    I still don't know. They recently did a really interesting study that says that kids raised in violent areas suffer the exact same sort of PTSD that combat veterans do, many of them even to the same degree that a full combat stint in Iraq could give you. And there are a fuckload more of them than there are combat veterans. But here you are, obviously meaning well, saying that we need a veterans' court that can handle PTSD counseling and so forth.

    The truth is, all of our courts need to be more sensitive to that sort of thing. And if veterans get a court that is, and kids who watch their parents get shot get a court that isn't, that's simply not justice.
