    This mans death was more likely unintentional and both suffering war wounds the public and was more understanding of the horrors our veterans went through in Vietnam and prior and no amount of time can cure some soldiers actions in time of war. Isolation in prisons compounds PTSD and shell shock and people go insane when haunted by it as they try to forget.

    Even today these veterans of war are cast aside and disgraced by our government and won't treat them claiming they all had PTSD (shell shocked) as a preexisting condition before they put their lives in harms way so we can sit here and wonder why these lost souls are out there.

    Animal cruelty laws say we can't turn unwanted pets loose but we cast out our veteran soldiers with no thought at all of their suffering. The public and law enforcement consider homeless veterans a nuisance and assume our government is helping veterans.

    Veterans who suffer the stresses and indignities of war and watching and killing fellow man are traumatic events they keep inside and leave their families and homes because they can't assimilate back into safety and security of mind.
