So police reports were released regarding the incident revolving “Big Ben” Roethlisberger at an Atlanta night club last month, and it was ugly. According to the reports, the accuser, a 20-year old woman who is a college student, was escorted to a hallway by Roethlisberger’s bodyguards in which Roethlisberger soon followed. Supposedly Roethlisberger exposed himself to the woman, she quickly informed him that his actions were unacceptable. She then fled to the bathroom. Roethlisberger followed then proceeded to have sex with her.
If you want to read up on the story, there are plenty of sites for that. This post isn’t to inform you of breaking news, because I’m sure you’ve all heard the details of the report.
This post is just me giving you my opinion. Roethlisberger needs to be punished. I know he wasn’t convicted of anything, but these accusations aren’t to be taken lightly. Think about what might have happened that night. He essentially raped this young woman, and walked away. Treated it like just another night. This is horrible beyond comparison.
I’m all for giving people the benefit of the doubt, but I hope the NFL investigates this to the best of their abilities. This entire situation is a disappointment.
