Re: Fort Hood Shooting

Some girl on Twitter or whatever this Social Media app is, claimed to be the Fort Hood shooter and is now getting one hell of an ass-whooping from society about it.



Some people found out where she lives, where she goes to school, and all her personal information out there. There's one thing you don't do when it comes to shit like this; act extremely insensitive and especially don't try to take credit for it for attention sake.

Watching a live press conference now.
PTSD is not a flucking excuse for criminal behavior, PTSD doesn't cause you to go and become a mass murderer, there were obviously other underlining issues with these individuals. No self respecting and mentally competent veteran, reservist, guard, or active duty soldier would commit such haneous acts against another brother in uniform. PTSD doesn't mean that person is going to go apeshit and kill someone, the media loves to twist things and blow them out of preportion

tl;dr: PTSD is not a cop out for violent or criminal behavior, the media twists people's belief about what ptsd is

Re: Fort Hood Shooting

But he was being evaluated for PTSD and other mental health issues...You're not a psychiatrist and you do not know how these illnesses can manifest themselves in different people....Settle down.

sorry for seeming harsh, but i become irritated when the media tries to portray PTSD as something that turns you into a homicidial manic, when its not.

Re: Fort Hood Shooting

Why does it seem like whenever there is a mass shooting, there is always a second unconfirmed shooter? And then they find out it was just the one shooter?

Also, aren't the soldiers at Fort Hood trained to use guns? So why don't we let them arm themselves so they can defend themselves from situations like this?

Not every soldier is as effecient with a firearm, not every soldier is infantry either, not to mention the fact that there ARE non-military personnel on base, such as dependants (spouses and kids)

And last, you run the risk of accidental discharges, and friendly fire incidents, which happen WAY more often than the public believes, its a subject the military tries to sweep under the rug.

Tl;dr the risk of arming soldiers on base and having friendly fire or accidental discharges is too high, and military police (who are armed) do exsist on almost every major Army base.

I see. I guess accidents will unfortunately always happen. It's just so crazy that this base has been attacked twice now. I read the last time that they are not allowed to have guns on the base which just seemed odd to me.

I forgot to mention, that in the chaos of an active shooting event, information is lost or misunderstood, which can lead to reports of multiple shooters, when in fact there could only be 1. Its hard to communicate and give detailed reports (as a witness or bystander) 100% accurately admist such clusterfuck of activity during a shooting, (i.e people running left and right, running away from the shooter, being shot at, worrying about friends or co workers, etc)
