Wow.
A family is in shock and a community has united after an anonymous hate letter was written about a young boy living with severe autism.

Karla Begley told CityNews her son Max, 13, stays with his grandmother in the morning during the summer time. It was at that home in Newcastle where letter was delivered on Friday.

“I was shaking when I was reading it,” Brenda Millson, Max’s grandmother, told CityNews. “It’s awful words. You don’t know why somebody would ever do such a thing.”

The typed, one-page letter refers to the young boy as a “nuisance” and a “wild animal” before suggesting the family move or “euthanize” the child.

Begley says the police have been contacted and should they have grounds, charges will be filed against the letter’s author.
Hit that link to see the video interview -- as if the image of the letter wasn't bad enough.

I originally found this story at a brilliant Facebook page called Checking Snopes.com Before Forwarding Dumb Emails, who summed it up best by saying, "We were hoping this was false.... but it appears to be true. This is so far over the top.... speechless."

Indeed.
