But it's not a big "if". You have just chosen to make judgments on Lewis regardless of the true facts. It fits your personal story to deem him guilty. No one on the police force thought he was directly involved in the killing. They pleaded with the District Attorney to not file charges against him as the Police knew the facts of the case did not substantiate a charge - and they did not, that's why Lewis was never formally charged with the crime.

I'm not trying to change your feelings against Ray Lewis. But you are incorrect when you act as if he got away with murder. That's simply not what happened. Unfortunately for Ray, an unscrupulous District Attorney went after the biggest name instead of actually trying to convict the true perpetrators. Two additional people were found not guilty, and to this day, no person(s) has ever been convicted of this crime because of a DA looking to make news instead of doing the right thing. It's a damn shame but doesn't make Lewis a murderer, anymore than some lying skank in Vegas makes Ben a rapist.
I am not a Ray fan, I do live in Atlanta , have since 95.. The truth is the "boys" attacked Ray and his group with bottles.. - They were drunk and the whole night they were loud talking the club about what they would do.. they decided to demonstrate on Ray - they were drunk.. The end.
I guess folks would feel better if it were Ray laid out on the Mat, choosing not to defend himself..
did those boys Deserve to die.. no.. but when you run naked on the freeway in the Dark a car will hit you eventually.
