The hidden dangers of ignition interlock devices

Ignition interlock devices, used in 34 states, are an accepted way to allow those convicted of drunk driving back on the road without endangering other motorists. Effectively, it’s an established method to stop drunk driving before it starts. An ignition interlock device requires the driver to blow into a machine that tests their blood alcohol concentration. If the driver passes the sobriety test, they can begin their trip. If they fail, the car won’t start. The result is one everyone can approve of: The driver must find a new means of transport, and the roads will be safe from at least one drunk driver.

TBI may have influenced Hernandez's murderous behavior

A new Netflix documentary details the trial of ex-Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez and highlights the severity of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in contact sports. The NFL, including teams like the Patriots, have long misrepresented the dangers of repeated head trauma. Nevertheless, studies have shown that degenerative brain diseases related to TBI can lead to erratic behavior, mood swings and violence. Though there may be many factors contributing to Hernandez's violence, it seems clear that TBI was a factor in his crimes.
