Ray Rice's Lawyer Michael Diamondstein is as Dumb as his Hypothetical

From a legal standpoint the lawyer for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is far from an idiot. He took a bad situation--one where the world saw his client drag his fiancé (now wife) out of an elevator after knocking her out--and got the best ending he could (no jail and a diversionary program).

That being said, as a person he is an idiot and Rice needs to keep him from talking in hypotheticals or any other fashion ever again.

Rice did enough damage by making an analogy to getting knocked down when talking about the incident and subsequent fallout, but whether he did more or his lawyer speaking in hypotheticals did.

This is from a radio appearance Rice's attorney made with a local New Jersey radio station:
 “This is just a complete hypothetical. Let’s assume for the sake of argument, rather than enter into the pretrial diversionary program that [Rice] entered into, we hypothetically move forward on the case. And hypothetically we litigate 100 motions and the video comes out and the video shows — hypothetically speaking now, hypothetically speaking — shows that Ray wasn’t the first person that hit and Ray was getting repeatedly hit but just Ray hit harder, fired one back and hit harder. Hypothetically speaking, and he gets found not guilty. Is that result somehow better? Is it better for the public? Is it better for the Ravens? Is it better for Ray? Is it better for Janay?”
Seriously? Do you really think the 'she hit me first' defense is a valid one? Now if she was a body builder that packed a punch like a 212 pound NFL running back in top physical shape can?

Still no. You don't hit women. There is no excuse for it and no way it is permissible (okay--if she's trying to kill you...).

Your boy was wrong here Mr. Lawyer Man. Don't try to say he wasn't.
