We already learned the cause, the shooter had a traumatic brain injury from serving as a weapons instructor in the military where he was subjected to routine explosive forces from firing grenade launchers inches from his brain. This is not controversial, there was a brain scan conducted that gave this evidence.

It follows a long line of brain injury sufferers committing crimes and acting erratically. This includes OJ Simpson and Aaron Hernandez. It is only a matter of time before the military can’t recruit anyone because of the likelihood of such an injury. The NFL is also finished. If I could short the NFL for the next 20 years, I would make that bet. Same with UFC.
