Cut up your Ray Rice jersey [Letter]

September 12, 2014

The violent attack on Janay Palmer by Ray Rice was deplorable and shocking, and he deserves the price he is paying for his actions.

Janay is the victim, and she deserves our sympathy and prayers. She does not deserve the pain and humiliation cast upon her by the public spectacle of turning in anything that says Rice for other NFL merchandise, jewelry store credit and even food ("Remember the victim," Sept. 10).

Cut up your Ray Rice football jersey and use it for cleaning cloths. Put your Ray Rice jewelry in a box in the back of a dresser drawer just as you would do with any other severed relationship. Take out your checkbook and make a donation to the House of Ruth. Enough is enough.

Mary Beth Tawa, Ellicott City
