"On 4chan, many interpreted Eric Paddock’s behavior as erratic."

He had just discovered that he lost his own brother, who was revealed to be responsible for the deadliest shooting in US history ever. Immediately addressed the media on the issue, trying to answer any questions the world (including he himself) has, about it. Let. A man. Ramble.
