Have heard a lot about downs syndrome lately with the walk coming up, but while a lot of downs people are nice, some are equally as dangerous. About 30 years ago a downs boy attacked my daughter and almost but her nose off, she still to this day are scared of them.

I think our news outlet should also point out the facts that they can be dangerous too.

I can't believe you are going to judge all down's syndrome people based on one incident. I know you said some are nice...wow. I guess everyone who takes prozac should be judged on the few people who have gone ballistic while taking the pills, or people with epilepsy should be put in a sanitarium. I am always amazed that even though it is 2012 there are still ignorant and narrow minded people in our society. Did it ever occur to you that maybe this boy was just mean? I mean we do have mean kids/people in this world! Just what should the media do? Post signs at the buddy walk saying BEWARE? I am sorry for what happened to your daughter but it sounds like you made matters worse!!! I feel even sorrier for the families of those with downs syndrome that have to hear such crap as this!!! Go to the buddy walk. Maybe your heart will change!!!

My little brother is 20 years old and has down syndrome! He is absolutely amazing! I have never met a "MEAN" down syndrome child. Maybe of people would t make fun of them or laugh at them they wouldn't do such things! I would say I feel sorry for your daughter but in some sense I don't think he "ATTACKED" her just randomly! My brother gets mean when people taunt him or make fun of him! It's people like you that make sisters like me wanna kick your a$$! Heck I bet my brother is smarter than most "NORMAL" people! Get a life "KATHY"

The child that attacked your daughter had an aggresion issue. It had NOTHING to do with Downs Syndrome.

Oh my goodness, people calm down! This person did NOT judge ALL down syndrome people.... read the comment again. They said SOME. Can you prove there are NONE that have aggression issues? S/he is just going by her personal experience just as you are.

Watch what you say about people with down syndrome. I have down syndrome and if all of society had your viewpoint they would have never have let me attempt to graduate high school. Luckily my teachers taught me all I need to know! Hope I get to wave at you from the other side!

I will not calm down!!!! She did say some, however she wanted the media to inform the public that some down syndrome people can be aggressive. She took an isolated experience and made it seem like the buddy walk needed to be monitored by the national guard!!!! Overreacting a bit don't you think? I have seen 2 year olds who are not down syndrome almost bite other kids noses off. People from all walks of life could possibly have aggression issues. Media please warn all to stay away from the human race!!!! Are you kidding me...seriously!!!!

And Kathy, STFU you silly woman. The media should cover ignorant close-minded citizens who bring all of American society down with their intolerance and general dumb-assery. YOU are the dangerous one.

go back and reread the first thread from Kathy. She states there has been alot of talk about DS with the "walk" coming up. She felt like people should be warned by the news about how mean some of these people can be. I was being sarcastic and said maybe we need to have the National Guard oversee the walk. Do you even know wth you are on here for?! Maybe you and Kathy should get together and have a meeting of the ignorant minds.

I remember life goes on which aired from 1989-1993 I believe, it was on Sunday nights on abc. I always thought corky the main character was a very bright young man, but he really didn't have a downs look or characteristics, if I didn't know the plot of the show, I would have thought he was like anyone else.

Anyone with a handicap can present issues, Kathy was only suggesting that the media present both positives and negatives of downs.

She did say some but only talked about one. Some means more than one. Stereotyping gets people in trouble, because you can miss out on something or someone that can change your life. Any human being can be dangerous do we all get judged for someone else's choices.
