With new updates and drama unfolding daily for the NFL.. America has forgotten about Ray Rice… He’s old news at this point.
But I wanted to point something out that really… bottom line.. is the most disgusting part about the whole ‘Ray Rice situation’.
He is on PRE-TRIAL INTERVENTION for beating his wife unconscious, which involves anger management classes and community service. Ray Rice’s prosecutor has made a statement saying no ‘sweetheart’ treatment was shown…But I would say otherwise.
This is an excerpt of a statement made by Atlantic City Police Department right after the incident happened in February:
“After reviewing surveillance footage it appeared both parties were involved in a physical altercation. The complaint summons indicates that both Rich [sic] and Palmer struck each other with their hands. The responding officer signed a simple assault complaint against both Rice and Palmer.”
Here is more proof that he got away with it:
ESPN reports that less that 1 percent of domestic violence assault cases in New Jersey end with pre-trial intervention. In the past four years in New Jersey, there have been 15,029 domestic violence cases involving assault. Only 70, or 0.47 percent, have ended with the pre-trial intervention that prosecutors gave Rice.
And when you think it couldn’t get worse..
Rice’s attorney Andrew Alperstein described this as a “very minor physical altercation,” soon after the incident as well.
The real problem with the whole situation is the Government, law enforcement, and attorneys involved covering up this violent act. They didn’t do anything more than leave Rice in a Jail for less time than it takes to watch a movie.
Even if he is suspended indefinitely, the REAL justice hasn’t even been served.
