WPCNR POLICE GAZETTE. A Statement on the Ray Rice Contract Termination From My Sisters’ Place, White Plains NY. September 8, 2014:
Today is a historic day for victims and survivors of intimate partner abuse. The NFL and the Ravens team owners have taken a stand with the TMZ release of the Ray Rice assault video at the Revel Hotel in Atlantic City. As the story unfolds, we will here from supporters and detractors alike. People will condemn and praise the NFL and the team owners. It will be up to each individual to maintain their position— No one has the right to abuse you.
The NFL’s decision to suspend Rice indefinitely is another chapter on the road to change. As a society, as sisters, brothers, mothers and fathers, we will say one in four no more. All the PSA’s will not be as impactful as action. Celebrities, athletes and working people live with the same set of rules
It will always be upsetting to My Sisters’ Place to hear or see such violent situations. The NFL is now confirming that which we have done for decades, the magnitude of crimes of domestic violence.
We still have a lot of work to do but today we are witness to a significant step along the way.
