A Canadian family says they were sent a hate filled anonymous letter concerning their autistic son.

The sender wrote 13-year-old Max is such a nuisance the family should move or euthanize the teen. The typed letter signed by “one p-o'd mother” and has since gone viral.

"Yes, the part about donating his body parts to science because he's no good for anything else-that made me wanna puke, and then when it ended saying to euthanize him?" said the mother.

Police are now investigating. Neighbors are supporting the family.

I think the person that should be euthanized here is not the child, but the lowlife that wrote this letter.

What right does this disgusting parent have to write such a piece of garbage? What ignorant waste of space thinks its ok to write such a vile spew of filth? Being that it was TYPED not signed by "a pissed off mother" who is obviously a coward and does not possess the "guts" she proclaims to have, I would believe that this ignorant individual has spoken more then one cruel word about this CHILD. This is definitely a hate crime and should be treated as such. Now I do not know what the laws are there for hate crimes but here in Florida they are taken seriously. This "mother" needs to be found and held accountable for child abuse because she effectively threatened great bodily harm with her euthanization statement. It should be further enhanced by the fact this is a HATE crime. Disabled people, INCLUDING and especially CHILDREN are protected under FEDERAL laws. Find the one person that spewls obscenities out of her mouth in regards to "retard" and is completely ignorant AND the pompous female dog that whispers ugliness and hatred and you pretty much have your culprit.I would not be surprised to find out that this letter is a collective letter from the "upstanding" members of that neighborhood. Good luck at getting these vicious females to give one another up. To the MOM of this wonderful child. You are a brave and AWESOME mom don't let the crass ignorance of that letter deter you from know you have been blessed. Autistic children are pure souls and are only the gift God gives to very special MOM's that have the love and kindness in their hearts like no other. I have all the respect for you in the world!!! Sincerely, Joyce Knott, Pinellas County Florida

Instead of standing around with your thumbs up your butts, why don't you find out who on that block owns pinkish purplish looking paper. Think about it and you'll find your culprit.
