What's to say. The best case scenario is that he wasn't mentally equipped to endure the level and/or length of the stress he had been subjected to. He screwed the pooch.

He certainly looked on edge. But, in his defense, Officers were being shot at and were told not to fire back. The whole PC commentary on this is way out of control. All the idiot press does is add more fuel to a tense situation.

The press is like a bunch of vultures. Do not listen to them and do speak to them, They have an agenda and they are one sided, sorry but the media is not our friends
