The Pittsburgh Steelers had a lot of drama about helmets after the Giants game. Pouncey took to Instagram and said he will be choosing what he puts on his helmet from here on out. That's certainly what he did this Sunday against the Denver Broncos. Pouncey has not been shy about his Political Beliefs. He has made it known he supports Donald Trump and does a lot for the Police Community down in the Miami area. It should be noted there is nothing wrong with his Political Beliefs or who he chooses to vote for. This is simply just for the purposes of reporting.
Officer Eric Kelly was shot and killed after responding to assist Officer Stephen Mayhle and Officer Paul Sciullo, who had been shot and killed at the scene of a domestic disturbance.
When Officer Kelly was responding to the aid of Officer Stephen Mayhle and Officer Paul Sciullo he was fired upon. The Officers were able to pull Eric Kelly away from the gunfire. The Officers rescuing Officer Kelly was shot in the hand and the other had a broken leg. Eric Kelly was taken to the hospital where he was treated for his wounds but later died in the hospital. One of the last words that Officer Kelly said was to tell his Wife and Kids that he loved them.
"Tell my wife and kids I love them," Kelly told Officer Timothy McManaway, a colleague from the Zone 5 police station in Highland Park. "I said, "You're going to have to tell them yourself. You're going to have to get through this."
Over 100 rounds were fired in the altercation that killed Officer Kelly. After a four-hour standoff in which the suspect was shot in the legs and chest, he eventually surrendered. The suspect was arrested and charged with three counts of aggravated homicide and assault. The suspect was sentenced to death on June 28, 2011.
Benny Snell had Breonna Taylor's name on his helmet today. Isaiah Buggs had Black Lives Matter on the back of his helmet. Stephon Tuitt and James Washington both did not have anything on the back of their helmets. The Pittsburgh Steelers allowed the players to pick who they wanted on the back of their helmets this week after last week's debacle in regards to Antwon Rose Jr. At least they learned from their mistake in calling for Unity and doing the complete opposite in Week 1. There should never be an issue with having the players pick and choose who they want to honor on their helmets as long as it's approved by the Pittsburgh Steelers Organization ever.
