I can see what you are trying to get at, but it is somehow more comforting to me to be able to identify that a person is "troubled" in an incident like this than to find that it is simply the act of a cold-hearted individual.   Of course, I do believe that anyone who is capable of calloused, cold hearted criminal behavior does have a mental health problem.  Certainly healthy people could not perpetrate the kind of painful acts we see.  That, of course, does not mean that every person who has mental health is going to be criminal.   Nor does it mean that every criminal behavior can and/or should be blamed on mental illness.  The case you cited on autism sounds like it might be another example of trying to escape personal responsibility.
