    The new leader of the Liberal Party in Canada, the infamous Justin Trudeau, defeated a Conservative Senator in a charity boxing match last year.

    I think we're on to the major problem with politics today - too many addled brains getting elected.

    Good afternoon, CJ.

    Agree, and unfortunately most of them have never boxed a day in their life! It's ridiculous that we put up with it!

    I think the older brother probably had violent tendencies and probably used boxing as an outlet for his aggression. But I don't think boxing brain injury caused him to do what he did. Instead, I think he suffered from the same old story that most of the other mass killers seem to suffer from....high expectations to succeed and then failing and then alienation and blaming society for his failures.

    Thanks. I'm certain that you, as well as I, thought of it as supportive of his claim regarding the long term effects of boxing.

    Boxing had nothing to do with it

    Islam had everything to do with it

    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...
