In the light of the recent video surfacing of former Ravens football player Ray Rice physical attacking his wife, much debate has been tossed around all over social media.
I wasn’t going to comment, however my disdain for domestic violence prevents me from staying quiet.
The video is DESPICABLE. Ray Rice is seen, spitting on his then fiance’ multiple times, then eventually punching her full force in the face. And as if that wasn’t the worse part, he is then seen dragging her lifeless body through the elevator doors, with absolutely no regard, tapping her with his foot.
It is then when other hotel patrons and security comes to her aid, that Janay comes out of her unconscious state.
Shortly a month later the two wed. In my opinion, in an attempt to save face and salvage his reputation and career.
I feel sorry for her. Domestic Violence is not okay. Since the video footage has been released, his now wife has released statement vowing to stand by her man a midst the social media nightmare they have been going through. Girl BYE!
I am a by product of a marriage filled with Domestic Violence and the pain is unbearable that is sometimes everlasting.
I am satisfied with the NFL’s decision to ban him from the league indefinitely as well as the Ravens decision to terminate his contract with their organization.
Ray Rice must be held accountable for his actions. Just like any other individual in careers that demand the compliance regarding proper moral and ethical practices. Teachers, politicians, athletes, and anyone in an executive position has a duty to uphold the image of the company they represent. They are held to a higher standard and if they feel its unfair they should have a different profession.
You cannot simply beat the hell out of someone, anyone, especially a woman who is your wife, in a PUBLIC PLACE and not be held accountable.
