FTA: Apparently, Jasper said, the boy likes to wander away and he likes to climb.

This will not end well.

Surprised the parents aren't suing the mall for "scaring" their precious little snowflake.

A spotter for the ride saw the boy and immediately sent a message to security and park managers, Jasper said.

Way to earn that paycheck, son.

Go to your local grocer and get some S.P.L.A.T. today.

/S.P.L.A.T. is just another name for hot dogs, bologna, SPAM and any other amalgamated food.

My wife works with Autistic kids daily. She has one kid that can name the corresponding day of the week if you give him any date past or present.

As the father of an autistic son who was just at Mall of America on Friday, I was worried that this article was about my kid and my wife decided not to tell me just how bad he was acting out.

My five-year-old godson is autistic, so I'm really getting a kick out of the fact that the one in TFA isn't him. I could see something like that happening, though. Autistic kids are the best and worst of both worlds -they're smart enough to work almost any locking device known to man, yet out-of-it enough to think cars and garbage trucks want to play.

/they make kid-harnesses and leashes for a reason
//our little space-kid loves his, puts it on even over his pjs
///we're going to have to order upgrades from an S&M company if he grows much more
////hey, bulk discount!

As someone who works with autistic preschoolers, I will say this statement is 100% true.

Odd juxtaposition of posts...this one's begging for an Arnie reference (which jeisenPSD got) and what did Arnie do? Climb a water tower. What's the next fark post? About a water tower...

Yeah, 6.03746. Not 6.03745. 6.03746. Margin of error is very small. Definitely very small.

Always remember: KEEP YOUR RETARDS ON A LEASH AT ALL TIMES!!!

Its a violation of the public health code to let them roam free.

One incident in 26 years? Yeah, must be the fence's fault.

Your definition of "fun" is different from mine. Then again, you're big enough to fend off the attacks.

Well time for some "math"...

"Child that does not listen" + "impulsively seeks out danger" + "no self-restraint" + "quite a dipshiat" = a tragic failure in preventing this walking self-destrucive genetic-failure from continuing to be a painful burden on his family and later the entire community that will suffer his presence and survival.

// Sometimes we need to let Mother Nature take the failures out early and clearly to prevent even greater horrors later.

A higher fence? A HIGHER FENCE? Because suddenly an extra 2 feet will make you not able to climb it? It could be a 20 foot fence, and if you can get off the ground at all, you can climb it all the way. Unless you put something nasty at the top.

Like a Pterodactyl.

/Sorry - drugs must have just kicked in.
