As a parent of a child with Asperger's every time I see an incident like this I prepare for the eventual lack of knowledge on the part of the media to separate the actions of a lunatic with the behavior of kids on the Autism Spectrum Disorder scale. It's the automtic assumption (just like has happened) that the kid is anti-social so he must have ASD and thus we must fear all kids who are like that.
Yes. There is no nuance in our ability to discuss mental issues in this country.

I will now quote from someone on Twitter (ignore, or delight, in that this person I'm quoting is named DongLord69):

RT @donglord69: My mental health care experience, age 12: "I'm sad because my mom died." "BIPOLAR!" "No. Dead mom." "OCD!" "Can I talk?" "JUST TRY PILLS!"

RT @donglord69: It took me about a year to find treatment for depression and anxiety. In NYC. I am a white lady with health insurance. **** everything.
