Teen with Asperger’s syndrome teaches bullies who beat him up a life lesson
HIGHLAND, Ill. — An Illinois teenager with Asperger's syndrome taught his cowardly bullies a lesson for the ages after dropping charges and opting for a more productive way of getting back at his tormentors. Gavin's mother Cortnie Stone wrote a detailed Facebook post about her son's condition — a developmental disorder that affects the ability to effectively socialize and communicate — and his run-in with a gang of teens who beat him up because he's "weird."
