Video Shows Autistic Boy Getting Beaten Up at House Party With Parent Present
There seems to be a disturbing trend of autistic teenagers being victimized by their students and peers highlighted in the news. But one story is especially horrific, because in this instance, a parent was there, watching a boy with autism get assaulted, and did nothing.
A man is in jail today after being charged with child abuse for beating a a 16-year-old autistic boy at a party last Friday. Andrew Wheeler of Okeechobee, Florida was arrested after the assault occurred.
Wheeler claims that he was told the unidentified boy had hit one of the girls at the party.
But the young man who was assaulted told police that he had gotten drunk and passed out, and the girl who was holding the party wanted him to leave. He said that the man who attacked him had bought alcohol for the teenagers and was drinking at the party.
In the raw unedited video, the mother of the young girl tells the partiers to settle down because she had another child trying to sleep.
After the mother broke up the fight, she told the young boy to leave. Police officers would later find him passed out in the middle of the road.
For some insane reason, the parent at the party, identified as Evadean Lydecker, has not been charged with any crime, even though she reportedly drove the teenagers to get alcohol, was drinking at the home with them, and allowed an autistic teenager to get beaten up without intervening. Everyone that allowed this atrocity to go on, everyone in that room who did nothing while that boy was beaten, should be put in jail and made an example of.
