Ray Lewis’ insane message about the double homicide


To add insult to injury — or double homicide — Ray Lewis’ message to the families of the two men stabbed to death in an altercation with Lewis and his crew 13 years ago was less than apologetic.

In an interview with CBS’s Shannon Sharpe aired in Super Bowl XLVII pre-game coverage, the retiring Ravens linebacker said ““If you really knew how God works, he don’t use people who commit anything like that for his glory.”

The sheer arrogance of that statement almost made me forget what he told Sharpe immediately before this bizarre religious defense, an OJ Simpson-esque  attack on “the system,” suggesting that authorities hadn’t properly investigated the crime, saying, “If our system took the time to really investigate what happened 13 years ago, maybe they would have got to the bottom line truth.”

Sharpe let this nonsense go unchallenged and it wasn’t until later in the game when fellow commentator Boomer Esiason took it upon himself to say something sensible on this issue: “He was involved in a double murder, and I’m not so sure he gave us all the answers that we were looking for. He knows what went on there. And he can obviously come out and say it. But he doesn’t want to say it. He paid off the families.”

But both Esiason and Sharpe are right, we don’t know what happened in 2000. I’m just not sure God and the the criminal justice system have anything to do with it.

    First of all, before responding negatively, find out if possible what he meant by that comment. In this article theres no back conversation information. Perhaps he meant that as the bible states, you live by the sword, you die by the sword. Perhaps whoever was the initiater of this attack ended up paying for it, we don’t know.

    It certainly is not heard to believe that newspapers, lawyers, TV and spokespeople spin stories anyway they choose. Thats a fact! There are millions who are painted in the wrong light or are not at liberty to divulge every detail. And HE SHOULD PAY THAT FAMILY!! HE OWES THEM
