You'd obviously be wrong. I'm not defending anyone, just pointing out the hypocrisy in considering mitigating circumstances only when convenient.

If you take him at his word, then he should definitely be considered a criminal. His claim of shooting 30 in New Orleans certainly qualifies. But that's really irrelevant, because your new litmus test doesn't allow for circumstance. Only whether or not ... more »

So as long as the shooter believed Kyle and the other man were criminals, then that'd make his actions justifiable?

Using your new found rationale, their killers either killed them (and therefore should have been found guilty and been put to death themselves) or they were innocent. Suddenly you seem to have taken on a completely different philosophy......

That's an interesting position given your defense of people who've killed others........

That's certainly possible. Hard to say given the limited amount of information. Heck, he may have been gang raped for all we know, or maybe something a lot less "traumatic" to you or I, and just processed it entirely differently than most people would. ... more »

Well the obvious answer is to suffer a trauma that imprints so deeply that it affects you to a great deal. PTSD isn't solely related to combat. My youngest daughter was diagnosed with it due to some of the things that occurred to her before we adopted ... more »

I haven't followed the trial or the case in general all that much, but saw the jury being interviewed on one of the morning news programs. One thing sort of stood out that was a little surprising. When asked if any of them had seen the movie American ... more »

They published an official schedule with Trindade on it, also, so any "assurance" is far short of a guarantee. Not that I believe that a second US round will occur, but I wouldn't bet the farm on any "assurances" by Luongo. It's interesting that one ... more »

The only true "cancellation" due to finances/contract dispute that comes to mind is the fiasco involving Glen Helen being cancelled about a month before the scheduled date. Other than that, I don't remember a cancellation after the schedule had been ... more »

Perhaps the concepts involved are a bit too much for you. What you see as proving itself wrong is anything but. It's refining knowledge, nothing more. The issues you reference in your second paragraph alone show your general lack of understanding concerning ... more »
