ARLINGTON, Wash. (AP) - A sniper killed in a shootout with police about 50 miles north of Seattle was described Wednesday as a disabled military veteran who was recently divorced and had mental health problems.
"He was bipolar and taking medications" not a good combo to deal with. if you ever had to deal with someone that is bipolar it is hardRead more: Wash. sniper was recently divorced military vet - Dallas News | myFOXdfw.comIt apparently began when a man in his 20s was shot in his calf in his driveway. The man heard gunfire, sent his family inside the house for safety and was struck by a bullet minutes later, Ireton said. The man, whose name was not disclosed, was treated at an Arlington hospital and released.
My wife is bipolar and doesnt take meds, shes got me to keep her in check. So the terms "psycho" and"madman" dont really apply to all people diagnosed with it now do they? Paranoid schizophrenics are a completely different type of people. They cant distinguish reality from fantasy and take action out of fear. Now i do understand that every case is different, but i can see this being caused by PTSD and the man not knowing whether he is home or not.
Precious few details. About the only facts are: someone was shot once; a passing car was shot several times; responding officers took down the apparent shooter; and the apparent shooter has medical/drug factors, a recent divorce and military training history. No comment on whether there was an altercation, prior history, or whatever. The implication dangling there is that he blew a gasket.
His entire post contradicts. I dont believe he really knows wht hes talking about.

OK... try bi-polar (undiagnosed), PTSD, recently discharged vet facing tough employment market... This is what we as a society will be facing for the next 15-20 years. If Vietnam vets were emotionally troubled and prone to substance abuse, just imagine current young men and women after now 10 years of war with multiple deployments...
I love vets, because I am one, but due to no fault of these vets, we may look forward to frequent episodes of snipers, mass shooters, etc... Point is, we need to take care of them... be a good neighbor and help them out when you can: hire them at your business, give them a referral when they look for a job, help them find a job, befriend them, talk with them, LISTEN to them..
Bipolar ; can get bad enough to have a psychotic episodes and halluncinations, but that is not common at all.
Schizophrenics ; are unpredictable.... depends upon type, degree, and meds.
Psyhopaths.... are the one's you need to worry about the most. They are the one's who will seem normal, are intelligent, and will kill you then go eat lunch and never think another thing about it..... then in the news it will say, 'such a nice guy'.... because they know how to act normal and play the game. And, they know what they are doing.
