An autistic boy received a hate letter from someone in his grandmother's neighborhood in Ontario, Canada suggesting he be euthanized because he's a "nuisance." On Aug. 20, My Fox 8 reported that the hateful letter was delivered to Max Begley's grandmother's house where he spend 3 or 4 days each week because of his parents' schedules. The letter was "anonymous" and extremely painful to read.
"You selfishly put your kid outside everyday and let him be nothing but a nuisance and a problem to everyone else with that noise polluting whaling that he constantly makes. That noise he makes when he is outside is DREADFUL! Its scares the hell out of my normal children (sic)," read the letter in part -- and that wasn't even the worst of it.
The autistic boy hate letter also suggested that Max be "euthanized" and that his "non retarded body parts be donated to science." The letter was signed "one pissed off mother" and the Begley's decided to share it with the world and even have said that they are "scared" that there is someone out there who feels this way about a child with special needs.
The hateful letter is making news around the country today and people simply cannot believe that someone would send such a hurtful letter to another family. While police have been notified and have said that writing such a letter isn't a crime, the Begley's are still on edge. They have said, however, that several of their neighbors have shown their support during this time.
