When it comes to teens, never attribute to ignorance what can be adequately explained by malice.

Teens cannot reason clearly so informing them of realities is less rehabilitative than vengeance. And Gavin's revenge is truly the most superb: there is no greater punishment than public shaming on a nationwide scale. Forever shall the perpetrators be reviled as the kids who ganged up on a sick child and beat him until he was hospitalized.

Gavin's courage to crush his enemies utterly rather than succumb to the petty, knee-jerk retribution of the justice system is one to which we all must aspire.

Reading this story made me sick. While I commend him for taking this course of action I feel at a point it becomes clear that you cant save someone from their ignorance. I think its awful how people with Aspergers. There was a kid in my class with it and he got shit from everyone even the teachers it was horrible. I tried to be as nice and helpful as could, but I admit even I poked fun at him sometimes (never intending to be mean it was more so that that's just my personality.) Ill never understand how people can lose their sense of compassion, the one thing that separates us from animals.
