After a new video surfaced with Ray Rice seen knocking out his now fiancé, the Ravens have released Rice from the team. I completely and utterly….disagree with their decision to do so. In no means am I defending Rice’s actions. In fact I believe that those who commit domestic violence should be kicked out of the league entirely.
I disagree that this video changes anything in my mind about the whole situation. This is a new video that was released of the incident. Before we only had the video of Rice dragging his unconscious fiancé out of the elevator. He was suspended for “domestic violence” charges brought up against him. So……he did hit her. That much we already knew. Don’t see the point of making a further penalty for reasons that we already knew to be clear.
We all know the act was bad….so why does a video apparently open our eyes to it more? I think this was an overreaction to the new released video. This should’ve been done AT THE START of this whole story and not simply because we now see what happened.
I mean it’s not shocking at all of what this video was. He knocked his wife out. How he did it was irrelevant to me and it should be irrelevant to the Ravens organization. I believe Rice should’ve been let go when he was suspended. They had evidence that he hit his wife at the beginning of the investigation and now they have even more proof. So?
