    Wow. Is this in Toronto? I haven't watched the video yet. Obviously it's someone closeby, real close, who can hear the boy. I also think it's an adult based on the words used in the letter. I hope he or she is charged.

    I've seen this type of thing before, where a home for special needs youth opened up on my street when I was growing up. One household demanded that they move somewhere else and started calling the residents bad names that I don't want to print on here.

    OK, I'm watching it now and it's a female who wrote the letter, a mother, and is clearly a classless person. She calls her own kids "normal". This occurred in Newcastle, ON, north of Toronto. Wow. I'm so pissed right now. How dare she?

    Ugh!!!! His mother has secondary progressed multiple sclerosis and can't run with him anymore. So sad. His mom is crying in the interview. Poor lady.

    Once it's discovered who wrote the letter, I think she'll lose a lot of friends fast.
    She wrote: No normal girl is going to love him and you won't live forever.
    And to donate his "non-retarded" body parts to science.

    I can't make out the first paragraph. What is their claimed source for the complaint, noise issues? (i.e., why are they complaining in the first place.)

    I think noise is pointed out in the video.

    The sheer number of capitalized words and exclamation points in that letter make me think the author is rather immature and not nearly as smart as she'd like to think she is. Jmo

    I'm overly sensitive to noise, but I have a nice white noise machine. I suppose if there was a child in the neighborhood howling near my home for hours at a time I might get a bit stressed, but her letter seems like an actual criminal act. (Isn't it? Does it constitute a death threat or at least hate speech?)

    I can't even fathom the mentality of someone who would send hate mail to the family of an autistic child. Probably the same type of person who drowns kittens for fun.

    What a coward. If she hates the boy so much why doesn't she reveal herself?

    I think the part about euthanizing him and donating any "non-retarded" body parts to science could be a criminal matter as the woman is blatantly suggesting illegal acts.

    That letter is so over the top it seems almost "hinky". I have to ask who is benefiting from this?

    Wow, just wow!

    I'm thankful I've never experienced that kind of hatred while out in the community with the people I support who have Autism.
    Those poor children of the woman who wrote that letter aren't going to learn compassion, tolerance or acceptance from her. So sad.

    From what I can tell, the grandma lives in a new development in Newmarket, with nice new homes. It should be fairly easy for the neighbours to figure out who wrote the letter. Backyard neighbour or next door IMO. Someone close by.

    You never know, her children might be silently counting the days when they're old enough to get away from their fascist moron of a mother.
