It's being reported locally that this may have been a somewhat "planned out attack" to get a PTSD disabilty discharge.
Apparently Kinosh has been trying to get a discharge claiming a physical injury. The Marines weren't buying it and this may have been plan B? He wants out and the family wants to return home to CT, NY, or where ever. Notice in the vid how he immediately mentions his "broken back". After the attack he is able to get off the island and to the mental health facility before LE can ID and find him. No easy task with only two avenues off Topsail (besides a boat). He may have had a ride on standby? Watching the video he seems intent on forcing a confrontation. There's no doubt he was drinking but he may have not been quite as inebriated as it seems?? Some patrons there said he was pretty quiet but was kind of eye-balling certain people??
I can only hope if this is all true the authorities don't buy it.
