TIME criticized for article linking Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s boxing history to Boston bombings

An article in TIME magazine published on the front page of sister network CNN’s website titled “Did boxing damage play a role in Boston bombings?” is being widely criticized by media critics, brain specialists, and boxing professionals.

The article, written by senior editor and science/technology reporter Jeffrey Kluger, notes that while the suspect is dead, the “brain that was home to his angry mind remains, and in this case that may mean something.”

The article posits that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a champion amateur box in the New England region, “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.”

I'm seeing more of this stupid stuff in the news coverage.  On my way home today, they had a medical examiner testifying about boxing and brain injuries.

C'mon, Chris, what do you expect from the navel gazing, chattering class?  There has to be a reason he wigged out other than islam and thus not being obinga's fault for ignoring the little prick.
"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and then bid the geldings to be fruitful."

C.S. Lewis

A community may possess all the necessary moral qualifications, in so high a degree, as to be capable of self-government under the most adverse circumstances; while, on the other hand, another may be so sunk in ignorance and vice, as to be incapable of forming a conception of liberty, or of living, even when most favored by circumstances, under any other than an absolute and despotic government.

John C Calhoun, "Disquisition on Government", 1840

I expected this.  It just pisses me off to see it.

It's no different than all of the supporters Girls who wanna have his baybees and Barry's low info voters....

They'll latch onto ANYTHING to avoid Islam/Jihad.

Looking for reasons they did it is ridiculous. It's called global Islamic Jihad. Did the US forget 9/11?

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

"America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."  Stalin
