Another NFL player involved in a domestic violence incident. This time the player is New York Giants safety Kamrin Moore.
The incident occurred outside of Moore’s house. According to Ryan Dunleavy of NJ.com, Moore was charged with third-degree aggravated assault. He is accused of stepping on a woman’s neck and punching her unconscious.
According to the affidavit, Moore met the woman in January and they began dating. The Giants announced Moore’s suspension on Twitter.
“New York Giants safety Kamrin Moore was arrested over the weekend in Linden, New Jersey, for an alleged domestic violence-related incident. Moore has been suspended by the team pending further investigation.
Moore was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in 2018. Last September he was claimed by the Giants off waivers. He played in two games for the Giants last season.
Under the NFL’s policy since 2016, players involved in a domestic violence incident could be suspended or six games and could possibly receive a lifetime ban for a subsequent offense, according to Dennis Young of the New York Daily News.
The Moore incident means that the NFL still has a domestic violence problem. The NFL doesn’t care about women. While the NFL will say that they take these cases seriously, the reality is they don’t.
According to Brent Schrotenboer of USA TODAY, as of October 2014 law enforcement authorities have pursued 50 domestic violence cases against NFL players. In 16 of those cases, the NFL didn’t suspend the player. In at least 14 of those cases, the team suspended the player for just one or two games.
More recently Josh Brown got just one game at first, Junior Galette got two games and Jameis Winston got three games for groping an Uber driver.
The NFL has failed to live up to its policy of suspending players who are involved in domestic violence for six games. Most players get three games or less or no suspension.
The NFL is for domestic violence, not against it. The league also doesn’t care about women.
The NFL should suspend players involved in domestic violence for the season, or the rest of the season if the incident happens during the season.
Moore should be suspended for the upcoming season. However there ‘s a good chance the NFL won’t suspend him.
The NFL’s policy and attitude toward domestic violence needs to change. Until then the NFL will continue not caring about women.
