Don't cast the first stone at Rice [Letter]

September 29, 2014

What a breath of fresh air was the letter from Rachel McClellan ("I'm keeping my Ray Rice jersey," Sept. 24). I don't own a Rice jersey. If I did, I would not only keep it, I would wear it in public. It is always amazing to me how the self-righteous among us can act as if they have the right to "cast the first stone."

To be sure, domestic violence is wrong. In my opinion, all violence is wrong. However, there are always two sides to every incident no matter how egregious it appears.

Finally, I believe there should be consequences for Mr. Rice. On the other hand, I don't believe he was treated fairly by the NFL or the Baltimore Ravens. He who is without sin, let him cast the first stone.
