Erin Burnett interview with Liza Long about her blog post "I am Adam Lanza's Mother"

In the hours after 20-year-old Adam Lanza went on a killing spree in Newtown, Connecticut – first killing his mother in her home, then forcing his way into Sandy Hook elementary school, killing 26 people  including 20 children and finally taking his own life – a Boise, Idaho mother called on the nation to to talk about mental illness.

Liza Long wrote about her 13-year-old son, who she says is a nice kid most of the time, and a lover of Harry Potter and stuffed animals. She said  her son has an IQ that is off the charts, but there are times that he lashes out – threatening to kill her and take his own life.

In an interview with Erin Burnett, Long said "I have a sick child...the blog was a cry for help."
