    I doubt that. One punch kills aren't really that feasible.

    Here is the moral of the story:

    If you don't want everyone you know to think you are a piece of ****, then don't beat your wife or girlfriend. If you are famous and you don't want the whole country to think you are a piece of **** (excluding Lowdown for some reason), then don't beat your wife or girlfriend.

    Soul of compassion here.



    No, the media just ginned up the whole thing until the league had no choice but to get rid of him.



    See above.



    That would be your choice.



    As the news media and others were ginning this up with their outrage they might have paused to consider that they were not just hurting Rice but his whole family. Idiots and their stupid moral panic.

    What's the penalty for the crime of knocking out a woman (or any other adult)? It's not a felony. First offence with no criminal history would be a fine of < $1000 in most states.

    And so Rice must lose his career? Seems excessive.



    And the woman gets no say.



    We've heard from a number of people who are very sure they know better how to live Jenet's life than she does.



    And then there are the mind readers and the soothsayers.
    Talk about a cop out...Ray Rice is not responsible for his behavior because his battered wife still loves him???? Really.

    Ray Rice didn't lose his job because the media did anything but expose his actions. Ray Rice lost his job because it is apparent he cannot control himself. I am not celebrity and I would also lose my job if I was charged with and pleaded to domestic violence, or any other range of criminal behavior because my company does not want to employ people like that. Ray Rice has no one to blame but himself. Janay Rice has no one to blame but her husband. To put anything more to it is just asinine.

    As far as deciding on whether or not Ray Rice is a repeat offender or not does not even come into play for me. He has proven himself to be person willing to victimize those weaker than himself. He has proven that he cannot control himself or his temper. We, as a society, have decided that people who victimize the weak and cannot control their anger must be dealt with lest we live in society more cruel and more violent than we already do.

    You suggest that this is the media's fault. The media did not punch Janay and knock her out. The media didn't get even more upset with her because she had the temerity to be knocked out from that one punch. The media did not drag her out of the elevator like she was sack of potatoes. Ray Rice did those things. Now he has to suffer the consequences of those actions. I don't feel sorry for Janay either. She chose her bed and she has to now lie in it. If she didn't want her husband to lose her job for knocking her out she shouldn't have married him then. Janay can live her life as she wants. If she chooses to forgive her husband that is her choice. Society has another choice to make and so far we have made it.

    Well I think if she would have died, it would have been because of the way her head hit the side of the elevator.

Treat repeat offenders as repeat offenders, not people that to the best of your knowledge only did it once.
    Dude, he knocked her unconscious and dumped her body. He dumped her like a sack of garbage.

    How many times does one have to do that to prove he's dangerous?

    Naw. They wouldn't have cared.
    ... Wait... you mean the assault caught on video wouldn't have destroyed his career? Lmao.

    It really doesn't. The NFL, and the Baltimore Ravens, have a right to hire and fire whomever they want. Ray Rice is not entitled to a job with the league.

    The NFL has a code of conduct it expects its players to abide by. Ray Rice broke that code of conduct. His behavior is bad for the image of the National Football League, and therefore they have every right to suspend him from playing in their league as long as they like.

    Domestic violence should never be condoned, implicitly nor explicitly, especially in an arena in which impressionable young people are watching and taking cues.

    Professional football is entertainment, not much different from watching a movie. The NFL as an organization hires players as entertainers. Since a large portion of the entertained audience consists of children and young men, I wholeheartedly agree with the NFL's suspension policy and their enforcement of it.... irrespective of Ray Rice's or his wife's wishes.

    He can always play arena football or in the Canadian league, if they'll have him.

    The only person responsible for destroying Ray Rice's career is Ray Rice. He knew the rules of conduct to be part of the NFL when he signed his contract.
