Reader: Ex-Bronco's Alleged Rape Wasn't Worse Than Ray Rice's Fiancee Punching
D-Mac and Alfred Williams, afternoon-drive co-hosts on 104.3 The Fan, recently argued that the actions of ex-Bronco Perrish Cox, who was accused (and later acquitted) of rape after impregnating the women who made the claim, were worse than those of Ray Rice, a Baltimore Ravens running back caught on video punching out his then-fiancee/now-wife. This argument spurred more in our comments section. Here's the view of a Cox defender.
Eme Ikwuakor writes:
It's not worse. She claimed that she was raped because she "woke up feeling like she had sex." She agreed to making out with him and it was consensual. How is he a pig? They were both trashed and had sex. Even he was like "what the hell happened." And it is bullshit because they released him before the court system even played out.
