What did Muslim have to do with it again?

among the 1.4 million active duty U.S. military service members, mental disorders were the leading cause of
hospitalization for men and the second leading cause for women (second only to pregnancy-related
admissions). Six to ten percent of U.S. military personnel were documented to receive outpatient treatment
for a mental disorder each year (1,2). Over 25% of service members who received outpatient care for mental
health problems left military service within six months, a rate that is more than two times higher than the rate
of attrition following treatment for any other ICD-9 illness category (1).

  • You know when someone yells out, "Allah Akbar"; "God is Great", "Thank You Jesus", whatever!!! then I very well have the right to even speculate~ t



    If the man had yelled God is great in ENGLISH before shooting up the place  and his last name was SMITH there would be no mention of his religion and everyone knows that whether they are willing to admit it or not.


    There is no excuse for what he did, and there is also no excuse for bigotry.

  • It's not like you hear this:


    "Catholic Man goes on shooting rampage at local McDonalds" or


    "Luthern Girl gets in a fight with Methodist Girl at local playground"


    Every class, every race, every religion, every human being on this earth has issues.

  • And what does combat stress have to do with a man who never once deployed to a combat zone, or anywhere else for that matter?

  • THANK YOU BLUE COLLAR MAMA ... this guy went nuts because he was going to be deployed.... He'd of sat in an office on a FOB never having to go into battle ! he'd of been very safe over there. But he went nuts and killed soldiers on the homefront...

    Who knows if it's cuz he's muslim... but I bet this is the same poster as "I'm muslim have a problem with that "!!!! No sure don't but still think you're posting questions in ignorance rather then an intelligent manner.

  • I thought he was about to be deployed again?  I also thought that he was a little fed up being given a difficult time because he happened to be Muslim.  We may never know as we aren't in his "shoes" or "head"....don't know what he was thinking or where his life has taken him.

    40 hours a week for the past 10 years he's listened to traumatized soldiers share the most gruesome details of war, the ones they won't even share with their wives to spare them the horror. You think someone can listen to that for 20,000 hours and not be impacted by it? If he could, he would truly be a sociopath.

    Unless you're on the jury, it's nobody's job to prove you wrong. It's not your call to make.
