    Look when you kill people that are" not" trying to kill you what do you expect you deserve.

    You can not go on a rampage and kill people in cold blood and his mental state...well I'm sorry he could have gone to someone and asked for help, stayed in his bunk, refused to go on duty...not an excuse. He had options.

    His mental health seems to have been affected from too much time at war. Did he even know where he was and what he was doing? Life in prison, psychiatric help.

    I am against the death penalty on moral grounds. He should, however, face life in prison. The last thing we need is to have him found not guilty by reason of insanity. That will never fly with the Afghans and we will feel their wrath at some point.

    Such cold blooded murder is unacceptable, PTSD or not. It would be one thing if it were only one person, but several innocents were killed, and he should not go unpunished. If not the death penalty, toss him into a mental institution for life.

    the only way he doesn't get it is if they can prove he is mentally unstable.

    I wish this question had "OTHER" as an option. Perhaps the dimwitted people who send soldiers to 4 war zones in an 8 to 12 year period should be facing firing squads. You can put the politicians and greedy weapons manufacturers in that same firing squad. These people get even richer by hurting other people and their families.

    While I support the DEATH PENALTY (no one executed has re-offended) I don't have sufficient DATA to have a solid opinion. But I will say, that BASED ON WHAT I'VE HEARD SO FAR it leads me to believe he IS mentally compromised due to: 1) strains of being DEPLOYED MULTIPLE TIMES, 2) SUSTAINING A HEAD INJURY IN IRAQ 3)being away from his family and their going through financial difficulties that resulted in them PUTTING THEIR HOUSE UP FOR SALE

    Anyone of of us in the same situation would be facing the death penalty. Thuis doesn't mean he should necessarily get sentenced to death. It is a horrible situation all the way around. The UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice) allows for the death penalty and if any one of us were serving under the same circumstances then we would have to face up to what we had done in a court martial.

    It doesn't take Sigmund Freud to realize that this man suffered a horrible breakdown of some type. Some people have the mental and physical constitution for repeated combat situations and some just can't maintain. It's a tragic situation but killing him won't make it better and it would just make things that much worse for his family. My great uncle came back from WWII, was fine for a few years and then started having flashbacks and committed suicide. Another relative came back from Vietnam and had similar experiences and ended up on disability.

    You obviously have a heart and compassion for abused soldiers. War is usually an abuse by the rich to further enrich themselves at other people's expense. The profiteers don't care about the pain, suffering and deaths they cause.

    If he's guilty, then he should either get life locked away or the death penalty.

    I have heard a lot of people say "What he did is ok because they do this stuff to us all the time." Even though that's true, we are the USA and we are NOT terrorists. You don't just go and kill innocent people and not get punished for it.

    As an individual the only moral way for me to have killed this man was if it were necessary in order to stop him from doing the harm he did in the first place. If I were to kill him after the fact I would be considered a vengeful murderer and the fact that a court might sanction it and that a million+ individuals might want to kill him now does not change the fact that it is morally vile and reprehensible act of collective mob murder.

    You've got to be kidding.
    For starters, they pinned the shootings on a single soldier, despite witnesses reporting several soldiers participating.
    Secondly, they're making it out as if the soldier snapped under the pressure of battle fatigue or some such thing, and was therefore not fully responsible for his actions.
    Finally, the case echos on a much smaller scale the actions of William Calley in the My Lai Massacre, who despite being convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment, still had the support of many Americans, and was ultimately pardoned and set free.
    This soldier will be held for a while, given psych therapy, then sent on his merry way.

    then in his court martial he will explain if he was even in the area when the shootings hapened. then if he accepts responsibility for his actions he he will name all those that took part in the killings.

    He should be returned to the Afghans to face their justice. How his what he did to them any different then what the hijackers did to us on 911? Remember the hijackers were NOT from Afghanistan. We have no right to be illegally occupying their country.

    No, this man shouldnt have been sent over there. The army needs to rethink their policies instead of numbers of men they need to replace others coming back, and that is what it is all about is body count. No man diagnosed with PTSD or TBI should be sent back over there.
