“Brain illness is not a hallpass.” Sue Klebold, interview with Dr. Azmet Oz, February 17, 2016

Actually, brain illness is uncontrollable.  How is it that this lady, who has dealt with people and disabilities, doesn’t seem to realize that brain illness drives some behaviors?  Let’s say, it’s not a mental illness, like bipolar disorder, or Aspergers, but a medical disorder, like strokes.  My dad had a transient ischemic attack that left him unable to walk because it destroyed his balance.  He said:  “Alison, I’m listing to port,”  in that humorous way he tended to talk about his cancer and the end of his life as an old man.  And of course, he wasn’t leaning left, port, he was leaning right, which might say something about the areas of his brain that were damaged.

BUT TO SAY THAT HIS BRAIN WAS SOMETHING HE COULD CONTROL UNDER THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES?  NO WAY IN HELL!

Perhaps Sue Klebold has suffered too much, I guess. It’s time for John and Jane Q. Public to stop being assholes to the families of those who kill.  It’s not the families fault.

 

So sad, so depressing.
