This news article officially states that Adam Lanza's mother and brother merely speculated that he had Asperger syndrome, and that he didn't have a confirmed diagnosis of Asperger syndrome. Please read this: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-204_162-57559600/aspergers-not-likely-to-make-people-violent-experts-emphasize/
Furthermore, Dr. Elizabeth Laugeson, an autism specialist at UCLA stated that "The vast majority of people with Asperger's are law-abiding citizens that don't act violently against others. I think it would be [b]sad to vilify a community because of the action of one person who hasn't been confirmed to have the diagnosis."[/b] There is no way that someone with Asperger syndrome or autism could have POSSIBLY carried out a mass shooting at an elementary school, or anywhere else. Nor could a person with Asperger syndrome or autism have shot a 6-year-old over 60 times People with Asperger syndrome are far too benign, pacifistic, and empathetic to go on mass shootings. As a clinical psychologist who as worked with ppl w Asperger's and autism, I KNOW THIS!!!! Also, refer to this article:http://www.healthzone.ca/health/article/633688
Most likely, Adam Lanza was either a psychopath or a paranoid schizophrenic, and many articles have indicated that he could have been both. Highly conceivable.
AutisticPsychopath wrote:You are just ingorant. Not having an official diagnosis doesn't automatically mean you don't have Asperger's Syndrome. It is a biological condition, just because you get diagnosed doesn't mean it magically appeared. Adam Lanza showed strong traits of Asperger's and doesn't match the criteria for psychopathy. Just because you kill someone doesn't make you a psychopath, you obviously have no knowledge on this at all and citing random news articles suggests this further. Most psychopaths actually never kill someone. Finally, just because you have Asperger's doesn't mean you are unable to kill or do terrible things. Many mass murderers such as Adolf Hitler or Ted Bundy had Asperger's Syndrome.
