Autism Society statement on the beating of Aaron Hill

“We at the Autism Society are shocked and saddened by the Aug. 8 beating of Aaron Hill, a 16-year-old with autism in Okeechobee, Florida.

That several partygoers would have such a lack of concern for a fellow human as to stand feet from Wheeler and watch him seriously injure Hill is deeply disturbing.
