Cops rescue autistic boy’s birthday party

Oh my god, what a wonderful story.

Police in Yukon, Oklahoma saved the birthday of a young autistic boy.

CNN just showed a wonderful report about three-year-old Brayden Hubbard who almost had his birthday ruined when family after family pulled out of his birthday party.

Brayden’s mom explained that other mothers are uncomfortable being around her son, because he’s autistic.

Just when things couldn’t get worse, there’s a knock at the door and it’s the police. But the cops didn’t show up to cause trouble, they showed up because one decent neighbor had called and asked if they wouldn’t come to the party as guests.

And did they.

At least 9 cops showed up, posed for photos, took the boy for a tour of their car and everything. Here’s the local news report on it, and you can read about it as well.

    I think only vaccinations cause autism

    “a concerned father asked me if his son could catch autism”

    Oy, vey!

    Meanwhile, in other sections of Megatropolis, crime is running rampant cus cops are fucking off on Hannity’s dime.

    I’m so glad I don’t have kids.

    People can be such jerks. I’m glad the cops did something nice for once.

    I mean honestly, autism is not a contagious disease… like conservatism.

    These Yukon, Ok cops get my highly unofficial Sgt. Preston award.

  8. emjayay says:

    What were they afraid of. This does not appear to be a kid with a type of autism that might be problematical for a little party in his own house.

  9. They’re not easy to find. I’d love to find more.

  10. Houndentenor says:

    I’m glad people stepped up. Good on them. But shame on the parents for being assholes so that this was necessary.

  11. TampaZeke says:

    This is what “to serve and protect” looks like. It’s good to hear good stories about good cops.

  12. BeccaM says:

    Good for these police officers and it sounds like the kid had a good time. Thanks for these uplifting stories from time to time, John — we need ’em now more than ever.

  13. S1AMER says:

    Bravo, cops of Yukon, Oklahoma! And thank you!

    Autism is so tough for little kids. Ignorant people (particularly adults who could, and should, know better) only make life tougher. That makes me extra glad to see some adults doing right by young Brayden.

    As the father of an autistic boy, I can attest to the unwarranted fears of some other parents. Once a concerned father asked me if his son could catch autism from my son. Seriously.
