Don't know if you saw this story in the news earlier in the week, but I've been to busy to post this before.
Apparently the grandmother of Max, a 13-year-old boy with autism, received an anonymous letter at her home in Newcastle, Ontario, Canada. The letter, signed by "One pissed off mother," refers to Max as a neighborhood "nuisance," "retarded," and a "dreadful" noise polluter.
But worse than that, the letter says, "Personally, they should take whatever non retarded [sic] body parts he possesses and donate it to science. What the hell else good is he to anyone!!! Do the right thing and move or euthanize him!! Either way we are ALL better off!!!"
See for yourself:
There are no words for someone like this. If the author of this letter is actually a parent, I fear for this person's children. Canadian police are investigating.
Sometimes people just baffle me.
