This is terribly sad. Our system is not equipped to appropriately handle people with needs.

I am a mother of a autistic son, when he is upset he repeats what you say due to fear and not understanding what is going on. Please relook at this case and set him free he has no criminal background

This is an absurd sentence. In 2008, I had a seizure coming home from work. No warning whatsoever a seizure was imminent. Destroyed a tree. Totaled my car. I almost died that night. Woke up in the back of an ambulance. Didn't get so much as a ticket. This man's sentence is overly aggressive and cruel.

The judicial system should be fair to ALL people, not based on the color of one’s skin! This autistic man should not be in prison!!

As a father of black teenager on the autism spectrum this breaks my heart. I can see my son in Matthew. I can see this happening to my son and the thought is terrifying. Matthew didn’t mean to cause any harm. It was an accident and his punishment is at the peak of injustice. Free Matthew NOW!

There shouldn’t have been a sentence like this in the first place. He deserves better.
