Jovan Belcher's shameful legacy for KC
The Kansas City Star
Everyone’s reading today about the latest shameful tidbits of the Jovan Belcher case file. I wish they didn’t have to.
The Chiefs’ linebacker who murdered the mother of his child, then cowardly took his own life, also had a secret girlfriend, The Star reports.
Quite frankly: Big surprise.
And Belcher told that secret girlfriend that he might kill the mother of their 3-month-old child.
It’s more titillating information about a killer who has left a sad legacy: He has embarrassed the team he played for and continues to embarrass the town he played for.
Kansas City continues to be in the news in a very negative way because of Jovan Belcher’s actions, and there’s nothing we can do about it.
Belcher was a mentally unstable individual with domestic issues who decided to use a gun to solve things.
He couldn’t imagine letting Kasandra Perkins getting the best of him. Couldn’t imagine her taking his money or the child they had together.
So he decided to empty his gun into Perkins and leave their child fatherless and motherless.
Yeah, gutless. Yeah, another case where a man couldn’t control his emotions and left the world a worse place because of his actions.
