Who has the problem–the bank robber or his wife?

A Minneapolis police SWAT officer confessed to 12 robberies—including at least two bank robberies—apparently hoping that he would be killed and his wife could collect a $250,000 life insurance payout.

The wife, however, falsely claimed to have cancer, and also claimed that the couple’s daughter was molested. Did she push her husband over the edge?

“crazy as a sheet house rat” is the correct “technical” term I think.

It also may be a case of what I call “gasoline and fire” relationships where BOTH parties are turned toward being HIGH IN PSYCHOPATHIC TRAITS.

However, the reports (if true) of her pathological lying for No real “reason” that we could understand point pretty positively to HER being a psychopath.

With HIS history of being in high stress combat situations in the war it sort of leans toward him maybe having PTSD, however, also many people who are “high risk takers” and also psychopathic traits are in COP type “high risk” jobs so either way, but, and here’s the rub, there’s no way we can know how badly if at all this poor guy has PTSD or something else that would make him go off the deep end.

Some of us (victims in general) have participated in some criminal or other bad activities because of the Stockholm Syndrome, look at Patty Hearst. It is difficult for me to draw a line and say “is a person who has Stockholm syndrome” and PTSD totally “responsible” for their participation in that sort of thing, or should they be shown some MERCY?

Or, is this guy just another psychopath who was iinvolved with a psychopath and is USING HER ABUSE OF HIM as an excuse for HIM BECOMING A ROBBER?

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Scary question, that. In this case. Truth stranger than fiction? You bet!

Looking forward to you upcoming book review. My time to go is coming.

I observe that someone is triggering spam out of his email and that there are more changes apearing on his my space page. I know he isn’t likely to be working on these things trhough Truelinc but somebody is doing something…..

And apparently nobody is watching.
