Unbelieveable! (Hi, Kristinn.)
The man suspected in the shooting deaths of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield was previously taken into custody and placed in a psychiatric hospital after a 2012 incident in which he threatened to kill himself and his family, read a Lancaster police report.
According to the affidavit, Eddie Routh, 25, was transported to Green Oaks Psychiatric Hospital for a mental evaluation on September 2, 2012.
On that day, Jodi Routh, Eddie's mother, called police out to her residence in the 200 block of W. Sixth St. in Lancaster. She told police her son became argumentative and threatened to "blow his brains out" after his father said he was going to sell his gun.
Did you hear about Ron Paul’s tweet “He who lives by the sword dies by the sword”
Doesn’t sound like he got much of a deal.
Odd why not just car jack someone you did not know
and a Navy Seal at that. Maybe he gave the response he was told to give.
Uh huh. Sure. For a truck.
This is starting to look a little fishy, and that’s compared to how fishy it looked at first. “I traded my soul for a truck”? Who talks like that? Who thinks about committing double murder and getting to keep the guy’s truck as spoils of war?
What could possibly go wrong?
A completely brain-dead motive.
It may be a good thing that Chris Kyle took Routh to a gun range as most people there are armed which prevented a scenario where there could have been a mass shooting where dozens could have been killed.
They’re going to find him insane, he’ll be put in a mental institution but not on a gurney for the needle.
Something about all this just does not sound right.Chris Kyle was a very saavy man, and if Routh was so dysfunctional that he was having impulsive episodes of post traumatic stress, Kyle would have likely known of it.
Routh murdered two men and then proceeded to act rationally, stealing a truck, running from having done what he knew was wrong. If he was so debilitated or hallucinating, he would have collapsed in emotional distress and shot himslef or injured himself.Some things just do not fit.
This has elements of a planned hit, accomplished with some kind of rationality. We do not know what the motive could be, but there are a surprising number of highly effective leaders in the conservative/libertarian field who have been joining the Obama dead pool, from Bloomberg on. Id say that NRA president Wayne LaPierre has something to worry about.
IS Routh being paid to do the dirty and cop an insanity plea? A lot of Islamofascists wanted Chris dead.This is not
a business-as-usual murder. Should we ask the Mossad? LOL.
Rumor has it that there will be or is a bill in Congress to mandate that every state report all mental health information to the NCIC. Interesting approach.
Well, people are killed for less; Air Jordan’s, team jackets, warmup suits, $35 from a convenience store register, etc, etc, etc.
