Similar Repercussions?


I watched the video of the Florida State football player getting into an altercation with a female at a bar and it has me wondering two things. The first is how much trouble is he going to get in. He’s been dismissed from the team, which I assume means he has lost or will lose his scholarship. He’s also facing a battery charge. This doesn’t seem unreasonable given the video evidence of him punching someone in the face.

The second is how much trouble is she going to get in. I’m in no way defending his actions or implying he should have hit her, but based on the same video that seems to have sealed his fate, she did the same thing. She was the first to raise her fist and the first to throw a punch. Should and will she have a similar repercussions?
