  1. Did boxing damage play a role in Boston bombings?

    ( -- Tamerlan Tsarnaev is telling no tales. The older of the two brothers who committed the Boston Marathon bombings was likely the one who planned the attack, but when he died in a shootout with police just days after the blasts, his thoughts and motivations vanished with him.

    But the brain that was home to his angry mind remains, and in this case that may mean something.

    Tsarnaev was an amateur boxer who won the New England Golden Gloves competition as recently as 2009 and 2010. That speaks to a young man with a healthy sense of discipline and focus, and if he had a violent streak, it was violence well-channeled.

    But his sport of choice suggests the possibility of something else too: traumatic brain injury.

    As the National Football League and other pro sports increasingly reckon with the early dementia, mental health issues, suicides and even criminal behavior of former players, the risk of what's known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), is becoming clear.

    Boxers are perhaps the best-studied victims of CTE, with the consequences of consistent trauma to the head described initially as "punch drunk," but emerging as CTE in the 1950s, says Dr. Robert Stern, cofounder of the Boston University Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy. The term "better describes a neurodegenerative disease caused, at least in part, by repetitive brain trauma," he says.

    That makes perfect sense. Remember when Cassius Clay changed his name to Mohammad Ali?

    All boxers should be on the no-fly and terrorist lists.

    At least until they get some sense beat into them; or does the sense get beat out of them? :confused:

    Belief in Islam is not a necessary or sufficient condition for this kind of act. Neither media piece presented says otherwise.

    According to a report by the National Counterterrorism Center, Sunni Muslim terrorists committed "about 70 percent" of the 12,533 terrorist murders in the world last year. The 2011 Report on Terrorism was based upon on information available as of March 12, 2012. Of those most likely to be killed by terrorists, unarmed civilians risked the greatest danger, followed by police officers.

    I'm actually surprised no Liberals have blamed Bush for it yet.

    If someone were to keep creating unsupported speculations about the earth warming (or created models which failed) .... but consistently left out the sun and tides, would you not realize they are avoiding bringing up obvious possibilities because of their agenda.

  9. The left is doing what they do best. Excuse, minimize, rationalize, do anything but hold someone accountable. The lengths that these cocksukers go to with their doublespeak would even have Orwell saying WTF.

    Again, you seem to be fearful that if we understand his motive(s) we will not punish him.
