bluefoxicy: 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.

Oh Noes! PLEEEEASE don't ignore me! I couldn't live with myself if I was no longer able to communicate with the most important person in my life!

I think I'm going to kill myself after work. I hope you are happy.

If the kid really goes out and wails all day, I can see him being a nuisance. Maybe polite intervention didn't work, and now they're just trying to drive the family out of the neighborhood. Can't say I blame them. Who wants to hear a rtard screaming all day?

asmodeus224: TOSViolation: CruJones: What I would have done:  Received letter, gotten upset, thrown letter away.  Hugged child.  Then make sure that my child is behaving acceptably, then go on with my life.  No calling the news, or the cops.

Amen.

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.


What a patronizing and sexist thing to say. Because wives/mothers are all emotion and hysterics, right? No way they might be able to think about anything logically or objectively, especially with all that kitchen work still needing finished, RIGHT??? I speak for the whole of womanhood when I say that you should be EUTHANIZED and DIE!!! No WOMAN will ever LOVE you because there are no NON-RETARDED parts on you, including your stupid HEAD!

HOLD ON, THERE IS SOME RETARDED KID ACROSS THE STREET MAKING A LOT OF NOISE.......

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?

I feel for the person...
who wrote the letter.

Putting up with all the freaky noises and having to walk on eggshells not to offend despite not getting any consideration that I don't make a lot of bothersome noise because I actually give shiat about the neighbors (inhaling) which obviously you don't because of the freakin' noise from that child you think is above everyone else and can get away with noise and whatever that normal people (inhaling) have to be responsible for.

Ya know?

2013-08-20 06:48:16 PM  
operating under the assumption that the majority of the article is true,
if this mom (or whatever) is letting a 13 year old maniac run around the neighborhood wailing like a banshee, and god only knows what else, and scaring, and god only know what else, the local children, I have absolutely zero sympathy. it's not like the little cretin is going to read it.
I can see in that scenario his actions, and his guardians actions are a form of intimidation and harassment to the whole community.

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.

Um.  No one "wants" to hear it.  That is kind of the point.  If the kid had a volume control, they would have used it by now.

2013-08-20 07:55:58 PM  

bluefoxicy: 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.


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.

Being passive aggressive and threatening is the worst way to do anything about it.

d23: Keeve: 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.

Look harder.  That has GOT to be a fetish...


They are inflatable:
 
2013-08-20 08:01:05 PM  
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.

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

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.

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.
