so by now you've heard about ray rice gettin booted outta the nfl for knockin his girlfriend out on an elevator in atlantic city i'm sure .. this is gonna be a two part question so pay attention cause they'll be a test at the end ..
george orwell wrote a book called 1984 about how in the future ( supposedly by 1984 ) we'd all be under the watchful eye of big brother all the time so we wouldn't be able to get away with anything .. and a lot of people don't like the idea of havin camera's up so the police can look in on whats goin on in a bad neighborhood .. or in a business establishment in case they get robbed .. or just for their own protection for insurance fraud for fake injuries .. so what do you guys think about the watchful eye of big brother ?? does it bother you ?? or do you feel like shit won't happen someplace if there's a camera there ?? does it give you a sense of security ??
and now for part two .. do you think the nfl football league tried to ignore this beatin that ray rice gave his girlfriend and it was only because of tmz releasin the actual tape of him knockin her out in the elevator that got them to finally kick him out of the league ?? the league says they didn't know what really happened but the video i saw weeks ago had rice draggin his girlfriend out of the elevator like a dead dog .. how did they think that happened ?? do you think they thought she just passed out even tho he said he hit her ??
do you think the fine and punishment is too stiff for what rice did ?? or not stiff enough ??
do you think there should be some room for forgiveness here ?? that is after he atones for what he's done ??
or do you think he's still a timebomb that can go off at anytime and needs some serious councilin and shouldn't ever be able to play football again unless he undergos some real heavy duty phscy evaluation by some qualified shrinks who can say yay or nay as to when he's ready to return as a condition of his atonement ??
or should the nfl just turn their back on him and let him fend for himself here ?? even considerin the amount of violence they do condone and encourage on the field ??
ok i lied .. there's a bunch of questions .. but i think they're important questions .. and there's no right and wrong answers .. just how you feel about it all .. we may not all agree .. but we might agree on some things .. or most things .. but above all if we discuss it here we might get some insights that we wouldn't get if we just kept it all to ourselves ..
