Police Kill Trans Man with Asperger's

Arizona police on Friday confirmed that the transgender man shot to death by cops on Thursday was Kayden Clarke, a 24-year-old with Asperger's. Clarke was known to many for a viral YouTube video that showed him suffering a breakdown but then being calmed by a dog. The incident on Thursday started when police responded to a suicidal-person call at Clarke's home. Police said that Clarke was armed with a knife and lunged at the responding officers, causing them to open fire.
