Three pictures of the US Army spree killer, Staff Sgt Robert Bales
 Part of channel(s): Afghanistan (current event)

The U.S. soldier held in connection to a heinous shooting rampage that claimed the lives of 16 Afghans - including nine children - has been identified as Staff Sgt Robert Bales.

Staff Sgt Robert Bales is pictured before he went on his murderous rampage.
Afghan villagers say the victim's bodies were set alight.
Bales is said to have been plagued by various stresses stemming from his deployment, his marriage, and the fact that he had seen a friend's leg blown off the day before the massacre.

The father of two from Ohio was reported to have been drunk at the time of the alleged rampage, according to some sources.
Bales was stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Tacoma, Washington, where it is thought his family have been moved to a secure unidentified location, although it is not known if he has made threats to slaughter them.

He was flown to an American base in Kuwait earlier this week, but on Friday evening was transferred to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas for detention ahead of a future court martial.

His attorney, John Henry Browne, has said he plans to highlight Bales's suspected post-traumatic stress disorder, exacerbated by his witnessing an explosion the day before the alleged attack.

Browne represented serial killer Ted Bundy, who murdered 30+ females.

  • What pisses me off if the Obama admn rush to try and kill this guy. However the Army Dr that murdered his fellow soldiers while shouting, alla snackbar is still not put on trial and the shooting has been classified a "workplace violence" by Holder and the DOJ WTF!!!

  • Odds are this guy was on an anti depressant like Prozac. All of the school massacre shooters were, every one of them. Even the pet chimpanzee that ripped the woman's face off was on Prozac.

  • Two words -- BLOW BACK!! The Taliban can go into a village and kill people, blow up schools, etc...and Karzai get´s on the US case!? The ONLY reason he hasn´t been beheaded yet is because the US is protecting his ass -don´t know why. This happens in the US (and Norway, for example) - why wouldn´t it happen in a war-zone?! Mass killings - oh my! How many Americans were killed while training those "allies." Never ending.

      Not to defend the libs, but they're point of view is fluid. They only said that to criticize Bush. The libfools have no idea what the fuck they are doing, and anybody who knew military history for the last 2,000 years, con or lib, knows you can't win and extended land war in friggin' Afghanistan.

      It's just the usual military industrial complex bullshit augmented by the new DC-Banking-Media complex. Everybody wets their beaks on the life blood hemorrhaging from US Treasury. The More..

  • child killer, he looks like a child killer,


    i blame the government on this one, they use the soldiers as pawns for their own hidden agendas then just let them fend off for them selves,

    there is little to no attention to the soldiers that experience stress. they see the symptoms but they do jack shit to treat the soldiers.

  • It's pretty obvious he did it, and alone. he said so. Don't know if he was drinking, don't care. Booze doesn't make you kick in doors and shoot kids in the mouth and burn them up.
    Personally, I am glad he didn't kill himself afterwards because we know who did it, because he told us then and will again. This is only his 3rd deployment in 11 years. That isn't much for a Infantryman. Did he think he was gonna sit around and collect a check for the next 10 to 20 years because he got a bump on the h More..

      Hey douchebag,he did it. he said he did it. He surrednered himself at the gatewhen he came back.They were already aware he wasmissing, but not what he had done. Thsi isn'r a "fallguy". He acted alone. He will get his Courtmartial. He has Ted Bundy's lawyer already. Hopefully the result will be the same. The lawyer isn't doing this Pro bono.
      But we don't murder for a paycheck. Doesn'tsurprise me you would throw that accusation out there, anonymously, hiding on the internet More..

  • Do people ever stop to think these soldiers are fucking fed up with being there? That's what I get from Marines pissing on dead taliban, burning Korans and soldiers going on killing sprees. They're tired and fed up. Soldiers are suppose to suck it up and move on, well there's only so much of that you can do before losing your mind. That countrys an absolute shit hole and our troops are dealing with that first hand everyday.
