Mentally ill and still had access to a weapon? This country has an over abundance of "sickos"; many being treated by psychiatrists. Psychiatrists almost always feel 'they are making progress' with the sick individual.
My heart goes out to the victims and all relatives and others affected.by a mis-diagnosed killer. Little satisfaction that he killed himself. Too bad the other sick Ft. Hood terrorist didn't kill himself or get killed. Our overt compassion keeps this killer expensively alive. Too bad.
I have a small connection to Ft. Hood. When I was a sales manager in Dallas, we covered Ft.Hood and I had an opportunity to visit the base.
