"A psychologist told Ryan Cleary, 19, he has Asperger's syndrome following his arrest last week."

That sentence is harder to decipher than 128-bit encryption.

All the evidence I've seen says this kid was a minor participant who hosted an IRC server for him. LulzSec is made up of a group of individuals, a few who have backed out because of the heat they've brought on themselves.

68.94562654% of all kids are diagnosed with aspergers. 95% of which are related to parents who simply don't give a shiat about their kids.

/100% of all kids will have had assburgers at one time or another.

Honest question, I'm really not trolling - does anyone here (no snark) take an Asperger's syndrome diagnosis with a grain of salt, or is it just me?

To be honest, my experience when it comes to 'people with Aspergers' or 'kids with Aspergers' just seem like kids (or overgrown kids) whose parents didn't really discipline them.

You wish.

Just because he's "special" is absolutely NO excuse for his behavior.

My son is starting to try that crap. "I'm autistic so it's ok for me to beat up on my little brother." or "I've got asperger's so I can throw a tantrum like a two year old at the grocery store even though I'm thirteen and the size of a fifteen year old, but it's ok because I can't help it."

BULLshiat!

If you have the presence of mind to claim a disability then you can take a certain amount of responsibility for your actions. If that entails jail time or financial compensation then so be it.

I know a couple folks with diagnosed Aspergers' who clearly really do have it. They struggle with social interaction and basic tact, not because their parents never told them to behave but because they just can't quite grasp the concepts. Those people I feel sorry for, because they're trying to interact normally with the people around them and never quite getting there.

I've also met plenty of kids whose parents say "oh, s/he has Aspergers'," but who don't act awkward and socially inept. They act more like undisciplined little brats. These are usually the same kids whose parents will scream "You can't tell my kid what to do!!!!" if you ask the child to please stop touching/breaking/stealing/climbing on/otherwise abusing things.

It may seem that way until you try and have a conversation with someone diagnosed with Asperger's, then you can really tell something is off

This. When you see aspergers, it becomes clear very early into the interaction with the person that they just don't get it. Its not a spoiled brat entitlement on their part, so much as a disconnect between you and them. Its almost alien.

My nephew has aspergers. There is something defiantly wrong with that kid and it isn't the parents. They noticed by the age of 2 that the kid was not developing right and spent the next few years trying to find out what was going wrong and what they should do about it. That said, I'd be VERY critical of anyone who was diagnosed by someone other than a properly accredited professional.

They are just smart kids who are socially retarded and stay socially retarded if they have parents who don't give a shiat. They get good grades have some trouble in school but that is related to being socially retarded. They are usually given ritalin which helps in the short term but not in helping with relating to others because they don't have ADHD. Giving these kids ritalin help the adults only because they then don't have to deal with the kid.

Well, we are more important than the rest of you placeholders. No offence intended (even though you'll probably be offended regardless). You get to enjoy the typical life which relatively speaking isn't so bad. Love, family, BBQ's, etc.

We are the inventors minds. Tesla, DaVinci, Einstein, Newton, Mozart and the like being in the sweet spot of the spectrum for creative genius.

I invented the internet btw. :)
