As promised in Tuesday’s blog, The Stack is here on this Wednesday with some thoughts on the tragedy in Kansas City regarding the Jovan Belcher murder-suicide so let’s get right to “the stack” for today, Wednesday, December 5:
Jovan Belcher case brings raises questions, confusion
It probably seemed like an ordinary fall Saturday morning during football season for Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel. Doing some extra work, going over the gameplan one final time before going over it with the team later that day before their game the next day against the Carolina Panthers. Little did he know that his life, along with Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and the rest of the Chiefs organization, was about to change forever.
Fifteen minutes from Arrowhead Stadium, Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher got into a heated argument with his girlfriend, 22-year old Kasandra Perkins and shot and killed her. Belcher did this with Perkins mom visiting in the next room. We’ve since found out that Belcher and Perkins relationship had had several problems and that they had been in numerous arguments before and that the Chiefs had even tried to help as much as they could.
