situation.

  • BeckonsAttore

    It is unfortunate, however, that people feel the need to move over such disputes between neighbors but people just do not know how to get along or how to communicate effectively anymore.

  • Janice L Robertson

    OMG who could ever look at a child like this let alone a child that will face incredible challenges already. My God my heart goes out to this mother who decided NOT to hide her child away or be ashamed of him… WOW the hatred in this woman is sure to spill over to her own child and hence a bully is created!!!! So So Sad!!

  • Janice L Robertson

    You got that right. Well put.

    May they discover the person that wrote this hate letter and she/he have to move.
    Don’t they realize the agony the parents as well as the children who are afflicked
    with mental issues have. The person should be grateful its someone else and not
    them or their children. show compassion not evil hatred words and deeds.
    and one commentor is right, so many crimes are committed by so called normal kids.

    It’s always interesting to see THESE KINDS of people hiding behind Anonymity; how brave we are with call block, random notes and the like. If you have something to say-especially like this, Sign your name BITCH. I have had to leave notes before for neighbors or people for one reason or another, and NO matter how vile, ugly or otherwise it was, I NEVER signed it something other than my name. You feel like this, fine; own it; Ignorant, Pathetic, Coward!! Don’t sign your name ‘one pissed mother’ and be sure, PISSED is the least of your problems if that was my child and you left me that note; you wouldn’t have to worry about what I put on the internet, no-no-mama I’d help you with your problem for sure. And I would be the last one moving however, euthanasia was a pretty good advice; (when I was dealing with you [Option Noted] dear). But, that is just MY feelings.
    signed;
    Oh, Mary Arledge by the way.

    Clearly this is a hateful letter; but people also need to understand that their child with a disability can be imposing. I also live in a city in Ontario. I lived in a nice neighbourhood with the same situation. The autistic boy would start this horrible loud high pitched wail, that would start early in the morning to after supper. It would always catch me off guard and I would jump out of my skin! I could hear him from in my house. I could not leave my windows open or enjoy a peaceful time in my yard that I worked hard on. I feel bad for this couple, but really how fair is it on your neighbours?

  • Anonymous

    To the mean anonymous neighbor:
    I think that you’re the one scaring your own children, Don’t blame the child with the disability. Don’t be so stinking selfish and cruel. Be kind and set a good example. It may prevent your children from euthanizing YOU when you become “too much trouble.”

  • Patricia O’Kelley

    I do not agree with most of this letter! But a parent who puts an austic child evidently alone should be charged with neglect and if there are any noise laws in Canada they should be told that they cannot let him be out for long if he constantly hollars. The autustic parents had the right to have him and he is a human being and should not be euthanized, but I do agree the parents should be more responsible with this child and not stick him outside unattended every day which is neglect. The boy could get hurt or hurt someone else.
