Riddle Me This...

Pro wrestler Benoit kills wife, son, then self
Police investigating whether ex-champion's use of steroids was cause...
The WWE canceled its live “Monday Night RAW” card in Corpus Christi, Texas, and USA Network aired a three-hour tribute to Benoit in place of the scheduled wrestling telecast.

So we celebrated a man who killed his wife and child with a 3 hour Special?!?!?!?!?!

How is Chris Benoit any different than...

Bail revoked for man accused of killing family
Illinoisan initially not considered suspect after wife, children shot in SUV

Or maybe this one...
$5 million bond for suspect in woman’s death
Boyfriend charged with murder; friend of his held on obstruction charge

Tell me folks...have we been manipulated by the media? Do TV personalities become immortals overnight? Yes we celebrated a man who obviously was a great wrestler and great entertainer. But how can we desensitize the murder, by his own hands, of his family? Does his celebrity status make it ok to murder? Oh you've not heard the last about this one. I can see a sanity statement because of steroid abuse. Well the dumba$$ was using an illegal of a substance. That makes it ok...he's a celebrity and was doing drugs...A Ok in my book. NOT!!!

WTF am I missing here?....

That is DISGUSTING. Absolutely DISGUSTING.

Glad I am NOT a wrestling fan.
