Don't the announcers and media have the sense to realize it isn't a good idea to single the kid out? He obviously has Autistic traits. Not only that but Comcast had the nerve to put it on their main news site. WHY? Why is this news? I don't even live in Arizona and its on my news? Why are they singling this kid out? Autistic kids and their parents get enough staring and rude comments, and then to make this even more public? Terrible!

He's playing air guitar, doesn't mean he's automatically autistic.

Well it really dosent say any where that he is autistic, however i do agree, families with autism don't need more publicity they get enough of it on there own, however i do find to quite strange that the camera man sat there focusing on the kid for like 25 seconds, im sure there are other fans to look at.
