Listen: NFL, Kareem Hunt And Ray Rice discussed on Afternoon News with Tom Glasgow and Elisa Jaffe
"Well, the sun is going to be gone for a while. We'll have rain likely tonight tomorrow morning as well. So we're going to get a wet start off on our weekend. Sunday, we look for rain also weekend high's, mid upper forties right now in Seattle. We have forty six degrees in February NFL running back Kareem hunt shoved and kicked a woman in a Cleveland hotel and TMZ released video of it. If on the surface, it sounds similar to the Ray rice case in which he knocked out his now wife, you may want to take a closer look as we'll Hobson reports in the Washington Post there are some fundamental differences. He. Spoke with komo's Tom hutler. The biggest difference between Ray rice and Kareem hunt incidents. What are they? There was never any dispute that Ray rice had assaulted. So while it was important for the NFL to try to get the video the NFL's initial punishment for race was indisputably mild admitted you what he did in case on until this video came out Kareem hunt denied that he had this woman. Now, the the details that you put forth here. Mention how difficult it was for the NFL to get the security video in the first place. Police didn't have it the hotel declined to turn it in. But TMZ got it. How could they get it? And not the NFL GMC won't explain. Presumably they paid they paid a hotel employee violated company policy and leaked the video. And there are folks who I mean, I think it's a very reflective reaction to say, well TMC can get this. Why can't the NFL? But I mean, there are some very good reasons why we shouldn't want the NFL just advertising. Hey, if you have any evidence of our players doing wrong, we'll pay upwards of one hundred hundred fifty thousand dollars for that. So the league obviously would want to know this and not be caught flat-footed kind of appears they were. But Kareem hunt was immediately dismissed by the chiefs after this and not being forthright. I think that was maybe not only the incident that occurred with the fact that he had not been forthright with them when asked about this incident, right, right? I think a core issue here is that, you know, there are real questions about how police responded to this. I mean, the reason why this video didn't come out the reason why but he didn't come out to now. The reason why the NFL couldn't get it is because police didn't seem to get it when they responded back in February. If they had that video would have been a public record. And if they had police would have seen back then the cream homeless line, he did assault. This woman still never been charged a crime connects when this incident where your interesting story, you can read the whole thing online at Washington Post dot com. That's komo's Tom hutler.
