In the wake of video of NFL player Ray Rice allegedly knocking his fiancee unconscious, there has been a lot of chatter about justification for his actions. Some folks have attempted to justify Rice hitting his fiancee with the theory that the woman “probably” verbally provoked him or they equally took part in the physical fight therefore blaming her for the fact that she was knocked unconscious. Let me go on record as saying that in my humble opinion there is never any justification for ANYONE to be violent towards their significant other. Placing blame on the woman in instances of assault by men or domestic altercations have become the norm (i.e. Chris Brown and Rihanna). As adults we are responsible for our own self control be it man or woman. If your anger elevates to the to the point where you are considering acts of aggression or violence, it’s your responsibility to remove yourself from the situation. There is never an excuse.
