Why are you prying?
This was over 15 years ago. I was angry I don't remember much.
Ask anyone in a fit of rage when you are angry on that level you black out[????].
But the fade of time regarding the issue is more of something I face
as opposed to remembering what she looked like when she was hit.
Jesus, I cannot believe I have to break something down...
I thought you have a Juris Doctorate?
I thought by obtaining a J.D you would employ some learned
critical thinking skills that you've acquired in law school.
1)She hit me from behind (back of my head)
2) I turned around, dropped my things and proceeded to approach her in fury, rage, anger etc
3) I hit her twice....once on the face, second on the chin that dropped her.
4) I proceeded to pick up my things and go home
I don't see how much analyzing you need to do.
I'm sure the in between stuff such as using vulgar language
was present at the time but I don't remember.
Why did I hit her twice?
Well like I said whenever I've gotten into a fight I've always thrown several shots. Perhaps in some indirect way mentally I went easy on her because she was a female. Typically when I was fighting as a kid I would stomp the living hell out of you if you was on the ground. Again, this was over 15 years ago which is the past and I'd like to move forward because that was a violent time in my life.
P.S when I mention "black out" I'm not talking about losing conscious and collapsing I'm referring to the point where you are so enraged that you tend to lose control to the point where you don't remember your actions. That means your primal instinct takes over. Your anger inhibits your frontal lobe and you just lose it and unable to recall the particulars after its over.
Janay Rice has done us all a favor by opening up and explaining her thought process. She repeatedly expresses a desire for this openness to "humanize" herself and her husband, and in this interview, she definitely succeeds. It's easy to judge from the outside, but hopefully her narrative will show how much various social and emotional pressures make it seem, for the person inside the relationship, like staying is the best idea. Yes, leaving is overwhelmingly understood by experts as the long-term goal for someone in an abusive relationship—hanging in and hoping the abuse stops has a dismal track record—but shaming the victims and judging them in hopes of hurrying the process along tends to backfire and makes them more defensive of their relationships. As Janay Rice's interview shows, if you listen, they may just tell you.
