I would not have thought of autism upon seeing those videos. Maybe he was just so introverted that the label of autism came up, or the reporter suggested the word. And we don't know what kind of parents his mother and father were. I do wonder about molestation. Not to excuse this act, of course. Why was this kid allowed to stay in college? His profs should have kicked him out. His "plays" are nothing but pre-adolescent dirty words, like a kid who has just discovered the "f" word and has to use it every other sentence. They read as though he thinks writing down the word "sh1t" means he's writing literature. And English departments actually REVIEW this crap?? Never mind, I've seen books that aren't far from this, in print and sold in the bookstore. We've descended pretty far, haven't we?? When people are afraid to offend someone who is clearly WAY out of bounds, we will continue to have this sort of thing happen. Cho's writing, when read in class, gave his classmates a glimpse into something they saw as disturbing. "When we read Cho's plays, it was like something out of a nightmare... The plays had really twisted, macabre violence... When the students gave reviews of his play in class, we were very careful with our words in case he decided to snap."
