Post No. 191: The Ray Rice Video Didn't Change Sh__ !
© 2014 the Institute for Applied Common Sense
While I appreciate, from a theoretical perspective, that a video may sometimes provide us with a better appreciation of a situation, I do not see where it should have made a difference here.
Let me review the undisputed facts:
1. Three time Pro Bowler professional football player;
2. Knocks female unconscious;
3. Drags her out of elevator by her hair.
Hmmm. That’s 18 words. Should have taken less than 18 seconds to figure out how to handle this unfortunate situation.
And that's common sense and personal responsibility all rolled up into one notion, and one about which I hope that my target audience, college students, would not think any further.
P.S. You don't even need to know who Ray Rice is or click on the hyperlinks gratuitously provided to figure out what to do in this instance.
