THE STORY:

Autism is not a crime.

My name is Paul Gordo and I have autism. There are many people, like me, who needed therapy, but did not receive it from the school system. There are things I do that are because of my autism. There are many people like me who become adults and still do not receive the help they need, but are charged with a crime when we panic. Imagine what it is like to be fleeing a burning building. Imagine being charged with assault because you pushed down someone while fleeing that burning building. Because I think differently and did not receive the help I needed, I am being labeled a criminal by the justice system. I feel very sorry for the woman I pushed and am glad she is not permanently injured.

Autism is not a crime.

I have been let down by his school district and the local justice system. I am currently going to trial for felony assault because I pushed down a woman during a moment of panic. I need your help to fund my special needs trust. I have a Change.org petition with 10, 000 supporters. If each one of the 10,000 supporters gave just $5, I would have $50,000. I hope to get a little of bit of support from a lot of people.

My father helped me write this and I approve this message.
