I think that the folks in the US Senate should have more important things to be concerned about.

Maybe their letter should have been addressed to the NJ DA office.

Three senators, two from Connecticut and one from Wisconsin, actually think they have anything of importance to say on this issue?

 

Maybe we should just execute Raymell Mourice Rice on national TV and get it over with. :rolleyes:

Pure grandstanding by some attention mongers who don't have a clue.

 

As said above. Why don't they go after the NJ state prosecuter who didn't even take Ray to trial?

Ray Rice said he made a mistake but nobody outside of those who have interviewed Ray and Janay know what happened. His penalties were determined based on the facts of the case. You don't punish an individual beyond his circumstances to make a point for your cause, even if it is a good cause. These senators are a bunch political posers responding to the outrage on the twittersphere, and that is not justice. They need to apologize for their statements to Ray, the Ravens, and the NFL. They won't. Senators ought to pay attention to the despicable job they're doing in running the country.

So know someone can go through the legal system, be judged by their peers and employer and still have congressmen asking for more? Hmmm... this is borderline communism.

communism? hardly. it's pandering/brown-nosing to the whims of the public (anarchy is a better analogy). communism is indifference to it. the question is, which is worse? neither represents optimal governance. you may want to invest in some education via a course in political science.

Just political grandstanding.

SARBANES of maryland in the house of representatives Tuesday, April 9, 2013 Mr. SARBANES. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to submit this poem on behalf of a constituent in my district honoring the Baltimore Ravens for their Super Bowl XLVII win.



Fear the Raven, Something To Rave About! (By Albert Carey Caswell) The . . . The Fire . . . The Unforgettable Fire! When, hearts and souls, and bodies and minds, so meet for but one desire! But, for one goal to so take them all higher! For no other team sport, has such passion and such fire! Or so depends upon their Band of Brothers, to so fashion victory from within themselves to be so inspired! Well, maybe when a great leader says he's going to retire! Feel The Fire! As a child a time ago, stepping out upon those fields of green as so . . .

As a dream few of us will know! To play in The Super Bowl! And to stand on that National stage, as all around you this war is waged! Is but Something To Rave About! For it was in those long hot days of summer, that this great bond was so formed as they encumbered! As against all odds they fought on, young and old, the rookies and Pros . . .

As all around them, the smell of fear in the air stood close! For only a few on opening day, in that uniform shall so be clothed! As its competition at its very height, that which so makes their great hearts shine so bright! And now as it all so comes down to this, 60 minutes, either heartache or bliss! To wear that Super Bowl ring, and hold that Lombardi Trophy up high and sing! ``And shine bright like a diamond, shine bright like a diamond in the sky,'' with but tears in your eyes . . .

...

They're in full pander mode for the women's vote.

In 2005 Congress took the lead on steroids and I thank them for that.

Saw a report on ESPN the other day where Kenny Mayne did a long summary of the backlash against the NFL's punishment and mentioned how the "State of Maryland" chose not to pursue more.

So, so well informed...
