Father to Brooke Baldwin: "Physically, I think I would need some restraint"

CNN's Brooke Baldwin spoke to the father of a 13-year-old autistic child whose parents received an anonymous letter suggesting the boy's parents 'euthanize' him. James Begley shared with Baldwin that the police are now conducting an ongoing investigation into who wrote and sent the letter.

When asked what he'd say to the person, Begley said, "Physically, I think I would need some restraint... you know, because I might try to physically kill the person." "But to say something to this person, to be honest, I think it would be an utter waste of time."
