Words fail me.

I recently came across a blog post about a recent news story. The basic summary is that a Newfoundland police officer noticed an autistic boy's odd gait as he left a video store. The officer then reached the conclusion that the boy was drunk. When the boy didn't respond appropriately to the officer's approach... he was arrested and thrown into jail overnight, without so much as a phone call or a breathalizer test.

As the title says, words are failing me here. Someone needs disabilities training...
