How An Asperger Teen Took 'Revenge' From Assaulting Thugs Is Amazing!

Gavin Joseph, Asperger's sufferer, from New Baden, Illinois, was tricked into coming over to a crowd of people before being choked and punched in front of them and left bruised, concussed and with a fractured nose after the savage unprovoked attack.

After this brutal attack, anyone would lose hope and seek help from authority. But this brave man did something else to teach them a lesson. Gavin's mum was so proud of her son's reaction to the ordeal she decided to post his story on Facebook - and so far it was been shared by nearly 100,000 users.

Gavin asked that the offending thugs to watch with their families, a 20-minute video message he taped so they could see the damage done and hear things from his perspective, and then write an essay on Asperger's Syndrome.

His mother wrote this which dragged attention of millions of users.

She wrote: "You can't see Asperger's since it's not a visible disability, it's a social/emotional one that makes relationships difficult to attain. It doesn't prohibit his movement, or ability to walk, but it makes everyday interactions with people very difficult. He can appear rude, impatient, "weird", detached, or uninterested, but this is not intentional."

He did not press charges, but requested their community service be disability related, that they write a paper on Asperger's, and that they watch a 20 minute video statement he taped while their families were present so they could see the damage they did and hear the event from his perspective.

We salute the bold decision taken by Gavin and hope he recovers from this condition soon.
