I wish I could say I am surprised with CBC for having to *up* the attention this may get by the "former soldier" aspect.  Is the accused also a former Cub or Scout?  If so, why not include that?  Former badminton player?   ::)
Everything happens for a reason.

Sometimes the reason is you're stupid and make bad decisions.

Their last attempted smear job on the CF made them look like complete and utter retards - they're just trying to make up for it.
Be nice for no reason.

This comes up everytime.  Advantage to the ex-member as the PTSD card can be played once it gets this public.  I am assuming that's the avenue CBC is heading with this.  That and the fact we are all baby killing racists, right?

Or maybe the CBC is just reporting.  The information they have available so far is that the individual is a former soldier.  Over time, I fully expect to hear that he's from the town of Somewhere, and that after he left the military he did Some Job, and there will be interviews with His Friends who Can't Believe He'd Do Something Like That.

Agreed.  We're blowing this out of proportion.  When a suspect is arrested, many times the media will try and report everything they can about the suspect.  Things like "The father of three..." "Is a high school teacher at...", "Was a former bank manager..." or whatever.  I doubt that this is anything nefarious.

I get just as cranked, but remember that media also point out when ex-cops go bad, too.

being ex-military is a prominent career like doctor police officer firefire. If the accused was a former cub scout leader or 'someone' in the community I would guess the media would do the same thing, not that I agree with the practice.

My God. Every time something like this happens. Same ol' crap.

Call a Mod when something 'new' comes in about the actual case.
