Ft Lauderdale shooter NG Vet apparently did reach out for help !

FBI: Gunman flew to Florida specifically to attack airport; Associated Press

FBI Agent George Piro said Santiago spoke to investigators for several hours after he opened fire with a 9mm semiautomatic handgun that he appears to have legally checked on a flight from Alaska.

“Indications are that he came here to carry out this horrific attack,” Piro said. “We have not identified any triggers that would have caused this attack. We’re pursuing all angles on what prompted him to carry out this horrific attack.”

Hours of interview with him and no clue?

Santiago had been discharged from the National Guard last year after being demoted for unsatisfactory performance. Bryan Santiago, said Saturday that his brother had requested psychological help but received little assistance. Esteban Santiago said in August that he was hearing voices, Bryan Santiago said. He said he told his brother then to seek help.

“How is it possible that the federal government knows, they hospitalize him for only four days, and then give him his weapon back?” Bryan Santiago said.

I don’t think it takes common core math to add it up!

For whatever reason he was discharge he is still a war vet and needed help! But no excuse for what he did as it seemed calculated!
