    Brutal-the Killer of 16 is from a nearby Town

    "Bobby" Bales was from Norwood, Ohio, a city entirely surrounded by Cincinnati. A blue collar town that once thrived until the big auto manufacturing plant closed a couple decades ago.

    ABC local news (Channel 9, WCPO) reporting it now

    Truly sorry this happened. How long can we, as a country, keep sending the soldiers back into the same situation, without one of them losing it. Sad situation.

    Sad to hear that. Why was this town not incorporated into Cincinnati as is the usual custom in most metropolitan areas?

    Even more difficult to understand is the respective voting records of many of the folks in congress. The list includes many you would think would be supportive of Veteran's issues, like John McCain. Unconscionable to me.

    That's a good question that I don't have an answer for. It was a thriving community until the big auto plant went bye bye. There are lots of small communities that border Cincinnati-St Bernard, Fairfax, Newtown, Amberly Village, Golf Manor, Lockland, etc but I believe Norwood is the only one surrounded completely. It was an auto town where for years men would graduate from Norwood, maybe do some college or serve and then go work in the auto plant. Sadly the design was "obsolete" . Norwood has sent a lot of guys to the volunteer army--one of the guys who moonlighted in a friend's gun shop was in the special forces and was part of the "nonexistent" Delta Force who was part of the "Black Hawk Down" nastiness

    ...And now this "innocent child murdering" nastiness. It's a shame for the community...
    Don't work out, work in.

    This guy will either spend the rest of his life in prison, or he will be executed. If he is executed, fingers from across the pond will waggle in disapproval as well.

    Nobody has justified what this man did, not even the man himself. To that point, he was a brilliant, well-respected and highly-decorated soldier, serving honorably for 11 years. He suffered multiple injuries over the course of his four deployments, and his extended absence caused his family severe financial problems. The man snapped. For some reason, a few hours after seeing a buddy's leg blown off before his eyes, this sergeant experienced some kind of acute mental breakdown and committed a horrific mass murder of innocent civilians.

    If y'all can't allow us to discuss how these decades' old wars are affecting our soldiers without characteristic British snideness so frequently directed at us and our military, then at least be respectful enough to say nothing at all.
