I found this one via Progressive Secular Humanist and it is absolutely horrifying: father sacrifices family dog to atone for his daughter’s “satanic” tee. Yes, the religion angle makes this horrible but there is something more here.
Patrick Zane Thompson played football. We might be looking at the beginning stages of CTE. He may have damn well been out of his mind when he did this and as far as I know, there is no treatment or cure for CTE.
The religious angle is sad but the football angle makes this absolutely tragic. There may be no help for this man, all because of a sport.
