Ontario police investigating
hateful letter telling family
to ‘euthanize’ autistic child

Yahoo! News [Canada], by Matthew Coutts

Ontario police are aware of a disgusting letter sent to a woman caring for an autistic child by another woman who wanted the "wild animal kid" out of her neighbourhood, even if it meant killing the child. The hateful letter was reportedly sent last week to a resident of Newcastle, Ont., just east of Toronto, who hosts her 13-year-old grandson, Max, during summer days. Mother Karley Begley spoke with CityNews and broke down in tears as she tried to read the letter. The letter was re-posted on Twitter by Lennon and Maisy, a young Ontario singing duo who also star

This is causing lots of FB and Twitter chatter. I have no doubt this hateful person will be identified ...

I saw this last night. Unspeakably vile. The letter writer is far more mentally unhinged as a "normal" person than what she accuses an autistic child as being.

#1, agree. The letter writer is the person with the defect. That they would tell a parent to euthanize their autistic child because the child offends them...the writer has no moral compass.

While the letter is certainlky mean, nasty, and despicable, I have serious problems with the police tracking the author down and having them lynched in the media over it if there is no evidence that the author will cause any harm to the child. People can be nasty and have nasty opinions. It´s not national or international news, nor should it expose people to an international lynching for being nasty and insensitive. I´m fine with the neighbors dealing with it by shunning he author and so on, not the entire Internet demanding their head on a pike.

I agree the letter is vile and ignorant but did it break the law? I don´t believe there were any specific threats.

i mean if we are going to arrest people for being stupid there wouldn´t be any liberals left, wait hmmmm.

Who says the writer is going to be arrested? Although I wouldn´t be that confident that he or she didn´t break the law. It seems that it´s practically impossible to lead even a blameless life without breaking SOME law in some way, so don´t be so very certain that a cagey way with words is enough to keep this person out of trouble. And the job of the police is not solely to arrest criminals; if this person is as demented as the letter indicates, "investigating" is just what I think a responsible police force should do, to make sure this isn´t someone who also puts out rat poison because the neighbor´s dogs bark too much and the cats keep coming into their yard. This much venom and hatred, actually committed to paper and hand-delivered, is not something we should just shrug and figure is part of the great, rich tapestry of modern life, to be accepted as ordinary.

I have 2 autistic sons; if I got a letter like this, I´d feel VERY threatened, by someone nearby who´s observed my children intently and expressed a wish to see them come to harm. Of course I´d call the police, and I´d be outraged if they just shrugged it off and told me to forget it. I might just start investigating on my own, and you can see where the trouble in THAT could lie. I don´t see what other course of action the police could take.

This is the kind of vile thinking you get when you deem certain types of people (first, the unborn, then the less than perfect.) ´inconvenient´ and therefore not worthy of life.

This IS vile. And so is euthanasia of any kind.

Do you also agree that people should be silenced by the police for expressing anti-homosexual opinions because gays and lesbians, who do have a legitimate history of being abused and killed for being gay and lesbian, feel threatened by such comments? Do you approve of gay rights group using lists of donors to anti-gay marriage political groups to shame and persecute the people making such donations? How about Muslims who feel threatened by nasty comments critical of Islam?

Nobody likes to be the target of nasty comments, but that doesn´t warrant police action or an international Internet lynching any more than the wailing of the autistic making life uncomfortable for the letter writer warranted their call for euthanasia or other nastiness. Just because you don´t like what someone else says doesn´t make a jihad against them justified. Given all the politically correct crusades against conservatives for saying something a liberal thought was mean or threatening and all the rioting of Muslims over perceived slights of their religion, I expect conservatives to recognize the danger of criminalizing and persecuting nasty comments on the grounds that it might be a sign that the person will do something violent.

Sounds like something penned by Bill Maher or Andrew Sullivan. They´ve both basically said the same thing about Trigg Palin, but in those cases, the MSM just applauded them for their, umm, frankness.

And if you trust the police to "just investigate", ask the guy who made the anti-Mohammed film that Obama blamed Benghazi on how that worked out for him and take a look at what´s happened to comedians in Canada (where this took place) who made disparaging comments to some lesbian hecklers or to Mark Steyn for comments critical of Islam. Once the lynch mob gets rolling, it rarely stops without someone getting locked up or worse. What exactly would you like to see happen to this neighbor?

So the police should be able to find something that they can persecute this person over, just like the guy who made the anti-Muhammed film, right? No, no threats to free speech and liberty here. Trust the police. The police are your friend. Only bad people get persecuted and locked away.

#10, There is a world of difference between ´nasty comments´ and a personal letter, filled with vicious and malicious statements directed specifically at a member of one´s family - particularly a child.

T]hey should take whatever non retarded body parts he possesses and donate it to science. What the hell else good is he to anyone!!!!


Do the right thing and move or euthanize him!!! Either way, we are ALL better off!!!

While that may not rise to the level of a criminal threat, I would consider it an indication of a potentially dangerous level of anger. #1 is absolutely correct. This is not something a normal person would do. If I were on the receiving end of this letter, I would be afraid for my child.

What should happen to this neighbor is she should at least be identified, so that other neighbors have the opportunity of knowing who they are - or aren´t - associating with. Then let the neighborhood decide who is the undesirable nuisance. Perhaps the author of the letter would find it preferable to live in a trailer in the woods herself.

"What exactly would you like to see happen to this neighbor? "

I would like to see a sign posted on their front lawn, reading, "Poison Pen Letter Writer Lives Here. Supports the killing of inferior humans" Public shunning is the correct response, but we can´t shun someone unless we know who they are. Freedom of speech doesn´t mean freedom to lie, and Poison Pen is lying - she´s hiding behind her anonymity, pretending she´s like all the respectable people around her who DIDN´T write that disgusting letter. I´m not concerned with making life easy and comfortable for liars. She can have her opinion, and the public scorn that goes with it. Hunt her down and expose her.

While the horror show involving Brendan Eich, Proposition 8, and Mozilla was reaching its ignominious crescendo, I was in Milan, Italy, speaking before an energized crowd of activists in the Lombardy region’s county hall. Unaware of the witch hunt carried out by McCarthy’s rainbow-brandishing gay great-grandsons in Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man came forward and cried out in Italian, “Is it just me, or is the gay lobby imposing a dictatorship on us with their so-called scientific experts?” The science to which he referred wasn’t JavaScript, but rather psychology and pediatrics.

The city’s Office of Emergency Management tweeted that people in Staten Island and Brooklyn might smell smoke from a forest fire burning along 30 acres of land in Wharton State Forest, a large preserve northwest of Atlantic City. The forest is about 90 miles south of midtown Manhattan. People who live on the Lower East Side and elsewhere in Manhattan also reported smelling the smoke.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility. The folks at Mozilla travel in a world in which PC thought dominates, and if you don’t believe me, take Nate Silver’s word for it (and after the 2012 election, I’m inclined to

The idiot hugging the subway pole. The gaggle of friends walking shoulder-to-shoulder down the street. The self-absorbed texter who continues pecking away at the top of the subway stairs. These, and many other offenders, are the rightful targets of the new book “NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette,” (HarperCollins), which should be handed out to newcomers at every point of entry. “If New York City were a game show,” says author and artist Nathan W.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
