GDubDub: FTFA: Three-year-old J.J. Hart is an autistic boy who would hardly speak and often threw temper tantrums nearly two years ago.So in other words, he acted like any other kid his age?Can you even reasonably diagnose autism at that age?Not trolling. Really want to know.
joness0154: InitialCommentGuy: So the local government is forced to back down on a valid concern due to a threat of an an expensive, meaningless lawsuit.Truly a vvictoryfor victory for snowflakes everywhere.And what valid concern is there by constituents raising a small amount of chickens in accordance with the law (no roosters, clean pens, fenced, etc.)?
OtherLittleGuy: Did not read the article, but did the dad play the ADA card?
Nation said he threatened to file a federal lawsuit against the city, saying the removal of the boy's chickens would violate the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Federal Fair Housing Act.
orclover: Im assuming its a tactile thing instead of a observational. Rubbing soft chicken feathers might be effective for this kid when a soft blanket or other object had no effect. We use a soft blanket for our older boy, thank god we dont have to take care of a chicken. Although fresh eggs would be nice.....
Pocket Ninja: Yes, they did the rational thing. After the father threatened to sue them in Federal court.That's like being proud of someone for surrendering to the police after six officers draw their weapons on him.
The My Little Pony Killer: Treygreen13: ...therapy chickens?Until they peck the kid's eyes out.
