Ray Rice viciously knocks out his wife
Ed Schultz did women right on The Ed Show by having intelligent commentary from Angela Rye & Zerlina Maxwell on the release of the video by TMZ that shows Ray Rice punching his wife, his then girlfriend with a knockout strike.
Angela Rye's point is prescient. She illustrated that many seem to be more concerned with their pets' rights and well-being than women's. She contrasted the punishment Michael Vick received for dog fighting with a 2 game suspension received by Ray Rice.
Zerlina Maxwell's common sense statement is simple and should shame the NFL. If a woman enters an elevator in a conscious state and leaves unconscious with a man dragging her, then one can infer what occurred without any further video.
Ray Rice has been cut by the Baltimore Ravens and indefinitely suspended by the NFL ... and it's all over the video.
The team just announced it has terminated Rice's contract this afternoon ... hours after TMZ Sports posted the footage of the Pro Bowl running back attacking Janay Palmer in an elevator back in February.
Rice was in the middle of a 5-year $50 million contract he signed with the Ravens back in 2012.
The NFL had previously suspended Rice 2 games for the incident -- but NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell later admitted he screwed up in punishing Rice too lightly ... and instituted harsher punishments -- a 6 game suspension for first time NFL domestic violence offenders.
But ironically Goodell violated his own new policy with an indefinite suspension ... which makes the NFL sound like an organization out of control and ducking for cover.
