    This is a collective **** up, by the mother and the cops.

    I was actually responding to the smart ass.

    I will tell you this though: if you think it's a good idea to flash that knife, you'd best be prepared to use it. Don't ask me how I know.

    Good luck! Most do not see the knife to begin with, and thinking just being punched multiple times until they see blood

    I've never been in a knife fight, never been in a gun fight either, but I think I would rather be in a knife fight with a gun than a gun fight with a knife.

    I wasn't at the home, but from the article, this was no small disturbed child, but a grown man with a history of violence who had already demonstrated his willingness to use his knife with deadly force. Seems to me that the outcome was a given.

    I would assume a great deal of his anxiety and problems stemmed from compulsory "education". Maybe if the system were more accommodating towards individuality, he would have had less reason to lash out at authority figures like his mother and the police.

    Of course, I'm speculating, but given the nature of the complaint (didn't want to go to school) and his condition (Asperger's), I think it's a pretty reasonable assumption to make.

    I treat lots of folks with Aspergers. There is wide variation in behaviors... some can get quite angry, but most are pretty passive due to their social deficits, often resulting in social anxiety. Personal slights, perceived or real, are taken VERY seriously by the individual. However, my guess would be that, in the case of the young man in the story, there was more going on than just Aspergers. Regardless, under the circumstances, the cops acted appropriately.

    We used to call those kids shy, now it's a "problem" with pills to solve.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
