    become noticeable, Gooserock, but a friend or neighbor (I dont remember which) reported to CNN that he was "autistic." I don't think of autism as being the source of violent acting out, but I'm not very familiar with it so I can't say.

    There is such a thing as childhood schizophrenia. I think it's usually quite severe. I'm certainly not a psychology pro, but  I read a fascinating article in the Harvard Mental Health Newsletter several years while working part time in the office of a friend who's a neuropsych. The article reported on the results of an experiment in which lay people were shown home movies of families in which one child was much later diagnosed with schizophrenia. Although profeessionals are reluctant to diagnose schizophrenia at a young age, the lay viewers were very reliably able to identify the child who would later by diagnosed with schizophrenia. Hmmm.
