Asperger’s and pain, Newtown, CT

I read an article the other day about how the shooter from Newtown has Asperger Syndrome and he could not feel pain.  This could not be further from the truth, students with Asperger’s can feel pain, just like you and I.  I often compare Asperger’s to a very mild case of Autism, were the students are usually very functional able, but sometimes lack discipline in the classroom, but this does not mean they cannot feel pain.  It makes you wonder about the people that are writing these stories and if I had Asperger’s I would be highly insulted by this article.
