Ray Rice’s side as Ray spoke at a news conference at the Ravens training center on May 23, 2014 in Owings Mills,

Maryland. It was at that tine that RAY Rice spoke publicly for the first time since facing felony assault charges stemming from a February incident involving Janay at an Atlantic City casino.

We see Janay hunched over  with shoulders rounded in defeat and pursing her lips in anger at having to sit there and listen to her abuser make excuses. She is angry and rightfully so  as her hands reveal. They are balled up into fists. Her pursed lips and jaw tension also shows her anger at having to listen to this toxic man.

As he rambles on she knows what he is saying is nonsense and she fiddles with her hands and digits. She bows her head low in humiliation as she sates down while he is speaking.

Throughout the interview she constantly looked down. Here she fiddles with her hands which are still in a fist like position.

Here we see her hand on her thigh as she begins to scratch herself. this indicates that her  autonomic system is working overtimes and her blood flow has had a sudden surge as she is forced to listen to his lies.

Her autonomic nervous system working overtime to maintain her poise when she is emotionally devastated as she becomes dry mouthed or cotton mouthes and licks her lips. her Ray is saying how he aims to be a better father. She can’t even  look at him as she glances off to the side.

In  order to keep up pretenses and act like everything is all right Janay was forced to speak. She pulled out her notes and speaks in a hoarse voice which indicates she must have gone through a great deal of emotional devastation, However she tries not to reveal how she really feels as she speaks in an emotionless monotone.  her shoulders are hunched over as she, like most victims of abuse says she is at fault and deeply regrets the role she played in all of this.

She looks down in embarrassment and her shoulders are raised and body muscles are tense and tight . She knows what she is saying isn’t true and that she was forced to do this in order for her husband to keep his job and her life. As she says that she is undergoing therapy individually and collectively and how she is going to be a better parent and role model in the community you can see  and hear that she does not believe what she is saying as she shrugs her rounded shoulders and speaks as though she robotically  memorized what she was forced to say. She seemed to be in fear.

And after being pummeled on the elevator and knocked out, it is understandable why she was in such fear for her life and couldn’t even look at the Toxic monster sitting next to her. 

This man deserves to be in prison for the rest of his ice for attempted murder. How dare he do what he did. It is great that the Falcons stepped up and did the right thing and eliminated him from the team. This should have been done long ago. 

What is equally as disturbing as seeing what Ray Rice did to his wife is some of the youtube videos and comments which condone his actions. They say that his wife deserved it for mouthing off to her husband. This mentality is sickening and barbaric. An animals doesn’t even act like this. 

A few years ago I wrote a book called Toxic Men- how to Heal and Deal with Men Who Make Your Life Miserable. I plan to reach out to Janay and give her a copy of this book to help her heal from her abusive relationship with her husband Ray.Like So many abused women, Janay stayed with Ray. WE can;t fault her. She may have wanted to keep up the image for his career. She may also have been afraid to leave because of further abuse from Ray. She may have wanted to stay for the sake of her child. Well now that the cat is out of the bag so to speak,s he needs to leave immediately.

There is no doubt that he will be enraged now that he is no longer a Raven and cannot be signed to any other team. He may very well continue to  take his anger out on his wife and even on their child. Janay needs to leave the home asap  as her safety comes first . Next, she needs to hire a divorce lawyer.

  1. Dr. Glass, I am so glad you wrote about this. I agree 100% she is still being abused. I also like you was watching this “press conference” Only I noticed different body language..Like Rays. He walks in front of his wife while she follows behind. He does not hold her hand, he does not seem to care at all about her..He kept his back to her, did not even offer to pull out the seat for her to sit..and men still do this..gentlemen do. I thought he gave off some terrible vibes and you of course Dr. Glass are correct in your assessment of why his wife was even there. He forced her to do it..He is forcing her to write things on social media to make it look better..I feel a sadness for his wife and child..Abuse doesn’t stop until it is stopped..No respect for yourself and very low self esteem keep good women like Janay from leaving..I pray that they find guidance and start to make the right decisions..

  2. \Ray Rice has earned at least 28.5 million dollars and she has a child with him and a video of him knocking her out cold. If she wanted out, all she would need is a good lawyer (Gloria Allred comes to mind) and she could take him to the cleaners and move on. She’s still with him cause she wants to be.

  3. You meantion that the woman was looking down in humiliation but in actuality in that context and clusters she shows says she suffering from depression and research done by pual ekman says humiliation ( ashamed) = head cast down and away
