Today, Monday July 23rd, 2012, Joe Scarborough on his morning show "Morning Joe" said that he believed Mass Murder James Holmes from the Aurora Colorado shooting was on the "autism scale". As an autistic individual who is the same age as James I want to encourage everyone to understand that autism has no links with crime and that this speculation must not be tolerated.

Please join me in helping make sure Joe along with news outlets around the world understand what autism is and isn't in today's society by signing this petition here: http://www.change.org/petitions/joe-s....

This is the entire dialogue of what Joe said, "As soon as I heard about this shooting, I knew who it was. I knew it was a young, white male, probably from an affluent neighborhood, disconnected from society -- it happens time and time again. Most of it has to do with mental health; you have these people that are somewhere, I believe, on the autism scale," said Scarborough, whose son has Asperger's syndrome. "I don't know if that's the case here, but it happens more often than not. People that can walk around in society, they can function on college campuses -- they can even excel on college campuses -- but are socially disconnected."
