  1. So what about the person that became crippled by the negligence of this young man? Forgot about him already? Omg 😧 So the person that will spend the rest of his life on wheelchair is not as important as this guy coming out of jail, right 🤦🏼‍♀️🙄👏

  2. This is isad, but he should never drive. ever again. ever. Hed seems very clear and articulate for his condition. What about the victim he hurt?

  3. This punk has zero remorse for what he has done. I'm sure he'll get his license back in ten years and end up killing an entire family on the road.

  4. This is my worst fear for my autistic son. Its terrifying thinking about the bad things that could happen when they grow up.

  5. The individualS who licensed an individual with autism are the ones who need imprisonment, along with the judge who sentenced Mr. Rushin and the governor who waited so long to release him.

  6. Why the "H" was the bee swarm story given the lead in this snippet? It gave the impression that either the car owner or the beekeeper had gone to prison! Finally came the imprisonment-and-release story. Poorly played, ABC YouTube staff. Pathetic!

  7. Lawyers have probably told them not to make any public statements about the man who was crippled, for fear of possible future legal problems. They probably want to reach out to the crippled man but have been advised not to do anything.

  8. God bless mom and son. My niece has an autistic son and he is very talented like all autistic children globally.

  9. Rushin drove a car & crippled someone but they're all excited about mac & cheese & salmon? He may have problems but what is wrong with that woman? And the reporter ends with "in glad it all worked out for you". What about the guy who's life is totally changed? Where's his 7 minutes?

  10. Why should an autistic person be let out of jail? He knows right from wrong. That's a very bad precedent to set in law. So now autistic people can cripple people with their car.(notice they never mentioned the victim). Now autism can be used as a defense for murder, rape or anything for that matter. This is a very bad idea.

  11. The Bee keeper is doing the right taking the Bee home and ye can form a Bee hives that they can makes Honey.My Grand Grandma use to have her own Bee hives and I use to taste Honey that the Bee made,And suck on the Honey comb while living in the west Indies.Sometimes I see one special Bee the Queen Bee,Have a Bless day everyone Happy Easter.

  12. He should had never been allowed to drive period. I feel for the victims who have to live with what he caused. I am so sick of this race baiting bs

  13. What’s with the Bullshit 🐝 story in front of the real video. Something tells me it’s not an accident. SMDH

  14. Given his mental status/situation, why was Matthew given a drivers license? and
    why was Matthew allowed to drive in the first place? The situation was an accident, 
    but if Michael is going to use his mental status as a tool for his defense, he can not also
    have it both ways by receiving licenses and vehicles to drive as if he is a perfectly healthy individual.

    Someone got hurt in this accident so Matthew does have some responsibility to bear

  15. Bad idea to build a society that’s dependent on cars. Very dangerous activity that you’re basically requiring everyone to do, maNy people have different kinds of problems, plus elderly people, people who drink and their judgement is impaired etc… it’s just inviting all kinds of problems that we then blame on the individual, but the fact is it was a very poor decision by the American people to build a country so dependent on operating large metal vehicles at fast rates of speed just for anyone to go about their life.

  16. If a person is suicidal, I don't give two shits if they take themselves out of the equation, but do not take others with you, especially what Matthew nearly did. If this was myself or my family he did this to, I'd fight tooth & nail to keep him locked up. Autism/race does not play a role in this. He's fortunate to be free, he better act like it. I have a bad feeling though.

  17. Hey who wants to turn to Christ and live for Jesus and obey him ? This life is temporary compared to all eternity in hell. Jesus loved you to die for you and this isn’t a religion it’s a relationship. You need read the Bible it’s very important it has all the answers you need. Now you may say but I’m a good person or God loves me and if you believe in God then your good but I bet you didn’t know that not even forgiving others is enough to send you to hell Jesus is very serious about sin. No sin is worth going hell for I would turn to Christ if I were you Jesus is coming soon and he’s coming back with no mercy. But the good news is that he’s happy to forgive you of your sins and wants to talk and he wants to have a relationship with you and be your Heavenly Father you can spend a beautiful life in heaven forever repent or perish you can’t continue to live in sin.yi

  18. ABC should be ashamed for posting this interview and portraying him as a victim. He WAS NOT the victim in this situation.

  19. That’s messed up. If he was mentally challenged what was he doing behind the wheel of automobile? He had an episode? an episode and injured someone? What kind of relief did the family’s get that Matthew hurt? They get the short end of the stock? It could be said that alcoholics have mental health issues and episodes when they operate a vehicle and killed someone. Drunk drivers are prosecuted to the full extent of the law and addiction is a mental health issue too but they aren’t getting out of jail. This kid should not have been behind a car at all if he has mental issues. If the authorities didn’t allow him to drive then he would not be in this situation. He should remain in jail for injuring someone for the rest of their lives. People who have mental health issues should not be given the same rights as a normal person and this guy got out of jail because he was autistic? Then the worst of worst law breakers could just act like they have mental issues and get out of jail for free! This kid should’ve stayed in jail. The only reason he didn’t stay in jail is because he has autism and he’s of color.

  20. ~~covid-19 originated in the United States. Two virus leaks occurred in the Fort Detrick Biolab in the U.S. in 2019, and the United States virus infected the world.Americans are trying to hide the truth

  22. Matthew rushin should have never been put into jail he was feeling overwhelmed and returned back after a little bit of time passed so he could collect himself I'm am disappointed in my city for even allowing him to not only be jailed but also to put him in a hardened place were he was beat up

  23. I'm so glad that this young man is out of prison. Like wow our justice system is weak for sending him in the first place.

  24. What exactly does "having an emotional episode" mean? School shooters have emotional episodes, wife killers too, as do rapist cops…but they are still kept in prison. I don't buy this bs one bit.

  25. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted".

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    "If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land."

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.
