Sandy Banks of the Los Angeles Times shared her thoughts on Chris Brown’s alleged assault of girlfriend Rihanna after reading the search warrant affidavit filed by the Los Angeles Police Department. Banks writes:
The account describes Brown punching, choking and biting Rihanna and her cowering against the car door trying to block her boyfriend’s blows with her legs and arms.
It hurt to read, in part because Chris Brown and Rihanna have been a familiar presence in my house for years, favorites of my teenage daughters. Brown’s picture hung on one daughter’s bedroom wall; Rihanna was a fashion icon for another. I held them in my mind’s eye as the perfect couple.
