Autistic Licence

  [vote for,

Yer actual photo ID Autistic Licence card, available in a variety of bogus names.

Simply produce this when caught in some heinous public act.

       Pun or no pun, there was an opportunity for a viable idea here.
Autistic individuals are victimized far more often than non-autistic individuals, sometimes from everyone around them including law enforcement.

       An authentic certificate of just where a person is on the autism spectrum might go a long way towards smoothing out potential misunderstandings.   

       It's open to abuse sure, but so is handicapped parking tags.
Haters always gonna hate...

       The problem mostly arises with the police finding the certificate on the recently deceased.

       //Wouldn't the same go for court appearances ?   

       Erm, I was thinking, when caught doing something...questionable..with a two s*** g****s and a piece of liver in a public place (as we all must have been at one time or another), simply whip out the licence and avoid those pesky court appearances.   

       I will draw your attention to Exhibit A (linky) "naked man released from washing machine by police". If only he had kept the AL card around his neck on the lanyard provided...

       How do you know the man in the article was autistic? Am I missing a joke about the similarity of spelling between "autistic" and "Austrailian"?

       // "autistic" and "Austrailian"? //   

       One has extreme difficulty relating to and communicating with other human beings to the point of near-total social isolation, and the other is a medical condition.

       ... back on topic, I think this idea tackles the problem from the wrong end. A better solution would be not to let autistic people get away with more, but to let histrionic people get away with less.
