Years ago, I worked with Alzheimer's patients. It's a degenerative brain disease. Alzheimer's can make the sweetest, most gentle grandma swear like a sailor, kick, scratch, and bite. It can make an outgoing, active person into a terrified child huddled in a corner screaming for hours at a time. Standard medications might or might now work as expected in an Alzheimer's patient.
Brain damage does not excuse what happened to the Benoit family. This could have been prevented, which is probably the worst aspect of the case.
I can only hope that evidence from this case and others like it can be used to help prevent any more Chris Benoits from going on rampages. I hope more can be done to prevent head injuries in sports. I also hope that we stop rewarding athletes for bulking up to look like the Incredible Hulk with steroids.
As long as we reward people for steroid use with huge paychecks, we are part of the problem.
Thank you and remember to spay and neuter your pets.
