The basis of our legal system is set up that we would rather see ten guilty men go free before we convict one innocent man.
Take a tour of the Internet and find some opinion articles about Lewis that aren't as charitable as the one I provided. The fact is that the "charitable" story says he lied to police. Other articles you find will have authors saying that Lewis would still be in jail if not for his status as a football star.
I remember when it happened. I side with those who believe the district attorney's office did not pursue the matter against Lewis because of his status as a football star.
I'll be rooting for the Niners.
Sport stars especially the powerful NFL can work miracles if they so choose. They have rich and powerful owners that are well connected. Justice......that like Janice Joplin when she sang freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose.
Lyle Alzado tried to warn the public about the NFL......nobody listens until the evidence is overwhelming like against Lance Armstrong and some people are still in denial up to the very minute he finally admitted it. NFL can deflect guilt for anything if there isn't enough credible witnesses.
The people who believe he is innocent only believe it because it wasn't their Son who was murdered. Murder is murder no matter how you look at it. If Ray Lewis was a nobody he would be in jail right now. Charitable work is being done by him through guilt of his own conscience. He isn't the first guy who found God after murdering someone. Plus, he had 4 wives.....were they all wrong about him.
