So here's a story from Channel 25:
My question is what does the fact this guy is an ex-soldier have to do with anything here? Nothing in the article indicates it's relevant. Is it just informational? Did they leave something out? Does Channel 25 identify every other person who is sentences by their former occupation or profession? Or is there a not-so-subtle implication of PTSD or other issues with this guy because he used to be a soldier and now killed someone? If it does have something to do with the case, you wouldn't know that from the story. Perhaps I spend so much time reading and disecting the news that I'm making too much of this. But I don't think so.
