Yeah, geeze. I encounter it quite often as well. Parents who don't know what the hell to do either, and it's not because they didn't discipline the kid or raised him in a ****ed up manner... unfortunately some humans are just broken, and there may be no way to fix them. Also unfortunately, we don't really have a humane, ethical, and socially acceptable way to protect the sufferer of the illness, the family, or society from these people if things go horribly wrong.
I deal with kids every day that I worry could snap like this. I don't think any of them are GOING to, but they could. Some of them are emotionally disturbed, some have asperger's or autism, some seem depressed and some just seem like sociopaths.
