Alex Plank at CNN.com: Leave autism out of mass shootings

Posted Dec 22 2012 1:43pm

Alex Plank of wrong planet.com and Autism Rights Watch has an opinion piece at CNN.com: Leave autism out of mass shootings . The article begins:

(CNN) — After the horrific shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, a parade of self-appointed experts tried to insinuate that people with autism are prone to inexplicable acts of violence because they lack the ability for empathy and social connection. This is because the shooter, Adam Lanza, had been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism.

These speculations are needless, untrue and hurtful.

The full article, and over sixty comments so far, can be found at Leave autism out of mass shootings .
