An open question with regard to the Dallas sniper has to do with his motivation.
IMO we need to know how this man who is variously described as having been; goofy, a clown, interested mainly in his Engineer Corps duties as a carpenter and mason in an Engineer Corps Army Reserve construction unit became an enraged Black nationalist who "hated white people."
How did that happen? This is not the usual trajectory of development for Army Reserve or National Guard soldiers. These part timers normally become quite attached to and indeed rather maudlin about their units and comrades.
So, what happened? The idiot MSM does not seen interested in this. They prefer to go weepy and wet over the funerals instead of finding out WHY this man went bad. Their reaction is just about as brainless about this as was their fascination with the hunt for the particular "guilty alligator" at the Disney resort in Florida. Apparently any shiny object can hold their attention. Ben Rhodes is right. They are ignorant, uneducated and easily led.
My own theory of the case is that there was something wrong about the way an accusation of sexual harassment was made about him in Afghanistan and then the way some officer or officers handled the case.
IMO it is quite possible that an ambitious officer or officers covered his/their ass by dropping the hammer on this guy.
That would do it. pl
