Inside the Kansas City home that Jovan Belcher fled, his baby daughter wailed, his mother was in hysterics and his girlfriend was quiet. Barely breathing.
This is what the NFL linebacker left behind on Saturday in a rush of violence that left many wondering why.
Few answers came from 911 tapes released this week by police. But the tapes provide a heartbreaking soundtrack of the fleeting moments the morning that police say Belcher killed his girlfriend Kassandra Perkins and then later turned the gun on himself just outside the front door of the Chiefs' practice facility.
"Oh my God. Oh my God. Kasi," Belcher's mother, Cheryl Shepherd, bawled. "The baby is crying ... Please get the ambulance here!"
My heart reaches out to all of those involved. Fire arms are responsible for do many crimes.
It is time we stop allowing people to have guns. Fire arms are directly responsible for thousands of crimes and deaths each year. This isn't the 1800s. People don't have to hunt for their food and no longer need guns.
The part you have inaudible, they are saying Chiefs stadium. Chiefs is the word you have missing
This is such a sad story.
If he wanted to commit suicide, that's his deal, but to take out the mother of his child and leaving that child an orphan is simply inexcusable.
What a selfish act.
The gun is the root cause.
It was the selfish man that pulled the trigger that was the root cause.
Another example of two innocents loosing their lives because of guns. Guns – we done need em.
One innocent, and the suicide of the person who murdered her.
I invite anybody who is against my rights to leave my country.
It's not your country anymore.
leave fool, and im a multi gun owner.
Owning a gun is not a right. It is a wrong.
Its the PERSON behind the trigger of that gun thats responsible! sheesh! The gun couldnt nor wouldnt have done this selfish thing, that was the actions of an unstable human! Everyone is responsible for their own actions!
