Relatives: Airport Shooting Suspect Had Mental Health Issues
Meanwhile the right wing blogosphere / false news machine is telling whatever lies it takes and manufacturing false evidence to paint this Vet as an ISIS terrorist. In the end truth doesn’t matter to their readers they only care about political optics and theater, and the point that another very obviously mentally ill person was able to buy and transport semi auto weapons will be lost on them. (does motive really matter to the dead and wounded people in Florida? Does it really matter that most terrorists of all stripes have mental and social ability deficits?)
The man police say opened fire with a gun from his checked baggage at a Florida airport had a history of mental health problems — some of which followed his military service in Iraq — and was receiving psychological treatment at his home in Alaska, his relatives said Friday after the deadly shooting.
“Only thing I could tell you was when he came out of Iraq, he wasn’t feeling too good,” his uncle, Hernan Rivera, told The Record newspaper (http://bit.ly/2j04ghF ).
Esteban Santiago, 26, deployed in 2010 as part of the Puerto Rico National Guard, spending a year with an engineering battalion, according to Guard spokesman Maj. Paul Dahlen.
