Phillip Adams Had Severe C.T.E. at the Time of Shootings [Video]

Phillip Adams Had Severe C.T.E. at the Time of ShootingsBy Jonathan AbramsDec. 14, 2021Updated 6:33 p.m. ETA neuropathologist found an “unusually severe” form of the brain disease in the 32-year-old former N.F.L. player who killed six people in April before shooting himself.The posthumous brain examination of Phillip Adams, a 32-year-old retired journeyman N.F.L. player who shot and killed six people before dying by suicide in April, revealed that he had an “unusually severe” form of C.T.E., a degenerative brain disease found in athletes and others with a history of repeated hits to the head.Dr. Ann McKee, director of the C.T.E. Center at Boston University, said an examination of Adams’s brain showed significantly dense lesions in both frontal lobes, an abnormally severe diagnosis for a person in his 30s that most nearly resembled that of Aaron Hernandez, a former New England Patriots tight end who was 27 years old when he died by suicide after being convicted of a 2013 murder.The violent rampage by Adams transformed an early spring day into a nightmare that shocked the community in Rock Hill, S.C., a city of 65,000 bonded through football, having produced so many skillful players it is nicknamed Football City U.S.A. The victims included Robert Lesslie, a prominent local physician; his wife, Barbara; and two of their grandchildren, Adah, 9, and Noah, 5. Adams also killed two air-conditioning technicians, James Lewis and Robert Shook, whom he confronted at the Lesslies’ house. He later barricaded himself in his family home before fatally shooting himself.“These eight months have been unimaginably difficult,” the Lesslie family said in a statement. “Even in the midst of crushing heartbreak, we are finding some comfort in the C.T.E. results and the explanation they provide for the irrational behaviors pertaining to this tragedy.”Kevin Tolson, the York County Sheriff, said on Tuesday that the police investigation had not yielded any connection between Adams and the Lesslies, and there was no documentation showing that Adams was the doctor’s patient.Lawyers representing Shook’s family requested the findings of the C.T.E. examination and hired private investigators in an effort to ascertain how Adams obtained the firearms used in the killings as part of a wrongful-death suit against his estate filed in July. A hearing in the case is set for Jan. 4.Adams used two firearms, .45-caliber and 9-millimeter handguns, in the killings. Law enforcement recovered more than 20 other weapons from Adams’s home, Tolson said. In 2016, Adams was charged in North Carolina with carrying a concealed weapon, a misdemeanor. C.T.E., or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, is believed to be caused by repeated blows to the head and can be diagnosed only posthumously. The degenerative brain disease is linked to alarming symptoms like personality changes, memory loss and impulsive outbursts.“Severe frontal lobe pathology might have contributed to Adams’s behavioral abnormalities, in addition to physical, psychiatric and psychosocial factors,” McKee said in a news conference on Tuesday. “Theoretically, the combination of poor impulse control, paranoia, poor decision-making, emotional volatility, rage and violent tendencies caused by frontal lobe damage could converge to lower an individual’s threshold for homicidal acts — yet such behaviors are usually multifactorial.”Adams, a defensive back, was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the seventh round of the 2010 N.F.L. draft. He bounced around the league, playing for the Patriots, the Seattle Seahawks, the Oakland Raiders, the Jets and the Atlanta Falcons before his career ended in 2015.His trajectory followed the path of many N.F.L. players who never find firm footing in the league. But Adams found it difficult to confront the end of his playing days, those close to him said after the mass shooting, and his last-ditch chance to make an N.F.L. team fizzled.He remained close to home, helping to care for his mother, Phyllis, a former high school teacher who became a paraplegic after a car accident a decade ago.Adams’s family told investigators that he experienced difficulty sleeping through the excruciating pain sustained from injuries during his playing career. A serious ankle injury ended his rookie season and he sustained two documented concussions while playing for Oakland.Adams also complained to his family of frequent memory lapses, according to Sabrina Gast, the York County coroner. She added that Adams had in his system amphetamines and Kratom, an unregulated drug believed to help ………………..https://www.nytimes.com/2021/12/14/sports/football/phillip-adams-cte-shootings.htmlCorrection: Dec. 14, 2021Because of an editing error, an earlier version of this article misspelled the surname of the director of the C.T.E.

Peter Corris: Documentary about Australia’s most prolific and popular contemporary crime writer [Video]

In this documentary Peter Corris interacts with fictional characters from his many books, including Wet Graves, White Heat and The Dying Trade, weaving together fact and fiction and illustrating that the ‘mean streets’ of sunny Sydney are every bit as murky and dangerous as those of New York or Los Angeles.Subscribe to wocomoCULTURE: https://goo.gl/VITuUtFollow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wocomoA self-confessed formula writer, influenced by Chandler, Ross McDonald and Elroy, Corris admits that he will never write a great book, but that he seeks to reach as many people as possible. Averaging five books a year, he talks about the great pleasure he takes from the whole process, from switching on the word processor to donning his characters like an old coat and falling into their speech patterns.He discusses the way in which his creations give him a vicarious life as a tough guy and the thorny problem of writing sex scenes, especially when they are read by his teenage daughters. His writing covers a wide spectrum, including non-fiction, but central to his work is the geographical setting of Sydney, a city which he fled to as a refugee from academic life in Victoria and which maintains a strong hold over his imagination. He is filmed travelling around the city, in a tattoo parlour in the King’s Cross district, in Bondi, the harbour and bay area, and at a race-track and boxing gym. He also talks about his struggle with diabetes, a threat to his sight and an ever-present reminder of his mortality, and the possibility of losing ‘the knack’ – the two incentives which spur him on.Directed by Malcolm McDonald, 1985© Licensed by Digital Classics Distribution

Casey Martin Knows What Tiger Woods Faces. He Can’t Wait to Watch – #CaseyMartin #KnowsWhat #TigerWo [Video]

Casey Martin Knows What Tiger Woods Faces. He Can’t Wait to WatchTiger returns this week at PNC Championship. Casey Martin, who has dealt with devastating leg pain, has a unique perspective on what lies ahead.#CaseyMartin #KnowsWhat #TigerWoods #Faces #HeCan #Wait #Watch Tiger is back—sort of—at the PNC Championship this week. Martin, who has dealt, too, with devastating leg pain, has a unique perspective on what lies ahead.Tiger Woods returns to public golf this week at the PNC Championship, playing with his 12-year-old son, Charlie, and—if he chooses—riding in a cart.“Is he really?” Casey Martin asks.This is rich, isn’t it? Twenty years ago, Martin sued the PGA Tour for the right to use a cart during competition. He was born with a circulation disorder in his right leg called Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber Syndrome, and he could do everything an elite golfer could do, except walk. That was excruciating. The Tour argued that walking was an essential part of golf. So did Jack Nicklaus. So did Martin’s old Stanford teammate and friend Tiger Woods.“I’m gonna give him crap,” Martin says. “I’m going to text him: Hey, I’m pumped you’re playing, but I want some kickbacks if you take a cart.”Keyur Khamar/PGA TOUR/Getty ImagesMartin laughs. He is serious about the text, but he wants to be clear about his intent. He loves Tiger. He always has. Their disagreement a generation ago was never personal. Martin, at 49, wants to needle Tiger, at 45, because that’s what friends do—and if anybody understands that, it’s Tiger Woods.Woods has many closer friends. But there is nobody who understands this incarnation of Tiger Woods the way that Martin does. Martin has known Woods for most of Tiger’s life, and he knows what it’s like to compete on the PGA Tour with a right leg that is close to useless. Martin understands the challenge ahead for Woods—but, for a variety of reasons, he believes Tiger can meet it.Woods said recently that a right-leg amputation was “on the table” for him this year. Martin knows all about that, too. Two years ago, he broke his right leg when he slipped in front of his house, and there was no real chance that it would heal properly. He tried everything and finally decided his best chance at a normal life was amputation, just above his knee.Martin’s doctors in Eugene, Ore., where he coaches the University of Oregon’s golf team, told him that the procedure was too risky for them. So Martin met with a surgeon at the Mayo Clinic.“The guy looked at me and said, ‘I can do this,’” Martin recalls. “‘But I’m going to be nervous.’”Martin appreciated the honesty. He decided to go for it. As he awaited surgery in October, one of the last texts he received was from Tiger.“He basically said: Man, I know you’ve been through a ton,” Martin says. “He referenced God, in the sense of, You can handle this. He said I’m one tough MF… Love you, dude. Right before I’m going into surgery, that text meant a lot.”Twice, as a younger man, Martin played U.S. Open practice rounds with Woods. He was astounded by both the size and the passion of the galleries. There had never really been anything like that in golf. Back then, Martin wondered what it was like to be Tiger Woods. Now Tiger Woods is finding out what it’s like to be Casey Martin.The scene of Tiger Woods’ one-car accident last Feb. 23 in Los Angeles. Mike Ehrmann/Getty ImagesStart with the swing. Tiger has always been a golf dork, after all. No detail is too small, no nuance too subtle, no conversation about grips or grass strains or ball flight too boring. After Woods emerged from that frightening one-car accident in Los Angeles with comminuted open fractures in the tibia and fibula of his right leg, and after he said that the pain was worse than anything he had experienced in a career filled with injuries, Casey Martin saw hope in one word: right leg.“Left leg, he’s done,” Martin says. “Left leg, he’d never play golf again at a high level, because you’ve gotta drive into your left side. But right leg? You can do it.”Martin knows. He made it all the way to the PGA Tour with a bum right leg. “I didn’t use my right leg much,” Martin says. “I just bumped on it. If he can just put a little pressure on it—which I’m sure he can, because he’s walking—he’ll be shockingly better than you think.”Martin heard Woods say that he can play “hit-and-giggle golf,” which is all that this PNC Championship is, and Martin says, “I think he’s just slow-playing everybody.” Martin believes Tiger can do much better. His only question is whether Tiger can regain distance.“You can’t play on Tour if you can’t drive it 300 [yards] with moderate accuracy,” Martin says. “If he hits 250 and can’t play, he ain’t gonna play. He’s gonna shut it down. But I don’t think that’s [the reality]. I mean, I can hang out on my left side and swing my arms and hit it 280. And I’m not Tiger.“I’ve got pictures of him pivoting, which are ridiculous, when he was a kid. You don’t need to
