A woman receives a hate-filled letter about her autistic son and shares it with the world. On Aug. 20, FOX News reported that Karla Begley was sent an anonymous letter by way of her son's grandmother (it was sent to her house) that begged the family to "move away" because of their "annoying" son, Max. The letter was so vile and hurtful that it has actually gone viral.
"What right do you have to do this to hard working people!!!!!!!! I HATE people like you who believe, just because you have a special needs kid, you are entitled to special treatment!!! GOD!!!!!! (sic)," read the letter in part.
The woman who received the hate-filled letter couldn't believe what she was reading. The "anonymous" writer suggested that the family "deal" with the child "properly" -- or "euthanize him" and donate his "non retarded body parts to science." Yes, someone actually wrote this.
While the police have said that the letter isn't a crime, they are reportedly working with the family to find out who might have sent it. The Begley's say that they do not feel safe knowing that someone who wrote such mean and hateful things lives near them and is familiar with their son.
The woman received the hate-filled letter is keeping her autistic son Max away from the negativity as best as she can -- even still she says that he's "hamming it up" and enjoying all of the attention. As previously reported, several neighbors have shown the Begley's support following the letter's publicity.
