The reaction to Ryan Lochte’s illegal activities can be described in one word-muted. He and his band of swimming brothers went out for a night on the town in Rio. They partied and then they destroyed property. They were detained by the police and then Lochte lied about the details. He came home to the US and his party buddies are left to answer questions. So where is the outrage? Why aren’t we hearing the talking heads vilifying him or demanding an apology? No one has called him a thug. So tell me why aren’t these gold medal winning swimmers being crucified by the press? You don’t have to tell me I know the answer.
Ryan Lochte lied and destroyed property, is he a thug?
