    I think he's innocent. He may have went bizzerko stabbing him that many times, but you never know about these damn guys.

    Negligent homicide and 17 stab wounds, 26 slashes and a chop to the face that nearly severed his nose do not go together.

    Over reaction? :dunno: people get carried away like that when they kill someone. It's definitely not pre-meditated murder though. I could see that guy getting stabbed and not dying so Holmes just went skitzo and stabbed him until completely dead. The months leading into December when this happened were the most fucked up.

    That sucks. Probably the only really dumb thing he did was the false statement.

    I can totally understand his over reaction, and we all know it's plausible that the "soldier" could have possibly been trying to signal.

    Shitty situation all around.

    Just think, if the Iraqi soldier was up to something, and the Marine ended up hurt or killed... he'd be a hero.
