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.
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.
