Sad story and pretty much tells ray stabbed one of the victims and settled out of court and just shows how f up are courts are as money wins but in the end God has power of all !
Seems to me that all it shows is that two of the guys that he was with stabbed them and all he was doing was being in their group.
Put yourself in his shoes, he's right, anything that would have come out of that night was "on him."
Case in point, how many of the other 7 in their entourage are even even mentioned? They're not mentioned in this piece either.
And it says that shots were fired at his car. Don't know about you, but I'd have hightailed it outta there too.
If his clothes were bloodied, could very easily have been from mere association and being nearby, trying to strip "his guys" off off "the pile" to get outta there, etc.
Here's the thing tho, the victims weren't exactly two clean-cut kids in grad school at Duke who confronted those in Lewis' party with cutting in line or something, sounds like they were semi-thugs. They both had prior records.
Who knows what happened, but I for one believe most
of Lewis' account. Either way, what I don't believe is that he personally put a knife into anyone's chest. There's zero evidence for that. I have no idea why if he didn't he should be convicted of murder as so many insist that he should have been. The settling of the civil suit doesn't mean anything, it happens all the time.
Also, the media trying to make NO associated with Atlanta to me is disingenuous.

English not your first language? There isn't anything in that story that says Ray stabbed someone. In fact, there was never a single piece of evidence or testimony by anyone that at any point ever suggested Ray actually stabbed someone. Was he probably throwing punches, sure, but that does not equate to taking a knife and inserting it into another mans flesh. His two friends should have been convicted, but that doesn't mean Ray took those guys lives personally.
And why no outcry to have the other 7 in his party also charged, and/or some of those in the victims' parties too.
This is all clearly media driven.
I feel bad for Ray who has truly, unlike Belichick, turned his life around after incidents, altho the differences in the two incidents notwithstanding.

Ray is at most an accessory to murder. He's guilty of covering up. He's also guilty of hiding behind the bible to protect his name. If he were a real Christian, he'd forgive the family and fade into the sunset. Every time he publicly mentions god without repenting is a crime. This guy needs some a-hole reporter to make a name for himself at media day. Someone has to have the nads to stand up to ray, while the lights are on, and ask him some serious questions about his faith. We welkers wife was right. Hide behind the bible after participating n 2 guys deaths while not acknowledging your multiple children from multiple mamas. A truly hollow and vile human being. With that said, I'd take him on the bills in a heartbeat! I just hope that the HOF voters pass him over on the first ballot for his past. Yes, he's HOF worthy, just like bonds, McGwire, Clemens, and oj Simpson. But a message will be sent if he has to wait 6 rather than 5 seasons.
And you see no hypocrisy in your post here?
