    I dont get it either. Right or wrong I can see why some people kill another person but this opening fire on random ppl makes no sense at all to me. Especially in the military.

    The 1 that did it was 34 and in the army. Now it says he killed 3 and himself. I dont know any more then that but it aint right when a guy wearing your uniform turns on you like that.

    Just saw this on the news. What a sad day. They said he was being threaded for mental issues from being deployed.

    The really sad thing (in addition to the dead and injured) is that this was probably preventable. We have a broken system when it comes to background checks. He bought the handgun recently off post. As soon as he started the evaluation process and treatment for depression and possible brain injury, the Army should have notified the FBI (who does the background checks) to indicate his situation and keep him from passing the background check as he obviously lied on the background form he filled out.

    A really sad deal for sure.

    Sad deal, just dont understand why people do this. Wish they would seek out help before even thinking of doing such a thing.
