Man, if this is what is passing off as love these days then consider me not worthy of it.  My hurt breaks for Mrs. Rice, but not because she had to relive what happened to her.  My heart breaks for her because she believes its what the MEDIA has done that has cause pain to her family.  Maybe she thinks a man putting his hands on her is love.  I don't know, but at the end of the day who am I to judge.  I just pray that she and Ray get the help that they deserve so that they don't spread this pathology to their child.  Love knows no bounds, but sometimes a fist to the face might just be a wake-up call.  Maybe its just me.

  1. I don't know what this couple has done to mend their relationship since this incident. I don't know if they have sought counseling. I also do not know if any further abuse has occurred. The incident occurred in mid-February. He was arrested and charged. Instead of jail, he got into some program. if this was a one-time incident, everyone opinion is about 7 months late.

    So she is reliving an incident perhaps that they both were trying to move on from. In a way, I understand her point IF in fact things are getting better between the two of them. The NFL season is underway and his initial punishment was just handed down. That is why the media is all over it right now.

    What baffles me is why the change in punishment because the video emerged? The facts of the case were known before the video was released. If I knew before the video was released that Ray Rice knocked her unconscious, then surely the Roger Goddell and NFL officials knew. The visual is disturbing, but the initial video of her being dragged out of the elevator wasn't disturbing enough?

    Like I said, I don't know what has occurred in their relationship since the incident in February. She went on to marry him. Sometimes the state won't even pursue charges if the victim doesn't want charges brought. So it is hard to advocate for people when they won't advocate for themselves. So I'm sure that everyone's commentary on what she should and shouldn't do is not welcome.
