    Posts and iReports that Make a Joke out of the Mentally Challenged are NOT a JOKE at all

    Tonight I was incredibly appalled to see an iReporter's idea of a joke, repeated 10-12 times in separate posts to one single iReport. Subject of the joke included a mentally challenged special need. Please don't do this. THINK! There are others out here reading and reporting and posting that are either victims or family members of someone that is a victim. If that iReporter happens to read this report, please have the decency to retract those posts and apologize. Life is fragile and we must respect our fellowman. A great YouTube URL spells this out as it regards respect for the mentally handicapped and their feelings. Take the time to watch it and read, it is only 1 minute long.
