What Ta'amu did was far worse and he shouldn't be on the team. He has a serious alcohol problem and he can not be relied on. My point was the conversation immediately switched from vilifying Rainey, he was called a "thug" or a "gangster rapper" among other things
, to demonizing Ta'amu for his behaviour.
As soon as it turns out Rainey didn't actually strike his girlfriend no one says a word. No one says "I guess I was wrong and shouldn't have rushed to judgement." Instead, people say "Yeah well forget about Rainey- look at Ta'amu there's a bad guy."
