Bwoy, mi really sorry for him.The hell of Iraq and the vicious murder of his mother apparently pushed him over the edge.Now he is facing a real hell in terms of criminal charges and possibly a protracted period in US federal prison.

It is sad esteban, he like many returning military members did not get the proper help for post traumatic stress syndrome.

You can't keep seeing images of war and not go crazy.
