Someone said :
Is that entirely true? I know of several people with other forms of Autism that can be quite violent. I know my own brother has had his moments.
In my view, it is quite worrying that someone who seems to be quite a vulnerable individual has been taken into custody. I don't know how I would feel if he was convicted.
Penny I was at the meeting. Did I seem violent to you?
People should not confuse polar opposites on the autism spectrum. ADHD is hyperactivity. Asperger if anything is the exact opposite: introversion. So if he has Asperger I would say it has nothing to do with this case.
An Asperger sufferer is quiet and not prone to spontaneous behaviour. It is NOT full blown autism. RTE referred to this man as "autistic".
The Irish media are known for jumping to conclusions, as the Roma children case shows.
