    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.
    Here's a picture of the letter that was sent.


    This is disgusts me. Informing the mother of how everyone else in the neighbourhood was being affected by the actions of the mentally handicapped child is one thing, but the way the author wrote the letter by insulting the child directly with her words was way too much. What are your thoughts on this? What would you have done if you were in the author's position?
