After last Thursday Night Football’s violent ending where a Brown’s defender, Myles Garret, pulled the helmet off of the Steelers’ quarterbacks’ head and then used the piece of equipment as a weapon to strike the QB in the head with the helmet, I immediately recognized the anger and violence as being a sign of the times. Why has society gotten so violent? Did the Founding Fathers see this coming? Is violence addressed by the U.S. Constitution or in the writings of the Framers?
