Tim Brent an Arsehole or Not?

Tim Brent an Arsehole or Not?

Killing sentient beings for pleasure and entertainment is symptomatic of a dysfunctional personality. Hunters enjoy shooting their prey which then becomes a trophy, a symbol of their aggression and prowess. When in fact killing a defenceless animal for fun is about as cowardly as you can get.

So not unnaturally when former professional hockey player Tim Brent tweeted this sick image there was a lot of hostile comment.

Magnificent animal with smiling pathetic creature

Now I don’t condone his actions in any way, but I think we should have some sympathy for Tim Brent. Ice hockey is an aggressive and fast-paced sport which has a high risk of injury, concussions in particular. Tim Brent played over 200 games in the National Hockey League before retiring and it is possible that he now has brain damage. Certainly, his behaviour suggests some kind of cognitive malfunction and he may well have serious medical problems.

Therefore, do not be so fast as to dismiss him as a complete arsehole.
