    This is so sad for boy and mum and dangerous but it also might be a start to a clue about criminally violent behavior and how some can't help themselves. Only a handful have been diagnosed and it was only discovered in the last few years.

    Notice how Mrs. Blakely (where is Mr. Blakely, does he have any thoughts and does he even exist?) is the only person quoted in this article?

    Guess the DailyMail couldn't find even ONE professional to comment publically on the story.

    And....

    The article is sarcasm. No doctors or other experts are quoted.

    Extreme sarcasm. If tests were done to diagnose a "chromosome defect" the labs/universities that did the test would be mentioned.

    The "warrior gene" is far more well known and yeah it is associated with violent behavior.

    It sounds like a new diagnoses and most experts are hesitant to give an opinion until they have done substantial research. I'm glad to hear some other diagnoses other than video games and tv. Children have been violent long before there even was tv and video games. Just look at what the bible says what happened to Cane and Able.

    The article isn't sarcasm. It's an interview with a mother. :twocents:
    There has only been a handful of kids with many different conditions.
    That doesn't mean they don't exist, it means they are very rare. :twocents:

    I wonder if this could be linked to mental illness and/or personality disorders.
