Chris Kyle; RIP

| February 3, 2013

Since I knew about it before most people, you’d think I’d have dealt with it by now. But I haven’t. I’ve been staring at an empty screen for more than two hours wondering what I could write. I never met Chris Kyle, but after reading his book, you get a sense that you have met him.

But, last night, I got a call from someone who wanted us to help the police find Kyle’s killer. I was stunned when he gave me the news. I have no idea who it was that called, but he had access to police message traffic, so, you know, I can guess. So I called the sheriff’s department and they confirmed for me that the incident had indeed happened, but they wouldn’t confirm that Kyle was involved.

But, anyway, I guess they caught Eddie Routh, Kyle’s killer. According to some of our Marines with access to the Marines On Line database, Routh is a corporal and a unit armorer and currently in the Individual Ready Reserve – that status you do before you get out of the service.

According to Fox News, Routh was apprehended near Lancaster, TX at about 9:30 local time last night after shooting Kyle and his neighbor in the back and fleeing the scene in a pickup belonging to one of his victims, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Now, if you don’t want to get pissed off, you should stop reading here. I cruised over the Huffington Post and read some of the comments those tiny-brained morons were leaving and, of course, it’s all about gun control and veterans. And of course, they tell us that Kyle’s death was karma for killing more than 150 insurgents. Twitchy logged some of the “tweets” from the Leftist ghouls yesterday celebrating the death and standing on his body for their political agenda.

Here’s an example;

    I’ve always tried to get soldiers to correct any misconceptions I have

    You obviously didn’t bother to listen….just by the assertions you make. Seriously, hundred’s of thousands died from disease? Wrong…Napalm? Killed EVERY male from 16-45?

    You won’t believe the guys who were actually there but you will believe the IVAW, the vast majority of whom were never in Iraq?

    And you actually wonder why nobody will answer you seriously? Sheesh….

    All: Mr. Shack is a bit “indisposed” at the moment. He’ll remain so until Jonn decides what to do with him.

    I see we said goodbye to the Troll….amazing what happens when you’re gone for a few days….Wow!

  4. RealDealHolyfield says:

    I feel bad for Chris Kyle and his family. You can’t kill that many people without punishment. He faces eternal damnation in hell just for our protection. I hope the devil is merciful.

    Someone forgot the phrase “judge not lest ye be judged”.

    @ 410 … You have it all wrong. He is standing watch at the gates of heaven. Perhaps perched up high … looking outward for evil as it is ever present. And now base on your comments, you should be worried that he will put a bead on you, should you be selected to walk towards those gates. If SOC Kyle does not stop you … Saint Peter certainly will.


    It will save vauable ammunition!

    Sparky, Jacky-baby is being moderated. His comments won’t be left up long enough to comment on them.

  12. NHSparky says:
