Researchers urge brain autopsy of bombing suspect
Boston Globe ^ | April 20, 2013 | Bob Hohler

Posted on 04/21/2013 12:22:39 PM PDT by Las Vegas Ron

Two pioneering researchers of brain disease among athletes in violent sports recommended Saturday that investigators conduct special autopsy tests on amateur boxer Tamerlan Tsarnaev to determine whether the Boston Marathon bombing suspect could have been affected by boxing-related brain damage.

Good idea. No doubt they will find the evil part in there.

"...to determine whether the Boston Marathon bombing suspect could have been affected by boxing-related brain damage."

Apparently his younger brother caught his mental illness as did those who were helping him make the bombs.

Will these idiots just shut up and go awry? There is probably too little brain to investigate anyway.

Interesting point.

It could accomplish two things in one swoop, negate the muzzie angle and make two researchers financially comfortable.

Another misdirection. After totally discounting the link between Mental Illness ( schizophrenia ) and large homicidal gun attacks in Sandy Hook, Denver and Phoenix, the Hard Left wants to relive the link of violence and Mental Illness.

They are especially eager, now that reports confirm that Hussein's invested so many billions of taxpayer dollars into paying for mass immigration of violent islamic fundamentalists from Yemen, Somalia and Chechnya.

or at least Mike Tyson, chomp, chomp.

On another thread I said "Watch out for the left to start digging up allegations of bizarre behavior like this, match it with his age and claim that the attack was caused by schizophrenia rather than sudden jihad syndrome. And because of that we need to bring back Toomey’s gun control bill." That didn't take long, although I wasn't expecting the boxing angle.

Alcoholism is hardly infectious but we do have Freepers who don’t believe there are folks with no enzymes that metabolize alcohol once it gets in the body. They think those Indians drunk in the gutter just want to be that way ~

I guess these researchers have never heard of Jihad? All the brain autopsies in the world won’t hide the true fact....they are doing it for the Jihad nothing less nothing more.

Of course we should analyze his brain. Start slicing it up right now.

“....Boston Marathon bombing suspect could have been affected by boxing-related brain damage.”

.
Perhaps we should ban boxing altogether — lump it together with the anti-gun bills they’re trying to pass.

Egad, the excuses starting to pile up in MA.

Perhaps we should first start to appologize to the surviving brother for the amount of violence committed by the authorities.

Yes, they should limit boxing to 7 rounds.

The fact that Ali has brain damage that causes Parkinson's-like symptoms does not preclude the possibility that damage to a different area of the brain would incline someone towards violence.

“Researchers urge brain autopsy of bombing suspect....”

I on the other hand, urge an immediate autopsy of the Researchers to determine IF they even have a brain.

yes, I would have to object to this proposal ...
it sounds like a likely “slippery slope”... when they don’t discover a special little defect in the brain of the first Islamic anti-Christian, anti-American they dissect, they will want to cut into all the millions of other Islamics anti-Christian anti-Americans to find their postulated brain defect. (

all in the name of science, of course....

the landscape could begin to look like a Philadelphia abortion clinic

(hint: other boxers have suffered various injuries without blowing up Boston... indeed, all of them have somehow not blown up Boston before....)

hint number 2: the problem is therefore likely not the brains themselves, but the hateful sh*tty view of “religion” that is put INTO their brains. Note that O’s pals in Saudi are funding a couple thousand madrases (Muslim religious training schools and/or camps) including in USA... and all around the world...turning out many more nice young men like we invited to live with us in Boston)

the problem is not the hardware, its the software... and nobody seems willing to confront or rewrite the bad software
