    First, I'm not "you people." Second, and because you apparently missed the "and," I did separate one independent idea from the other. The "and" meant "in addition to Asperger's." Can I clear up anything else for you?

    I still want to know what kind of drugs this kid was on, apparently it's top secret.

    GARBAGE. That's what it is. This is pure conjecture. Any or every fact in this article may be correct but there is no proof of what went on in this guy's head and there is nothing anywhere that explains why a human being would kill 20 completely innocent children. Every time a tragedy happens, we look for an answer because it excuses us - it tells us there is no underlying societal problem that is in desperate need of fixing.

    Anybody who wants is free to take the easy answers. I'll take the truth.
    Obviously, you do not read very well at all.
    Your preconceived solution has blinded you from looking at all of the components of the situation.
    You would do yourself well to relax and use common sense.

    I agree linear thinking.

    The truth is we will never be able to prevent ALL mass murders, even if we made America a complete police state.

    We could do a lot better though, with some serious reform to our mental health system, and improvements to our school security.

    I am not a conservative, I am a centrist. I am in favor of raising taxes with certain stipulations, primarily because of our massive deficit spending.
