Charlie Baker’s reaction to NFL domestic violence

Martha Coakley has put up the video below.

To finish Charlie Baker’s sentence – “If we fired everybody who helped cover up for domestic violence, then there might be a lot less domestic violence.”

I have been thinking about just what it is about the Rice video that puts the behavior in a different class, it is not so much the punch itself, bad as that was. It is his callous behavior after she falls into unconsciousness. An NFL football player hasn’t the strength to gently lift his wife, carry her out of the elevator, and then care for her. He barely manages the energy to drag her most of the way out of the elevator. He shows no indication of realizing what an awful thing he has just done.

If this video makes you want to donate to the Coakley campaign, here is the link.
