In response to Sandra Mary Smith’s letter “Self-defense claim doesn’t make sense”:

Chris Kyle was helping Eddie Routh, who had post-traumatic stress, so Kyle had no idea he was going to get shot.

Kyle might have thought that Routh, the alleged shooter, was even a friend.

When I think of self-defense, it is when some nut is trying to break into my house.
