Chiefs player kills, literally

Jovan Belcher,25 yr-old NFL starter, killed his girlfriend before killing himself Saturday.   He recently became a NFL starter for the Kansas City Chiefs.  Belcher and his former girlfriend leave behind a 3 month old daughter.   In the CNN article, “NFL linebacker kills his baby’s mother, then himself as coaches look on,” Greg Botelho glorifies the former football player.  With positive quotes, pictures, and descriptions, Botelho makes it seem like Belcher died a hero.  If I just looked at the pictures, I would have thought that this joyous, young man died tragically.  The writer provides a positive feel to a death related incident.  However Botelho’s outlook is way to positive.  I’m sorry but anyone who kills another person and carelessly leaves a baby behind doesn’t deserve such high praise.
