  •  dsnodgrass thank-you for the follow-up (18+ / 0-)

    I sent the link to the article to my brother and sister-in-law.  My nephew, their oldest son is 14 and has an autism spectrum disorder complicated by seizures.  He has a great deal of difficulty in school much like your son.  This is certainly an issue of which all parents should be made aware, but especially kids with such issues as your son and my nephew.

    I want to add that this really stinks.  Kids who do a lot of drugs generally are very careful who they deal with and they don't trust "new" kids who suddenly show up wanting drugs.  I doubt this sting operation accomplished much other than create publicity for the police and the District Attorney and ruin the lives of a few gullible kids in need of a friend.  I doubt it put a dent in the kids who are actually using and dealing drugs on a regular basis.  

    Glad to see these are now getting some bad PR slung back at them for their use of such heavy handed stunts such this one.
