This Ray Rice incident has been a debacle. NFL management denies seeing the film of Mr. Rice striking his now wife in the elevator. Yet receipt of the video was apparently confirmed by an NFL employee. It is interesting how the NFL and the Ravens violated a basic principle of workplace discipline. It's called double jeopardy. Double jeopardy occurs when an employee has been disciplined for an infraction and then a few months later the management decides the disciplinary action was not severe enough and enacts a more severe penalty.

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.

Lawyers for a Baltimore police officer said he was legally authorized to kill a shar-pei in June and was acting to protect the unborn child of a woman the dog had bitten — an argument the bite victim said she was shocked to hear. Jeffrey Bolger, a 22-year veteran, is charged with slitting the throat of the dog, named Nala. Bolger is alleged to have killed the dog even though it already had been brought under control with a dog pole. Bolger appeared in court Thursday, and his attorney entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf to two counts of animal mutilation, one of animal cruelty and one of misconduct in office.

Janay Rice's public message today about the Ravens' decision to cut her husband, running back Ray Rice, and the NFL's decision to ban him for life after a video was published showing him knocking her unconscious is likely to have precisely the opposite of the effect she desired, drawing more attention to what is for her, a painful family matter. In a post on her Instagram account, Ms. Rice condemned the media and the public for causing her family anguish and forcing them to relive "a moment we regret every day. " She added: "If your intentions were to hurt us, embarrass us, make us feel alone, take all happiness away, you've succeeded on so many levels.
