Sorry, but I am one of those puzzled by this reaction. This guy made choices, and no one stiffed him out of anything."Bronstein also catalogs what the Shooter lacks: pension (he left service 36 months short of the necessary 20 years)"Most folks don't have a pension at all these days, but when you leave early, you know that up front."healthcare (though he battles arthritis, eye damage, tendonitis, and blown disks)"Why does he not have healthcare?"...protection for his family (from a retaliatory attack)..."I do like the witness protection idea in extreme cases like this."...disability benefits (he's waiting)..."Is he disabled? Why no benefits? If entitled, he should have them."...a healthy marriage (he and his wife have split, under the pressure of a job that took him away as many as 300 days a year)..."Ridiculous. When half of all marriages fail, how does anyone and blame this particular job - that he chose, btw. Makes no sense. "And as the Center for Investigative Reporting's executive director explains in an editor's note, while the Shooter faces "exceptional" issues upon his re-entry to society, they're "similar to those many veterans face when leaving the service."I have to agree. Because of where he was and what he did, he is exceptional. But many vets have very similar situations. Tough job, lousy pay, good benefits. Voluntary.
