    What's wrong with having this thread? I don't get the complaints...

    Hoffa, I couldn't disagree more. You may be able to easily dismiss this and say "Benoit was just a psycho"... but for me, I find it hard to believe that an athlete with no criminal record, who did lots of charitable work, just one day went homicidal like he was a total psychopath his whole life?

    I think it's very possible that series of head injuries led to dementia which factored into what happened.

    I'm not saying I buy the article 100%. But something happened to make him go from the somewhat normal person he was to the murderer that he became basically overnight.

    Whatever research can be done to help determine why that occurred has to be a good thing, hey if it can help someone else one day you know? Better than just saying "eh he was just a psycho, lets forget about it"

    I wasn't talking about this thread, I was talking about the story in general. It's just a downer to hear about this stuff over and over. Most of these television shows covering the incident are just trying to get ratings, and capitalize on a tragedy.

    Oh, I'm not saying that. Something did go wrong with him, for sure.

    We don't know how long he had been off track. No one knows for sure what's going on inside someone else's head. Although it may have appeared he was "normal" doing charitable work etc, inside he could have been quite the opposite. He could have had a psychopathic disorder that he wrestled with in secret for years. Finally, one day he gave in to the demons, or what he was hearing in his head.

    I'm just saying having Alzheimer's or dementia does not drive you to do what he did. People with those disorders are not capable of methodically planning out the murders like he did.
