White House Chimes in on Ray Rice

As predicted the White House yesterday already chimed in with a statement about the Ray Rice news after the video was released Monday.  Rice was cut the Ravens then suspended by the NFL

The White House took no time to get involved with the situation with the following statement:

“The president is the father of two daughters. And like any American, he believes that domestic violence is contemptible and unacceptable in a civilized society,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement.  Hitting a woman is not something a real man does, and that’s true whether or not an act of violence happens in the public eye, or, far too often, behind closed doors.  Stopping domestic violence is something that’s bigger than football — and all of us have a responsibility to put a stop to it.”

I will agree with the statement, there is no place in today’s society for such actions.  It is unacceptable.

If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic abuse, get help, please.  No one deserves to be treated in such a way, ever.

There is a national domestic abuse hotline:  1-800-799-SAFE that’s 1-800-799-7233
