    He goes around without pants 24 hours a day. Furthermore, he has no known job, and yet he has cars and enjoys eating members of his own species. He is also a known carrier of vermin.

    Everyone is innocent of some crime.

    •  Well, he was in the military at some time... (2+ / 0-)

      according to this documentary:

      He wore a naval uniform (At least the hat and jumper, anyway), but here is a commando.  My guess is that he was probably a member of the Navy's UDT - the Underwater Demolition Team, a WW2 era precursor to the Navy SEALs.  

      So it's safe to assume that he might have a pension that would explain him having a car and other things.  

      One need not think too hard to see that perhaps PTSD ("Shell shock" as they called it back then) might be at the root of some of his behaviors, and his nasty, nasty temper.  

      If that's the case, you need to have a bit of compassion for him.  Back in those days, guys with PTSD were told simply to  suck it up and deal with it.  Only recently has the military even tried to deal with PTSD in a more therapeutic sense.  

      He probably needs help, but has no idea where to get it.
