DISGUSTING: Bullies Turn Ice-Bucket Challenge into Sick Joke on Child with Autism

DISGUSTING: Bullies Turn Ice-Bucket Challenge into Sick Joke on Child with Autism
As I have said in the past, I have a son with special needs on the autism spectrum. I don’t ask for special consideration, or pity for my situation, but this requires special handling of his sensory needs – this can be too hot, too cold, or too rough, too soft….the list really never ends of things that can set him off into a meltdown or a fit of self harming. The story that follows is absolutely appalling to any parent, and even more horrific to someone who has a special needs child that fully understands the gravity of what happened to this child:

BAY VILLAGE, Ohio – Police are investigating an alleged case of bullying involving a teenager with autism who took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

“Once we found out about it, we were just horrified,” said Diane, the mother of the Bay High School student.  She claimed her youngest son was videotaped as feces, urine, spit and cigarette butts were dumped on his head by a group of juveniles.

“I want these kids held accountable for what they did to him and they targeted somebody who just didn’t really understand what was going on,” she said.

FOX 8 News is not identifying the family by last name to help protect their son.

According to the victim’s mom, Diane, the video was discovered on her 15-year-old son’s cell phone. She, along with her husband and other son, Jacob, wants it to be made public.

“I mean, the first thing that popped into my mind was like, why could someone – how could someone do this?” said Jacob. “How could someone really be this cruel to someone?”

In the video, the boy with autism is seen standing in the driveway of a home off school grounds. He’s wearing only his underwear as a bucket of fluid is poured from the roof of the garage. The bucket allegedly contained a mix of bodily fluids instead of ice water.

“He was embarrassed because he did not know what the contents were until afterwards and then he didn’t want anybody to know,” said his mom. “They used his phone to tape it and they put it up on Instagram.”

“This is just too far. It’s really bad,” said his brother, Jacob.

The Bay Village Police Department was made aware of the alleged incident on Wednesday. According to Det. Kevin Krolkosky, criminal charges could be filed.

WARNING: This video shows graphic content of human waste being dumped on a child. Please use caution while viewing around anyone under 18.

**Important note: The family asked that we show the video to make other parents aware of bullying.**

The family has every reason to be outraged. This was a child who likely wanted to go along with a group for acceptance, and to do something “cool” with people he believed to be friends. I hope these horrid people who thought this joke was so funny are locked up for a long, long time.
