That's another one added to the growing list of autistic murderers. Goodbye reputation.

I think he had more going on than Autism, maybe psychosis.

Autistics being convicted is a bad thing for us. Even worse is the "autism defense" used to attempt to lighten sentences or to have the defendant found innocent by reason of insanity.

In the article, I saw nothing about an autism defense, and the defendant's autism was briefly mentioned once. If that is representative of the coverage this trial received I do not think any damage was done to the UK autistic community.

Well... I guess besides getting convicted, he didn't win the lottery, either.

I don't condone this for a minute, but if someone is ostracised by society and finds acceptance within an extremist fringe group, they are vulnerable to radicalisation.

Anyone who struggles socially, be it aspies, people with learning disability, people with physical disabilities, short or physicall weak men, "ugly" women or any others in the long list society leaves behind, is fair game for Islamic radicles, the Incel movement, far right Nazi types or the weird cult this man has fallen into. If society want the mass killings to stop, they need to tackle it at it's source.

If an autistic doesn't want to be convicted, don't do a crime. That simple or else they shouldn't be out in public if they are not able to not commit a crime.

Well...the "kill ratio" is still very much in favor of NTs. They whack many times more of us than we them.

So...we still need to murder a lot more for it to even out! But it's a step in the right direction! :D

(just kidding. I apologize for my gallows humor).

Question:

Does anyone here believe a demon was actually summoned?

He didn't seem psychotic.

He didn't hear voices or hallucinations.

He seems to have acted rationally based on an irrational belief.

Atheists probably accuse religious people of doing this.

What about people who pray to a GOD and do service for this GOD , and expect rewards for their service (go to heaven)?

The kid did the same thing.

He prayed to an abstract entity, performed service for this abstract entity, and expected to be rewarded for his service.

Some of the spells were believed to have been to do with making him attractive to women, but police remain largely in the dark about other material. There was also some far-right component to some of the discussions, but investigators have been reluctant to go into detail.
