Yes how dare she say what we're all thinking.

"Oh ... that's so *twitch* sad, your child shiats himself (why is he looking at me?) all the time and (STOP TOUCHING ME!) (oh god don't try to pet my dog) has no idea what's happening around him (or how farking irritating he is all the god damn time)."

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.

But, I've grown so jaded by the modern "everybody look at me, my child has ADD/autism/Asperger's/etc, now pay attention to me!" parent, that there's always wonder...did the mother write it herself just to get attention?

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.

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

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.

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.


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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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'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.

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.

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.

Kibbler: 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.


Indeed.

Does anyone know if it is technically possible to physically altar someone's vocal chords in order to lower the maximum decibel they can achieve with their voice? Seems that would be a fantastic solution to this problem.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


Hey, kiddo. Stop going on your mommy or daddy's Fark handle. You are too young and too immature to be on here without parental supervision.

This was in Canada.  So if you meant the US part of America, you're off.  If you meant all of the Americas... yeah, I doubt you meant that.

The police are investigating this "threat." Where is the threat? Nothing more than some insensitive obnoxious loud mouth sounding off. I fail to see any where in the letter where a threatening action was impending. 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.

Really, am I missing something here?

Contrabulous Flabtraption: What did they do with autistic kids in the 1950s? Whatever it was, we should return to doing that.


No.  Not unless you're into eugenics.

Chained them to rape beds in asylums and when their holes were worn out, they would die of "pneumonia"

What did you think happened?

Well, that letter escalated quickly.

wxboy: Odds on this actually being the work of an adult? And on purple paper? I'm going with teenage girl.


This.

Slaves2Darkness: Meh, pink paper, badly written, this looks fake. I'm betting the mother sent it to herself to get attention and/or donations.


Ooh... maybe that.

That is what I thought too.  Particularly when the letter says she should donate the kid's non-retarded bits to science.

groppet: 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.


What a nice doormat you are say, you don't mind if I wipe my feet on you.
