On Saturday, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend and then himself. Now his team wants to recognize him, but what is the right way to do it? Is there one?

In the eyes of the public, Jovan Belcher is a murderer. However, in the eyes of his teammates, he is a fallen member of their squad. They want to pay tribute to him, but is memorializing him so soon the right way to do it?

The team held a moment of silence before the game because of the tragedy, which is fine. Now, they are hanging his jersey in his former locker. His teammate Dwayne Bowe is even wearing a Belcher T-Shirt in tribute. Is this appropriate?
