Cops: Jovan Belcher, Kansas City Chiefs player from Long Island, kills girlfriend, self

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Police said Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, 25, fatally shot his girlfriend early Saturday, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager, police said.

Police spokesman Darin Snapp confirmed it was Belcher, a fourth-year player from West Babylon, who played college ball at Maine. The woman's name has not yet been released.

Snapp said Belcher shot the woman at a Kansas City residence, then drove to the Chiefs facility. Belcher thanked Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel for all they had done for him, then shot himself, police said.

What are the dynamics behind this? I think I could find a story like this almost every day that occurred in some city or town.

3. I would say also, when a woman is trying to leave the batterer or

domestic abuser.

3 women a day are killed by their significant other.

You can search for these stories in the news on google, and find a new instance or two, every single day.

4. You're right....

 

Women must never say they are going to leave. Just go.

Women must be very careful as to the men they bring into their lives. It's too bad that our culture pushes hetero women to always be in a relationship with a man. I believe it leads to 'settling' due to the pressure.

I had a good friend die at the age of 47....murdered by husband. And he got away with it. She always felt she had to have a man in her life....and ended up with this attractive, yet alcoholic gambler.

I still miss her. She would ask me, 'How can you stand living alone?' And I would ask her, 'How can you live with that piece of shit?'

I still fantasize about how we could have killed him before he killed her. Oh well. Karma will get his nasty ass.

6. Women must never say they are going to leave. Just go.

i agree with all your comments. i know people that cannot be alone. it is so easy for me. another reason why my marriage works. i have no problem saying thanks for the 19 yrs.... and getting on with my life, if tomorrow he walk.

but, people that need to be with someone. they choose desperately.

7. "3 women a day are killed by their significant other"

At some point, we as a society might want to start seriously addressing Male Pattern Violence.
