What is scary about this story is the mother knew her son was mentally ill and waited until he was a legal adult to try and commit him. She made it harder on herself because it would take longer than if he was a minor. Apparently the decision to commit Adam Lanza made him angry therefore the police are speculating that this is his motive. Plus his mother volunteered at the school to work with the kindergarteners so there is his connection to the school according to Huffington Post. The son had always felt the mother cared more for the kids than for him. It is a tragedy I feel on both sides there are no winners in this situation.
