Yes it was wrong what this guy did. I believe that he was reaching out for help. Maybe a shoulder to lean on. The x-Marine lost his job, his home is in foreclosure. He has a wife and 2 kids. There was a party coming up for his 8 yr. old daughter. He wanted to make it right and went to the construction co. for a job. He later returned intoxicated and was walked out of the bldg. by an older gent, a man amongst men with the HEART of a lion and an understanding of life. A Marine. Let's hope that he receive's the help he needs.

This is a sad story with a fortunate ending. In most cases someone dies. It makes you wonder why this man was loaded for bear. Was he confrontational when not intoxicated? Did his wife know of the arsenal in her home and that her husband is unstable with major issues? Why wasn't he reported sooner. This man was not just a menace to his family, but a danger to the community as well. It was just a matter of time before he would have killed someone, perhaps many people. This man must be kept off the street for a very long time.
