Two guns and cash were stolen in a weekend burglary at the Reisterstown home of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, Baltimore County police confirmed. Police said surveillance video showed that a man entered through a rear window at Rice's home in the northwestern Baltimore suburbs and made off with two guns and $2,000 in cash after ransacking the home. Cpl. Cathleen Batton, a police spokeswoman, said the break-in occurred some time between 8:30 p.m. Friday and 12:50 a.m. Saturday, and was reported to police about 1:20 a.m. Rice was not home at the time, Batton said.

Regarding yet another article in your paper about the Ray Rice incident, The Sun is like a dog with a bone - it just won't give it up ( "Looking for silver lining in the ugliness of the Rice case," Sept. 27). Does anyone remember that the victim of this violence married the perpetrator? Must the NFL and the Ravens take all of the blame? How about a mention that our daughters should be taught not to slap men or anyone else? Confrontation can cause violence. Not that the punch was deserved.

While Stan Ber is correct that Ray Rice only has been indicted, not convicted for the offense of domestic violence, I am puzzled why he hopes that Rice avoids prison time. In recent months, athletes, entertainers, military personnel, and the heir to the DuPont fortune, have received slaps on the wrist for violence against women. (Just today, Minnesota Timberwolves player, Dante Cunningham was accused of choking hs girlfriend).  If Rice is convicted but avoids prison, most Ravens fans will cheer for him, ignoring his offense.  While athletes and entertainers should not be punished solely because of their status, neither should they be given preferential treatment by the courts compared to non-celebrities convicted of similar crimes.

Kudos to all of those mistake-free, perfect folk who stood in line Friday and Saturday to turn in their Ray Rice jerseys ( "Fans line up to turn in their Ray Rice jerseys at M&T Bank Stadium," Sept. 19). I did not know there were so many folk qualified to "cast the first stone" by dint of having never done anything wrong. I wonder how they would handle a "spit in the face" after a night of drinking alcohol with their significant other: would reflex action come into play or would they be like Jesus and do nothing?

Where are the men and women who have committed heinous acts but have surmounted obstacles and turned their lives around? They must be out there and could tell their stories. Michael Vick, where are you? Although I do not condone domestic violence, Ray and Janay Rice were and are working hard to create a new life and still deserve that chance. Jacquelyn L.

Some lucky school is going to have a pretty cool segment of show-and-tell soon: A visit from Ravens star Ray Rice. The Greene Turtle sports bar and Sports Radio 105.7 are sponsoring a contest where one school in the Baltimore region, a kindergarten through eighth grade one, will win face-time with the running back. To get in the running, parents, kids or teachers have to go to one of the 14 Greene Turtle locations and fill out an application. They don't have to buy anything. Kids -- if any kids are reading -- can you imagine how popular you'd be if you were the one to bring Ray Rice to school?

While I do not condone abuse of any kind, the Ray Rice drama is bigger than the Ravens franchise, or Coach John Harbaugh, or the circle of players who gather on their knees in the center of the field at the end of a game in prayerful thanks to a higher power. One wonders how they missed John 8 in the Bible: "But when they continued asking him, he straightened up and said to them, 'Let the one among you who is without sin cast the first stone.'" Are you telling me that Ray Rice is the first and only professional athlete to ever physically abuse a woman or another person?

Ray Rice continues to stand up against bullying by designing a T-shirt that will help raise money to fight the problem. Rice has joined with PACER National Bullying Prevention Center and a shirt company called CustomInk for the Be Good to Each Other campaign, designing a tee with the message: "You can be a hero to someone just by being a friend -- Ray Rice. " Adult versions of the shirt cost $26 and all of the proceeds will go to PACER, an organization that aims to prevent bullying through education.

For the second time since a graphic video surfaced of former Ravens running back Ray Rice punching Janay Rice in a casino elevator, retired linebacker and ESPN NFL analyst Ray Lewis has commented on the domestic-violence incident. Rice's $35 million contract was terminated by the Ravens on Monday. He has been indefinitely suspended by the NFL. "This is a tragic situation what Ray Rice did was inexcusable," Lewis said Sunday morning on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown. "There's no room in our world for what we've seen.

Ray Rice is a true role model ("NFL misses its chance to send a message," July 25). An athlete, actor or other public figure is not a role model simply because they are a public figure. They become role models only when they do something worthy of attention and emulation. Sure, Mr. Rice messed up. But he also demonstrated in full public view the absolute correct way to behave when you do mess up. And how many of us haven't messed up one way or the other? Mr. Rice has taken full responsibility for his actions, with no excuses, justifications or blaming of others.
