Tortured and shot in Alva, OK  
An autistic man was tortured and shot with various guns and branded in Alva, OK. Again, another example of hickpack mentality.

The man's name is Harry Dahling should you come across it elsewhere. One of the commenters got the trend right. Bullies (kidnappers/saddistic criminals more accurately) are now videotaping their horrors. :(

Further research turned up more gruesomeness:

Orcutt said Jesse Wallace later told police he transferred the video's contents onto the DVDs and hoped to sell them.

"They wanted to make ‘Jackass' style video,” Orcutt said, referring to the former cable TV series depicting young men injuring themselves using different methods.

Orcutt said Wallace "didn't have an answer” for how he planned to sell the videos.

"He hadn't thought it through, obviously,” Orcutt said.

Orcutt said the abuse of the young autistic man made up 15 to 20 minutes of the video. In other segments, Dahling subjected his "friends” to abuse, which Orcutt conceded could pose a problem if the case goes to trial.

Orcutt said he suspects the video was shot within the past six months.

‘Boredom, mayhem and chaos'
According to the affidavit, a police officer recognized Wallace in the video because of a previous traffic stop.
The video depicted Wallace and others branding the letters B, M and C into Dahling's chest, the affidavit states.

Wallace told police those letters stand for boredom, mayhem and chaos, Orcutt said.

During the branding, the victim is heard screaming, "No, no, no, stop it, I don't want to go through any more pain,” according to the affidavit.

After being shot several times with the BB pistol and another gun, the victim cries and attempts to leave, but is cornered by Wallace and another man and told to get down or he will be shot again, the affidavit states.

He screams, "I'll be good, I'll be good” but Wallace uses the gun barrel to push the man's head to the floor, according to the affidavit.

In another scene, Dahling is shot several times with a paintball gun, then lifts his shirt to reveal welts.

Two could face 17 years
Wallace, 21, and Tarver, 22, were charged Tuesday in Woods County District Court with maiming and assault and battery with a deadly weapon. The combined maximum sentence is 17 years in prison upon conviction.
Wallace is on probation after pleading guilty last year to child abuse, domestic abuse and two cruelty-to-animals charges.

The child abuse involved a spiral leg fracture and bite marks on his 2-year-old stepchild. Wallace gave conflicting accounts about how the injuries occurred, court records show.

One of the animal cruelty charges involved a kitten that was thrown against a wall.


Bullies are cowards. They can't fight anyone their size so they pick on those whom they think they can get away with it with. It's not just about seeing an advantage and using it in a sporting environment, it's about secretly, covertly and cowardly taking out one's weakness out on others perceived to be weaker so as to consume their petty filthy weak lusts and pride.

These men should be branded Cowards for life in the public eye. While I take no pleasure in humiliation for these weak cowards, I think they deserve a taste of their own medicine out of Justice. I'll not enact cruelty on them as they did but I will call a duck a duck here.

I feel for Harry, he probably thought they were his friends :(

Wallace makes me sick. I wish I could spend an hour or two with him... I'd like to show him a thing or two.

Mind if I repost in my journal? I will of course give credit.

Thank you for helping to spread awareness! Like you I am fearful of what the future holds for my son. It especially hit home in that one of the phrases my son does use is "Mommy help me"

Please spread any information here as you see fit. My commentary you are free to credit or not. I'm mostly concerned with the overall problem of abuse and the victims.

It's a shame that this is even a concern and even more distressing that the general public is not really aware that there is even a problem. Unlike you I would act cruely towards these two though.

This young man is my brother
Harry Dahling, or actually Harry Dahling Jr. is my little brother. My younger sister & I haven't seen him in over 15yrs due to my parents losing custody of him when he was 5 because they could not care for him. Today, as a matter of fact, I am a counselor who specializes in working w/those who are diagnosed in the PDD & Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Anyway, I wanted to comment about this story because of the fact that we haven't seen him, have been looking for him for yrs & we finally found him today & THIS is how we find out about him. I'm angry & heartbroken. I'm over-joyed to have finally found my little brother & we hope to reunite soon, but so sickened by the fact that we've missed him, worried about him all these yrs, plus his childhood wasn't that great (neither was ours, sadly), hoped that he had a better life now & this is how we find out about him. The shock & horror of it is almost close to finding a long lost sibling, only to learn that they're dead. I'm thankful that he is alive & from what I've learned, is actually doing well. I'm just in shock, I guess, is all.

Thank-you for bringing light to this.

Hello Everyone,
My name is Christopher Michael Flint. I have a daughter with autism, and I’ve also lost one of my best friends, Dion who upon entering the workforce, was ridiculed, and bullied, until Dion took his own life because he didn’t want to live a life where he was going to be treated in such a way because he has autism.

I’m making a film, about abuse of people with autism in the workplace, do any of you have any suggestions or stories about such cases, that I might be able to use in my film, to get this important message to audiences? I’ve already written them script, but I would love to be able to put more real life situations into my film out side of my own experiences. My email is phoenix_sunnyday@yahoo.com thank you all for your time.

Re: Questiom
There is a wall of abuse related deaths here:


For more bullying specific ones, I have had a hard time getting news stories. I myself have been bullied heavily growing up. Most of it remains in shadows of my past and hasn't been discussed much.

May also want to check out these autistic pov articles here by older writing verbal autistics:
