Jovan Belcher's murder of girlfriend, suicide made easy by a gun (Liberal racism by Mike Lupica)
NY Daily News ^ | 12/3/12 | Mike Lupica

Posted on 12/03/2012 5:35:16 AM PST by jimbo123

After the predictable, shocked rhetoric of death about Jovan Belcher of West Babylon High and the Kansas City Chiefs, you still arrived back at the only place that mattered in the last hour of his life: the gun.

You plowed through all the rest of it in the aftermath of what happened Saturday morning outside Arrowhead Stadium, went through the résumé of how many positions Belcher played for Coach Al Ritacco at West Babylon, how he played linebacker at the University of Maine before he became a defensive lineman, and how he was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Chiefs and emerged as a star. All that was relevant in the end, the only relevant job description, was this:

Jovan Belcher, shooter.

Shooter of the mother of his 3-month-old daughter with his own mother in the house, then himself. Maybe we will never find out what brought him to this moment, rage or jealousy or the need to obsessively control Kasandra Michelle Perkins, his girlfriend. Maybe it will turn out to be a brain injury nobody knew about, or something else that caused this madness.

But we do know this: Murdering this young woman, 22, and then killing himself in front of his coach and his general manager was made easy by a gun, because a gun always makes it easier.

One of our local morning radio guys approached it this way - “I can refute this argument in two letters. Not two words, two letters.”

And what were those two letters?

O and J.

A liberal lying news media makes it easy for obama to spread his soviet style propaganda to get his way. The world elite are in full take over mode for the USA. The news media is the gun of the politics.

Belcher was “offended” by the thought that she could “put him on child support”

Yeah, it’s always the gun.

Jettison any notion of personal responsibility and stomp all over the Bill of Rights. That works every time.

Drinking, taking pain killers, a few concussions and living the fast life had nothing to do with it. Only the gun. Just ax any northeast type liberal.

Thugball strikes again

when the perp who is use to a culture where babymommies go on welfare while babydaddies show up the day the check show up...gets a good paying job, like in the NFL, he doesn’t get it when the byotch does not play by his ghetto rules. so he kills her and thankfully himself too.

Before guns there were no murders. No crime. It was the evil gun that brought this plague upon us.

As long as people continue to blame inanimate objects for what is obviously a societal problem, nothing will ever change. This is why Liberals in general have a serious mental problem. And no, I do not say this in jest.

They would prefer to throw blame where it does not belong vs. finding the root cause of why the incident happened and finding ways to eliminate the root cause.

Blaming a gun for the actions of someone who obviously has serious problems is not finding a solution, it’s attempting to cover up a very disturbing aspect of how some people live their lives... before ending their lives and those of other people.

As for the ease of murder aspect. I can, off the top of my head think of dozens of ways he could have easily done it.

Knife her then carbon monoxide poisoning for himself. Drug her then CO poisoning for both. intentional fatal accident. and others.

Blaming the gun is not a solution, it is a symptom of failure to look at the real underlying problem. Which is the liberal mindset in my opinion. Destroyed family values, no faith, no good will. All greed.

Why, I'd almost think Costas and Lupica are part of a coordinated effort to stir a certain pot.

This incident is going to expose the fact that the sports media is perhaps even MORE liberal than the MSM journalists who cover news and politics. As if that is even possible.

The gun made him do it. Belcher was not responsible for his actions. Patronizing white liberals make me sick. They honestly feel people of color are too stupid to make their own decisions and that liberals like themselves will give them the guidance to lead better lives. The nanny state mentality is alive and well even in sports journalism.

These people can’t think of something else to write? Apparently not. Is anyone else appalled that these people will take a murder/suicide and blame it on the gun?

If he could have just stabbed his victim, or beat her to death with a hammer, then that nice football player might still be alive today. That gun made it too easy to kill himself afterward. Terrible shame. /moonbat

If he strangled her to death with his hands, would these LIB pinheads want to ban hands? On the plus side, having killed her and having a gun, he saved the taxpayers a lot of money. It is unfortunate he just didn’t kill him self.

Always amazes me how the sports-media is totally infested with these faggy lib weenies. Lupica is a vile POS to boot. Next time a gangsta linebacker goes psycho, I hope Costas and Lupica are present as ready targets.

A question posed ONLY to point out the absurdity of the article’s premise:

“How much crime would be prevented if blacks weren’t allowed to own guns?”

A man if Belcher’s size could have easily killed her with his hands. What a tragedy for the baby left behind.

Suppose this guy went postal and attempted to take out as many people as he could before comitting hairy cairy?

Or just read a “tabloid” style newspaper from somewhere where personal gun ownership is more restricted. Without even going to today’s edition of the Daily Mail, I can guess that there is at least one story about somebody who murdered their spouse/SO without a gun. If not today then tomorrow. Tins lie this happen and it had nothing to do with a gun.

Lupica and Costas, two 98-lb weaklings who couldn't make the cut as waterboys for a Pop Warner league, can't resist spouting their typical lib-racist tripe. Worthless morons.

Plugged-in toaster into the bath water when she was getting ready for a night out?

Liberals always blame the object instead of the person’s attitude and personnality.

Very sad that he snuffed out someone else’s life and left his child without either parent.

Costas political rant about guns during half-time was terribly offensive to my adult son and daughter and myself -- all of us realizing we were hearing the same old, same old liberal rant.

If he had a knife or even made use of his massive strength, his girl friend was going to die -- the question is what possible damage set him off in so bizarre and tragic manner -- apparently never giving a thought that his child of three months was being orphaned through his actions.

Brain damage -- I think so!

He was a violent thug, with some athletic talent. Haven't we seen this enough times before?

Gun, knife, fists, a club, you-name-it, the instrumentality is not critical, the character of the perpetrator is. Bob Costas and his ilk can look the other way when O.J. (who perpetrated rape while at USC, and had it hushed by USC cash, not to disturb his Heisman) or some other favorite is great on the athletic field. But then, after denying the essential nature of these folks, they want to blame us? Are you kidding me?

Sports "journalism" is a pathetic place. Look at ESPN and its politically correct handling of the Sandusky matter. Nah, not even a word in edgewise to suggest that this was homosexual pederasty, it was "child abuse" in their phrasing. When the Freeh report came out and the evidence of explicit homosexual acts, not acts of violence or submission were included in the repertoire, ESPN just looks past that.

It's as though sports "journalism", the moment they address things outside of the lines of the playing field, is about the most intensely politically correct realm going.

Having the athleticism of an NFL starter and a victim who is willing to share a bed with you makes it easier still.

Lupica and those of his deluded ilk are tough on guns, but dare to suggest that hits in football be banned because of the demonstrable cause and effect studies of dementia, brain damage, and early death, and he goes ballistic.

Selective outrage.
