Jovan Belcher To Counselor: “I Promise Not To Be Violent Towards Women”
Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, who killed his girlfriend and himself, was part of Male Athletes Against Violence, which campaigns against violence towards women.
The 25-year-old linebacker was a member of MAAV whilst studying at the University of Maine where he played football for three years until he signed with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009…
He and [girlfriend Kassandra] Perkins lived together and three months ago had a baby girl but are said to have rowed frequently.
The horrific murder suicide came one day before a Kansas home game against the Carolina Panthers which went ahead as scheduled.
Just a day after the deaths, the Chiefs would take the field against the Carolina Panthers eventually winning their second game of the season 27-21.
As friends and family try to work out what drove Belcher over the edge, it now seems that in recent years he was a champion of women’s rights.Click here for reuse options!
