Not that he would, but if the alleged cat mutilator went on to start shooting people in a theater, it would be another of those hand wringing cases about warning signs of mental illness or omminous behavior.
But if he never did anything more, it would just be another domestic dispute.
Is this a person with a propensity to violence and an indifference to suffering caused by three deployments to Afghanistan, or is it just a high strung, overly testosterone-laden male who got a little out of hand ?
In a subtext of the gun debate, the media describers the mutilator as a sniper by trade.
And what of all these requests by the wife for employer intervention ?
If something bad ever happened involving this person, there would be ample fodder for recriminations about why the signs were overlooked....But the signs are not always actionable until a law is broken.
That has happened here, We will never know if anything was ever done in this case, because it's a personel matter and it involves medical records.
