In December 2012 Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend. Then he drove to Arrowhead Stadium thanked his coach for the opportunity to play and shot himself dead in the parking lot.
Now, Jovan’s mother is suing the Kansas City Chiefs for her son’s murder-suicide.
It’s the Chief’s fault.
The Kansas City Star reported:
Jovan Belcher’s mother has filed a wrongful-death suit against the Chiefs, seeking unspecified damages after the former linebacker killed his girlfriend and himself in December 2012.
The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Jackson County circuit court, alleges that Belcher “unknowingly sacrificed his brain” during a four-year career with the Chiefs. It also alleges that the team failed to protect Belcher and his safety and knew, or should’ve known, that Belcher showed signs of cognitive and neuro-psychiatric impairment.
Belcher’s body was exhumed at the request of his family at the North Babylon Cemetery in Bay Shore, N.Y., two weeks ago. His brain is being examined for evidence of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE. The family is awaiting final results.
The lawsuit filed Tuesday alleges “wrongful conduct” by the Chiefs that “destroyed multiple lives.” The suit specifically mentions CTE many times.
Let’s face it. The left won’t be happy until the NFL is banned in America. Junk lawsuits like this will drive the NFL into bankruptcy.
