Last night on ESPN’s Outside The Lines, former Baltimore Ravens Linebacker Ray Lewis gave his thoughts on the Ray Rice situation.
While on his long-winded, yet emotion rant, which Lewis is known to go on from time to time, he says “Sometime, I think we get lost in trying to find out whose head to go after and who to attack now, about what they didn't do. Sometimes we forget why we’re here. We’re here for domestic violence.”
Here is where it takes an odd turn. He goes on to say:
“We’re here because we saw a friend of mine brutally hit his wife in the face in an elevator. There’s some things you can cover up and there’s some things you can’t.”
I guess, in this case, there are just some things that you shouldn't say. For those of you who don’t see the irony in what Ray Lewis is saying, allow me to help you “See the light.” Years ago, Ray Lewis was allegedly involved in a double homicide case. He was at a night club where an altercation erupted between Jason Baker, Richard Lollar and Ray Lewis and his friends Joseph Sweeting and Reginald Oakley. Jason and Richard were found stabbed to death and Lewis and his two friend were charged with murder.
After the spectacle of the court proceedings, many people refer to Ray Lewis as the one who got away with murder. There have me allegations of a cover-up, but things have never came to light to prove it.
Back to more on what Lewis said on Outside The Lines. “Ray Rice put a lot of people at jeopardy, with his actions. A lot of people at jeopardy, not just himself and he needs to understand that because none of this happens if what happened that night in that elevator don’t happen. If I ask for anything in this whole thing, I ask let there be light”, says Lewis.
I guess we are still waiting for light to shine on the murder of Jason Baker and Richard Lollar but I guess as Ray Lewis said, “There’s somethings you can cover up and there’s some things you can’t.”
