from the article:

the mother called the police. She also canvassed the neighborhood trying to find out what neighbor was responsible.

It would have worked better if it had been, say, a sister and a friend both canvassing on her behalf. That would have been a show of strength.

(and I say this, even though there's been times of my life when I haven't had close friends, or really any friends at all)

The police in the suburbs are likely to take this more seriously, whereas in the city just likely to be viewed as more case load. Now, even with that said, the individual officer you deal with in the city might be excellent.

It's particularly important to get her immediate neighbors on her side if possible.

is unetitled even a word? And going around leaving rude stickers on your neighbors car seems much more like undisciplined, spoiled brat behavior than I imagine this moms son has displayed..considering autism 'symptoms' aren't just some choice like going around leaving rude stickers.
Why can't the police just fingerprint it...if it happened while the car was on private property that would be trespassing and maybe even harrassment/or some sort of harm to property at least.

It wouldn't be surprising if the person behind this was someone from this kid's school. I remember from my years in MS that me and a person also on the spectrum were often sent to the principal's office by a distrusting teacher who believed that my AS and his Autism weren't real.

I was also wondering about "unetitled." I'm not sure what it's supposed to mean. Entitled? Unedited? Nothing I think of makes much sense, but then this kind of thing usually isn't done by a master craftsman.

Just a coward going around leaving tags on the car because they don't have the balls say to them to the mother's face so they must remain anonymous.

Unetitled I think is meant to be unentitled, which I don't think is a word but I think means not entitled, which begs the question, entitled to what? And I guess undisciplined and spoiled brat answer the question. I suspect this is the work of neighbours and it sucks that this is what they think of the kid.

Hey, these are the exact same words my grandmother would use to describe me! And as for the "unentitled" (???), she used it in the context that i am not entitled to live life on this planet.

It shouldn't have had to take this many people to figure out what this genius was trying to say. Bully fail.

I agree; this is harassment and should be treated as such. As for the "unetitled" bit I'm guessing it was meant as unentitled, because there is a group of people who believe that wanting the same dignity and respect for someone on the spectrum as someone off it is acting "entitled" (aka wanting special privileges which one does not deserve).

It may be some kid trying to get attention from his prank. That would explain the nonsensical word.

I'm guessing they meant to say entitled. It merely shows the ignorance and stupidity of the perpetrator.

People like the ones who left the stickers are the reason why neurodiverse individuals continue to struggle in today's world. These ignorant, self-righteous individuals... they don't know what the f**k they are talking about. Unfortunately, since racism, sexism, and homophobia still exist, it is not at all surprising that people with these disgusting attitudes still exist as well.
