That is disgusting. I can’t believe anyone could be so evil. I hope she is contacting police!

I’d go on a rampage. I’d spread it to every website I could find. I’d blog about it, tweet about it, share it on facebook with groups of parents with children with disabilities. I would show the school and teachers. I would make copies and hand it out to neighbors. I would take it to newspapers. I would take it to the police. I would do everything in my power to shame the hell out of that neighbor.

@FutureDrAtkins:  i’d definitely caution her to at least make the police aware of the situation. someone who could say such vicious things to someone is just one step away from crazy enough to do something about it. at least if the police have a complaint in the system she’ll have some sort of history to fall back on.

if i were her i would have picked up the letter with tweezers and put it in a plastic bag….just in case they need to fingerprint it later. :/ people are insane. such trash.

This is so horrible and so sad. And there all mean and nasty people all over. That letter reminded me of a letter a popular restaurant owner just posted on FB last week! This letter was sent to his wife by an obviously jealous customer. My jaw dropped (reading BOTH letters)

I call pure TROLL. I’d like to see some evidence this mother with the handicapped son actually exsists – not just a photo of a letter forwarded along the internet. (That anyone could write and claim they received)

A similar “letter” floated around my quite well to do section of town that was equally outrageous – only it focused on making sure the “poor trashy” kids couldn’t go to the local High School.  It was insanely racists and classist – it got the whole zipcode frothing with outrage – and it was all just a TROLL mocking what they thought the attitudes were of the locals.  It wasn’t sent to every person in the zipcode – just an anonmously FB account posted it saying they “and all their neighbors” received it and before you know it politicians are even weighing in.

People love to get outraged something so obviously black and white bad. In my experience, esp with written communication, people tend to cloister they prejudices carefully in words, not just become a super villian picking on special needs kids.

I am so disgusted right now… it is just heartbreaking that people can be so cruel… and cowardly! what a disgusting human being.

I agree with PP… publicize this LIKE CRAZY.

Wow. The woman who wrote it has some serious problems. It must be difficult going through life with that many issues. I pity her, honestly. I bet if her husband or kids knew she wrote that they would be disgusted and embarrased.

Wow…that’s despicable. 

I’m debating whether to suggest this, but part of me thinks your friend should fight fire with fire. Post this letter publically, and let the world see intolerance. 

Just out of curiosity, how old is her child?

@FutureDrAtkins:  I just realized you are from Indiana (me too)! The letter I posted is from someone in Indiana also. Sad……

@ohmybears48:  my thoughts exactly. Hopefully publically shaming the offender would reveal who she was.

I would also have to sit on my hands at night, to stop myself from burning the persons house down if I ever found out who it was.

I literally teared up reading that. How horrible! I cannot believe another human being, let alone a mother could be so hateful, though I don’t necessarily believe the letter was from a mother. It could have been from anyone.   What a coward!

I don’t even know what the best route to go in this situation is – police? media? nothing?  

I think I’d probably let the police know, just in case there are any sort of physicial attacks attempted so they have a a record of it.  Other than that, I’d probably try my best to not let it get to me and continue living my life as normal. Sometimes, turning the other cheek is the best way to go.  Your poor friend though.  I can’t even imagine.

@FutureDrAtkins:  What type of disability does the child have?  I understand if you don’t want to share that information.

This makes me sick to my stomach…I think the writerof the OP and PPs letters are just torchered souls. People who are just miserable in their own lives just have to find someone to dump their bitterness own…They are sick.

Woah.

See, when I first started reading it I thought, ‘okay, they’re a bit harsh,but I can respect that they may be bothered by various sounds coming from the house and want to politely ask that something be done about it’ and then all that happened and I was like :O YOU’RE A HORRIBLE HUMAN BEING!

They could have very easily worded this in a way that would have got results (i.e. less noise if that’s the real issue) without being absolute wastes of space in the process. Some people’s attitudes disgust me – you don’t have the right to say whatever you like to whomever you like!
