More "Special Rights" for "Special Needs"

Yesterday I wrote about an ID Card for autistic drivers, with links to similar stories.

Now we have "autistic wrist bands."

These are well intentioned efforts to stop police from hurting neurodiverse people. There's a better way, though, and that's to train police not to hurt people who aren't causing active threats.

As always, I quote my friend Jisun:
It is not an individual’s responsibility to wear or show evidence of his or her diagnosis in order to remain safe and retain their basic civil rights.
Read the post. Keep this in mind.
