Fire Joe Scarborough for his remarks about autistic people

After James Holmes killed 12 innocent people and wounded many others in the Aurora theater shooting, Joe Scarborough went on MSNBC and made remarks suggesting that Holmes was on the autism spectrum and made an unfair, sweeping generalization that people with autism and autism spectrum disorders are the types of people who perpetrate mass murders.

As someone with Asperger's Syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder, what Scarborough did offended me.

What Scarborough did is WRONG. Joe Scarborough has no regard for journalism ethics. MSNBC should fire Joe Scarborough immediately.

I may have a developmental disorder, but I'm not stupid!
