Research has revealed that gang members experience PTSD. Just because they experience this, does not mean that there should be any sympathy towards them.

It isn’t a ‘kick in the teeth’ to troops to reveal the conclusions of academics in an evidence based study.

This guy isn’t the sharpest tool in the box if he confabulates all of these factors and cannot identify the nuance of what is being said.
