Joined the Army after a Florida investment job went sour, had home condemned, failed to make payments on another and lost out on a promotion
It looks like all the pieces are falling into place with this guy. The Army is recruiting people like this to fight in a foreign country?
Now we hear that he assaulted his girlfriend and was involved in a hit and run accident where he ran off into the woods with blood stains on his clothes?
Former platoon leader said Saturday Bales was a model soldier inspired by 9/11
Reports are coming in that Bales was up for a promotion to some exotic location like Hawaii but ended up getting redeployed to Afghanistan. Apparently his wife was upset at this news.
Hoped to go to either Germany, Italy or Hawaii for an “adventure,” she said
So his wife was driving him crazy?
But these are the people who finally crack and have a meltdown. Look at all similar cases like this one.
The person seems all happy go lucky and then snaps like a stick of dynamite.
Apparently right before the shooting, his wife told him to put their house up on the market because she was behind on the payments. So he saw himself as a failure and decided to act out?
Lawyers says Bales may have been suffering post traumatic stress disorder
