Adult with Autism & Mental Illness Arrested in Dallas "Acting Odd"

Dallasskyline The headline of this story Autistic Man's Acting Odd Lands Him in Jail only covers half of his diagnosis, and makes a critical exclusion. He also has schizophrenia, which certainly is connected with "odd" behavior. Regardless, his situation is sad and worth sharing. The future is now.

The 28-year-old hides inside his small Dallas apartment because of fear that police will arrest him wherever he goes.

“I see a cop right there, so that tells me that I should not be going outside not for nothing.”

Wimberly is both autistic and schizophrenic, so he struggles with self-control.

Despite his condition, Blake has progressed enough to live on his own.  But his mother, Lori Lux, says a trip to a grocery store started a downward spiral.  “I see a man who has shut down,” she said.

Yet another regrettable event that proves that society is totally unprepared for the onslaught of autism about to descend on this country. "Acting odd" would describe a lot of the typically autistic behavior many of our children display. When more and more autistic young adults are living in apartments and group homes this kind of thing will be a happening everywhere. Again we'll probably adjust. Police will receive special training. There'll be calls for registration for autistic adults. But maybe the public will wake up to the autism generation when they're living all around them.
