    He's a murderer and I hope there is a hell and he burns in it.

    What a great teammate he was. Except for the part about emptying his gun into a defenseless woman.

    How awful, imagine being those men witnessing that horrible scene.
    Fucking assholes.

    This diary is so on-target I wish I could rec it a thousand times.

      and had a psychotic break from reality.  And then???

      Don't get me wrong.  You may be entirely correct.  And as someone who lost one of his older sisters to a murder-suicide committed by a complete monster, I COMPLETELY understand the emotions behind your post.

      However, there are possible explanations for this tragedy in which Jovan Belcher may not be the monster you and so many others here assume him to be.

      The facts simply aren't in yet.  And no matter how well intentioned, prejudging what happened here in such absolute terms, in the total absence of any context or background information, seems as myopic as what the media is doing.

      Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. --Margaret Mead
