On Tuesday, attorneys for Albert Gonzalez filed a report from a forensic psychologist that questioned the criminal hacker's "capacity to knowingly evaluate the wrongfulness of his actions and consciously behave lawfully and avoid crime," according to federal prosecutors. The report went on to state that his "behavior was consistent with description of the Asperger's disorder."
Given today's society (okay, this may be slightly different in the states, but still), this could very likely lead to government seeing people with autism/aspergers as being a threat to law and order if their "capacity to knowingly evaluate the wrongfulness of [their] actions and consciously behave lawfully and avoid crime" is impaired.
And what do you think will happen then? Aspie/autists being sectioned or imprisoned 'for the greater good'?
This is dangerous ground.
