If we’ve learned anything about the modern media and social media in recent years it’s that news travels quickly while bad news seemingly travels at the speed of light.
Today has been a tsunami of bad news for Ravens running back Ray Rice.
More than likely the full story has not yet been told so it’s premature to draw any definitive conclusions. Hopefully what happened between Rice and his fiancée Janay Palmer, is simply a misunderstanding and that soon cooler heads and the truth, whatever that might be, will prevail.
Until then the court of public opinion is in session and while it is, we should all be reminded of our own transgressions.
Good people do make mistakes.
Ray Rice’s track record overwhelming states that he is a good man and for now he deserves the benefit of the doubt even if the alleged evidence suggests otherwise.
