    Today, May 17,2010 the Denton Independant School District in Denton, TX had my 11 year old granson, with Asperger’s disease arrested for a class 3 felony for hitting a teacher with a mop. He is in jail and will ahve to spend the night there. The same teacher caused him to have another spell not even a month ago by taking away a book and not returning it at the end of the day. He refused to get on the school bus because he wanted his book back. The principal called the police and threatened to call Child Protective services because my daughter and son-in-law couldnot get to the school in 20 min.
