Carol Costelleo CNN anchor decided to speak out about the recent NFL controversy involving player Ray Rice (who knocked his wife unconscious), his coach John Harbaugh (who thinks “it’s not a big deal”), the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (who believes “justice” has been served by a two-game suspension), the Baltimore Ravens’ Twitter page (who claims that Janay Rice herself “deeply regrets the role she played the night of the incident”), and ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith (who chose to focus on the “elements of provocation”).Costello admitted to have been a victim of domestic violence herself, and found the need to address how the male-dominated sports world is downplaying the importance of Rice’s acts with not only a soft punishment, but also placing the blame on the domestic violence survivor.She leaves us with the reminder that “one in four women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime,” and that “one-third of female homicide victims are killed by their current or former partner.”
