Default American Sniper

I'm just about done reading the book "American Sniper" by Chris Kyle. There is no doubt that this guy was one patriotic bad ass killing machine. As I follow the trial of his professed psychotic murderer, I can't help but ask some basic questions:

Has there been any discussion of why these two trained Seals would even consider allowing Eddie Routh close to a gun let alone close to them with guns? How about maybe taking him bowling or a little round of miniature golf?

There is no doubt that Kyle is a badd a$$, but it doesn't seem real smart to hand a psychotic person a loaded gun especially when he secretly texted Chad Littlefield (Also shot and killed), sitting next to him in a pickup, to say Routh was "straight up nuts" (this came from trial testimony). Maybe they should have done a bit of due diligence and this could have been avoided.

I would say what did they know about him at the time. They knew he was suffering but to what extenet? If Kyle is the man people say about him, he would absolutely help another brother.

From what I've read, Eddie Routh had a loooong history of mental instability.

ahhh ... 20/20 hindsight is so perfect isn't it!
I'm sure there are many questions as to how / why such a tragedy happened. With only 3 people there and now 2 are dead and 1 is a nutjob, I'm positive the TRUTH will never come out.

Agree with the 20/20 Hindsight. Just seems like some accidents can be prevented..... This is a true American tradgedy.

When dealing with the mentally disturbed, you can never know what will set them off. This may have been prevented, again we will never know.

I would not call this an "accident". But you are correct, It is a true American tragedy.
