The country’s largest veterans home was invaded by a gunman, who took three women hostage and engaged in a shootout with police. He and the three hostages were killed. The facility, which houses veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, was locked down. Despite that, four people died. The hostages were employees and no one knows the gunman’s motives.
I just read that in the paper. There was also a shooting of some kind in Alabama, but I don’t have as much information about that. I’m sure there were more killings, too. It just goes on and on.
Is this how we honor and care for our veterans? Men and women with injuries and probable PTSD? And this took place in a pretty liberal state: California. It’s a fucking massacre, state by state.
