Parent Of Bullied Autistic Child Tells Deminski And Doyle How He’s Trying To ‘Regain His Son’s Dignity’
In a story that made international news recently, Cherry Hill Father Stuart Chaifetz wired his 10-year-old autistic son to find out what was causing him stress at school.
Wednesday afternoon during the 6 p.m. hour, Stuart Chaifetz joined us on the air in an exclusive interview. Chaifetz recounted the compelling story firsthand and gave our audience up-to-the-second updates on the status of all who were involved.
According to our own Stacy Proebstle,
The incident began when officials at the Horace Mann Elementary School said Aiken Chaifetz was becoming violent. But his dad, Stuart Chaifetz, says he had never shown such tendencies before which is why he sent his son to school wearing a wire.
The recording revealed some horrific things. Chaifetz told Deminski and Doyle, “the entire first 15 minutes are a nightmare.”
The teachers would yell inappropriately at the students and discuss indecent issues amongst themselves as if the students weren’t present. This was all made public when Stuart took to YouTube to record a video talking about what had happened. He wants every teacher involved in this incident not only to be fired, but also to be unable to teach ever again.
Stuart said, “this is all about regaining my son’s dignity. They think these kids aren’t aware of what’s going on. They treated them like robots that you can turn on and off when you want. But they’re not. They absorb everything. All of these wounds are inside my son.”
During Wednesday’s interview, Stuart also told Deminski and Doyle that “he hasn’t hit anyone in school. It has completely gone away. He was lashing out based on that humiliation. They were crushing his spirit.They were on the verge of destroying this beautiful child. I don’t want these people to have the opportunity to hurt someone again.”
