Advance warning: today’s Jacquie Straight Up may ruffle your feathers and stir your emotions. I’m weighing in on the controversial subject of domestic abuse, sparked by NFL star Ray Rice’s recent assault on his finance.
Admittedly, my opinions on the root issues here may have you nodding your head in agreement, or perhaps sputtering in disbelief…but either way, I’m sure you’ll agree it’s a sobering topic that demands our attention, reflection, and action.
Now to my thoughts on the matter…
So much has already been said about what punishment is appropriate for a guy like Ray Rice. And so much has been said about his then fiance and now wife, Janay, who went ahead and married him after the assault happened, and is now standing by her man.
