Years ago when before I bought my home I lived in an apt that was an older building that had thick walls and thick metal doors. I hardly ever heard a peep. The only neighbors I heard were the 7 guys that lived in the efficiancy below me that would blare spanish techno and the autistic kid down the hall that would scream from 8 to 8. The only time it ever bugged me was when I was hungover but I wouldnt send a letter.

You ever notice how a-holes don't ever have the nerve to present themselves, and yet, in the letter [s]/he says they "have to tell you, because nobody else had the nerve."   If you weren't such a p*ssy, you'd discuss it with them in person.

The mom wrote the letter, going for the coveted attention whore/shock value/fame angle.

Indeed.  It's one thing to have asshole thoughts (hey, we all do from time to time), but putting them to a permanent medium, even paper, is a bad idea these days.  We'll know who "one pissed off mother" is by the end of the week, and within 24 hours after that we'll know her home address and telephone number.  After that, she'll be getting ALL THE PIZZAS delivered to her house.

Yeah they told the parents to euthanize the kid - but again, unless I am missing something, letter writer didn't threaten to do any thing.

2013-08-20 01:44:38 PM
I read the letter, and I find it pretty ridiculous. The only thing I'm wondering is, if this had happened in the U.S.A., what the actual crime would be? It says the police are investigating the threat. What threat? I didn't see a threat in the letter. I just saw someone venting her/his frustration at the mother. I'd be perfectly happy with the police finding out who sent it so they can out them for the appropriate public shaming, but I can't imaging any reasonable criminal charges.

Once the person is outed, then the set up comes for criminal charges. Beyond the initial letter, anything else could be possibly classified as harassment. The thing is, at least in this country, we are supposed to respect each others' right to express their opinions no matter how much we may disagree with them. The idea behind that being that there are likely many people who find our own opinions offensive.

thismomentinblackhistory: What kind of sounds is he possibly making?


Been around a few autistic people in my time.  Wife works in special education, and our oldest kid is very high functioning Aspergers.

A lot of the more moderate to severely autistic kids vocalize when they're happy and having fun.  It sounds kind of like a zombie moan, only louder.  It's not what you would naturally associate with happiness, but their brains are so overstimulated, it's the only sound they can render at the time.

Tomass the Second: The mom wrote the letter, going for the coveted attention whore/shock value/fame angle.


Yep.

I notice that she doesn't deny the facts alleged in the letter.  Not saying it wasn't offensive, especially the euthanasia bits, but does that make it untrue as well?  Also, isn't it true that, in certain cultures in the past, persons such as this boy is described as being, would essentially be left out in the wild alone for the gods to deal with.  A recognition of the burden such a person places on the community as a whole, which is also reflected in this letter.  Of course, the perpetrator will be dug up, ostracised, branded for life, refused entry to schools and employment, and unfriended.  If s/he tries to run away, change her/his identity and start anew, the press will expend massive efforts to unmask the fiend.  Quite frankly, a common, everyday rapist will be better treated than this poor miscreant.

It's one thing to have some obvious jerk walk by and yell for me to get my weirdo kid outta here, it's another to see it in a letter with intimations that the child should be dead. See? See where one is a simple jerk's ejaculation, and the other is premeditated harrassment?

Nobody wants to be around your retard babies.

Nobody.

No, the 98% of your neighbors who sympathize don't like you or your kid.  They've had too much Christmas and Family Reunions.  They've learned the Great American Art of Insincerity, of pretending to like things they want to get as far farking away from as they can.

That includes your little genetic fark-up child.

And as soon as you open your mouth and say what they're all thinking, they'll all attack you for being the hero of the group.
 
2013-08-20 01:54:44 PM
Just to play devil's advocate for a minute;  if the child is actively being disruptive, it shouldn't matter that they're disabled.  Having to care for an individual isn't a free pass to allow obviously socially unacceptable behavior or special treatment.  This goes equally for mentally disabled individuals, small children, or to stretch it a bit, co-workers who have kids and want to leave early and take extra vacation days.

So, if the kid was screaming so loudly, so often that it upset an individual to this extent, it's likely that the  mother both knew about it, and did nothing about it, and not just once, but many instances over a period of time.  Like the people who bring their screaming kid to the restaurant or movie theater and then won't leave when asked.

Of course, the writer of the letter appears to be a complete asshole.  Perhaps they're overreacting.  It's one thing to ask someone to take care of a screaming child, it's another to descend to that level.  I still wonder if it'll turn out to be the mother who wrote the letter to herself.

You can be offended all you want.

Writing a poorly constructed letter biatching about it and anonymously leaving it for someone who does not/is not doing what YOU WANT THEM TO DO is what is being brought up here.

That's being a douchebag of the highest degree, and is wholly unnecessary. Especially when what you are biatching about is not anyone's fault.

Other than the part about donating his body to science, it really isn't that bad of a letter. Sounds to me like this mother is just sticking her kid in the yard to yell and holler all day and her neighbor is getting sick of putting up with the noise. The problem is that in this day and age of political correctness we're not allowed to complain about things like this anymore. If it was a normal kid running around raising hell, neighbors would be well within their right to complain about it, but make the kid handicapped and all of a sudden everyone is just supposed to accept the disruption in their lives.

Why can't the parents move someplace further out in the country where the kid wont be disturbing everyone around them? Is it really asking to much for parents of handicapped kids to have some consideration for others?

I'm not sure if it makes me a pessimist to think someone could be so awful as to write such a letter as a scam, or an optimist to think that's more likely than someone else in the neighborhood being such a complete douche as to write that letter to the mother of an autistic child.

But it being a fake letter feels more likely than not.

TOSViolation: I read the letter, and I find it pretty ridiculous. The only thing I'm wondering is, if this had happened in the U.S.A., what the actual crime would be? It says the police are investigating the threat. What threat?


In canada, anything that expresses an opinion about how you don't like some class of people in general is restricted hate speech and liable for criminal damages.

If you say negros are inclined to criminal intent and living near them is just begging to get robbed or have drug dealers selling meth to your children, you'll be hauled into court for hate speech and put in jail.

Just to be fair, if the mother in this case is just putting the kids outside to scream because she is tired of listening to him herself she may be the real asshat here.

The writing seems to be about middle-school level.   It's either a neighbor kid, or an illiterate inbred, (do they have those in Canada?).

On the other hand:

My oldest son was diagnosed as being a high-functioning autistic, so I figured that it wouldn't hurt to go to autism support groups.  I wanted to know how best to handle the different situations that come from having an autistic child.  One of the ladies in the support group had a low-functioning autistic child, and she never told that child "no" about anything.  When he knocked a motorcycle over, and scratched it up, she screamed at the owner of the bike that he wouldn't be such a prick about it if her kid were normal.  Other parents in the support group didn't want anything to do with her, because while we were there to exchange information, she was the "It's all about ME!" attention whore.  Every time there is a local news story involving autistics, this woman still has to have her time in front of the camera, even if it's not directly related to her kid.

I honestly think if she had thought of it, she'd have written herself a letter like that, so she could cry and poor-mouth on television.

Haven't spoken to that nutcase for 10-15 years... THANK GOD!

Given what I know about humans, it is perfectly plausible a neighbor sent the letter. It is equally plausible the family manufactured the letter themselves. Why would they make such a big deal about this? They clearly want the attention.
 
2013-08-20 02:08:20 PM
I can certainly see this coward suing for mental anguish in the very near future.

But if the kid is really that loud then perhaps the family can look into getting some type of device that muffles the sound, like a cool Darth Vader mask, or maybe some superhero?
 
2013-08-20 02:08:21 PM

thismomentinblackhistory: What kind of sounds is he possibly making?


I am not even remotely defending the woman who sent this note, but I know what kinds of noises he makes.  On our last vacation, there was an autistic kid there.  One afternoon of lounging by the pool was ruined.  His dad was in the pool with him, and so they invented some kind of game.  It involved the kid repeating, "Barracuda...barracuda...barracuda..." and then he screamed as loud as he possibly could.  Five times.  Ten times.  A hundred times.  Two hundred times.  It went on for hour after hour.  It was clear that this not an obnoxious brat, this kid was autistic.  No ordinary kid would have done something that many times.  He might have found other ways to be irritating, but he would have grown bored with just one thing.  The kid never spoke another word that I was aware of, either...just "barracuda."

On the same vacation, we went on a whale-watching trip, and there was a young autistic man with is family.  He whistled.  I mean, he whistled incredibly loudly.  The same few notes.  Again and again and again, for hours.  Even at a distance of 30 feet, it made you wince.  Once we were out on the water, we could maintain enough distance, and there was also a fair amount of ambient noise, so that it wasn't as noticeable.  But you could still hear him.
 I also have a profoundly autistic niece.  She can be perfectly peaceful for a long time, and then the slightest thing will set her off, and she emits this piercing howl that sounds like something out of a horror movie.  And that might last a few seconds, or it might last an hour.  And here's the sad part--that's the least of her problems.  (As if that weren't enough, she was at the school in Sandy Hook when the shooting happened.  In fact, she was grabbed out of the hallway by a teacher, or she probably would have been killed.  The killer got to the room next to the one she was in.)


To repeat, I'm not defending this woman (she would have made a great Nazi), but I know how painful it can be to spend time around an autistic person who makes repetitive, loud noises for several consecutive hours.  It's unnerving.

 Autism sucks.

You can be offended all you want.

Writing a poorly constructed letter biatching about it and anonymously leaving it for someone who does not/is not doing what YOU WANT THEM TO DO is what is being brought up here.

That's being a douchebag of the highest degree, and is wholly unnecessary. Especially when what you are biatching about is not anyone's fault.


If you're letting your child scream so much, and so loudly, that it annoys the neighbors, then IT IS YOUR FAULT. Any disabilities the child may have are irrelevant.

But if living in the same area/neighborhood/town/zip code as a member of one group you hate so offends you, perhaps consider what home values and schools are like in areas more suitable to your liking. Hating the retardeds is fine (but not really - have some damned compassion, you assdouche), just keep it to yourself and don't expect those of us born with the barest shred of humanity to accommodate your sociopathy.

This is why the outrage needs to be tempered.  It's always a middle school kid.  Swastikas in the neighborhood?  Gravestones knocked over?  Hateful writings?

Yes, it's bad.  But when you consider the likely source, you shrug it off.

One other thing, some years ago we lived in a neighborhood where the 16 year old two doors down was an out-of-control monster.  He wasn't autistic, just an asshole.  Screaming obscenities and shouting threats.  Constantly in trouble with the police.  The kind of kid you know is going to end up prison for 30 years.  The kind of kid you were afraid to have living that close.  Will he break in with a gun?  Will he set our house on fire?  Or was smashing the rear window of my car enough for him?

I wouldn't enjoy living near a loud autistic kid but I'd take that over the future death row inmate.

but, generally it says, sorry to bring this up, but there's a lot of noise coming from your place between the hours of X and Y, and I've noticed this for Z days/weeks/months.  I normally wouldn't say anything but it's upsetting our baby who can't sleep over the noise.

Dr Dreidel: "Nobody" wants to be around lots of types of people - gays, Republicans, busybodies, salsa-music-lovers, drunk-with-power HOA members, old/bad drivers, politicians, negroes, McMansion-owners, communists, college students, hipsters, creationists, Democrats, crackers, the poor, priests, plumbers, alcoholics, BASE jumpers...


People enjoy base jumping.  They get together, form groups, move off by themselves to go out jumping, collect equipment.  Sometimes they talk about base jumping, sometimes a little much.  So do people with sports cars, computer geeks, and video gamers.

Poor people generally crowd together in poor neighborhoods.  I've seen upper-middle-class neighborhoods; they would not be able to tolerate one of these neighbors.  They talk to anyone, they're friendly--really friendly, not fake-friendly--and they've got short fuses so they get mad and shout and throw punches sometimes.  They're loud at night, sometimes.  It's just how poor people are.  They get along.

Democrats, Republicans, and the Autistic aren't like that.  They just scream a lot in everyone's face.  They don't seem to know what's going on around them, and just continue to run around annoying everyone.  They have no impulse control.  They think they deserve everything.  In the case of democrats and republicans, they get together in groups like other types; but then they're just worse, because they get together in groups to do the one thing their malfunctioning brains are capable of:  planning new ways to irritate the shiat out of everyone else.

Don't try to false-equivalate "People whose social or economic situation differs from mine" with "people who are functionally retarded and miserable to deal with in general unless you're also functionally retarded".  It doesn't work.

Let's drive this home:  Gay people won't just walk up to you and pull their dick out.  Autistic people essentially do just that, in every possible way.  Some of them even do exactly that--in some cases, an inability to express sexual desires or understand common etiquette leads to either yanking their dicks out to show someone they're attracted to or attempt to mate, or pull it out to masturbate, or just to take a piss.  I've worked in retail and had days where mid-20s autistics would piss or shiat in the aisles while shopping with their handlers, so that's actually a real thing.  "UH OHHHH GOTTA TAKE A DOOKIE!!! *shiats right here*"

So nobody likes gay people.  That's because they're gay and people think it's weird.  If they're gay and they're constantly being assholes and acting gay around you and grabbing you and touching you and flirting with you when they've been told to stop, the problem is they're assholes.  There are not-gay assholes too, and gay not-assholes who are gay but can keep it in check.  Straight people are just as bad too--guys around here treat women like shiat universally; I saw one beating his girlfriend in the street and then laugh about it while I was doing yardwork, I offered to let her borrow my shovel... he wasn't amused, she looked like she was seriously considering it.  I should've hit him.  I'll do that next time.  I didn't assess the situation as high threat level and I usually judge low threat as too risky to intervene (makes the situation worse; it's better if you can cool it down than to just escalate it).  Sweet retribution was probably the correct answer, obviated by that it's embarrassing to look back and admit I didn't just flatten this guy's face with the spade.

The threat is implied i.e. I don't agree with you so you should be killed. Get it now?

No, but you've just shown yourself to be an idiot.

You are just too pussified and afraid of the world to think logically. When a person says that something should happen, the ONLY thing they are implying is that they would be pleased if that thing happened. That is it. Nothing else is implied.

The author of the letter may be an asshole, but she definitely did not threaten to kill anyone.

bingethinker: Satan's Bunny Slippers: Hankie Fest: I'm not arguing the douchery of the letter.
But why is being offended the END OF THE FARKING WORLD?  So what?

You can be offended all you want.

Writing a poorly constructed letter biatching about it and anonymously leaving it for someone who does not/is not doing what YOU WANT THEM TO DO is what is being brought up here.

That's being a douchebag of the highest degree, and is wholly unnecessary. Especially when what you are biatching about is not anyone's fault.

If you're letting your child scream so much, and so loudly, that it annoys the neighbors, then IT IS YOUR FAULT. Any disabilities the child may have are irrelevant.


Agreed, however, that is not the tone I take from the letter writer.  If this is not proven to be fake, the person who wrote the letter has some real issues.  I have known a good number of parents/caregivers of autistic kids, and NONE of them would ever dream of just leaving a kid outside all day to scream.  Really, do you think someone would?  I doubt it.  And if *IF* they did, rather than write a letter that screams "I'm a dumbass" to all, wouldn't you contact social services?  This is Canada, not America, where people have access to health care and social services no matter who they are.

So to repeat, I think the letter is fake.  But if it's not, the writer is a douchebag, because parents of autistic kids don't chain them out in the yard and let them scream in most situations.

If it were not delivered anonymously...under a door...you might be right.  But taking into account the totality of the situation, you have harassment charges and more than enough for an order of protection.

And that is good.

Once is not harassment. An ongoing campaign of intimidation or more explicit threat would be different.

I do think the author should be outed for the appropriate public shaming.


In NY State, harassment does not have to be systematic or continual...it can be a once off.  It is furthermore exasperated by circumstances such as doing so based on a disability. Or when delivered anonymously.  Or when using mechanical methods to deliver the intimidating harassment...like a printed letter.

I don't know the local laws in Canada, but in NY State, this would be aggravated harassment.

You are not allowed a Mulligan on this sort of behaviour.  You might not get the book thrown at you, as a first time offender with no history of doing this sort of thing, but it can put you in some hot water.

bluefoxicy: TOSViolation: I read the letter, and I find it pretty ridiculous. The only thing I'm wondering is, if this had happened in the U.S.A., what the actual crime would be? It says the police are investigating the threat. What threat?

In canada, anything that expresses an opinion about how you don't like some class of people in general is restricted hate speech and liable for criminal damages.

If you say negros are inclined to criminal intent and living near them is just begging to get robbed or have drug dealers selling meth to your children, you'll be hauled into court for hate speech and put in jail.


If it makes you feel better, the Crown Attorney's Office has just said that the letter doesn't meet the threshhold for hate speech so that charge will not be considered.

In any case, it should be really easy to troll this jerk out in to the open.  Bring the kid outside and let him go loose with his wailing.  Look for the nearest person that is rolling their eyes and getting annoyed.  There's your letter writing cowardly asshole.

I used to live in a neighborhood with an autistic kid.  Yeah, he made weird noises.  It didn't bother me that much.  I felt for his family, because while they loved him very much, but he was a huge burden, like "I wonder what happens if I dump out all the spices in the cupboard" kind of burden.  They handled that stuff fine, so I figured I could suck it up and take it in stride when he was outside making noises.  Amusingly enough, the most annoying thing he ever did was lock me out of my house.  They had come over to visit, and he went in the house and dutifully locked the door behind him when he came out.  I had to borrow a ladder to break into a second story window.  We had a good laugh and I carried my keys with me the rest of the day.

bluefoxicy: Let's drive this home: Gay people won't just walk up to you and pull their dick out. Autistic people essentially do just that, in every possible way. Some of them even do exactly that--in some cases, an inability to express sexual desires or understand common etiquette leads to either yanking their dicks out to show someone they're attracted to or attempt to mate, or pull it out to masturbate, or just to take a piss. I've worked in retail and had days where mid-20s autistics would piss or shiat in the aisles while shopping with their handlers, so that's actually a real thing. "UH OHHHH GOTTA TAKE A DOOKIE!!! *shiats right here*"


I've worked at psych hospitals, dude. That's a worst-case scenario, or one that involves actual, quantifiable destruction of property - file a claim, sue the other party (or his "handlers", or whoever pays their bills) and move on. If someone's autistic kid is shiatting in your pool even after you've spoken to them, either start locking the fence, cover the pool, or sue the parents.

If someone else's kid does stuff you don't like, talk to their parents. If that doesn't work, there's a club for people who don't like others in their neighborhood. It's called "everyone", and we meet at the bar.

I'd have to live in the neighborhood to know for sure but if some kid was screaming in the street where I live it would piss me off. I'd go out and yell at the kid; of course if the kid is short bus special, I'd talk to the parents. That isn't cool.  But have some class about it.

I have a group home across the street in a residential neighborhood. We didnt know it was there but did hear a ton of weird screams and stuff like that. Not totally obnoxious once you get used to it.

Not to mention the one guy has an obsession with taking out our garbage (and everyone on the street) every Sunday and bringing the can back up. He isn't supposed to leave the porch but meh, no harm no foul. if I could just get him to put the can back in right place...

He used to bring the newspaper up to the door but that didnt last long. I am guessing that the previous owners let him open the door and put it in the doorway. First time he opened the door on me at 6AM was the last time. I scared the crap out of him (like he did to me) and then talked to him and the "caretakers" that I was sorry to scare him but it was unacceptable. He took it ok but leaves the paper in the driveway. Wish he still brought it to the door.

Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake!

There is no way this is a real letter. No one who was angry enough to say these could write like that. Not that it's Shakespeare, but it's cohesive without any glaring spelling or grammatical errors. All the exclamation points are to make it look rushed and frantic, but it's clearly not. Could you remain furious enough to sit down, write the letter, print it out, and deliver it secretly, without cooling off at some point along the way? I couldn't. Also, why is there no cursing? Does the kind of person who'd tell a mother to kill her own child seem like the kind to hold the F bombs?

No, my internet friends. I maintain that the mother read some HuffPo jerk off piece about some special needs kid getting a flood of donations after someone looked at the little lopsided snowflake wrong, and she got an idea.

d23: " I've seen plenty of dimwits here write similar letters."

I agree that some dimwit wrote that letter. I just look at who would be expected to benefit from that sentiment being delivered to that mother, via 'anonymous' letter.

An aggressor has less than zero chance of a positive outcome. You don't raise an autistic child for years and somehow still have thin skin. They're almost certainly not going to _move_ after something so pedestrian as a letter. And having written a letter -- if it *ever* comes back to you, you're a pariah for all time. Even from those who might have agreed with you.

But the benefit to the mother is large. She/they get tons of attention/sympathy and no-one can so much as say 'boo' to them from now on, for pretty much anything, for fear of being suspected as the letter writer.

I mean, maybe a stupid teen wrote that letter. But the concerns and wording of that letter don't read like a teen wrote it.

The big hurdle is that everyone keeps getting all pissy if you don't put air-holes in it for ventilation. Kind of defeats the purpose of sound-proofing.


There's probably a way around this, kinda like a Zoorb except instead of bungies between the inner sphere and outer sphere put in sound absorbing foam.  That would probably work well enough, and hey at that point, you wouldnt even have to LOOK at them.

It is a threat to be taken seriously.  you are a terrible parent if you allow threats of death against your child and do nothing.  When the person moves on to, you know, actual violence and hurts your child, will you feel you acted with due diligence when a verbal threat was received?  how about at your child's funeral? Would regret not having reacted more diligently to the verbal threats at that time?

Calling the police and actively showing whomever dropped the letter (who is no doubt watching) will send a message that you are taking this seriously, and maybe more seriously than they anticipated.

Or you could merely not make waves in order to not appear 'outraged' to show the internet you are cool and stuff.

I had to drop a pretty good client years ago because of her 13 year old autistic kid. She was a hippy lady living in a yard infested with weeds and wanted them all dug out by hand, with no poison used.  I only had to show up a few times to get rid of a few trees, the other time I just paid highschool kids 10 bucks an hour to weed and collected 15 an hour on each of them. I didn't really believe the stories I kept hearing until I stayed the entire day once. As soon as the kid came home from school he'd sit in the yard making bird noises for about an hour, then go to poking and grabbing at the people in the lawn and screeching at them from about 4 inches away. I was able to ignore it until he tried to grab a running chainsaw out of my hands when I was cutting down a small tree. I flipped my shiat and he ran away howling, of course his mother comes out and demands I apologise even after I told her what he did. I demanded my check and told her that we weren't going to be coming back.

I have a severely autistic kid in my neighborhood whose a 9/10 on the Rainman scale.  He likes my dog, asks for him by name, charges into my house a lot to see him.  He generally ignores me the same way he'd ignore a ficus.

His mom shoots the shiat with whoever will listen.  She occasionally ditches her kid to take a phone call, use the bathroom, etc.  She returns 30, 45, 60 minutes later.  The first time it was like, "Okay, everyone needs a break.  I can watch this kid for a while."  He's the type of kid who will inspect Bott's Dots on the highway.

Then I started offloading him onto my kids.  "Hey, junior, come down here.  A kid wants to play with you."  My kid is friends with a few other kids in the neighborhood.  The group took in this autistic kid as one of their own, keeping him out of the street and making sure he didn't wander too far.  Then his mom started disappearing for hours at a time.  The neighborhood kids realized they were babysitting for free while being leashed away from their xboxes.  So they quit the job.

That was last summer.   I haven't seen the autistic kid since.

Point being, fake or not (and it's definitely fake), this letter hits on a truth.  Not many people are going to care about these kids after the parents are dead.  There are always exceptions like Chris Burke or that kid from Willow.  Otherwise, autism really sucks.

So someone anonymously puts a note under your door and says your child being dead would make everyone better off would raise no concern in you at all?

You have no children, obviously.

Run that course of action by your wife/the mother of the child, and see how far it goes.

Wrong, I have children.    Finding out that assholes are out there is not a revelation.


It is a threat to be taken seriously.  you are a terrible parent if you allow threats of death against your child and do nothing.  When the person moves on to, you know, actual violence and hurts your child, will you feel you acted with due diligence when a verbal threat was received?  how about at your child's funeral? Would regret not having reacted more diligently to the verbal threats at that time?

Calling the police and actively showing whomever dropped the letter (who is no doubt watching) will send a message that you are taking this seriously, and maybe more seriously than they anticipated.

Or you could merely not make waves in order to not appear 'outraged' to show the internet you are cool and stuff


I saw no obvious threat in the letter.  I saw an douche saying the neighborhood is better without him, but not "I will kill your child".  Insults do not equal threats.

And maybe I'm an ass, but I'm still thinking this mom is like an ass who just leaves their dogs outside barking all night and does nothing about it.  Even special kids need supervision.

RaceBoatDriver: I have a severely autistic kid in my neighborhood whose a 9/10 on the Rainman scale.  He likes my dog, asks for him by name, charges into my house a lot to see him.  He generally ignores me the same way he'd ignore a ficus.

His mom shoots the shiat with whoever will listen.  She occasionally ditches her kid to take a phone call, use the bathroom, etc.  She returns 30, 45, 60 minutes later.  The first time it was like, "Okay, everyone needs a break.  I can watch this kid for a while."  He's the type of kid who will inspect Bott's Dots on the highway.

Then I started offloading him onto my kids.  "Hey, junior, come down here.  A kid wants to play with you."  My kid is friends with a few other kids in the neighborhood.  The group took in this autistic kid as one of their own, keeping him out of the street and making sure he didn't wander too far.  Then his mom started disappearing for hours at a time.  The neighborhood kids realized they were babysitting for free while being leashed away from their xboxes.  So they quit the job.

That was last summer.   I haven't seen the autistic kid since.

/another csb

Point being, fake or not (and it's definitely fake), this letter hits on a truth.  Not many people are going to care about these kids after the parents are dead.  There are always exceptions like Chris Burke or that kid from Willow.  Otherwise, autism really sucks.

Just implied threats with the 'move or kill him, your choice - we will all  be better off either way' (summarizing)?

Again, it's your kid's funeral or hospitalization when you take no action against threats implied or otherwise.  But hey, you can always tell your children in the hospital (or through prayer when they are dead) that you didn't overeact to that first verbal threat, after all, it was implicitly stated, not expressly stated.

Some kids are really really really retarded, we have a kid around the corner from us who is 12-14, bound in a wheelchair and will howl whenever he is taken for walks.  What the fark is that parent supposed to do?  I have sympathy and respect for her as she deals with that.  I also count my blessings that i am not in that position.  Some people, like you, compare them to barking dogs.

Dr Dreidel: / and again, if YOU have a problem, YOU'RE the one who needs to find a solution - strap on your big-boy dildo and find a new place to live, Frances


this is everyone's solution.

It cost me like $6000 to buy a house.  I needed that cash on hand.  $50,000 and I made the seller pay closing.

To move to a non-ghetto would cost me around $15k-$35k.  Not just talking the house payment; I need enough to buy some sort of vehicle in cash to move.

To rent an apartment requires putting down for a security deposit and moving costs.  Breaking your lease can get expensive--breaking mine was a non-option, I was going to have to find new tenants but 4 years I got out easy enough.  The new apartment will probably be both smaller and more expensive.  In any case there would have been a transition period of moving into the new place, costing an extra month of rent.  The whole thing to move while renting might cost a couple grand.

You know it's expensive to move?

Oh, but put on your big-boy panties and plop down a couple grand.  A little more than it costs to buy a sniper rifle, or to get the right poisons to poison off the annoying screaming wart across the street.

All these people talking about "Just go and move" have obviously never just gone and moved.  Either live with their parents or still living in the same first apartment they've rented.  Try moving several times.

DubtodaIll: Keeve: Usurper4: Keeve: DubtodaIll: This doesn't come close to the a-hole threshold.  Stress is a biatch and makes you do biatchy things.  Put the kid in a soundproof kid-sized hamster ball and be done with it.

What an a$$hole thing to say. As a parent of two children I will have you know that after reading "Put the kid in a soundproof kid-sized hamster ball", I have spent the last 2 hours scouring the internet in search of soundproof kid-sized hamster balls. They don't make them. I couldn't even find anywhere to have one custom made. I found something very similar that is inflatable, but does not offer soundproofing. Not good enough. Thanks for getting my hopes up jerk!

Am I the only one who thinks we need to get a Kickstarter going?

The big hurdle is that everyone keeps getting all pissy if you don't put air-holes in it for ventilation. Kind of defeats the purpose of sound-proofing.

There's probably a way around this, kinda like a Zoorb except instead of bungies between the inner sphere and outer sphere put in sound absorbing foam.  That would probably work well enough, and hey at that point, you wouldnt even have to LOOK at them.


With that one entry hole, while your kid was running around it would sound like, "Blah blah blahblahblahblah  blah  blahblahblah  blah  blah  blah blahblah". Kind of an annoying audio pulsar.

metallion: The writing seems to be about middle-school level.   It's either a neighbor kid, or an illiterate inbred, (do they have those in Canada?).

On the other hand:

My oldest son was diagnosed as being a high-functioning autistic, so I figured that it wouldn't hurt to go to autism support groups.  I wanted to know how best to handle the different situations that come from having an autistic child.  One of the ladies in the support group had a low-functioning autistic child, and she never told that child "no" about anything.  When he knocked a motorcycle over, and scratched it up, she screamed at the owner of the bike that he wouldn't be such a prick about it if her kid were normal.  Other parents in the support group didn't want anything to do with her, because while we were there to exchange information, she was the "It's all about ME!" attention whore.  Every time there is a local news story involving autistics, this woman still has to have her time in front of the camera, even if it's not directly related to her kid.

I honestly think if she had thought of it, she'd have written herself a letter like that, so she could cry and poor-mouth on television.

Haven't spoken to that nutcase for 10-15 years... THANK GOD!



When my son was diagnosed I did the same thing. What a bunch of self pitying nutcases. It's a circle jerk of people proudly describing their childs symptoms. "Little Maxwell, is non verbal and has a yeast count that the doctor says is the highest they have ever seen" "Well, MY Sally has the worst tantrums her consultant has experienced" One mother even said, this was her "Oprah moment." Oh Shut The Hell Up! Then you get the parents that think that whatever they have done or used should be adhered to by everyone. I was actually called abusive for using a form of ABA therapy.

Or, as you mentioned the child has absolutely NO boundaries or discipline (I blame some of this on educators and consultants). I was actually asked by his aide in school how we should approach a situation where he is agressive. I said say NO! just like we do at home. He has no right to lay his hands on anyone and if he doesn't learn now, think of what we're going to do when he's 6'3" and 200 lbs.I've taught both my boys that I and the people around love them but regardless of what problems they have no one else is expected to give a fark.

As for the writer of the letter, get over yourself it's the suburbs, children are noisy. I'm sure her little sparkle ponies never utter a peep. In neighbourhoods it's give and take. I put up with your yappy kick me dogs and you put up with my loud kids, and we both put up with the guy who plays loud techno music. If you can't figure that out you need to move.

Hankie Fest: I'm not arguing the douchery of the letter.
But why is being offended the END OF THE FARKING WORLD?  So what?


I think it's a bit threatening, the part about how the kids should be euthanized for parts and how this b* is pissed off at the kid enough to write a letter and stick it under the door. I'm guessing it's a form of harassment as well.

First amendment rights (also this was in Canada) don't apply if you target a specific person in your rant.

So anyway ... the person is in the neighborhood, living fairly close. Is a mother of more than one child (since she mentions children) and since this outrage, you can bet her garbage can has a stack of unused pink paper in it).

Given that criteria (mother of more than one kid, liviing close enough to be annoyed). I'm guessing it won't be long before we see her pictures and she gives a fake apology on TV.


Also, this is a good reason to get a surveillance cameras mounted.

CItation needed.

I am pretty sure you can rant against specific individuals.  Are you trying to describe a First Amendment exception for threats?  A rant is not necessarily a threat.  IIRC, the threat would need to be specific and credible to be prohibitable language.  Or, are you referring to the Canadian Constitution?

Well, it obviously bothers them and it may be excessive, but they surely didn't have to be such an inhuman asshole about it.  If the noise is honestly too much they could have spoken with the parents or even the police.  This was the action of a massive dick and leaves me with absolutely no sympathy whatsoever.  The kid might be a blight on their life, but the author of that letter is a blight on the human race.

So then your problem is somewhere between "interrupts my otherwise idyllic day" and "annoying enough to make the 6 grand to move worth spending". Your problem is worth somewhere between $0 and $6,000. Go open a Kickstarter to help you move if you don't have it.

Again, if you're the one who has a problem with the situation, you're the one who needs to fix it. Why on Earth would you expect someone else to help? Maybe if you ask nice, mom'll have you over (sans kid) for dinner once a week/month, or she'll get dad (or whatever slam-piece) to build you a soundproof treehouse or something.

I'm really curious which part(s) of the letter constitute a threat?  Is it the name calling?  Is it the request that the family move?  Is it the suggestion that the parents should have euthanized their child?

Is it a disgusting and immature expression of someone's anger?  Absolutely.  Should the author be ashamed of herself?  Yes, ma'am.  Are the centipedes in her vagina acting up?  Certainly.  Would fark filter out the colorful language that cuh hunt deserves to be called?  Si, si.

Was this a criminal act?  Possibly, but I don't see how one letter, offensive as it is, could be considered illegal.  More importantly, where is the threat?  It really sounds like an unconstitutional and emotional revenge witch hunt.  Period.

ReapTheChaos: Other than the part about donating his body to science, it really isn't that bad of a letter. Sounds to me like this mother is just sticking her kid in the yard to yell and holler all day and her neighbor is getting sick of putting up with the noise. The problem is that in this day and age of political correctness we're not allowed to complain about things like this anymore. If it was a normal kid running around raising hell, neighbors would be well within their right to complain about it, but make the kid handicapped and all of a sudden everyone is just supposed to accept the disruption in their lives.

Why can't the parents move someplace further out in the country where the kid wont be disturbing everyone around them? Is it really asking to much for parents of handicapped kids to have some consideration for others?

Cymbal: He might have found other ways to be irritating, but he would have grown bored with just one thing. The kid never spoke another word that I was aware of, either...just "barracuda."

Yes how dare she say what we're allI'm thinking.


FTFY, pronouns are as for your apparent perspective. There are lines even most Farkers won't cross.

Tons of comments from farkers wanting someone to burn for this, thinking someone would really send this annonymous letter lol.

shiat is fake as shiat. She at least could have set her own house on fire and ran naked to her neighbors.

Isn't this the thread where all of the Fark kid haters get together and circle jerk each other over this brilliant troll?

Go to hell, all of you.

That's a penalty for improper use of punctuation. Half the distance to the goal, repeat first down.

Stikman72: vrax: Stikman72: I don't care what anyone says... this is a fake letter

Hmm.  Paper.  Words on it.  Looks like a real letter to me.

I'd suggest you look at the pixels, that's how you can tell


On this point I will defer, as you've probably seen a few more shops in your time than I have.

I got bored last night and hunted up some more articles. Some factoids for those who don't like the TL;DR:

- This kid gets out/escapes too, running rampant around the neighborhood.
- The letter was delivered to his grandmother's house, where he's been spending at least the mornings all summer long (in a new neighborhood).


Here's some linky goodness:
http://www.citynews.ca/2013/08/18/family-in-shock-after-hate-letter- ta rgets-teen-with-autism/  - the video makes me think this is fake, and if it isn't, that is the most ridiculous blatant plead for sympathy ever.

http://www.theprovince.com/news/just+sick+Family+autistic+asked+leav e+ Ontario+community+have/8808672/story.html  - They've had minor issues in the neighborhood before: The only hostility the family had sensed in the Newcastle neighbourhood was four years ago, she said. At the time, Max loved to throw a ball in the backyard and as he often threw it over fences, Millard had written her name and address on it, Begley said. One day it arrived in the yard tattered, she said. "They took the time to shred the ball with scissors and throw it back over." Begley added the family did not know what yard the ball was thrown into.

http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2013/08/19/hateful_letter_about_auti st ic_boy_sent_to_newcastle_grandmother.html  - Now this quote from the mother makes me want to stab: "If they don't like different people, they should move away and be a hermit, because life is full of unexpected stuff, and that's what makes it interesting," she says. "That's what I say to my husband every day."

No lady - while I DO plan to move somewhere with a lot of space and become more hermit-like, your broken sprog is not what makes life interesting. Letter writer was a bit tactless and over the top, but I can understand being driven to that level of rage (just not that much excessive punctuation).


Imagine you're crazy letter writing lady. Things were okay in the neighborhood....until that bright summer morning, when the screaming started. The nice elderly lady down the street appears to have some sort of defective running around in her backyard, screaming! "So much for the baby's nap today!" She mutters furiously, with a vain hope the miscreant will be gone soon.

Alas, it's not to be so. While it goes home late in the afternoon, every morning, the quiet is shattered by this screaming thing in her neighbor's backyard. Every single blasted day this summer - it gets locked outside in the fenced backyard and screams nearly constantly. The baby can't sleep, and the older children don't want to go outside. It was hard enough to pry them away from the game system as it is, now they don't want to be out at all, not after the day it figured out the gate latch and came charging down their driveway, waving his arms and screaming even louder than normal. "POTATOOOOOOOO!" it shrieked joyfully, before running down little four-year-old Billy and his green plastic soldiers. Mercifully, the grandmother came out quickly and subdued him with a net and some Thorazine, but she screamed at Billy to "Watch where you're going! He's SPECIAL!" before hauling him away and back behind the gate, holding it closed with a cinder block.

Every day it continued, unrelenting. She tried music, alcohol, even some of those awesome pot brownies from the neighbor boy - nothing worked to drown that little farker out. Finally, after two and a half months of auditory hell and downing a fifth of vodak, she sat down at the laptop and poured her heart out. "Maybe this will make my message loud and clear" she thought with a burst of half shame, half vindictive rage, as she loaded that hideous bright pink paper her aunt Violet thought she'd be able to find a use for into the printer. It took a few tries to get up the nerve to march over to the mailbox and fiddle around before tucking it into the hateful neighbor lady's mailbox, but she finally got it in there before hurrying back to her home, hoping feverishly that no one had seen her.

"It's not like I could've said something to her directly." She thought, rationalizing later, desperately hoping she wouldn't be found out. "What would I say? Ma'am, can you please get a bark collar or some duct tape?" She knew she's be an instant pariah if her secret was discovered. "How could you be so meeeean he's just a child he can't help it!" "He's special, you monster!" She could just hear the responses, especially from the grandmother. She rocked the baby faster, hoping maybe she'd sleep today, with all the windows and doors closed despite the stifling August heat.....


In all seriousness though, what exactly are the neighbors supposed to do, in either neighborhood? If this kid is really as loud as he sounds, then no one should be forced to listen to that, as the neighbors have rights too. It's not even like they could move - can you imagine an open house with that little monster screaming his fool head off? It sounds like instead of writing the fail letter (assuming it's not from the family itself), she should've called the Canadian version of CPS. The kid screams his fool head off all the time and escapes to likely one day cause harm to himself or others? "Oh look shiny fast potato!" *THUD*. It sounds like he should be in a group home or institutionalized. If the family really wants him around that bad, then great, bring little Max out to the farm.

/ my headline was "If your kid counts to potato outside my fence one more time I'm having him euthanized!"
//Fark this kid and his family if he's even half as loud and obnoxious as he sounds

Have the police look into the yelling.  It's an honest noise complaint.  No reason to be a complete dick about it.

Cold_Sassy: You ever notice how a-holes don't ever have the nerve to present themselves, and yet, in the letter [s]/he says they "have to tell you, because nobody else had the nerve."   If you weren't such a p*ssy, you'd discuss it with them in person.


False consensus effect.  Basically, if you ever find yourself saying, "I'm only saying what everybody else is thinking, because I'm the only one brave enough to say it," stop a moment and seriously consider that (A) you are indeed an a-hole, and (B) most of the people who you think silently agree with you, don't.

Chach: Should be interesting seeing the Farkers who are head over heels in love with abortion try to keep a straight face while talking about how this imperfect human being is entitled to his dignity.


I wouldn't say I was "in love with" abortion, but sure, you make me like it an awful lot.

EmperorSled: brantgoose: There is no a-hole threshold.

There's only the singularity. Haven't you people read any Stephen Hawkins on the theory of a-holes? The only question is whether the singularity is a mathematical point or a sort of curve like the tip of a crayon or a dull pencil.

For whatever reason I read that as 'dull penis'. It still worked until I tried to figure out what a non-dull penis would look like and then I started to get sick.


Don't do an image search on "traumatic insemination," then.  Don't click on the link, either.

Dr Dreidel: Again, if you're the one who has a problem with the situation, you're the one who needs to fix it. Why on Earth would you expect someone else to help? Maybe if you ask nice, mom'll have you over (sans kid) for dinner once a week/month, or she'll get dad (or whatever slam-piece) to build you a soundproof treehouse or something.


Great, so if I come over and piss in your face, and you're the one with a problem with the situation, you're the one that's going to have to fix it.  It's not like you could call the police because I keep kicking your door in every couple days, throwing a chair at you, and then pissing on your face.  No, not their problem; your problem, your responsibility.  Shut up, build a bring, and get the fark over it so the rest of us can piss in your face in peace you human scum.
