Lanza was in the autistic spectrum and was incapable of having many of the grand issues that this psychoblabber proposes he had.
I wonder what role “SW:Revenge of the Sith” had to play.
Don’t they have hours of interviews with these mass killers? (Dahmer, Gacy, Holmes, etc.)
Either the experts are keeping their findings more secret than the Dead Sea Scrolls, or they really don’t know how to pre-diagnose it.
How do you cultivate this in someone born without empathy or awareness?
To say these kind of people need intensive therapy is an understatement. However, I'm not sure they're redeemable; their brains are different. In spite of all the hand wringing over gun control, the real issue is treatment of the mentally ill and detection of the dangerous.
I have known people like that- they have that “Oh yeah? well I’m going to show YOU..” attitute
They are sick and twisted
Hey, we used to have a huge institution to do just that. It was called Religion.
How do you teach compassion to someone who, according to educators who knew him, could feel no physical or emotional pain?
This actually describes somebody else I know of.....
Excessive narcissism with a position of near absolute power, what happens when the “I Won” gets seriously offended?
I’m not a psychiatrist, I just have family who are in the field. However, from what I’ve gleaned over the years through them, this diagnosis seems muddled in regards to his alleged autism.
Autistic individuals can have violent outbursts in some cases, but they can’t have it both ways of him being low functioning autistic as the media tried making it out, and also capable of such planning.
Then again, this could just be the result of pop psychology and the immediate rush to judgement on the MSM’s part.
I’d like to know if mom brought her children to church or enrolled them in religious studies. Anyone know?
I used to know a German (or Austrian) feller named Asberger (true!), and I used to like Mario Lanza. Doesn’t that make me a expert or what?!
This shrinker’s post facto theory and pseudo-medical diagnosis are as good as anybody’s, including posters on this thread with life experience in the area, and I see no reason to diss anyone offering an opinion, but perhaps those who seem so anxious to it (diss) suffer from similar psychological maladies as the Lanza boy.
driven by strong feelings of anger and resentment, in addition to having a paranoid character. He plans out the offense ritualistically, and comes prepared with a powerful arsenal of weapons.
“pseudocommando] most often kills in public during the daytime. And has no escape planned. Pseudocommandos are ‘collectors of injustice’ who nurture their wounded narcissism and ultimately retreat into a fantasy life of violence and revenge.”
Knoll wrote that killers like Lanza have an obliterative mindset “
Damn! You could insert nobama into each graphic description and explain a lot.
This is exactly what I see that went wrong.
This kid needed Bible study or church if ever a kid needed it. He had no line in his mind that he could not cross. I believe he was powerless and scared all his life. He then exploded in a rage, takeing the ultimate power over human life. Killing was rehearsed in this kids mind a 100 times or more. Thou shalt not kill? Maybe he heard that once.
I have yet to hear that this kid was a member of any church.
From day one his brother said he had autism PLUS a personality disorder.
I understand autism is generally not violent
