    On air you mentioned at least twice he was a former Navy sailor and was discharged in 2011. What does that have to do with the story? Like saying a former fast food worker who left McDonalds in 2011.

    Dig deeper before you judge because you don’t know the whole story there are pieces missing that aren’t mentioned and how the real person responsible is not even being questioned. We are so quickly to believe whatever the media say but you have a right to your opinion but it’s not the last say. God is the Way the Truth and the Light so the Truth will come out into the Light.
