Transparency: Veterans Charged with Murder
In 2008, The New York Times published a stunning report on veterans who had come home from Iraq and Afghanistan and then were charged with murder. At that point, the paper found 121 instances of homicide, many of them related to post-traumatic stress disorder. Now, two years later, an episode of Current TV's documentary series Vanguard explores the link between post-traumatic stress disorder among veterans of the two recent wars and violence after returning home, and finds that the trend has continued. This graphic is a look at the victims of the 43 veterans who have been charged with murder since 2008 or were missed by the Times report. War Crimes will air on Current TV on July 7 at 10 p.m.
