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.
