Van Susteren: NFL Wrong to Punish All Over Deeds of 'Thugs'

By    |   Monday, 22 Sep 2014 07:31 PM

Fox News Channel host Greta Van Susteren says it's unfair to punish every employee of the National Football League by sending them to domestic violence classes over the actions of a couple of "thugs."

In a series of tweets, Van Susteren blasted the NFL's decision:



"It's like in a big corporation, one guy pinches a woman and suddenly all of us are in sexual harassment classes," Van Susteren said Monday on Fox's "Your World with Neil Cavuto."

"The rest of us know how to behave."

Van Susteren said the league panicked after the case of former Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice blew up. Rice initially received a two-game suspension for hitting his then-fiancee earlier this year. After a second video, showing the actual punch, was released by TMZ Sports, Rice was released by the team and suspended indefinitely by the league.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has been under fire to do more after other cases of domestic abuse and child abuse were revealed. But Van Susteren said the men all knew that what they were doing was wrong, and it isn't right to try to educate the whole league.

"The rest of us do know it's a crime," she said. "You can't beat somebody unconscious. You go to jail, usually."
