As usual, the team leaders failed and Belcher killed himself as the police arrived. Shot himself in the head.
Reports from friends say while he was kind and gentle, he also had violent outbreaks.
Even in college.
Jovan was a un-drafted free agent. The man made over $1 million a year. His girlfriend had a three month old baby, his. She stayed out the night before with other girls to go to a concert. He was upset and she had gone without his OK.
Belcher drove over to her house, where she, the baby and her mother lived. They argued. He got pissed, and of course the obvious answer to these kind of problems is to pull out a gun and shoot the young girl in front of the baby and her mother.
People will just think, “Well, that urban lifestyle leads to this behavior all too often – no big surprise.”
That’s the hard truth. This is how White America thinks. Another urban core example of gang mentality.
Know what? That’s correct.
You’re 6′ 4″ and 270 and she is – what? – 5′ 4″ and 130 pounds.
Yep, you needed that gun brother to protect your ass from that bitch.
I have no words other than, this kind of action leads to continued distrust, disgust, and YES, the looking down of white fans upon black players. You better believe it.
And yes, pity for the little baby and girlfriend but none for the player.
There is just no need or excuse for that action. None.
By the way my media pals in LA called me on this at 8:20 AM, our media did not really get on it until around 10 AM. “An incident at Arrowhead” was all that was reported here early on.
Don’t know why the delays.
