This is not a dupe.
Personally, I think they should give him a medal. Less nuts to deal with later.
After reading the article, one thing stands out. The shooter had an attorney in mind when he turned himself in. That means he was thinking clearly enough to consider his options.
Until the whole story comes out, if it ever does, I am not going to pass judgement.
We have a fair amount of people here that leap over the mental edge and commit horrible crimes.
I doubt the man will ever walk a free step again in his life, whatever the case.
If you are correct then he was thinking clearly at that time.
That also leaves him open for premeditation, which seriously ups the ante to 1st degree homicide. I'm not saying that I think He's guilty or innocent here, I'm just laying out the legal possibilities.
And you got your degree in treatment of PTSD-and/or Traumatic brain injury where? To my knowledge the god gene has not been proven to allow the ability to read ones mind -unless one is a fictional character like those dreamed up by Marvel Comics.In short we so disagree with your assessment of the situation.
For murdering unarmed civilians?
Are you nuts?
I just see potential killers, as all muslims are.
