Asperger Syndrome has the same classification as autism, at least here in Brazil it's more regarded as a behavior issue than an illness itself. On Wikipedia there's a good explanation:
"Some researchers have argued that AS can be viewed as a different cognitive style, not a disorder or a disability, and that it should be removed from the standard Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, much as homosexuality was removed."

This may not fit (not American), but I don't think we need depression fuel to fill the entire General Topics thread list.

Justin Bourque of Moncton (New Brunswick, Canada) is currently still on the loose after opening fire on RCMP. He has injured 5 officers, killing 3.

A manhunt is underway in Moncton, New Brunswick after three Mounties were killed by a shooter Wednesday evening.

Codiac RCMP also confirm two additional officers were shot and have "non-life threatening" injuries. They are currently in stable condition at the Moncton Hospital, which is under lockdown.

Justin Bourque, 24, has been identified as the suspected shooter. He remains at-large and is considered armed and dangerous.

Bourque, wearing army camouflage, was reportedly spotted carrying multiple weapons including high-powered rifles, a crossbow, and knife.

Not a mass shooting...but I think it deserves mention.

Nine African-Americans were killed Wednesday night at a historic church in Charleston, South Carolina.

The suspect in custody is a known white supremacist, and it looks like a racially-motivated assault.

May God grant the dead parishioners entry into Raspberry Heaven, and may God forgive the young fool who apparently committed the murders.

Huffington Post article

Daily Beast article on the suspect

Commentary by Susie Madrak

I intend to post an appropriate song on the STABA thread.

The Church Massacre is definitely the worst shooting in the U.S. since the Sandy Hook elementary shooting. While the shooting is considered to be a hate crime, given the nature of this crime, prosecutors will seek the death penalty for shooter Dylann Roof.

That's a bad idea, he'll become a martyr for racists everywhere. We should just let him rot in prison.

A reporter and cameraman were shot while filming live. The station I believe is based in Virginia.

Two WDBJ7 employees were killed Wednesday morning in an attack at Bridgewater Plaza.

This happened during a live broadcast around 6:45 a.m.

Police are looking for a suspect who apparently opened fire on WDBJ7 photographer Adam Ward and WDBJ7 reporter Alison Parker.

Adam was 27-years-old. Alison just turned 24.
There is footage of it. It's quite strange and an unusual thing to watch. Personally don't recommend watching it...but that's just me.
