This is the problem with the world is ppl like Veteran and ppl like him being ignorant to the seriousness of this disease!!!!
I am sure the police officer now has PTSD due to this incident so here is an idea for you. By your standards and explanation of Millers problems, the officer should be allowed to shoot Miller and if so it will be ok because we will get the officer treatment for his PTSD! P.S. Need I say your are a dumba$$!

As for all veterans including myself there is no excuse for what this "Marine" did!
Personally I have been to Iraq and the PTSD excuse is over rated especially to claim cause as to why this man went to the extent to show his anger. Killing an american, attempting to kill or whatever you want to call it, is plain bs!
You don't kill fellow Americans and you certainly don't attempt to kill law enforcement as they are just like our military, HEROS
People have the misconception of police when it comes to "some" bad apples, but why isn't thete much attention when a member of the Armed Forces become a bad apple.
The majority and in percentages, about 70% come back and become addicted to pain pills but yet we don't look down at them!
The VA specializes in PTSD cases and if that was honestly the excuse of family members putting the blame for no one to help, they simply did not try hard enough!
from one OIF vet to another. Totally agree.

So I was in a bad car accident not to long ago, I have flash backs. So do you think that if I was driving down the road and had a flash back and wrecked and hurt or killed someone it would be ok for me to say its not my fault I had a flash back? No it wouldn't be ok and you would expect me to be charged with all charges possible. There's no difference here!! He did it he deserves to be punished. and if he was so sick why didn't his family and friends get him the help he needed? He could have killed that officer or god knows who else!! What do you think would have happened if he had been in the grocery store or somewhere with many people and killed or injured more than one person!! You people taking up for him are crazy. Get this man some help!!
I didn't even read your whole comment because it was so ignorant from the start. You can not compare a "bad car accident" with what men and women see and do in Iraq! Get the hell out of here, get some education.

Bottom line is he was fighting with his girlfriend and he wasn't getting his way and took it out on everyone else and a officer got shot and chances are he might have problems with that arm for the rest of his life or a long recovery ahead of him, all this from a guy that worked on equipment as a mechanic not like he was out there on the front line where bullets was firing past him all day long. BULLSH_T

If the prosecutor plays it out right, when we know the defense will play the PTSD card, go to hus commander, platoon sergeant, check the sick call sheet while overseas, check on his MOS, everything! I'm sure the $hitbag was not any type of combat duty and the truth shall shine. The excuse is and will be BS!

Once again the VA and the Demobilization stations do their absolute best to help with transitioning.

Also next time the news decides to pick someone to interview, don't pick a druggie to speak on his behalf, as the strong presence of ignorance floats.

U ppl compare this incident to the stupidest stuff, a car accident with flashbacks really?? Ur stupid! Get a clue....and as for the cop, I believe they said a full recovery and he is doing fine and will be fine, so I doubt that he "wont ever be able to use his arm again".....u ppl r ignorant, I hope that one day that u know or are related to someone that has PTSD as bad as Cole did, and yes I said I hope u do....then maybe u will see how serious it is....i'm done arguing with uneducated idiots like yourselves....the truth will or will not come out but the ppl that were closest to Cole know how bad this effected his life and almost took his own life many times......

I was sitting here going through post since this topic was started and brought to my attention by someone else. I have never been on this site before. I have noticed this inquiring mind person is posting on just about every topic and also what I have discovered it seems to know a lot of the same people that I do but I can assure you it is no friend of mine. I do not and will not associate with people that live in drama like this person. You have to live a miserable life to be on here posting on every freakin topic that is on here and constantly trying to stir sh1t. Then it's on here defending someone that has shot a cop! Is he was such a good friend why didn't you pry your a$$ off topix and go try to get him help?? I blame you. Your just as guilty knowing this dude had problems and now that he tried to kill a cop it's a pity party for him. He is worthless and so are you. It's a shame you can't go to the pen with him then you could cry on each others shoulders. He will get what's coming to him one way or another!

you're an idiot. Obviously you know nothing about PTSD besides what you have googled. If you knew how bad off he was then why weren't you there for him then? Why didn't you give enough shit to help him then? Now all of a sudden youre so concerned after he has violated the law! I'm happy the officer will make a full recovery! But what if he didn't? Then you agree a murderer walks free because he screams PTSD to cover his ass? You have no clue! I've been around plenty of infantry soldiers who have seen more crap then I could image. They've sat around my dinner table on thanksgiving fresh out of deployment. Ive heard the stories, ive seen the sick videos, ive held them tight while these grown tough men cried! You want to talk about PTSD.... You have not a single clue! The idiot who shot the cop knows right from wrong. He knows what he did and why he did it. PTSD or not, he should face the consequences of his actions. Are you too stupid to see the outcome if he gets off Scott free? And I've made a good comparison and you chose to ignore my statement! You must have found some truth to what I say. Why don't to do something better besides protect a criminal who almost killed an innocent guy. Send the victim a thank you card for serving his country. Send him an apology letter for your friend almost destroying his and his families lives. Bet you won't! Cause your sorry ass is too busy sitting on topix defending and protecting the wrong guy! Go screw yourself lady!

The soldiers I know struggle from PTSD too, but they know that trying to kill innocent people is wrong! They know right from wrong just like any other in this world! You keep feeling sorry for him! But I can assure you that it's too late to help your dear friend now! Maybe you can pitch in for his attorney cause he's going to need it. He would have had a better shot at screaming PTSD if he would have just shot his girlfriend... Which I'm sure MUST be your friend too!

Must not be too crazy, someone decided to lay down and have a baby with him. Sounds to me he's got a bad case of anger issues, when Somethin doesn't go his way he lashes out.
He shot an individual who was there to protect and serve. The officer didn't open fire on Cole for Cole to have had any kind of flashback to retaliate or trigger PTSD. I believe he let his anger get out of control

You obviously know nothing of flashbacks or PTSD. The officers didn't have to do anything for him to have a flashback or trigger his PTSD. It had obviously already been triggered prior to the officers arriving. Pay attention, idiot.

Okay all u idiots can read my first post. Learn how to f'in comprehend!!!! I never said he should not be held accountable for his actions!!! I said he needed right help tho! Not to just b thrown in prison with their "doctors", he needs professional help!! Btw not only was he effected with this disease but he has had family problems and also the night that happened tried to kill himself with a bottle of pills and was going to shoot himself.
So I guess just holding someone while they talk about it works huh? Yeah right, some ppls disease is worse than others and like I said I for one don't believe for a min that all of u are was vets, yeah easy to b something Ur not behind a computer screen!!

Don't call me an idiot. I'm not the one defending his crazy ass. If he has such severe issues, he should have been taking meds to prevent this sort of thing. PTSD is an anxiety issue. IT doesnt cause u to shoot people.

A full recovery? So you think the officer won't be bothered with the memory of being shot? I bet you if he goes back to work it will always be on his mind wondering if it's going to happen again. Your dumb for taking up for this cole guy. He knew what he was doing there's no excuse for what he did!!

and Ur just as bad as I am to sit there and judge....besides I don't stir nothing nor do I start posts, I give my opinion just like u so deal with it! I have my own family and have no time to be at someone else's side raising them, have my own kid to raise and I only comment and post about ppl or things I know about, sorry it's a small town and we know the same ppl.....prob is that I know most these ppl from my past which does not say alot of good things about YOU!

And sounds to me whoever was comparing the flash back from the car wreck (that made no sense) was just trying to make a point. it doesnt matter what happened in your past it doesn't give anyone any right to hurt another.

What planet do you come from that you know nothing?? Can you not read!? He TRIES several times to get help, IDIOT. Again I say, you obviously know NOTHING about PTSD, because these things DO happen involving people with PTSD more often then you obviously know. Here's an idea, get out of small town gallipolis and step into the real world! Some cases of PTSD are more severe than others.

As for the person who wants to say if the cop goes back to work he would still have fears of being shot, guess what pal? He signed up for the possibility of being shot or killed when he joined the police force! Same as any military soldier who goes to war! At least that's what REAL cops sign up for, not these rinky dink rent a cops in all these small towns that sit on their asses or chat to their buddies not doing anything, but being just as corrupt as the criminals they should be catching. I do believe that the man should be held accountable, no one anywhere has said that it is OKAY what he has done, but there is a such thing as COMPASSION and UNDERSTANDING for a US MARINE who fought for your uneducated asses to have such simple minded uneducated opinions, and now has a serious mental illness that he is obviously having a lot if trouble coping with, with little to no help or resources, and not for lack of trying on his part! His country and government has failed him, and now he has done one more thing that will affect him and plague his mind for the rest of his life. Don't think just because he was the perpetrator that his mind gets off Scott free and the only victim is the cop. They are BOTH victims, and it could of been a whole lot worse.

Also, just to add, had the man shot and killed himself that night instead of shooting the officer in the arm, none of you would be on here bitching about him, or downplaying his PTSD, you'd be bitching about how the government doesn't help the soldiers the way they are supposed to, they way that they promise and how his family should sue the facilities who turned him away (and they still should), BUT you only look at the small left corner of the picture, rather then the whole thing. It's a dad situation on ALL accounts, it isn't as though the man was a hardened criminal who consistently lived a life if crime and murder.
