Ray Rice cold cocked his fiancee' in an Atlantic City casino elevator. That, we all agree is pretty low. In fact one might argue there's not much lower one can do.
For all the bungling, and mishandling done by the Baltimore Ravens organization, and the NFL Offices why are they the ones catching all the shit?
Ummm - Atlantic City Police, and Atlantic City District Attorney's Office, I'm talking to you. Does the NFL have subpoena power to get the casino to hand over the elevator tape? While I don't believe for a second that the NFL, nor the Baltimore Ravens, did not see the elevator video till just the other day, it's at least plausible that they did not. If the Atlantic City Police didn't see it, it's grossly negligent. Here's how I'd expect law enforcement would handle that based on the lobby video.
"Oh wow. He's dragging an unconscious woman out of the elevator. We're gonna need the security video from the elevator."
There's not an enterprise in the world with more security video than a casino, so you know the Atlantic City PD, and DA knew that it was there. There's no way they DIDN'T know. Once they got the video, and see him cold cock his fiancee' HOW is he only charged with a misdemeanor, and a plea deal that can be expunged once he finishes his court ordered therapy?
The NFL and the Baltimore Ravens are dealing with a PR situation at worst. People are pissed at that more than they are at anything else. They're calling for the resignation of Roger Goodell. Why? They're businesses. That's what they do. Really, who cares about PR? Atlantic City DA - what the fuck? You're in charge of public safety, and prosecuting
