I see nothing much has changed while I was away.
The latest case in the national news involves Jovan Belcher, a linebacker with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Police report shows new details in Jovan-Belcher murder suicide
So, the reason for this fatal domestic violence incident, according to this article:
- couple had been arguing for months
- he was angry she was out late
- she reportedly did not talk to him as he thought she should
Honestly, I can’t recall seeing “arguing” as a cause of domestic violence, have you? Or the manner in which a person speaks to another.
He’s painted with a lot of sympathy in this article – he only “reportedly” partied (in quotation marks in the article); he says he’s sorry to his girlfriend (sorry for killing her); his mother and coach are involved; he tells the coach how he wants his children to be taken care of (do killers have that right?)
The victim, on the otherhand, is a mother who went to a concert, had a few drinks, argued with her boyfriend, and spoke in a manner he didn’t like.
