Part 1 The Ray Rice Incident:
First of all, by no means am I condoning anyone striking another person, unless you are a UFC fighter. I am simply comparing the Ray Rice incident with the Adrian Peterson incident and these are only my opinions.
First let’s take a look at the Ray Rice incident. When the first video of Rice dragging his then fiance, Janay, out of the elevator at Revel Casino in Atlantic City was released, we all knew what had happened. It didn't take a genius to know what happened, heck I knew and I’m not a rocket scientist. Rice was first suspended for 2 games, then after the second video surfaced, of Rice perpetrating what everyone already knew, Rice was indefinitely suspended. It seems pressure was applied to Roger Goodell, the current National Football League Commissioner and more action was taken, and subsequently, the Baltimore Ravens cut Rice after the second video was released.
