    Hold his sorry butt accountable for his actions. Prayers that the officer recovers fully.

    First I will address the brave sister that was the victim of violence: Prayers for a full and speedy recovery to the officer, way to stay in the fight, God Bless.

    seems every freaking call I go on where a person is out of control they are bi-polar, attention deficit disorder or ptsd........tired of it......I to am a vet and a cop, have been through it and never had a blurred view of right and wrong. Throw the book at him!!!!

    Look i have been involved in 3 shootings and it bothered me but i got help and im fine. I didnt go out and try and shoot civilians. I am a veteran and yes there is help out there for them, they need to go and get it. Im tired of hearing this crap of PTSD do we know if he was in any type of action, or was he in the REAR with the Gear.?

    Do not hand me this PTSD crap every time you get into trouble. Yes this does happen but not nearly as much as it is reported. If you look at the mental health reports they look like are telling you everyone that has been in combat or ever had any stress suffers from this and that just is not true. As a Vietnam Vet and a LEO who even drove an ambulance between sering military and LE I have seen some nasty crap in my life and even been directly involved in it. Still I am responsible for my own actions and would not use this as an excuse for abnormal or bad behaviour like some do. Treat the ones that really have this but I call BS on most of these mopes that scream PTSD every time they get caught doing something criminal.

    I shot someone in the line of duty and had acute PTSD and I was having flash backs. I realized something wasn't right. As the therapist told me, if it is not treated then it will get worst and go into major depression too. She just works with PTSD people. It mostly occurs, with military personal, police, nurses, firemen, EMT's, and doctors. She did a series of rapid eye movement and after a series of them, I was back to normal. I don't like the idea this is used as an excuse. Mental health one can be treated and I do believe they know right from wrong at least I did during my case.
    I was assaulted by a mental health person. I was asked to drop my charges. I said no. You didn't see the look I saw in his face and he told mr what he was going to do. I see this has happened before and they were dropped. If you or I did it, we would be fined, ordered to an Anger Management Class or jailed. Or all of the above. It's time a message is sent out to the mental health community enough is enough. The person that assaulted me was fined 159.00 plus court and lawyer cost. He had to set up a payment plain with no help from family or friends. Again these are just my opinion and feelings.

    Gotta agree with tbailes182. PTSD is a real disorder, but there are limits on just what ( and how much )you can blame on it. VA should have been helping him out, no questions asked !!!!!

    Some people may disagree with me and this may be a bit harsh, but I am tired of seeing PTSD used as an excuse for totally unacceptable behavior. Attempting to murder someone, let alone an on duty police officer, just because you have PTSD is beyond anything I can comprehend. PTSD or not, this guy deserves stiff punishment.
