Yep....I would put her in the "certifiable nut" category.

I would say the kid's autism had little to do with what she did.

The pathology is squarely within HER.

The OP cited a source I'm not familiar with, but here's an ABC news and a Newsweek article saying the same thing:

Thanks you Ezra :)

I can't help laughing at the defence lawyer and the mother's statements

I don't even see how her being an "autism mom" factors into this. Her kid is clearly very high-functioning, and she attacked him just because he put a video game on after school. It's not like he's smearing feces on the wall and screaming 24/7. Which still wouldn't excuse what she did, but at least the stress level would be understandable. This lady's just a nut grasping at straws to explain herself.


yeah but nut = mental illness

Anybody who seeks to decapitate a kid over playing a video game = A certifiable nut

yes and certifiable nut = mental illness

It doesn't absolve the crime but this seems like a one-off

Mentally ill -- Not necessarily legally insane.

Hopefully, she'll pay some sort of penalty for this. Her mental illness does not excuse what she did. She is fully culpable for her crime, in my opinion.

My point is that this case is being used to illustrate how uncaring NT parents are...I was trying to point out that this is a one off due to the lady's serious mental instability

Oh, I agree. I think this mom would have flipped out, regardless. It's probably her lawyer that's pushing the autism angle.

Was the husband more concerned about his STUPID wife than his kids? If he was then he Stupid too. Children comes first then come your wife or husband.
