I have been discussing the Chris Brown and Rihanna beating in a vacuum without knowing the true facts of the incident.  There are several things that I have said that have been just wrong and uninformed.  Honestly I have been taking my information concerning Chris Brown and Rihanna from the Television Media and not the online media blogs, newspapers etc that I take political news from.  However I corrected this today by just being nosy and wondering about the 39 year old woman that it is alleged that Chris Brown had an affair with I found out that the Chris Brown and Rihanna incident is horrific.  If everyone is speculating that Chris Brown will one day kill Rihanna the honest truth is he has already attempted to kill her.  With that let’s begin the list of what really happened so we can have an intelligent conversation with children about the incident.  Every parent in Boston should be ashamed that 50% of their teens believe that Rihanna is at fault for what happened to her.  

Here are the supposed Facts that Show Rihanna was in no way responsible for what happened to her.

Fact #1 Chris Brown is Guilty of Attempted Murder

The following two sources are stating that Chris Brown left Rihanna in the middle of the street unconscious bruised and battered. 

The Huffington Post

“He put his hands around her neck and, according to the insider, said, “I’m going to kill you!”

According to the source, the 20-year-old “Disturbia” singer told police that she lost consciousness, and when she awoke, Brown had fled.”

New York Daily News
It was the first time she hit the town since cops found her battered, alone on a dark street and willing to identify Brown as her attacker the morning before the Grammy Awards.

EurWeb

According to the E! Online source, “He reportedly exited the car and tried in vain to find the keys, then grabbed Rihanna’s neck and began choking her, saying, ‘I’m going to kill you!'”

There are no gray areas here.  If Chris Brown choked Rihanna until she was unconscious and left her in the middle of the street unconscious.  He thought he killed her and left her there.  This is without a doubt attempted murder.  While LA is famous for letting women get killed by superstars ie. Phil Spector  and the Actress Lana Clarkson.  Rihanna is a huge superstar and the charges of attempted murder should have been attached to Chris Brown’s name. 

Fact # 2 Rihanna tried to get out of the car, Chris Brown pulled her back in and beat her. 

I am guilty of saying the following about Rihanna could  have gotten out the car.  According to a New York Daily News report Rihanna did get out the car Chris Brown pulled her back in and beat her.

The New York Daily News

Says the Following:

“They started to argue. She got out of the car. He wanted her to get back in, so he grabbed her. She pulled away. That’s when she’s told people he hit her.”

EurWeb Says the following: 

   The Daily News source explained: “She got out of the car. He wanted her to get back in, so he grabbed her. She pulled away. That’s when she’s told people he hit her.”      

Fact #3  Chris Brown had beat Rihanna Before

According to ABC

“If Brown did hit Rihanna early Sunday morning, it might not have been the first time. According to TMZ.com, the 20-year-old pop star told police that Brown had abused her before the weekend attack that reportedly left her bruised and bloodied and that the violence was getting progressively worse. ”

Us Weekly magazine also quoted unnamed sources close to Rihanna who claim this isn’t the first time Brown’s beaten and bruised her.

According to Fox News

” The problem with that, Greta — well, there are several, but one of them is she told cops he did it to her before and it was escalating violence”  

Fact #4 Rihanna is suffering from Battered Wifes Syndrome. “

We all blame Rihanna for going back to Chris Brown but she is suffering from Battered Women’s Syndrome.  This syndrome can ultimately end up in her death as it almost did the night of the Grammys.  There is no where to go but down.  If  Rihanna stays with Chris Brown and he’s not locked up he will eventually kill her. 

Resources for reading up on battered women’s syndrome can be found here: 

Global Oneness Battered Women’s Syndrome

Canadian Medical Journal Battered Wife Syndrome

Finally I’ve done a paper on the Battered Wife syndrome and the thing that any person needs to know is  if a person hits you once in a threatening manner they will hit you again.

 

I am finished with this issue.  I can only pray now.
