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.
