Have you been paying attention to what is going on in the #AmericanSniperTrial
? Defense is claiming Routh was insane at the time he shot and killed #ChrisKyle
due to his PTSD. Basically, his PTSD and mental condition at the time of the killings prevented him from knowing right from wrong. It is being called the #PTSDDefense
Its a hard defense because you have to show 12 strangers what was going on inside the defendant Routh's head at the time. How do you do that? About all you can do is show his actions before and immediately after. What did he say, how did he act, what else did he do?
The defense started its case today by calling Routh's mother, sister, fiancé and brother in law. They each testified about what he was like before this happened.
