Wade Michael Page, 40, was shot to death by police responding to the Sunday morning attack in the Milwaukee suburb of Oak Creek, the community's chief of police told reporters.

    The military needs to screen who it trains better, and do a better job of putting the troops back into society. You can't take a narcissistic sociopath (social idiot), train him to be a killer, put him back into the civilian community cold turkey and expect no bad results, it doesn't work that way.

      The guy was a missle repaiman over 20 years ago. I think your making too much of the military angle, it's a non factor.
