Rodger was being treated by multiple therapists and was a student at Santa Barbara City College, said family lawyer Alan Schifman.
Schifman said in recent weeks that Rodger’s parents were concerned for their son's well being and reported his disturbing YouTube videos to police, which lead to an investigation. According to Schifman, police interviewed Rodger and found him to be “polite and kind.” He did not specify which law enforcement division conducted the interview.
A social worker also contacted police about Rodger last week, said Schifman.
Schifman said Rodger was diagnosed as being a high-functioning patient with Asperger syndrome and had trouble making friends.It bears repeating: there is no link between violence and any form of autism -- except to the extent that autistic people are often crime victims.
